Epic Games announces its dev-friendly Steam competitor

Epic Games to undercut Valve with own PC games store

Fortnite Creative will let you "build on your own private island and also design games with friends", according to a video released by developer Epic Games on Wednesday.

The 30 per cent commission figure has been established for more than ten years, with the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store on mobile platforms helping to get developers used to the commission fee in return for convenience, lower costs and reduced risk.

The first games available on the store have been curated by Epic, though it's being close-mouthed about what the games are. The Epic Games Store will have a universal revenue split of 88% for all developers with "no tiers or thresholds". "3 days to Season 7", the official Fortnite Twitter account tweeted.

Now the company seems to bring the first ever Hole on the screen smartphone, very similar to Samsung's Infinity O design . As we can clearly see, this phone ditches the notch, replacing it with a display cutout for the front-facing camera .


Creative mode builds on the foundations laid by Fortnite's Playground mode, where building and experimenting is the name of the game, and resources are plentiful.

The developers will be continuing their Season 7 teaser countdown with their third poster reveal, which we suspect will be coming at roughly 3-4pm GMT today. You'll also be able to reach your players through email, if they choose to share it.

It seems very unlikely that Creative will ever make its way to the mobile version of Fortnite due to memory and CPU requirements, but it'll be interesting to see if the Featured custom maps will be playable on non-PC platforms.
