Unreal Editor for Fortnite is about to change everything. Remember, Fortnite launched as a free-to-play game, but it's evolving this year into one of the industry's most interesting game development platforms. The game that has millions of kids obsessing over TikTok dances could become a gateway to development and supercharge a new creator economy.

This is clearly on the minds of the team at KitBash3D, the professional studio that supplies 3D asset packs that bridge the gap between Hollywood VFX studios, Triple-A game developers and hobbyists. The team's premium assets have been used in movies such as Dr. Strange as well as in video games that include The Last of Us Part II. Now, as announced at GDC earlier this year, those same assets and more are being made available for the new Unreal Editor for Fortnite (UEFN).
