Fortnite Creative Mode Season 7 to add new Minecraft-inspired mode for Playground fans

Fortnite Creative Mode Season 7 to add new Minecraft-inspired mode for Playground fans

Sweeney was discussing Tuesday's announcement of the Epic Games Store, when he was asked what impact development of the store and the continued growth and support of "Fortnite" is having on older projects, like "Unreal Tournament". This arrangement should bring a lot of game developers to the Epic Games Store because a lot of games are made using Unreal Engine nowadays.

However, there doesn't appear to be any plans for a mashup coming anytime soon as Epic Games prepares Fortnite for the release of Season 7. Today, Epic announced that it's launching a game store of its own, complete with an aggressive revenue sharing model that seems to be entirely focused on disrupting digital distribution. Games created on all engines are welcome in the store.

As far as game output goes, Epic Games is all about Fortnite Battle Royale. What's more, if you're using Unreal Engine, then the 5% engine royalty will be taken out of Epic's 12% profit, not your 88%. Those buying games in the Store automatically get subscribed to the developer's news feed, and there will be no store ads or cross-marketing of other games on a particular title's page. For the first 24 months, Epic Games will cover the first 5% of the Support-A-Creator program to get it off the ground.

In another grassroots-building move, developers will be able to allow referral purchases of their games through the Epic Store.
