Rockstar Begins Selling Red Dead Online Gold for real Cash
Dec 14, 2018 - 1:35 PM - by Evil Avatar

Red Dead Online’s economy is based on two currencies: cash and gold bars. At launch, it was only possible to get these currencies by playing the game but gold also became available today as a premium currency purchasable with real money. You can just plop down $9.99 for 25 bars instead of earning them in-game, though you may not feel the urge to spend them.

At launch a wide variety of things could be purchased for gold, including outfits, horses, a fishing rod and horse insurance, the last of which allowed your horse to respawn instantly after it was killed rather than make players wait to recover their injured horse at a nearby stable. After some tweaks over the past week, horse insurance and fishing rods are only purchasable with virtual cash earned from gameplay, while a range of other items are still listed with gold prices.

Rockstar is offering gold in a variety of bundles, starting with a one-time offer for 25 gold for $4.99. If you’re some type of wild-person, you could splurge $99.99 for 350 bars.
I know we all saw this coming, but it still hurts. Buying in-game money for real money always feels like they are taking the "game" out of the game.

Metro Exodus goes gold, release date moved up to February 15, 2019
Dec 13, 2018 - 6:00 PM - by Evil Avatar

Metro Exodus has gone Gold and will now release a week early on 15 February 2019

Deep Silver and 4A Games are proud to announce that, after five years of development, Metro Exodus has gone Gold and will release a week earlier than anticipated. The spectacular third entry in the critically acclaimed Metro saga will now release on February 15th 2019, on Xbox One, the all-in one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PlayStation® 4 computer entertainment system and PC.

“Our fans have been waiting patiently for Metro Exodus ever since we announced the title at E3 2017,” said Klemens Kundratitz, CEO at Deep Silver. “We had previously delayed the release date to ensure 4A Games had the time to deliver their ambitious vision for the game, but now we’re delighted to confirm that Metro Exodus has ‘gone gold’ and we are able to bring the release date forward to the 15th February 2019.”

To celebrate this news, Deep Silver are proud to reveal the spectacular Title Sequence for Metro Exodus.

Created by Santa Monica based studio, Elastic, the award winning makers of some of the most iconic title sequences of recent years including Game of Thrones and Westworld, this beautiful introduction to the game is set to an original score by Metro series composer Alexey Omelchuk.

“We were absolutely thrilled to be contacted by the team at Deep Silver and 4A Games to create this Main Title Sequence,” said Andy Hall, Creative Director at Elastic. “It’s the type of project we love. Once we had been immersed in the game, we essentially lived in this frozen and terrifying landscape for many, many weeks...we are delighted with the final film.”

Metro fans can look forward to brand new gameplay reveals in 2019 with the upcoming Story Trailer. Be the first to hear about the latest updates by registering at MetroTheGame.com, following us on Twitter and Instagram @MetroVideoGame or on Facebook at Facebook.com/MetroVideoGame.

Blizzard Begins Shuttering Heroes of the Storm
Dec 13, 2018 - 5:46 PM - by Evil Avatar

The future of Heroes of the Storm, Blizzard Entertainment’s MOBA that brings together heroes from Diablo, StarCraft, Warcraft and Overwatch, is starting to look bleak. Blizzard president J. Allen Breck and chief development officer Ray Gresko said today that the company is shifting development resources away from Heroes of the Storm and putting those developers on other projects.

In a statement released today, Breck and Gresko called the move to scale back development on Heroes of the Storm a “difficult decision” that will affect the future of the game.

“Over the past several years, the work of evaluating our development processes and making hard decisions has led to new games and other products that we’re proud of,” Blizzard said. “We now have more live games and unannounced projects than at any point in the company’s history. We’re also at a point where we need to take some of our talented developers and bring their skills to other projects. As a result, we’ve made the difficult decision to shift some developers from Heroes of the Storm to other teams, and we’re excited to see the passion, knowledge, and experience that they’ll bring to those projects. This isn’t the first time we’ve had to make tough choices like this. Games like Diablo II, World of Warcraft, StarCraft II, Overwatch, and more would not exist had we not made similar decisions in the past.”

