Epic is starting an experiment where developers can self-publish their games on the Epic Games Store. It is a closed beta. Developers must meet a number of requirements; Pornography and games that can only be played in VR are not allowed.
Self-publishing allows game developers to publish games on the Epic Store themselves. They will no longer be directed by Epic employees in creating product and achievement pages, setting prices, and uploading builds. epic says in the ad She hopes the store will grow faster. It is currently a closed beta for developers can subscribe to.
There are many qualifications that games and their developers must meet. For example, only virtual reality games are allowed. If a game includes multiplayer options, it should also be compatible with other PC stores. Developers can use any cross-play technology they want for this.
Epic also warns that the games must work, and that they must do what is stated in the accompanying product description. Games that contain pornography can be removed, just as if they contain “illegal content”, are in violation of copyright, or the game contains discriminatory content.
