This initiative allows not only developers but also users to generate new locations and maps in Fortnite. Each map is monetized when a player spends a lot of time on it, completing tasks or buying skins.


Fedorov noted that the more time a player spends on the map, the more money goes to restore the Prybuzka outpatient clinic through United24. All funds raised will be used for this charitable purpose.


The idea of creating The Donation Map with Maidan Nezalezhnosti was proposed by Havas Play from Paris and implemented by Havas Dgtl Kyiv. You can join the initiative by following the appropriate link.


As you know, Fortnite is one of the most popular online games in the world. As of 2024, more than 500 million players have registered for the game. The game is available on various platforms, such as PC, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox X/S Series.