Blizzard said it plans to continue supporting Heroes of the Storm with new heroes and themed events, “though the cadence will change.”

“Ultimately, we’re setting up the game for long-term sustainability,” Blizzard said.

The company is also canceling its two esports events for Heroes of the Storm, the pro-focused Heroes Global Championship and the collegiate level Heroes of the Dorm series.

It isn't a big shocker considering how outright toxic their entire ranked community is right now and how little they do to fix it. You can't build a popular product off the back of a few thousand trolls.

Creators of Popular ‘Minecraft’ Server Announce New Game ‘Hytale’
Dec 13, 2018 - 5:22 PM - by Evil Avatar

Hypixel Studios is creating a new game called “Hytale” with some help from “League of Legends” developer Riot Games, it announced in a blog post on Thursday.

“Hytale” is a sandbox RPG with procedurally generated environments and a “Minecraft”-inspired art style. It also boasts a number of interesting features like community servers, minigames, modding tools, and the ability to watch movies together.

“Hytale’s” similarity to “Minecraft” is no accident. Hypixel is the studio behind one of “Minecraft’s” most popular player-made servers, which has reportedly hosted more than 14 million players and won four Guinness World Records, including “most popular independent server for a video game.” The studio said the server’s success allowed it to self-fund development of “Hytale,” but it’s also secured outside funding from investors like Riot Games and former Blizzard Entertainment executive Rob Pardo.

“It’s humbling and exciting to be learning from these veteran game developers and industry experts,” Hypixel said. “Many of us on the team grew up playing their games, and it’s incredible to think that some of their sons and daughters are now playing Hypixel.”

Hypixel said its “Minecraft” server will continue to be actively developed by its own dedicated team. It also said it’s grateful to Mojang and Microsoft, “whose forward-thinking support for content creators from day one has allowed us to produce work that we’re proud of.”

Hypixel plans to launch “Hytale” on PC and Mac, but said it will explore the possibility of releasing on other platforms during development.

World War Z Game ~ First Look at the Playable Classes
Dec 12, 2018 - 5:08 PM - by Evil Avatar

Saber Interactive Unleashes New Class Gammeplay Trailer for World War Z

Saber Interactive has released a new gameplay trailer for World War Z, the upcoming four-player co-op multiplayer game inspired by Paramount Pictures’ blockbuster action film. This newest look at one of gaming’s most anticipated third-person shooters breaks down the game’s main classes, each bringing a unique playstyle and balance of firepower and abilities to the carnage.

Each of World War Z’s six playable classes comes loaded with several unique perks, but here’s a taste of what’s in store for the undead hordes when you play:

• Gunslinger – For those who skip the questions and shoot first, the Gunslinger is loaded with an arsenal of weapon damage and ammo-boosting perks to mow down the dead.

• Hellraiser – Enough explosives can solve any problem! Hellraisers come armed with C4 and other tools for effective crowd control.

• Slasher – For warriors with a sense of elegance, the best way to kill is with your trusty blade. Slashers have perks that increase melee damage and effectiveness while their armed tasers deliver electrifying results.

• Medic – Sometimes the best way to fight the undead is keeping your teammates from becoming one of them. Armed with a Stim Pistol, Medics can heal fellow survivors from a distance and help keep the chaos under control.

• Fixer – When versatility in any situation is the highest priority, the Fixer is there for you, starting out with an explosive ammo case and several teammate ammo-restoring perks.

• Exterminator – Fire is the answer! Armed with Molotov cocktails and increased fire damage, the Exterminator just wants to watch the undead burn.

