The Epic Games Store is banning manual content moderation

The Epic Games Store is banning manual content moderation – any publisher and developer can now place their game on the store

Management of the digital store Epic Games Store announced about launching tools (previously in closed beta testing) for self-publishing games. Since its inception, the service has been subject to manual content moderation.

As determined by Epic Games, these tools will enable developers and publishers to publish games, build their presence directly on the store, and reach the 68 million active users of the Epic Games Store.

For its part, EGS promises a 12% commission, the ability to use its own payment system for in-game purchases, means to get the IARC rating for free, and an affiliate support program for authors.

To publish Your game on the Epic Games Store, you need it to meet the requirements of the service:

  • had cross-platform support (in the case of multiplayer games) in all digital stores (Steam, GOG, EGS, Microsoft Store, etc.);
  • supported Epic Games Store achievements;
  • had age ratings for regional distribution;
  • did not contain prohibited content (unfriendly, discriminatory, illegal, copyright infringing, pornography);
  • downloaded, installed, run, run and checked against its description on the EGS page.

Throughout 2022, more than 620 new games came to the Epic Games Store for a total of more than 1500. This number is expected to increase sharply as self-hosted tools open up.
