Fortnite dataminer found information about the upcoming Unreal Editor in the game
A well-known dataminer under the nickname GMatrixGames recently shared a series of images, showing for the first time what the Unreal Editor in Fortnite has in store for creators. Epic Games planned to release it back in December, but postponed the release to January due to unknown problems.
Here's What We Know
The release date is still unknown, but the functionality of the tool is more or less clear. It is known that there will be a news feed (apparently to notify players about the release of some creations from other players), tutorials and, of course, a library of content from SketchFab, which Epic Games acquired last July.
"Islands with the 'Island Download Icon' will need to be downloaded and converted to an Unreal Editor for Fortnite island."

It looks like the content library will include everything from vehicles to animals and materials. There will also be many ready-made templates.
