Epic Games announced recently that its hugely popular retail platform, the Epic Games Store, is now available for developers interested in exploring AI-powered capabilities. Epic Games founder and CEO Tim Sweeney announced the news in a blog post that detailed the new offerings.
The Epic Games Store has been open since 2019 and provides an easy way for developers to share and sell their video games, including support for cross-platform titles. The platform is also now opening up to developers using AI to power their games. Sweeney said in the blog post that developers will be able to use machine learning, natural language processing, deep learning, and computer vision.
The Epic Games Store now offers powerful AI tools to developers interested in using AI-enabled features in their games. These tools include the SensiML Toolkit, which provides developers with access to a suite of AI tools designed specifically for video game development. By using AI-enabled features, developers can create immersive in-game experiences that offer more realistic and engaging user interactions. Developers can also use AI in their games to create photo-realistic visuals and better analytics about players’ behaviors in-game.
The Epic Games Store also provides developers with a variety of free tools for making their games more successful. Developers can access Epic Games’ analytics platform to track the performance of their games, as well as get guidance from experts in marketing and analytics. Developers can also access the Epic Games Store’s network of digital publishers, which is made up of the world’s leading game platform owners. This network helps developers get their games in front of more players and gain valuable insight into their markets.
With the opening of the Epic Games Store to AI-powered developers, Tim Sweeney believes developers will have the opportunity to create new immersive experiences that will continue to push the boundaries of gaming. He said in the blog post, “These new tools, combined with the power of Epic Online Services, will let developers create compelling experiences that bring the emotion and realism of the real world into their game worlds.”
