Last year at The Game Awards Epic Games announced the 50v50 LTM mode and are set for another big reveal at TGA 2018.
It had been thought that the Fortnite creative mode was going to get announced at The Game Awards 2018.
Epic Games officially unveiled the Fortnite creative mode after leaks revealed the big season 7 addition.
However, Epic’s Nick Chester has said that Fortnite creative is NOT what was planned for The Game Awards 2018.

And Chester added that Fortnite fans will want to tune into The Game Awards 2018 to see the announcement.
He tweeted: “Oh, and this is not the thing we have at The Game Awards.
“So be sure to check that out tomorrow night, too”.
So what could it be that Epic Games has planned for The Game Awards 2018?

It’s been rumoured that a Wreck-It-Ralph LTM is planned for Fortnite, so this could be what gets revealed at The Game Awards 2018.
Rumours of a Fortnite Wreck-It-Ralph LTM surfaced after the Disney character was spotted on the cinema screen located on the Battle Royale map.
The Wreck-It Ralph sequel, Ralph Breaks The Internet, was released last month.
So a Fortnite LTM might be the perfect way to promote the Disney movie that’s set within the world of video games.

Epic Games aren’t strangers to doing movie tie-ins, with a Fortnite Avengers LTM previously launched that featured Thanos.
This Fortnite Avengers LTM was released not long after Avengers Infinity War hit the cinemas.
Another possible announcement that Epic Games may have planned for The Game Awards 2018 is the release of a Christmas LTM.

But this might be just a little bit too early, with that festive event possibly launching closer to December 25.
