    Epic stuff said this can be used even by developers which dont use UE to make their games.

    I wonder how the functionality will be also payment and entire process of enabling multiplayer in our games (if someone is interested).

    All in all interesting service cause i plan to implement multiplayer in my game and i'm too scary of unity solution cause it seems convoluted and nearly imposible for solo.

    Dang Unreal really just doing it up lately ain't they? I installed Unreal earlier, I opened it up for 10ish mins, then I felt like I was cheating on my marriage and closed it, Unity made me feel horrible for opening up Unreal :(

    Whyyy Unity, why you gotta make me your slave, the pros of ease of use makes it so hard to divorce you. lol.

    But naw really, (true story actually), but anyways, this is really interesting, I'm definitely going to be looking into this.

    Must admit, i put the link while in hype fire without study it myself but i do that already so ITS:
    - Avaible NOW,
    - Its free,
    - Engines supported on the front are UE (obviously), Unity, Godot,
    - SDK to download even for C#.

    its a kill shot for almost every game BaaS
    can't beat free (real free, not playfab free), i have no doubt many of these services will go belly up in next year

    Nah, those BaaS providers are usually focused more on mobile/F2P, which has some quite specific requirements.

    The Epic services look very interesting for anyone building an indie multiplayer game on PC, though