World War Z takes players on a zombie-packed journey of unique survivor stories all around the world, including New York, Moscow, Jerusalem and more. Powered by Saber’s dynamic Swarm Engine™, the game unleashes hundreds of fast-moving, bloodthirsty zombies at a time on players for a heart-pounding action experience. Work together with your teammates, using deadly weapons, explosives, turrets, traps and barricades to dismember and demolish the undead menace, then level up and customize your heroes to survive even more difficult challenges.

World War Z is expected to launch in 2019 on the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC. For more information visit WWZGame.com, and like on Facebook at Facebook.com/WWZGame, follow on Twitter @WWZTheGame, and Instagram @WWZGame.

Overwatch's Winter Wonderland 2018 Skins Revealed #Overwatch
Dec 12, 2018 - 6:44 AM - by Evil Avatar

The Overwatch Winter Wonderland update is now live, bringing with it some festive decorations and the return of a pair of special wintery Brawls. The showpiece of any Overwatch event is always the new skins, though, and this year Blizzard has packed some especially creative and clever looks for its band of heroes. They can be purchased directly or obtained through a new limited-time loot box--one of which you'll get for free just by logging in.

As usual the most dramatic makeovers are Legendary skins, which change the characters' looks significantly. This year those include Biathlong Widowmaker, Figure Skater Symmetra, Snowboarder Zarya, Snow Fox Lucio, Sugar Plum Fairy Mercy, and Krampus Junkrat. Those are complemented by a handful of Epic skins: Festive Reinhardt, Gift Wrap Bastion, and Winter Ashe. You can check out the full gallery of skins above.

If you happened to miss skins from last year, those are back too, now at reduced prices if you want to purchase them with in-game currency. Four maps have also gotten a snowy look: Blizzard World, King's Row, Black Forest, and Hanamura. Along with the cosmetics, Blizzard brought back the Yeti Hunter and Mei's Snowball Offensive modes.

NieR:Automata Game of the YoRHa Edition Officially Announced
Dec 11, 2018 - 5:40 PM - by Evil Avatar

NieR:Automata Game of the YoRHa Edition Releases 26th February 2019

Alert: Bring glory to mankind in NieR:Automata Game of the YoRHa Edition on the 26th February 2019!

"Square Enix has asked me for a comment to mark the announcement of the NieR:Automata Game of the YoRHA Edition. Now that you mention it, NieR:Automata was first released on the 23rd of February 2017 in Japan, 7th of March 2017 in America and on the 10th of March 2017 in Europe. I have noticed something bizarre and fascinating about these numbers: if you write these dates out in long-form as 20170223, 20170307 and 20170310, then add all three numbers together, you get 60510840. If you take that total, split the digits in two down the middle, making 6051 and 0840, and then subtract the second number from the first… unbelievably you get 5211!! That’s right, a number completely devoid of all meaning! Just like life really, isn’t it? Over and out." - Yoko Taro

NieR:Automata has surpassed 3.5 million shipments and digital sales since its initial release since its release back in 2017 and has received high praise for its compelling storyline, slick combat and memorable soundtrack. Play as androids 2B, 9S and A2 created by mankind to reclaim Earth back from invaders of another world known as machine lifeforms.

Analysis: The NieR:Automata Game of the YoRHa Edition features the full game as well as the 3C3C1D119440927 Expansion DLC, 5 pod designs (Play System Pod Skin, Grimoire Weiss Pod, Retro Grey Pod Skin, Retro Red Pod Skin, Cardboard Pod Skin) and Machine Mask Accessory. Additionally, those who purchase the PlayStation 4 version will receive a Dynamic Theme and 15 PSN avatars and those who purchase on Steam will receive 2 wallpapers.

NieR:Automata Game of the YoRHa Edition will be available digitally on PlayStation 4 and Steam. In addition, a physical version of the game will be available for the PlayStation 4.
Anyone own this? I've heard good things from my co-workers.

