Fortnite adding Unreal Engine 5 Editor later this year
News from Epic Games - the company will be adding Unreal Engine 5 Editor to Fortnite later this year. Could this be the start of something BIG in gaming?
The gaming industry is about to get a lot more interesting. Epic Games, the company behind Fortnite, has announced that they will be adding Unreal Engine 5 Editor later this year. This will allow creators to monetize their content in a variety of ways, including through the use of NFTs (non-fungible tokens). This could be the start of mainstream gaming incorporating blockchain technology and decentralized applications!
Let's explore what this means and potentially what doors this may open for the future of gaming.
Monetizing Content Within Fortnite
The ability to monetize content is a massive deal for creators. There hasn't been a way for them to profit from their creations in Fortnite directly. However, with the addition of Unreal Engine Editor, they will now be able to do just that. There are a few different ways this can be done, but the most likely scenario is that creators will be able to sell their creations
This is a huge step forward for the gaming industry as a whole, and could potentially pave the way for other games to follow suit. Making this an exciting development within the world of gaming and content creation.
NFTs in Gaming
Firstly, although by now we are sure you already know, what's an NFT?
NFTs (non-fungible tokens) are digital assets that are unique and cannot be replicated. This makes them perfect for use in the gaming industry, as each NFT could represent a different in-game item.
For example, in Fortnite, an NFT could represent a rare skin that can be used by your character. These skins could be sold by creators for a set price, and then resold by players on secondary markets.
The possibilities are endless when it comes to NFTs in gaming, and we are very excited to see how these epic developments advance over the coming months.
This is just the start gamers!
Another exciting development that is closely related to NFTs is blockchain gaming. Blockchain games are games that use blockchain technology to create unique game items that can be bought, sold, or traded on a decentralized marketplace.
One of the most popular blockchain games right now is CryptoKitties, which allows players to breed, trade, and collect digital cats.
Another popular blockchain game is Decentraland, which is a virtual world where players can buy, sell, or trade virtual land and property.
At GMR we are working behind the scenes on developing our very own game - Battle Leet. Which many of you will have heard about thanks to the recent release of our epic logo in the form of an NFT ticket drop!!
