The legal battle between Epic Games and Apple began last week and even now, new revelations are still coming forward. With court documents revealing Epic's plans for a mobile edition of Rocket League, a next-gen upgrade with Rocket League "Next", and several planned additions to Fortnite, we've got a further look at plans for Epic Games Store growth.
With the legal drama having laid bare Epic's business strategy - including how much they paid for those free weekly games - we've now also learned that Epic are planning a loyalty program for the Epic Games Store, which would include Rocket League and Fortnite rewards.
Epic Games Store Is Planning A Loyalty Program, Includes Rocket League And Fortnite Rewards
As spotted by known Fortnite news leaker iFireMonkey, this planned update wouldn't impact players on other PC platforms like Steam - which would only affect Rocket League players, granted - but aims to reward those using the Epic Games Store version for both.
Furthermore, that document also advises planned "incremental tie-in content" given away on the Epic Games Store would be sold on console platforms, though the wording implies this would be a paid microtransaction to offset costs. This remains unconfirmed by Epic, but we'll keep you updated if/when this happens.
