With Support-A-Creator, Fortnite content creators can earn a little money. However, the chance that you will become a millionaire with your YouTube videos is still small … Other news in this N8W8 about: developments at Guerrilla Games, the region lock in PUBG, the voice actors from Control and the Platinum Trophy in Marvel’s Spider -Man.

Fortnite content creators will soon be able to make real money

With a new Fortnite event, Fortnite content creators (YouTube, Twitch, etc.) will soon be able to make real money. This Support-A-Creator event ends on December 31st.

It works like this: during Support-A-Creator you can choose “Support a Creator” from the Item Shop in Battle Royale or the Loot Tab in Save the World. Then you can enter the Epic tag of your preferred content creator. He or she will then receive a portion of the V-Bucks you have spent.

According to Epic, content creators include creators, streamers, artists and cosplayers. If you are interested, you can register yourself, after which Epic will determine whether you meet the criteria. For example, you have to create Fortnite content regularly for 30 days and have at least 1000 followers on one of the major social media channels.

As a Fortnite content creator, don’t expect to walk in suddenly. For 10,000 V-Bucks spent, the creative gets about $ 5. Epic is thus tempering expectations: people can expect “modest results”.

By the way, Johan showed you yesterday how you can become rich with streaming.

Guerrilla Games hires ex-Ubisoft devs for new game

Someone at ResetEra noticed that Guerrilla Games is busy hiring new employees. Specifically, it concerns a number of people who previously worked on Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege. The Guardian highlights two of these people:

The first is game director Simon Larouche, who started working on Guerrila Games’ new “Secret Game is Secret!” Game nine months ago. Larouche also previously worked for the developer on Killzone 2.

Chris Lee is also a well-known name. He was the online and multiplayer designer for Rainbow Six: Siege. At Guerrilla Games he now holds the position of principal game designer, again for that new, unannounced game.

So both gentlemen have a background in multiplayer design … Let’s start the rumor machine. The Guardian thinks that it could just be that the next Sony exclusive contains a thick multiplayer mode.

This makes a sequel to Horizon: Zero Dawn less likely than a new Killzone. However, a completely new game is also not out of the question. “Secret Game is Secret!” in any case, remains a wonderful code name!

Trailer abundance

The Guardian is not the silliest. She understands that you have some start-up problems on such a Monday morning. So herewith four different trailers to rub the sleep out of your eyes with a chill. Take a quick look at:

  • Friday the 13th: Killer Puzzle – October 25 on Nintendo Switch
  • The Missing: JJ Macfield and the Island of Memories – October 11 on PC, PS4, Switch and Xbox One
  • Descent – early 2019 on PC, PS4, Switch and Xbox One
  • Chronus Arc – October 10 on Xbox One

PUBG players are asking for region lock for China

After a recent update, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (at the request of the players) works with region locking. However, this region locking is not entirely appreciated in practice …. So players ask PUBG Corp. now to restrict region locking to China.

With PC update 22, your server is automatically determined based on your location. If you want to play with someone from another region, matchmaking automatically determines the best region. On paper this sounds like a good development, but in practice it means that players can have to deal with significant latency.

Sidenote: Before the update, Chinese players regularly appeared on European / American servers. They were charged with cheating and hacking. This created the call for region locking.

PUBG Corp. has now released a patch to fix things. However, this does not seem to solve all problems, as the call for a specific Chinese region lock continues.

Undoubtedly to be continued. Until then, the Guardian would like to hear about your findings.

Control gets voice actors from Max Payne and Alan Wake

The Guardian thinks we hear very little about Control. So she will change that tonight. She wants to tell you about the famous voice actors in the game of Remedy Entertainment.

The developer has chosen an all-star cast with voice actors from their previous games Max Payne, Alan Wake and Quantum Break. These include James McCaffrey (Max Payne), Matthew Porretta (Alan Wake) and Courtney Hope (Quantum Break).

If you want to get an impression of their characters, the Guardian also has a dev diary for you. In the video below see the above mentioned James McCaffrey and Courtney Hope, and for example also creative director Same Lake himself.

Control should be released on PC, PS4 and Xbox One in 2019.

1 in 10 players gets Spider-Man Platinum Trophy

Marvel’s Spider-Man is one of the best-selling titles of the year. The game sells faster than any Sony title. That most people after this purchase are willing to actually spend quite a few hours as Spidey is evident from the percentage of players who win the Platinum Trophy.

Currently, 10 percent of players have achieved the Platinum Trophy in Marvel’s Spider-Man. That may not even sound like a lot, but 1 in 10 is really bizarrely high. Compare the percentage with a number of other PS4 games:

  • Horizon Zero Dawn – 6.1 percent
  • Infamous: Second Son – 5.8 percent
  • Bloodborne – 5.6 percent
  • God of War – 5.5 percent
  • Until Dawn – 2.9 percent
  • Persona 5 – 2.4 percent
  • Detroit: Become Human – 2.1 percent
  • Shadow of the Colossus (PS4) – 1.6 percent
  • Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End – 0.8 percent
  • The Last Guardian – 0.4 percent

Of course there are games where the Platinum Trophy is achieved more often, such as Undertale (21.4 percent). For a large open world game, however, 10 percent is exceptional.
