Facebook won’t take a cut of creators’ earnings until 2023

Published

on

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg says the company won’t take a percentage of creators’ revenue until 2023. The policy covers paid online events, fan subscriptions, badges and “upcoming independent news products” (in other words, newsletters). When Facebook does start taking a cut, “it will be less than the 30 percent that Apple and others take,” Zuckerberg wrote in a Facebook post.

He noted Facebook is building a “new payout interface so creators can see how different companies’ fees and taxes are impacting their earnings.” A Facebook spokesperson told Variety creators will see how much they’ll make after taxes, refunds and the in-app purchase fees Apple and Google take when purchases are made through iOS and Android apps. The interface will be on the web only at first and only for paid online events to begin with. That’s a clear move to make Facebook seem like a more attractive option than competitors like Twitch, Twitter and Substack.

Facebook made the announcement ahead of Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference kicking off on Monday. A Bloomberg report over the weekend suggested Apple will reveal “a control panel that provides in-depth detail on what data are being collected by each third-party app installed on a user’s device.” The payout interface might be a response to that move, since Zuckerberg clearly took a shot at Apple in his post.

Apple and Facebook have been at loggerheads for quite some time. One of the major recent bones of contention is an option to limit cross-app tracking in iOS 14.5, which Facebook claimed would impact its ad revenue.

Facebook, of course, isn’t the only major company to target Apple over its 30 percent revenue cut. Apple and Epic Games are awaiting a ruling on a case related to what the Fortnite publisher claims are monopolistic practices on the App Store, which include revenue sharing.

To say Ubisoft had a busy E3 2021 would be an understatement — it touched on many of its biggest game franchises, including relatively new ones that didn’t get more than a teaser in years past. Thankfully, you don’t have to wade through the gaming giant’s entire presentation to see the star attractions. We’ve produced a video that captures the highlights of Ubisoft Forward in 12 minutes. Rainbow Six Extraction and Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora are just some of the attention-getters — you’ll also see news for Far Cry 6, Mario + Rabbids and more.

‘Godfall’ will hit PS4 on August 10th

Published

on

Godfall was the first game confirmed for PlayStation 5 all the way back at The Game Awards in 2019. Counterplay Games and Gearbox are looking to expand the player base by bringing it to PS4 as well. If you pick up the flashy looter-slasher on the last-gen console, you’ll get a free upgrade to the PS5 edition. 

There have been a ton of cases of PS4 and Xbox One titles getting PS5 and Xbox Series X/S upgrades, but we haven’t seen many examples of games going in the opposite direction.

A paid expansion called Fire and Darkness is coming, with new enemies and a mission to save the Fire Realm. All players will get access to the Lightbringer update, which adds a new endgame mode, a matchmaking beta, dozens of loot items and more than 50 skins for Valorplates, the core armor sets that give players different abilities and buffs. 

Godfall will arrive on PS4 on August 10th. The expansion and update will be released on the same day on PS4, PS5 and Epic Games Store.

‘Trek to Yomi’ is a Kurosawa-inspired 2D samurai game coming in 2022

Published

on

If you played through the entirety of Ghost of Tsushima in Kurosawa mode and it left you wanting for more cinematic samurai action, you’ll want to look out for Trek to Yomi. Announced today during Devolver Digital’s E3 presentation, the 2.5D side-scroller sees you play as a young samurai charged with protecting their town and its inhabitants. You’ll face off against both human and supernatural enemies. Like Tsushima, the game attempts to emulate the look of Akira Kurosawa’s films. Judging by the trailer, it does a pretty good job of it too.          

Developed by Flying Wild Hog and Leonard Menchiari, Trek to Yomi will come out on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S and PC in 2022.
