‘Fortnite’ Player Recreates Rapture From ‘BioShock’ In Battle Royale
You can now explore BioShock‘s art deco Utopia of Rapture in Fortnitethanks to the work of a player using the creative mode of the game.
Creator FluxCapacimoose uploaded a two-minute video of their creation on August 10, even going so far as to include the level code in the title of the video, so anyone can easily take a trip under it. Atlantic Ocean in the Submerged City (via PCGamesN).
FluxCapacimoose did another Rapture tribute last year, which you can check out here. The new video can also be viewed below.
The creation is so well done that the game’s sound effects, commercials, and the whole feel of Rapture are recreated almost verbatim. You can even say “welcome to the circus of values!” as well.
“I thought I’d pay another tribute to one of my favorite games of all time – BioShock — and create another up-to-date map that hopefully captures the look of Rapture,” FluxCapacimoose wrote.
This second version of the map was made due to improvements made to FortniteCreative Mode, such as the Sky Dome, new lighting fixtures, and city building, which helped FluxCapacimoose make an even more accurate depiction of BioShock.
Last month NME writer Andy Brown explained why, after 15 years, BioShock is still one of the most atmospheric and desperate shooters. “The constant fear that another Big Daddy will catch you empty-handed means you have to get creative with your daily violence,” Brown adds that “BioShock Rarely leaves you with the back foot, but a full toolbox means your back never really hits the wall – as long as you’re smart.
Although official, unlike this creation, Fortnite is also set to crossover with manga and anime series dragonball next week, after months of crossover leaks and rumors circulating online. Exactly what the crossover entails remains to be seen, although we can probably expect skins for famous characters like Goku and Vegeta, as well as new modes and unlocks.
