Epic Games wants the game library of its store to grow faster. That’s why the company announced a closed beta of its new self-publishing tools today. They should help developers operate their titles with less dependence on the EGS team.
Epic Games Store publishing tools are a suite within the Developer Portal, which allows developers to independently operate and manage their games on the store. It allows setting up product pages, achievements, pricing, builds, updates, and offers.
“To date, we’ve only had a manual process that relied on the Epic internal team for each step in publishing the more than 650 games and apps currently available,” the announcement reads. “With these new self-publishing tools, the games and app library of the Epic Games Store will grow faster than ever before.”
The only strict requirement for publication, besides avoiding prohibited content, is that multiplayer titles should support crossplay on all PC stores.
Every developer can sign up for the beta here.
