Marketplace Content Release

By Jon Jones

Happy birthday to the Marketplace! One year ago this week the Marketplace launched, and in that time we've grown by leaps and bounds. After starting with only a handful of items, as of today we now have more than 400 items for sale, and are on track to hit 500 in October. We have hundreds of content creators publishing amazing content, our community is growing and thriving, the quality standards and volume of submissions have been steadily rising, we've begun to offer code plugins on the Marketplace (with many more on the way), and we're beginning to see some of our content creators become successful enough to start selling content on the Marketplace full-time. 

Last week we also launched the Publishing Portal, the fastest and easiest way to submit content to the Marketplace! We've listened to the community's requests over the last year for an easier way to manage their seller profile, banking and tax information, submissions, and more, and it's finally been released. The signup process now takes mere minutes.

The Publishing Portal is a huge win for both Epic and content creators. The path to sign up and start selling amazing Marketplace content has never been shorter or easier, and it’s essentially fulfilling the bulk of the Marketplace community’s wishlist in one fell swoop, demonstrating Epic’s ongoing commitment to and respect for its community. Content creators can now sign up to begin selling Marketplace content in mere minutes. And when it comes to submitting content, content creators now have direct access to submit content into our catalog for review and publishing. In the near future we'll also be opening up sales data to each content creator so you can see in real time how well your content is performing. This is the fastest and easiest it's ever been to sign up to start submitting content to sell on the Marketplace, so sign up today!

And now it's time for the monthly digest of all the content release in the past month! It's been a few weeks since the last Marketplace blog post since we've switched to a monthly digest format, and boy, have we got a ton of content for you. This month we released 63 new packs to the Marketplace, more than doubling our previous rate of releases! The Marketplace team has been hard at work publishing more content faster than before, and we're getting better at it every day. Without further ado, here's a full list of all our great new releases. Enjoy!

 

Environments

We have three great modular, highly customizable environments for you this month! Quantum Theory is back with an extremely clever method for building urban environments, PolyPixel has a beautiful outdoor environment, and also the new installment in MaxStudiosDe's incredibly customizable Automatic Landscape series.
