Fortnite Creative Coming In Season 7

Fortnite Creative Coming In Season 7

When it comes to buying videogames online Valve's Steam platform has the market pretty sown up.

Since the launch of Fortnite Battle Royale in September 2017, developer Epic Games has regularly updated the game, adding new modes and scenic features for every three-month "season". Epic plans to attract developers and publishers by letting them keep more revenues, likely thanks to Fortnite's billions: the Epic Games Store only keeps 12% of earnings versus Steam's 30%, meaning anyone who sells games on the platform keeps 88% of earnings. For that objective, the first move is a flat 12% royalty for Epic on games sold through its storefront, a percentage that seriously undercuts Steam's usual 30% take.

In an attempt to make its store a more attractive proposition for developers and content creators, Epic will also implement a "Support-A-Creator program" that aims to bring influencers and marketers together. It's a major step away from Fortnite just being that game where a hundred idiots shoot each other until there's only one standing, and could help cement the game's top dog position for years to come. Developers using the Unreal Engine will save another 5% as the 12% include the engine royalty already.

'As a developer ourselves, we've always wanted access to a store with fair revenue-sharing that gives us direct access to our customers, ' commented Tim Sweeney, founder and CEO of Epic Games, during a chinwag with Variety.

Steam took off in 2006 when it was opened up to non-Valve games, a process accelerated with its Greenlight initiative in 2012 to encourage independent developers to publish their games on Steam. Players can host limited time servers or even leave them up for others to join. The company notes that it won't allow paid ads in search results, either.

Some Fortnite Twitter users have also noticed that on the very right-hand side of the image you can just about see a small part of the games "Onesie" skin which was revealed in the Season 6 files some weeks ago before it was mysteriously removed.

A YouTuber by the name of Lachlan was initially invited to Epic Games' HQ to record some new footage for some new features coming to the game.