John Romero Releasing New Free DOOM Levels
Dec 11, 2018 - 7:09 AM - by Evil Avatar

As revealed on Romero Games Ltd. today to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the original game's release, in Feb. 2019 a new so-called megawad will be released for free called Sigil. Included in the megawad will be nine single-player and nine deathmatch levels to play. The only prerequisite for playing them is you must own a copy of the original Doom.

Gamers will remember that Doom originally consisted of three nine-level episodes, but a fourth episode was added with the launch of The Ultimate Doom in 1995. Sigil is Romero's "spiritual successor to the fourth episode" and carries on from where that left off. With that in mind, waiting for Sigil to launch is the perfect excuse to play through The Ultimate Doom once again to have it fresh in your memory.

As well as offering the megawad for free, Limited Run Games will be offering two limited edition fan boxes. The first is simply called The Standard Edition Box and will cost $39.99. It includes the megawad and extras on a 16GB USB drive which looks like a 3 1/2-inch floppy disk.

There's also a two-disc jewel case which contains the megawad again and a soundtrack by Buckethead. A Sigil sticker and a Romero Games sticker round out the extra content, which will come packaged in a "beautiful demonic standard-sized big box." The art on the box was created by Christopher Lovell.

If you don't mind spending a lot more money, then there's The Beast Box Edition of Sigil which costs $166. As well as everything from The Standard Box, this limited edition includes an 8-by-10-inch art print signed by Christopher Lovell, a Sigil-themed coin, a pewter statue of John Romero's head on a spike, an XL Sigil t-shirt, and the jewel case replaced with a two-disc booklet styled case that adds behind-the-scenes information about the original game as well as Sigil's development, that's as well as the megawad data and soundtrack.

Neat idea, but I think people can do a lot more creative things with Quake than with DOOM.

Monster Hunter World Iceborn Expansion Announced
Dec 10, 2018 - 8:05 AM - by Evil Avatar

Capcom Announces Monster Hunter World: Iceborne Expansion for Acclaimed, Record-Breaking Action RPG Coming Autumn 2019

Hunters around the globe can prance in joy! Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, today announced Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, a massive expansion for the highly-acclaimed more than 10 million unit-selling Monster Hunter: World. The new content will be available for download in autumn 2019 for PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and the Xbox One family of devices, including Xbox One X, with more details on the PC release to be shared in future announcements. The content-rich Monster Hunter World: Iceborne will feature new quest ranks, locales, monsters, moves and gear in addition to a full narrative experience that continues on from the ending of Monster Hunter: World. The Monster Hunter: World base game is required for the expansion and is currently available across consoles and PC. More information on the expansion will be shared next spring. A new teaser trailer offering a sneak peek at the upcoming Monster Hunter World: Iceborne expansion is available to download from the Capcom press site now.

In addition, there is plenty of exciting content for current players of Monster Hunter: World to look forward to soon. Capcom is working on a special collaboration with CD Projekt RED to bring professional monster hunter Geralt from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt into the New World early next year. Unique quests will offer a brand-new type of gameplay that blends the immersive RPG experience of The Witcher 3 with Monster Hunter: World. The voice actors for Geralt have also contributed newly recorded dialogue to further enhance this collaboration.

In the meantime, the Kulve Taroth Siege, a special event quest which allows up to 16 players in groups of four each to team up towards a common goal, will return on December 20. This time however, a tougher Arch Tempered version of this colossal monster which yields more powerful rewards awaits hunters. As another special thank you to hunters around the world, to mark a year since Monster Hunter: World launched we’d like to announce The Appreciation Fest, coming up on the anniversary of the game’s release in January 2019. The Appreciation Fest will include a newly decorated Gathering Hub, special equipment that can be obtained in brand new quests and a slew of new anniversary quests for everyone.

