  • Epic’s chart detailing its revenue split for sales on its new Epic Games online store

The move was later incorporated into Fortnite in the form of the Swipe It emote, which was offered as the reward for the 63rd tier of the Season 5 Battle Pass.

Developers get control of their games pages and newsfeed and interestingly Epic says that there will be "no store-placed ads or cross-marketing of competing games on your page, and no paid ads in search results". After being leaked online by a YouTuber, Epic Games has officially unveiled Fortnite Creative, a sandbox mode allowing players to build their own maps and match types.

For the first week, only those players who purchase a Season Seven Battlepass will have access to the new mode; from 13 December, it will be free for all.

Creative will join the massively popular PvP Battle Royale mode (which is now the only mode available on mobile) and the PvE Save the World campaign.

Epic Games has announced its intention to take on the mighty Valve in the digital distribution market, launching the Epic Games Store and offering developers an 88 percent revenue share - considerably higher than the competition. Are you looking forward to Season 7? Like Battle Royale and Save the World, we're committed to making this bigger and better over time.

They'll be able to design games and set them up for playing with friends on their own private island. It's kind of like Minecraft or Super Mario Maker, but with Fortnite.

Fans are on the lookout for the new Fortnite Season 7 trailer, which could be shared any day now. People have used Mojang's building game to make functioning calculators, recreate other games, and do other things nobody would've expected from a game about harvesting materials to create basic structures.

It looks very much like Halo's Forge mode, with players able to fly freely and construct as much as they want, so long as they stay within a memory limit assigned to the server.

The company has said that they will reveal more details on December 6th, at The Game Awards in Los Angeles.
