For one, the Fortnite Unreal Editor is a completely separate application from Fortnite itself. Instead of editing in Creative Mode, developers will edit directly in the new app.

This includes multiple new features (as listed on Epic's website):

  • Create custom content with Modeling and Material tools.
  • Import meshes, textures, animations, and audio.
  • Use Niagara to create VFX effects.
  • Animate with Control Rig and Sequencer.
  • Design gameplay with Verse.
  • Build Landscapes to create and flesh out the environment.
  • Create larger experiences with World Partition.
  • Use Fab to discover and import assets.
  • Use Live Edit to collaborate in real-time with others.
  • Integrated Revision Control to collaborate with Unreal Revision Control

The craziest part about this is that Epic Games has given access to many of the tools they have used to create Fortnite to the creator fanbase.

With how popular creative has been getting these past few years, we should expect to see entire games developed within Fortnite.

It is starting to look like Fortnite is becoming the next Roblox.