For players who have not yet tried Monster Hunter: World, a free Trial Version of the base game will be available on PlayStation 4 system and Xbox One starting tomorrow, December 11 at 4pm PST through December 17 at 3:59pm PST. Offering a hefty preview, the Trial Version allows new players to experience quests up to the 3-star level and online multiplayer up to Hunter Rank 4. This will provide plenty of opportunity to try out a variety of quests, craft and upgrade equipment, and join in on the game’s trademark cooperative multiplayer action with existing owners of the game. In addition, any saved progress transfers over to the main game, so new players are encouraged to start their hunting journey.

In Monster Hunter: World, players take on larger than life monsters in a variety of vast, living, breathing ecosystems either solo or with up to three other hunters via online co-op, complete with drop-in functionality, a first for the series. The story follows the journey of the elder dragons as they begin their once a decade migration across the sea to a land known as the New World in an event referred to by inhabitants as the Elder Crossing. As part of the Guild’s Research Commission, players must embark on a grand journey to this massive, mysterious land and uncover the secrets behind this phenomenon. The Monster Hunter World: Iceborne expansion will build upon this story when it releases in autumn 2019 for PlayStation 4 system and Xbox One. For all the title updates revealed today, including the Monster Hunter World: Iceborne expansion, Capcom is planning to develop PC versions as well, and will share more on the availability in future announcements.

Psychonauts 2 Official Reveal Trailer

Psychonauts 2 Overview

Psychonauts 2 tells the story of Razputin Aquato, a gifted acrobat with psychic powers, as he fulfills his life-long goal of becoming an international psychic super-spy. In other words, a Psychonaut. Raz joins the Psychonauts at a dangerous time: a mole has infiltrated the organization and is planning to resurrect history’s most cruelly powerful psychic villains. Not knowing who to trust, Raz must dive into the history of the Psychonauts, and that of his own family, to fight the demons of their shared past.

Psychonauts 2 is set to release in 2019, on PCs and consoles.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC Character Joker from Persona 5 Announced
Dec 07, 2018 - 9:33 AM - by Evil Avatar

Joker from Persona 5 Joins Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a Playable DLC Fighter

In a video that aired during The Game Awards, Nintendo revealed that Joker from the critically acclaimed Persona 5 game will be coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for Nintendo Switch as a playable DLC fighter. Joker is included in the first of five planned DLC packs, each containing one playable fighter, one new stage and a handful of music tracks. Each pack can be purchased for $5.99 each, but players can also purchase the Fighter’s Pass for $24.99, giving them access to all five DLC packs as they release.

The Persona games are a spinoff of the popular Shin Megami Tensei franchise, which has a long and storied history in the world of video games – with many of the games appearing on Nintendo systems. Sporting an iconic mask and a variety of weapons, Joker is the main character of Persona 5, a beloved game that won Best Role-Playing Game and was nominated for Game of the Year at last year’s The Game Awards.

The digital version of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate launches in Nintendo eShop at 9 p.m. PT tonight (Dec. 6), with the physical version hitting stores on Dec. 7. In this massive video game crossover event, every fighter in Super Smash Bros. history is back, and they’re joined by newcomers like Daisy from the Super Mario series, Chrom from Fire Emblem, Inkling from Splatoon, Ridley and Dark Samus from Metroid, Ken from Street Fighter, Simon and Richter Belmont from Castlevania, King K. Rool from the Donkey Kong series, Isabelle from Animal Crossing, Incineroar from Pokémon, and, soon, Joker from Persona 5. Anyone who purchases and registers a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate game with My Nintendo by Jan. 31, 2019, will receive Piranha Plant as a free playable fighter. With a smashing amount of content, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the biggest Super Smash Bros. game ever. For more information about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, visit smashbros.com.

“The Game Awards coupled with the launch of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate marks one of the video game industry’s biggest nights, so it’s the ideal place to share news about one of the most anticipated games of the year,” said Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime, who announced the Joker news to The Game Awards audience. “Even as we celebrate the best that our industry has to offer, we’re looking ahead to more excitement and surprises in 2019.”

