    Apple Bans Fortnite from App Store for Five Years

    Tim Sweeney is throwing himself a little pity party.

Specifically, Apple has refused the request to reinstate Epic's developer account that was terminated back in August 2020 right as the legal fight was heating up.

    Epic is Suing Apple After Fortnite was Kicked from the App Store

    Yo, where we dropping... a lawsuit?

    Apple has removed Epic Games' Fortnite from the App Store after the studio implemented its own in-app payment system. This payment system bypasses Apple's payment system and thus avoids Apple 30% tax on purchases made.

    This is, as they say in the biz, a big no-no.

    Apple immediately responded by kicking Fortnite off of the App Store. Epic Games also implemented the same payment bypassing option into the Android version of...

    Unreal Engine 5 Announced for Next-gen Platforms

    Don't expect any games any time soon though.

    "Nanite" and "Lumen" are going to be the new buzzwords for the next few years. Those two terms were the highlight of today's reveal for the Unreal Engine 5. The engine, still very early in development at Epic, won't be released to the public until late 2021. An early preview will be made available to some in early 2021. This engine is being built to support current-generation consoles, next-generation consoles, PC, Mac,...

    Stalker 2 Ditches the X-Ray Engine

    RIP X-Ray

    There was a small update on the development of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 made today via the game's official Twitter account. Instead of utilizing the X-Ray Engine, or at least a highly updated version of it, they will instead be going with Unreal Engine.

    The X-Ray Engine was the 3D game engine created by GSC Game World. The engine was used to power the first three S.T.A.L.K.E.R. titles: Shadow of Chernobyl, Clear Sky, and Call of Pripyat.

  • Fortnite Chapter 2 Offers Big Changes for Battle Royale and Very Little for Save the World

    Black hole sun, won't you come...

    Thousands of people watched a mysterious black hole where Fortnite once stood. Literally. It was the top watched "game" on Twitch the past few days and it was literally nothing but a glorified screensaver. You could not play Fortnite at all. There was no Battle Royale. There was no Save the World. There was nothing. There were some random numbers at times, but who really cares.

    All of that nothingness has led to today's launch...

    Epic Responds to Complaints About Fortnite Cross-Platform Play

    Developer will continue with their plans despite fan complaints.

    Cross-platform play seems to be all the rage these days and it's only going to keep gaining support as time goes on. However, it seems as though some fans of the still popular battle royale game, Fortnite, aren't too keen on the idea.

    A recent change to the game introduced skill-based matchmaking. This is a system that tries to put players of similar skill together in the same match. Players noticed that...

    Epic Nerfs Giant Mechs in Fortnite

    Taking a nerf bat to the mech that everyone hates.

    The new, giant mechs in the latest Fortnite season aren't winning too many fans over. In fact, some people outright despise the mech and other changes that came about in Season 10. Epic hasn't backed down from keeping them in the game (for now), but they did make some nerfs to the way that mech, called B.R.U.T.E., operates. Perhaps Respawn had the right idea when they decided not to include the Titans in Apex Legends.

    Then quickly announces this will happen again.

    If you've been following the Shenmue 3 development saga for any length of time, you are probably well aware of a few things.

  • Epic Games Launcher Allegedly Scrapes Local Steam Data Prior to Granting Consent, Epic Responds

    Earlier today, Reddit user PhoenixPoint and ResetEra member Madjoki found out that the Epic Games Launcher may be collecting your Steam history at startup. As part of their investigation, they found that at startup, the Epic Games Launcher searches your local computer for a Steam install. If it finds that Steam is installed, it then apparently proceeds to pull a list of files typically stored in your Steam Cloud. This data includes game saves for all users that have logged in to Steam on your computer....

    Unity Changes Terms Once More, Commits to 'Being an Open Platform'

    Unity has had a real interesting seven days. Last week, SpatialOS from developer Improbable was apparently barred from being used within Unity development. SpatialOS is a robust tool that many Unity developers use to add multiplayer to their games. For a time, Unity's new Terms, which went live in early December but were only clarified to Improbable last week, actually affected games that were already released. This led to some quick back and forths between Improbable and Unity through their...

    Epic and Improbable Create $25 Million Fund to Move Devs Away from Unity

    It's been a real rollercoaster of a day for those using the Unity game engine. First, Unity cut off all future support for the online multiplayer platform called SpatialOS. Unity updated their terms of service back on December 4, 2018, and only clarified these changes to the SpatialOS development team at Improbable on January 10, 2019. These changes specifically prevent services like SpatialOS from working with Unity.

    SpatialOS is a widely used development toolkit allowed developers...
