Epic is sharing Fortnite's cross-platform system with developers for free

Another day, another big story from North Carolina-based Epic Games.

The firm has announced that will be releasing the cross-platform service that it used to power Fortnite to developers, free of charge.

The middleware and game developer said that this will be rolled out over the course of 2019. It will have integration with Unity and Unreal Engine and primarily be powered by Amazon Web Services.

Cross-platform data storage and cloud saves will launch in Q2 2019. Cross-platform login, friends, presence, profile and entitlements will be launching between Q2 and 3 2019 on PC, with other platforms set to benefit at some point during the year.