Devil May Cry 5 Main Trailer, Xbox One Demo Launches December 7th
Dec 07, 2018 - 9:04 AM - by Evil Avatar

Jackpot! Exclusive Xbox One Demo, V character details and further game features revealed for Devil May Cry 5!

At The Game Awards in Los Angeles, Capcom and Microsoft revealed that the first Devil May Cry 5 demo will be available for download exclusively on the Xbox One family of devices including Xbox One X starting tomorrow, December 7th. This smokin’, sexy, stylish demo sees players assume the role of young demon hunter Nero on the streets of Red Grave City as he takes on several demons including the Mighty Goliath in the eternal battle between the forces of good and evil. Players can execute devastating attacks on enemies using Nero’s special Devil Breaker arms designed by his partner in crime and self-professed “weapons artist” Nico. Combined with melee attacks using his ‘Red Queen’ sword and the long range firepower of his ‘Blue Rose’ handgun, the power of Nero’s Devil Breaker arms make the dramatic, adrenaline-fuelled action even more thrilling. This exclusive Xbox One demo gives players their first taste of what to expect when the iconic action series Devil May Cry returns with the launch of the full game on March 8th, 2019.

Viewers of The Game Awards were also treated to the first details of the mysterious character V. V may appear weak next to Nero and Dante, but he has the ability to unleash a unique fighting style that sees him summon three different demons to assist in battle:

• Shadow – a swift, four-legged panther-like creature with savage agility that sees him change his shape into sharp blades and needles for perfectly executed close-range attacks

• Griffon – a bird-like demon possessing aerial combat skills which allows him to carry V across Red Grave City and shoot lightning bolts at enemies from up above

• Nightmare – the most powerful of V’s demons. Nightmare’s gigantic size sees him destroy enemies with just his basic attack, and he can also fire beams of light to destroy any approaching foes.

Utilizing a combination of all three demons’ powers, players can take their enemies down to the brink of death, allowing V to swing into battle and finish them off with a devastating cane attack. A brand new trailer showcasing V’s unique gameplay is available for download from the Capcom press site here.

Capcom is also pleased to confirm the return of fan-favorite Bloody Palace Mode. Coming to the game as a free update shortly after launch in April 2019, this extra quick-elimination mode pits players against hordes of fast-approaching enemies and bosses until they reach the end. Details on the Cameo System in Devil May Cry 5 were also revealed, where players’ worlds collide with other demon hunters. While online, other players can be seen making special guest appearances in the game as they battle other demons around Red Grave City – even joining in the battle in some cases. Players can rate each other’s cameos in-game by rating their gameplay “Stylish!” if they’re impressed by their SSStylish skills.

Devil May Cry 5 is coming to the Xbox One family of devices including Xbox One X, PlayStation 4 and PC on March 8th, 2019.

The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe Announced for Consoles and PC
Dec 07, 2018 - 8:01 AM - by Evil Avatar

The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe Overview

When The Stanley Parable came out, a lot of people asked us for more endings and more content.

We told them it didn’t need more content, that it was fine just the way it was, that it already had the perfect number of endings.

What a sorry sack of lies that was.

We knew it. We knew it were lying and we did it anyway. We’ve carried that shame around with us for years, a burden weighing on every moment of every day.

Enough is enough.

It’s time to fix this, to unburden our shame. Let us give you our shame, for you to carry it around instead. We’re sick of it.

From the liars who brought you the award winning indie game The Stanley Parable comes The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe, an expansion to the original game with more content, more endings, more whimsical adventures of the two best friends Stanley and The Narrator. Coming to PC and consoles in 2019.

Tastefully seasoned with the bitter remorse of having deceived so many loyal fans for so long.

But seriously, this time it’s done. No more.

Launched with high hopes but little equipment and no real plan, players are tasked with exploring, cataloguing alien flora and fauna and determining if the planet is fit for human habitation.

“The core tenets of Typhoon are strong flavours, lots of intertwined systems, a penchant for bad jokes and a deep and abiding love of collaborative play,” said Alex Hutchinson, creative director and co-founder, Typhoon Studios. “Journey to the Savage Planet will encompass all of those things and more.”

