Fortnite Store Revamp
The information surrounding the store revamp was revealed by @FireMonkey.
He's recently made a video on the store revamp using @HYPEX, @Lucas7Yoshi and his own information collectively.
The dataminers discovered a new shop tab in the game files labelled 'Cataba'.
The tab has been receiving a lot of updates recently suggesting it is being developed currently.
@FireMonkey has suggested the updates cryptic name is Epic trying to make it more difficult for leakers to figure out future updates.
A 'Customise Your Hero' tab has also been found in the code.
The leakers have predicted this is a tab where players will be able to directly customise their own cosmetics.
Overall, this update appears to be seeking to create a more diverse and expanded shop.
When you're spending your hard-earned money on the game, more options and features in the store is always positive.
In terms of a release date, there is no indication of when this will be.
Fingers crossed it's in the near future and we can get into the revamped shop as soon as possible.
