SEASON 8 of Fortnite is well under way, but those of you pining for the classic map are in luck.
Fortnite Creative mode lets players build their own islands which they can share with the community using an affiliated island code.
TheBoyDilly announced he was working on the original map from Fortnite Chapter 1, Season 2 last week.
It features classic locations such as Dusty Depot, Greasy Grove, and Tilted Towers.
The Athena Royale map is now live – and the community feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, judging by the YouTube comments section.
Usually a fetid cesspool brimming with vitriol, the comments under this particular video are are surprisingly wholesome.
"Just came to say how amazing this map is, I played it non stop today, brings back so many memories!" reads one.
"Literally feels like we never left. Good job man," said another.
One commentor even said they were reduced to tears when looking at the map with a friend.
Fortnite's map has undergone a slew of changes since the game first launched in 2017.