“This is a passion project for our team, many of whom came from larger companies including Ubisoft, Eidos and WB Games to embark on this indie game adventure with us,” said Reid Schneider, executive producer and co-founder, Typhoon Studios. “It was a dream come true to reveal our project at The Game Awards,” added Yassine Riahi, technical director and co-founder, Typhoon Studios. “We were thrilled to see the positive reaction from viewers and we’re eager to get Journey to the Savage Planet in your hands next year!”

Pure Evil - The Game Awards
Dec 06, 2018 - 6:19 AM - by Evil Avatar

Tonight is the online awards show The Game Awards. I don’t usually do much promotion for the show since it has been universially terrible since inception. A lot of indie developers no one cares about and awards mostly given out to whatever company is the one bankrolling the show itself.

Not to mention that the show is going to be online only in the middle of the week?

This year there should be a few decent announcements. Far Cry 5 and that Obsidian Fallout Clone as well as something from the new Avengers game a teaser for Star Wars and a new Rage trailer.

It seems like a slightly stronger lineup than previous years, but I still think the awards themselves will mostly go to titles that people didn’t care much about — because those are the companies bankrolling the show. If they changed it to The Shill Awards at least it would have the sting of honesty.

Epic Launches Digital Games Store
Dec 04, 2018 - 6:53 PM - by Evil Avatar

Announcing the Epic Games Store

For the past five years, we've been building tools enabling Epic to bring our games directly to players. We built the Epic Games launcher on PC and Mac featuring Fortnite and Unreal Engine; we built a worldwide digital commerce ecosystem supporting dozens of payment methods; and we gained great economies of scale thanks to Fortnite's growth.

As developers ourselves, we wanted two things: a store with fair economics, and a direct relationship with players. And we've heard that many of you want this too!

Soon we'll launch the Epic Games store, and begin a long journey to advance the cause of all developers. The store will launch with a hand-curated set of games on PC and Mac, then it will open up more broadly to other games and to Android and other open platforms throughout 2019.

The Epic Games store will operate on the following principles:

All Developers Earn 88%

Developers receive 88% of revenue. There are no tiers or thresholds. Epic takes 12%. And if you’re using Unreal Engine, Epic will cover the 5% engine royalty for sales on the Epic Games store, out of Epic’s 12%.

Have a Direct Relationship With Players

People who buy your games automatically subscribe to your newsfeed so you can reach them with game updates and news about upcoming releases. The newsfeed is front-and-center. You’ll also be able to reach your players through email, if they choose to share it.

Connect with Creators

YouTube content creators, Twitch streamers, bloggers, and others are at the leading edge of game discovery. The 10,000-strong Epic Games Support-A-Creator program helps you reach creators, so they can help you reach players. If you opt to participate, creators who refer players to buy your game will receive a share of the revenue that you set (tracked by code or affiliate marketing link). To jumpstart the creator economy, Epic will cover the first 5% of creator revenue-sharing for the first 24 months.

Developers Control Their Game Pages

As a developer, you control your game page and your newsfeed. There will be no store-placed ads or cross-marketing of competing games on your page, and no paid ads in search results.

All Engines Are Welcome

The Epic Games store is open to games built with any engine, and the first releases span Unreal, Unity and internal engines.

When You Succeed, We Succeed

We’ve built this store and its economic model so that Epic’s interests are aligned with your interests. Because of the high volume of Fortnite transactions, we can process store payments, serve bandwidth, and support customers very efficiently. From Epic’s 12% store fee, we’ll have a profitable business we’ll grow and reinvest in for years to come!

More details on upcoming game releases will be revealed at The Game Awards this Thursday, December 6th.

While I admire the idea of someone trying to compete with Steam, I think most people just don't want to install another digital platform on top of Steam/Origin/UPlay/Battlet.net.
