The unreal marketplace is planning to take a 30% cut of any assets I sell. Do I also need to pay for unreal engine to be upload and sell my assets?
i think you only need to pay subscription fee, because you don’t build or release any game that run on the engine and sell, just making the asset.
Well you need to be able to test that they work in engine so I’m going to say that yes, you do need a copy of the engine.
Obviously they wouldn’t allow content that hasn’t been packaged in the unreal engine to go on the marketplace because otherwise customers couldn’t be sure that the content would actually work.
Your subscription doesn’t need to be active to submit or sell items in the marketplace.
You of course need a copy of the engine however, so you’ll need to subscribe at least once.
