Fortnite: devs confirm a ‘Disable Pre-Edit’ setting is coming soon

Pre-editing is unpopular among Fortnite Fans. Now Epic Games have committed to adding a feature that allows you to disable pre-edits.

Published

Fortnite fans have wanted Epic Games to allow them to disable pre-editing structures for a long time. Now the developers have promised that they plan to put add this feature to Season 5 in the future.

Constructing and placing structures is one of the most notable aspects of Fortnite. You can build a variety of different forms that can be used as protective barriers, or for reaching high areas. However, pre-editing structures is something that doesn’t sit well with fans.

Pre-edits are preset structures that you can edit before placing them somewhere. This was once a helpful mechanic, but many players have lost games due to it. You might accidentally put a hole or opening in your design which will leave you vulnerable to enemies.

The problems with this feature have led to Fortnite players demanding that Epic Games implement a “Disable Pre-Edit” setting. This would allow players to turn it off so that they can’t accidentally pre-editing their structures before placing them.

We expected this to arrive in v15.10, but we discovered that this wasn’t the case when the update went live. Instead, the developers added a setting that lets you reset your pre-edits by leaving build mode, and then going back in.

This doesn’t resolve the issue, and most members of the community are united in that stance. Epic Games came to realize this, and made a post on the official Fortnite Status Twitter account, stating that they’re listening to fans’ complaints. They reassured players that they plan to adjust the setting in early 2021.

Pre-edits can be a huge hindrance when you’re in a hurry to build and edit something. Being able to disable them would allow you to select builds to edit in a more easily manageable state, regardless of what blueprint you’re holding at that moment.

Although it’s disappointing that the feature wasn’t implemented with the latest update, it’s still a relief to hear that we’ll be getting it soon. We’ve been waiting for this change for years, and it will be here in a few week’s time.

We’ll keep you updated when Epic Games finally add this feature to Fortnite Season 5. Until then, there’s a lot of other content to look forward to during Operation Snowdown.

Fortnite Season 7’s Rift Tour event is officially on the way, with leaks claiming that singer and actress Ariana Grande will host her own concert, and have an ICON Series skin. Here’s everything we know about the event, including the start date.

Fortnite has seen several in-game events such as the Cosmic Summer Celebration, Rainbow Royale event, and even a Travis Scott concert. Now, it seems that another concert event will be coming to the game.

When is the Fortnite Rift Tour Ariana Grande concert?

While Epic Games haven’t officially confirmed that it’s Ariana Grande who will be performing this weekend, leaks and data mines have pretty much guaranteed that it’s the ‘7 rings’ singer.

According to the Rift Tour tab inside the game, there will be five performances across two days, starting on August 6 with the Americas, and a global concert on August 7. You can view the full schedule below.

Fortnite Ariana Grande skin

Ariana Grande gave fans a first look at her official skin on Sunday, August 1, uploading a video of it in-game to her official Instagram page.

The character features her signature ponytail, and an outfit that appears to be made out of Zero Point crystals.

How much will the Fortnite Ariana Grande skin cost?

When Travis Scott came to Fortnite as a new skin, he was available as part of the battle royale’s ICON Series. The Ariana Grande skin will probably be released through the same means.

In that case, the skin will cost around 1,500 V-Bucks. This is the same price set for recent ICON Series skins like World Cup winner Bugha and NBA superstar Lebron James.

There will also be other cosmetics that arrive as part of the concert event, but details regarding all of this have been scarce. So we don’t know the exact price for these items, but we expect them to cost the same as previous Icon Series cosmetic sets.

Fortnite Season 7 Kymera and alien invasion

With Season 8 set to start in September, the Ariana Grande concert event might be a fantastic way to make the final month of Season 7 more memorable. So far, Epic Games have been keeping it under wraps.

We’ll keep checking for more news regarding this and will be sure to update this article as we learn more. Stay tuned to Charlie INTEL for updates, and check out how to complete all the Ferrari challenges in Fortnite.
