Fortnite‘s Unreal Engine essentially promises to be a souped-up version of Roblox Coproration’s Roblox Study.

“Unreal Editor for Fortnite (UEFN) is a new PC application for designing, developing and publishing games and experiences directly in Fortnite“, Epic Games wrote in add-on description page. “With many of Unreal Engine 5’s powerful tools and workflows at your fingertips, including importing custom assets, modeling, materials and VFX, Sequencer and Control Rig, you get a whole new world of possibilities for producing and publishing games and experiences for Fortnite which can be enjoyed by millions of players.”

UEFN works hand in hand with Fortnite‘s in-game Creator mode that allows players on consoles and PC to craft their and “test islands in real time.” One aspect of UEFN that has fans geeked out is that it has its custom asset import feature that has the potential to allow players to import characters into Fortnite which Epic Games has not included in its huge archive of pop culture skins.

One more addition to Fortnite is Verse, a new language program that Epic claims will offer “powerful customization options” such as “manipulation or chaining of entities and the ability to easily create new game logic.”

Unreal Editor provides another powerful addition to Fortnite. Last week, Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 fully cemented the Battle Royale game as a motion shooter with its Cyberpunk 2077-esque car chases with Akira bike slides (obviously) and its Jet Set radio-style rail grinding. Chapter 4 Season 2 also added Attack on Titan protagonist-turned-antagonist Eren Jaeger skin and his 3D maneuver gear mobility into Fortnite as well. Fortnite has come a long way from being another early access base building zombie smashing game of 2017.

Fortnite‘s Unreal Editor is scheduled for release on March 22.
