Any plan on adding Squad to Epic Games Store ?

Recommended Posts

might get 10% cheaper squad on epic store and extra 10+% for the devs

We'd like to be there eventually, but it requires some technical work to make everything go while not using Steam. We have some higher priorities at the moment (like choppers, 100 players ;)), but it is something we'll continue to evaluate.

well ... make it client side hit detection and run the servers with 15-20 tickrate and 100 players should work right now :))

Or, update the game to the new engine, optimize the game using the new available tools, and then go for 100 players, which is what they're up to now

So basically the thing they've already been doing? As of the last three months or something there have been mentions of the team updating the engine to the new version. But updating an engine is more than just using an installer, you also have to make sure you didn't destroy your game in the update so bugfixing that costs a ton of time.

engine is not that great, only true stress test is having 100 players in a small area alive and in combat, but ramp the respawn times to 5 minutes and you could have 200 players lol

What is even the point of transferring squad to epic store? How's this even a benefit to you as a consumer?

Its definitely more of a benefit to a developer because Epic's cut for using UE4 plus being on the store is 12% as opposed to the additional Steam cut of up to 35%.
