The public beta of Unreal Editor for Fortnite has finally arrived, promising players they’ll be able to bring their wildest ideas to life.
Fortnite’s evolution has been surprising, considering its origins as a Tower Defense game that initially struggled to gain a large following.
Its switch to focus on battle royale changed everything though and things have only continued to expand since then, with the introduction of Creative mode in 2018.
Now, Epic Games has released Unreal Editor for Fortnite, which kickstarts a new era for the game’s Creative mode, dubbed Creative 2.0.
Although it’s still in its infancy, the Creative 2.0 update has been well-received by most players, as you’re not only able to create more refined custom content and landscapes but also design gameplay and even collaborate with others in real-time.
Creating VFX effects and allowing players to create animations are also part of the new features.
At the moment, Unreal Editor for Fortnite is only available on PC, although creations can be played on all platforms.
Creative 2.0 is powered by Unreal Engine 5, the game development tool created by Epic Games, which has already been used in several high-profile game titles.
With the introduction of Unreal Editor for Fortnite, it seems like Epic is working towards transforming the game from merely a popular battle royale into something closer to Roblox, where people can design their own games for it and monetise their creations.
As part of this transition, the company is also revamping its business model and offering creators a 40% share of the revenue from the entire release.
Epic explained that payouts will be based on ‘what players enjoy in Fortnite’ and account for things like island popularity, engagement, and attracting new players.
These payout funds are separate from Support-A-Creator and are designed to reward island creators who publish content in Fortnite. In fact, Epic confirmed it has removed the Support-A-Creator tool from the game as a result.
