Today Epic Games announced that all Fortnite content, whether first-party or third-party, will be mandated to have an age rating starting next month. 

According to the announcement, this change will become effective on November 14.

The rating will be provided by IARc, the International Age Rating Coalition, and the decision fits Fortnite's evolution from a single game to a metaverse

Users looking to publish their island on Fortnite will now have to fill out a IARC content rating questionnaire that will be reviewed by Epic Games' moderators. 

When the review is complete, the island will receive a rating that will be automatically applied to the content and displayed prominently before it's accessed by other users. 

Regional rating authorities can also apply their own changes to these ratings after the island is published based on their own specific review.

The IARC questionnaire will become available in the Creator Portal on October 16. Islands that have not received a rating on November 14 will be delisted, so users are encouraged to get their questionnaires in as soon as possible. 

I certainly wonder what kind of rating Shell Island will receive, considering how it targets young players for reasons that may not be entirely in line with climate-friendly goals. 

This comes hot on the heels of the reveal of the island created by Keoken Interactive and dedicated to Deliver Us the Moon

In other Epic Games news, the company has been affected by extensive layoffs last week, affecting 830 employees, 16% of the previous workforce.
