New character Mama and Heartman are being played by actress Margaret Qualley (Death Note, The Leftovers) and Danish film director Nicolas Winding Refn (Bronson, Valhalla Rising) respectively in their yet to be specified important roles.

Sam is obviously portrayed by actor Norman Reedus (The Boondock Saints, The Walking Dead), who is working in teams with Die-Hardman and Deadman. He uses a Bridge Baby to perhaps maintain link between past and present just in case.

Cliff is first shown to have been talking to one of the Bridge Babies before becoming a black-goo soaked revenant-like entity with a connection to something greater than himself but apparently, Higgs too can access the same link.

Horizon Zero Dawn Sequel Confirmed by Voice Actor

A sequel for PlayStation 4-exclusive title Horizon Zero Dawn is seemingly confirmed by voice actor Janina Gavankar.

Back in February 2019, developer Guerrilla Games celebrated second anniversary of release for their 2017 action role-playing game Horizon Zero Dawn that sold over 10 million copies worldwide to become one of the best-selling PlayStation 4 games.

That level of success pretty much guarantees a sequel for this PS4-exclusive but rather than speculating, we have actress Janina Gavankar, who voiced a character named Tatai in Frozen Wilds DLC confirming its existence lately.

This is not something that Epic has jump on board with and in fact, they have been developing launcher for their own game compatible for Mac and PC that supports a digital commerce worldwide by handling several different payment methods.

So, to get into a direct relationship with players and help all developers, Epic Games Store will be launched soon. Though their initial plan only includes platforms like Mac and PC, there are plans for expanding to Android and other open platforms for a broader reach by 2019.

Epic will open up with a hand full of curated games and then will expand their collection as they progress. People can either purchase the game from the store or just access it with Epic Games launcher but everything else will be handled through the application.

Current Fortnite players are already considered as users of their launcher and Epic Games decided to make their game exclusively available to their digital store. This is a practice that would be continued for the foreseeable future.

The biggest perk of the platform is that it offers a more flattering revenue split with developers than Steam or any other. Moving aside from the standard 70/30 revenue split, Epic Games Store is considering giving developers 88 percent of the revenue for the games.

It that is not sounding crazy enough, developers won't have to pay up the 5 percent engine royalty for using Unreal Engine to create the game. Epic will cover for that 5% of extra charge from their small margin on a total of 12%.

Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney believes that business for digital storefronts have grown quite exponentially over the decade but the economies revolving around it has not benefited the developers much for years; especially indie developers.

Aside from that, Epic also launched Support-A-Creator program recently that will hook up content creators from YouTube, streamers on Twitch, video game Bloggers and such with developers to help them share revenue for affiliate marketing. That's so EPIC!
