To reach youth on their native turf, the Royal Canadian Legion created Remembrance Island, a custom memorial to Veterans inside Fortnite. Featuring WWI trenches, D-Day beaches, cemetery, cenotaph and more, there is no battle on here. Only respect for the sacrifices of Canada’s fallen soldiers.
The idea was to create a place where youth could learn about the men and women who gave their lives to protect the freedom we enjoy today. It is ever more important to reach young people and tell the story of Canadian Veterans in ways they will respond to. Unlike standard Fortnite gameplay, the only objective for gamers on Remembrance Island is to discover the 30 museum-like information plaques and follow the poppies until they reach a memorial cenotaph at a central point of the map. And of course, there is no fighting, damage or weaponry on Remembrance Island.
