How Fortnite is changing AEC
Fortnite is the world’s most popular video game from Epic Games. The same platform, Unreal Engine, is also the most popular real-time tool in AEC. This presentation will review how the technology driving Fortnite’s success is also fueling the adoption of Unreal Engine for purposes that go beyond just visualisation of high fidelity images.
