Psyonix/Epic games

Post by Yatak »

A place to discuss rumours and thoughts around Epic games who bought Psyonix (Makers of Rocket league).

Rocket league would be a perfect fit for BIDS, it's essentially football with rocket powered cars. With multiple stadiums that have room for borders and billboards, there is plenty of advertising real estate in the game.

While not currently free to play, it's likely it will progress to this in the near future, which would be a perfect time to implement in game ads.

They have just introduced a new timed mode and created billboard in game to advertise it. They also advertise their rocket pass in game on some of the stadiums borders. I have attached an example of the new billboards.

New Plaza environment/city in Epic's Fortnite game looks like it has plenty of potential for in game adverts, lots of billboards, sign posts, shopfronts, vending machines and even a restaurant called Pizza Pit.

Little bizarre we haven't heard anything since the RNS of the partnership last August. Hopefully something building under the surface here. Getting into Rocket league or fortnite would be transformational

I think that RNS was specifically about a plugin to get the Bids SDK into the Unreal Engine, not per se specifically about a collaboration on an Epic game... But yes, Rocket League and/or Fortnite would be pretty darn juicy.
