  • 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.

    Madjoki also found that it pulls a list of your Steam friends and their name history....

    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 respective sites. It all seemed to quiet down when Improbable and Epic Games formed a joint $25...

    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 to more easily integrate online multiplayer experiences into their Unity developed games. In...

    Epic Games Reportedly Launching Mobile App Store Next


    First, Epic came for Steam on the PC front. They threw piles of cash at studios to put their games on the Epic Games Store for a period of exclusivity that lasts at least one year or more. Now, Epic may be going after that sweet, sweet mobile industry by launching their own mobile games store.

    This is according to a new report from MarketWatch.



    MarketWatch goes on to say that Epic will once again allow devs to keep 88% of earned revenues. This is in comparison to the 70% that Apple and Google allow for.

    Will this store be curated? Will...

    Discord Store Moves to Give Developers 90% of Sales Revenue

    In the new war on crappy revenue splits, Discord announced today that they are going to allow all developers to self-publish their games. Not only that, but they're going to give developers a 90% revenue share for games sold through the Discord Store. That leaves just the remaining 10% for Discord to cover operating costs.

    But wait, it gets even better.

    Discord says that they may even end up lowering that 10% to a smaller amount by finding ways to optimize their technology and making things more efficient.
    Earlier this year though, we noticed a change happening in the game industry. We talked to a lot of developers, and many of them feel

    Epic Confirms Unreal Tournament Development is Dead

    In a reveal that should surprise nobody, Epic Games confirmed that they have halted development on Unreal Tournament. In 2014, a new Unreal Tournament was announced. Development was supposed to be this huge collaborative effort between a small team at Epic, Unreal Engine 4 devs, and the public.

    We really haven't heard much about the game for literally years now. It's out there. It's playable. There isn't much content, but it existed in a state that you could, realistically, play some matches in it. It's also like, super dead. Epic's CEO Tim Sweeney told PCGamer as such.

  • Fortnite's Fortnitemares 2018 Event Begins After Buggy Start

    Fortnite's Fortnitemares 2018 Event Begins After Buggy Start

    Earlier today, the Fortnitemares event for Fortnite officially kicked off. It then immediately got pulled for a little while. Apparently, today's update had some issues with a degradation in performance, disconnects, the inability to complete certain challenges, and server hitches.

    Big yikes.

    Fortunately, Epic Games worked quickly to iron out these issues and re-released the Fortnitemares event to the masses. Fortnitemares was released alongside the Fortnite 6.20 update, which brings about the usual slew of improvements, changes, and new content. Fortunately, the Fortnitemares event includes new content for both the Battle Royale mode and the Save the World campaign. Just a reminder here that free-to-pla...

    Fortnite: Save the World Free Release Delayed

    This probably won't come as a shock to some of you and will probably make others go "isn't Fortnite just a battle royale game?", but the promised free release of the Save the World campaign for Fortnite has been delayed. First of all, no, Fortnite isn't just the battle royale game. In fact, it was a cooperative game focused on building and survival against zombies long before battle royale came about. But then battle royale happened and it was made clear that the Save the World campaign took a backseat, perhaps understandably so. Save the World has been accessible only to those that payed to get into the game early but it was forever promised by Epic tha...

    Fortnite Android Beta Opens to More Devices

    Epic Games has opened up the Fortnite Android beta to more devices today. You're still going to need a fairly new device in order run the game at a respectable framerate, but if you meet the following criteria, you can give it a whirl for yourself.
    OS:RAM:GPU: Adreno 530 or higher, Mali-G71 MP20, Mali-G72 MP12 or higher

    The Fortnite Android FAQ has been updated to include a more specific list of devices that the game is known to run on adequately. If your device isn't specifically mentioned but it does meet or exceed the requirements listed above, it should still run but it isn't guaranteed.

    Epic Games Buys Easy Anti-Cheat Makers

    Epic Games, the studio behind a little game called Fortnite, just announced that they have bought the company, Kamu, behind the anti-cheat software that is appropriately called Easy Anti-Cheat.

    Fret not, however, because developer Kamu says that they will continue to work with other developers and other game engines for their anti-cheat solutions. Epic's Tim Sweeney also offered up his own thoughts on this new acquisition.

    Pets Added in Fortnite Season 6

    The sixth season of Fortnite is upon us. And while Epic Games is dubbing it the "Darkness Rises" season, I'm calling it the season where you can get pets.

    Pets in Fortnite. Hell to the yes!

    I'm talking about adorable dogs. I'm talking about dragons. I'm talking about some chameleon looking things. Can you pet them? I don't know, but I sure as hell hope so!

    Oh and there are some other changes like to the map and something about a giant purple cube and Shadow Stones? There's probably some more stuff but none of them involve pets. Of course, all of this coincides with the latest release of the Battle Pass and other tasty updates in the V6.00 update.

    Epic Gives Free Fortnite Emote For Enabling Two-Factor Authentication

    If you have an Epic Games account to play Fortnite, chances are you were hit with an email at some point saying that someone tried to get into your account. Hell, I've been there and I have played the game maybe once in a blue moon. Even if you haven't been there, the theft of Fortnite accounts is huge. It's absolutely massive. People steal accounts and then sell them via third-party sites. And depending on how much has been unlocked on the account, or even if the stats are good, they can be sold for a pretty penny in many cases. It's a hassle both for the user and Epic support any time this happens, so why not just stop i...

    Former Epic Devs Announce Music Filled Dungeon Crawler: Soundfall

    Combining music, rhythm-based gameplay, and dungeon crawling isn't exactly a new idea, but it is one that hasn't been explored all that much. Which is why some folks may want to start taking a look at the newly announced Soundfall from some former Epic developers that make up Drastic Games.

    As you may have already guessed, Soundfall looks to combine rhythmic style gameplay with the dungeon crawling stable of action and adventure. They also decided to throw in a dash of twin-stick shooting for good measure, because why the hell not.
    Soundfall follows the journey of Melody, a young audiophile who finds herself transported to the world of Symphonia. In search
