Ylands rewards users’ imagination and creativity with real money, allowing Creators to host and monetize their games
PRAGUE, Czech Republic, September 10, 2020 – Bohemia Interactive announces today the launch of a new update for its free-to-play online game platform Ylands which will bring to life one of the most important milestones for the game this far, the Creators Club. It is a program and a system designed with users in mind, for creators to pursue a real profit by sharing their creations with the community, monetizing access to their games, to new levels, item upgrades and, really, anything they can imagine. The new Ylands update is available starting today on Steam, Android, and Apple.
Ylands was launched in December last year, and since then its community has been growing steadily. “Ylands is one of our most ambitious projects at Bohemia Interactive up to date, and seeing the creations that our players come up with made us really think that all that work they put into making games for others to enjoy should be rewarded. With this update, we make sure we continue to provide and always look for our community,” explains Petr Poláček, Bohemia Interactive’s Head of Marketing.
Creators joining this club will not only enjoy numerous benefits such as better exchange rates or cool in-game swag, but will also be able to initiate a ‘Creator’s Commission’ ”; and get real-life rich via their creativity!
