Epic Games, the developer of many famous video games, incl. Fortnite, Gears of War, Shadow Complex and Infinity Blade announced the acquisition of Sketchfab. Epic Games has been around since 1991 and is one of the largest and most important game developers in the world. Sketchfab started working with the company earlier this year as part of Epic MegaGrant. Now it has officially confirmed joining the company. The acquisition brings many benefits to both parties and allows you to connect the virtual and real world.

Sketchfab is a platform that represents a great online portfolio of 3D designers. It has many social functions, allows you to comment on published projects and add them to your favorites. Creators can easily post their work and get inspiration from others. Sketchfab is a 3D creation tool available in all major browsers and operating systems. Users can easily upload their designs, purchase 3D models from other creators, and create a unique community. Currently, there are over 4 million 3D assets on the platform.

The acquisition of Sketchfab by Epic Games has many advantages, not only for the platform itself, but also for its users. To bring even more benefits to its creators, Sketchfab lowered its sales tax to 12%. Additionally, all functions available in the Plus version are free. Thanks to this, sending more and larger files will not require additional fees. All users who subscribe to the Plus plan will get the Pro plan, however, they will have the option to upgrade to the free version. There have been changes to the Pro plan as well. Instead of 30 files, you can send as many as 50 3D models.

The combination of Epic Games and Sketchfab will make 3D, AR and VR content more accessible and expand the ecosystem of 3D design creators, key to the alternative 3D world. Game developer Epic Games announces full integration of tools available on Sketchfab, leaving the platform an independent brand service that will work closely with the Unreal Engine team. Joining Sketchfab to Epic Games will expand the platform and create new tools available online, providing users with an even better user experience.
