In a way, it is also making money for developers. That's obviously good news for developer Epic Games, whose engine not only powers that game, but also numerous other incredibly big and popular games, like PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.
This creator-friendly move was also made possible by the success of the Unreal Engine Marketplace, which has experienced an increase of 30% in active sellers in the first half of 2018.
Epic Games is able to do this based on its enormous increase in business.
Unreal Engine Marketplace asset creators now take 88% of revenue, while Epic Games gets 12%.
The 88/12 spit applies to all Unreal Engine Marketplace items.
That's not all, even though the new deal goes into effect today, it actually went into effect about four years ago. Do you use the Unreal Engine Marketplace? "Now all involved artists, modelers, animators, programmers and other Unreal developers will be a bit happier, find it easier to live and invest more in their own dream projects and make more high-quality assets and plugins for others".
"I remember the moment when Unreal Engine became free", he said.
Donald Trump: European Union is a foe on trade
Putin is regarded as creating a culture of violence and impunity that has resulted in the killing of some Russian journalists. They also expect Trump to bring up Russia's incursion into Ukraine and the allegations of Russian meddling in the election.
Trump Says He Hadn’t Thought of Asking Putin to Extradite Hackers
Trump told reporters on Friday that he had given May advice about how to deal with the European Union that she found too "brutal". Trump also named Russian Federation and China as foes of the U.S. "It means that they are competitive", Trump said.
France and Croatia at full strength for World Cup final
The French head of state joined his country's victorious players in the locker room after they beat Croatia 4-2. They then struck twice midway through the second half to put the game beyond the Croats.
This change is not temporary, which is great news for future developers. And this moment is comparable and somewhat surpasses it.
However, that is not the only surprise Epic has in store for the Marketplace community.
"Epic has proven time and time again that they do what they can to do right by the sellers on the platform", said Michael Allar, director of Gamemakin LLC.
The UE marketplace has also grown tremendously at this point, with the userbase reaching 6.3 million users on UE4 in July 2018.
The current community is small in comparison to other online marketplaces like Steam, Google Play and the iOS Store, as it offers 5,000 products to about 1,500 creators.
There's no word on how the money will be given back to developers, but there have been 8 million downloads from the marketplace since its inception, so it certainly seems like a lot of checks are about to be cut. It's nice to see the company share the wealth like this and it can only result in more asset developers coming onboard.
