Fortnite was born as a cooperative video game, but rose to fame thanks to the Battle Royale mode. Its evolution continues and the next big step is to embrace the Metaverse, with fan-made level creations and experiences at its core. As part of these efforts, Epic Games will implement a new rating system.

How does the new Fortnite ranking system work?
Level or Island creators must complete a content rating questionnaire starting October 16. After completing it, they will need to submit the project for Epic Games moderators to review and publish.
The new system will be implemented on November 14, and all creations must be age-rated by then. Otherwise, the company will delete all projects that have not been reviewed. Luckily, it seems that answering the questionnaire is a simple process. You can find the instructions here.
