Fortnite will get an exciting new Creative Mode in season 7

  • Epic Games to undercut Valve with own PC games store

Also much like Minecraft, the hub as you start up Fortnite Creative will feature builds created by developer Epic and particular highlights from the community.

As you can see epic makes it immediately more profitable for all with an 88:12 split in favour of the game's makers.

Epic Games have at long last revealed when the Fortnite Season 7 server downtime will occur on Thursday, December 6th.

Epic also won't charge the typical Unreal Engine royalty of 5%, or the Unity up-front licensing fees. Developers can directly reach out to players, players can support content creators, and developers can reward content creators for promoting their games to players.


In another grassroots-building move, developers will be able to allow referral purchases of their games through the Epic Store. However, you won't be excluded if you use Unreal 4. The company will cover the first 5% paid out through the revenue-sharing program per game for the first two years. In both cases, Epic emphasized that the change was the result of the high volume of transactions that have resulted from the overwhelming success of Fortnite. The announcement seemed to be aimed at bigger publisher seeking to release their games exclusively on their own launchers, like Activision-Blizzard and Bethesda.

The aim of the tweaks to the Steam commission structure is to provide a bigger incentive for the big games companies to stick with the platform, rather than set-up their own. For this objective these partners can earn referral fees, and Epic will pay the first 5 per cent in fees during the store's first two years. It will mostly focus on the technical side of things and general quality. Ofcourse as we know, it is probably just an inaugural offer in order to lure more games and developers onto their platform. Will you be picking up games from the Epic Games Store from now on?

That said, there are already cautionary tales about the importance of abandoning Steam's tools when you don't exactly have a great alternative in your own launcher - or at least that's what I think Fallout 76 is.
