Losing a Battle, Not a War: The Court tentatively allowed Apple to remove Fortnite from the App Store, but forbade it from removing Unreal Engine products
Apple's lawsuit against Epic Games kicked off this week. According to the preliminary conclusion of the court, Apple received the right not to return Fortnite to its store, but forbade it to block Unreal Engine. However, this is only a preliminary decision, not a final one - it is important to remember.
According to the judge, blocking the engine will deal a serious blow to third-party developers. Companies can sue among themselves, but outsiders should not suffer because of this.
This decision is only a temporary measure that will not affect the outcome of the lawsuit, and so, during the trial, Apple was still referred to as a company engaged in unfair struggle with competitors.
Phase 2 of the process will begin on September 28, as requested by Epic. Fortnite will be out of the App Store during this time.

Fall Guys is the most downloaded game in PS Plus history
The non-standard battle royale about clumsy men continues to take over the world and break records. So, this week it became known about her great success on Steam and PS Plus.
According to Sony, the game is the most downloaded product in the history of the PlayStation subscription service. However, the company dispensed with specific figures, so we have no exact data.
But they are on Steam. So, the publisher of the game Devolver Digital said that 7 million people bought the game on the Valve site. At the same time, just a little over two weeks ago, the publisher reported that this figure was only 2 million. I mean, the game was acquired by 5 million users during this time.
Fall Guys will only continue to gain traction as Season 2 was presented at Gamescom 2020

New Nintendo Switch really aims for 4K resolution
In the first digest, we wrote that, according to various media reports, Nintendo is preparing to release a new version of its console next year. Now this information has been confirmed by Bloomberg, citing their sources.
So far, according to the publication, the specifics of the console have not been fully approved, but Nintendo is fully committed to 4K resolution, as it tries to compete with the PS5 and XSX. However, this does not mean that this function will still make it to the final version of the console.
Bloomberg also writes that the launch of a new version of the Nintendo console will secure a large line of games, both from its internal studios and products from third-party developers. They will all be different: some games are for casual gamers, others for hardcore gamers. Now, the recent news of a possible remake of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword doesn't seem all that crazy. Due to the fact that the company is so busy playing games for the Pro version of its console, this year has not been rich in major releases for Switch.
The console is expected to be released in 2021 in the first quarter. The successful launch of the second version of Switch, according to game analysts, will make it the most successful and long-lived Nintendo console.
Chivalry Medieval Warfare II has been postponed
Another game fell victim to the coronavirus pandemic. Thus, the medieval massacre of Chivalry II was postponed to 2021 without an exact release date.
However, this will benefit the game, since during the revision the developers intend to add more maps and functions to the game that they were going to release only after the release as part of the game support.
Now you can sign up for a closed alpha test of the game. There will be an open beta later, and its timing will be announced later.
In addition, the game will be released on the next generation consoles. It will appear on PC via EGS.
This was all the important news from the beginning of the week. Keep calm and keep playing and we'll see you next week ... in the next digests ...
