Hello, world! The Marketplace team has two exciting announcements this week that'll make both content creators and developers happy. First, we're announcing our brand-new Publishing Portal! We've listened to the community's requests for an easier way to manage their seller profile, banking and tax information, submissions, and more, and it's finally ready to unveil to the world.

The second announcement is that we're doing five days of Marketplace flash sales! Starting on Monday, August 31 at 10am EST we'll be putting three new great Marketplace items on a deeply discounted sale, and we're featuring a new category and new items every day. Be sure to tune in at 10am EST Monday through Friday and get them while they're hot. We specially selected each of these items so that many of them work well when used together to save you even more development time on your projects. Read on below to see what's going up for sale.
We're starting off the five-day flash sale with Blueprints. Ready to kick off a new project? Check out our Turn-Based Strategy Grids, Realistic Blueprint Weapons, and Quest and Dialogue System. These Blueprints are detailed, highly functional, and well-documented. Check out the videos and see what they can do!
Establish a base set of audio across your whole project, add immersive environmental audio to your outdoor areas and bring your modern weapons to life. Audio is a crucial component in any project, and adds the important elements of immersion and feedback. These three packs were selected specifically to make your project feel real and give the player weight and impact.
Thursday: Characters & Animation
Create a wide variety of unique enemies for your project by combining these three packs to generate infinite possibilities: Agents Characters Pack, Movement Animset Pro and Mobility MoCap Pack. Take a look at the agent's customization options, and watch the videos of these terrific motion captured animation sets.
Create the Medieval ambiance for your interior fantasy environments, build out your sci-fi spaceships and make a stunning arid desert. These three packs show off how much use you can get out of creatively designed modular environment pieces and props.
