WHY DOES FORTNITE JUST RE-TEXTURE THEIR SKINS AND ADD A FEW MINOR 3D OBJECTS AND SELL THEM FOR $20? DO PEOPLE ACTUALLY BUY THIS SHIT? ARE THE DEVS THAT UNCREATIVE?

>why re-texture and sell..
Because videogames is mass-market cash cows and not art to ones in charge of decission like this.

>Do people buy?
Yes, they are called commonly known as 'whales'. A mere percentage of the user base that make up a very large percentage of a games microtransaction revenue.

>Are dev's this uncreative.
No. These graphic artists are a contracted to do work handed to them, they're not in charge of the decission making pipeline.
Key thing to understand is that the people who work at a games post release extended life support is generally not that studios A-tier devs that created the base game.
That tallent is typically tasked with the next major project rather than things like this, you have a lot of junior 'in training' B-tier people working at DLC's and cosmetics for various triple A's.

>WHY DOES FORTNITE JUST RE-TEXTURE THEIR SKINS AND ADD A FEW MINOR 3D OBJECTS AND SELL THEM FOR $20?
Because they can. Quite literally.

>DO PEOPLE ACTUALLY BUY THIS SHIT?
Mommy's credit card is one of the most powerful items this world has to offer.

>ARE THE DEVS THAT UNCREATIVE?
To remake a game every time a "Seasonal Event" occurs would be pretty stupid, from both consumer and developer perspectives. Consumers are probably going to find it too fast, and there won't be enough resources to do it every time.
Fortnite is slowly entering a "life support" stage, like the other anon said. You're just giving it small injections then and again to keep interest (i.e. cash flow) going, and you use the revenue generated to fund a bigger project (in an ideal world; Epic could just be hoarding cash).
It's a formula that works. Tried and tested in games uncountable. Throw in a few cosmetic items every few months, spice up the gameplay, and you've sustained a title i.e. userbase for multiple years without having to deal with new IPs not working out, etc. etc.

My only hope is that Epic is actually putting the cash somewhere interesting outside of UE. Fortnite's made a fuckton and if they aren't sinking it into a new GoW/Bulletstorm/a new triple-A IP, that's gonna be pretty disappointing.

I thought GoW was now Microcock's property
>>
>>654603
Fuck, you're right. Guess it's just Bulletstorm/Unreal/a new IP then.

youre gonna have a heart attack once you find out what Overwatch is

I was really hoping the Fortnites success would allow Epic to dedicate more resources to creating the next Unreal Tournament game. But instead they just announced UT was completely on ice and they have no developers working on it. I know arena shooters aren't the most popular genre anymore, but I thought the team based modes and vehicles would be a draw for people that aren't into the death match modes.

>>654609
Overwatch at least you can get shit without giving extra money.
Fortnite puts all their shit behind paywalls.
>>

Because Overwatch is a full price game up front, so they don't need you to buy cosmetics, although you can buy loot boxes.
Fortnite is completely free up front, so they need to make money somehow. Being able to buy power would completely ruin the game, so the only thing they can sell is cosmetics.

>>654632
discussing selling 3D models relates to /3/, hide the thread if it's triggering you.
>>
Fortnite made things like Epic store possible so that's very nice.
>>
god. fornite porn must be good.
>>
>>654579
Retextures are a common thing in games and someone still has to draw up the new textures
>>
>>654626
Hahaha. Fortnite is free. Overwatch costs money to buy the game and they sell lootboxes
>>
>>654579
Normalfags. When PC gaming was expensive, only the smartest had PCs and they weren't stupid enough to buy simple textures for $20.

Now that everyone has PCs and phones, it allowed dumb idiots with $300 PCs and phones to spend their low-iq money on in game skins.
>>

>FORTNITE SUX
Always did.
>>
>>654592
>Wanting another Bulletstorm
>Wanting a new triple-A title from a company that can only make knockoffs of popular games from fotm genres
Best case is Epic keeps working on their engine and maybe releases a new Unreal Tournement that isn't shit.
>>
Because they literally can.
>>
>>654696
Still fucking bullshit
>>
>>654697
Battle Royale mode is free, and if you want 99% of skins you need to buy Epix Bux to unlock them.
>>
>>654579
Just imagine; a whole generation will grow up and pester us with Fortnite nostalgia one day
>>
>>654949
Fortnite nostalgia is gonna be the future Warcraft nostalgia. Bunch of fanboys
