To celebrate one year of Unreal Editor for Fortnite, the iconic game-changing creative portal, Epic Games has once again picked up the bar that it previously set and smashed it into the stratosphere.

After recently announcing a mega collaboration with Disney earlier this year, Epic has now updated us on what the future holds for Fortnite, and 2024 is shaping up to be even better than years gone by.

Revealed during the recent State of Unreal showcase on March 20, which announced new games being made on the Unreal Engine such as a new Marvel 1943: Rise of Hydra, Fortnite is rolling out a first-person mode, in-game Fall Guys, and new colossal updates to Rocket Racing and LEGO.

Fortnite first-person is finally happening

Insert your Michael Scott "Oh my God, okay, it's happening, stay calm" gif here. Because first-person Fortnite isn't something that we ever thought would finally arrive, despite having become available in some UEFN builds.

But Epic is legitimising this ostracised mode and adding it properly into the core experience.

"Later this year, we are happy to finally announce that we will be releasing the highly-requested first-person camera," said Saxs Persson, Executive Vice President of the Fortnite Ecosystem, Epic Games.

"It took a while, we know," he joked.

Fortnite adds in-game Fall Guys experience, Rocket Racing Custom Maps, and more LEGO!

If first-person Fortnite wasn't the sought-after feature that scratches your itch though, there's a wealth of new content coming to Fortnite too, starting with Fall Guys.

After embedding its other titles into Fortnite, like Rocket League, Epic Games is adding Fall Guys assets to UEFN, to allow players to make their own maps and modes for the beans to manoeuvre.

Rocket Racing is also getting a custom map creator, which is a gripe within the Rocket League community who are imploring that the title receives similar treatment and move to UE5.

As for LEGO, three new maps are being added and more customisation features will be deployed throughout the remainder of 2024.

Oh, and Fortnite is finally coming back to iOS this year, with a NINJAGO collaboration not far behind.
