Common UI provides a toolbox for creating rich, multi-layered user interfaces with cross-platform support, such as those found in Fortnite. Its tools include:

  • A new library of Common UI Widgets that provide commonly used game functionality.

  • New style data assets that separate styling information from UI elements, making it easier to share styling among multiple UIs.

  • A new Input Routing system that can give UI widgets selective interactivity, making it easier to manage focus in multi-layered UIs.

  • Support for console-specific UI elements, such as button icons for a specific controller.

  • Cardinal navigation management for gamepads.

Refer to the pages below for more information about Common UI's intended use cases and how to get started using these tools.
