If you haven’t already heard of it, Fortnite is the fastest growing game in the history of games (125 million players in less than a year), and many teens and even adults are playing.
If you’re a parent and your son or daughter plays the game, you may want to know a little about it–and maybe even know what they are talking about when they say “Did you grab the minis?” or “Let’s go tilted”.
For those of you who are interested in learning more about Fortnite, here are some screenshots of the major cities on the Fortnite island to give you an idea of how Fortnite designs cities. (Click on the picture for a larger view.)
Disclaimer: Keep in mind that since this post has been written, different locations have been removed, or new locations have been added.
1. Lucky Landing
This beautiful Japanese themed town has nice homes and many trees. It is very colorful. However, compared to other cities and towns, very small.
2. Frosty Flights
In this snowy wasteland lies “Frosty Flights”, a hangar for airplanes, and also serves as a research center.
3. Retail Row
This is a larger Fortnite location, and consists of a couple houses, but mainly grocery store and shops, hence the name “Retail” Row.
4. Loot Lake
At this huge scenic location with rivers, lakes, islands, and waterfalls, you are sure to be impressed.
5. Polar Peak
This snowy, mountain-top castle is sure to take your breath away with these beautiful castle-themed houses.
6. Lazy Lagoon
To top of these beautiful and extremely detailed pirate style houses, there is also an enormous pirate ship.
7. Sunny Steps
These gigantic, Mayan themed temples are my personal favorite because of how beautiful and colorful they are.
8. Happy Hamlet
At this snowy location packed with beautiful houses, it looks like urban planning has been put to work.
9. Tilted Towers
This location is the most popular one in Fortnite, and it has many well-designed apartments, buildings, and a central square.
10. Paradise Palms
In the middle of the desert biome is this small city with many modern designed houses, some industrial buildings, and a huge open-air hotel.
11. The Block
“The Block” is an area where Fortnite puts the best builds of the month on a block, hence the name, so everyone can be blown away.
12. Fatal Fields
This location is farmland with a house, some barns, silos, windmills, anything you would find at a farm in real life.
13. Salty Springs
Salty Springs is even smaller than your average town with only a shop and 5 houses, however a lot of greenery to make up for it.
These are the major cities on the Fortnite island, but it is also possible to play Fortnite in “creative mode” and construct your own cities. If this post is popular and you leave a comment, I’ll create another post with some of the most interesting creative mode cities.

Thank you, Grant. I would love to see more. I realize that these are sites on an island that doesn’t have any major cities. At least that’s what I gather from your interesting post. I have not played or read about the game but have seen references to it. I write a blog about architecture and am planning to compare Fortnite places to places (from history) in the Assassin’s Creed video game series. If you have any thoughts on such a comparison, I’d love to hear from you. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org and my blog is https://ArchitectureHereAndThere.com
Man, it is crazy to look back at some of these places from even 6 months ago. So much has changed.
