A BioShock fan wanted to pay tribute to Rapture, the underwater city that is the main setting for the first two games in this series. So, they recreated it in Fortnite, complete with a rain filter and a squid that replaces the standard pickaxe. Neon lighting was added to the exterior buildings to finish things off and give it the ambience of BioShock.
For those who have never played any of the BioShock games, Rapture is a city basically designed to be entirely self-supporting, with all of its electricity, food production, water purification and defense systems powered by undersea volcanic vents. A large population emigrated to the hidden city during the years between 1946 and 1952, sparking conspiracy theories on the surface about mass disappearances that came to be known as “The Vanishing”. If Nintendo eventually acquires Take-Two Interactive, we could see BioShock on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, or at least a virtual console version.

So it’s been over a year since I made my first Rapture map, and although I’m proud of it, with all the improvements in Creative mode since – the sky dome, the lighting, city props etc – I just had to have another go and try to capture the look and feel of Andrew Ryan’ city under the sea,” said its creator Flux_Capacimoose.
