Epic Games Inc. - Firmenprofil


Epic Games Inc. (gegründet 1991) mitsamt Tochtergesellschaften entwickelt Spiele für den Desktop, Konsolen, Internet und Mobilmarkt.

Bekannt ist das Unternehmen vor allem durch die eigene Spiele-Engine "Unreal-Engine", welche sie seit 1998 ständig weiterentwickeln.

2012 stieg die chinesische Tencent Holdings Limited bei Epic Games Inc. ein und hält 48.4% der Aktien. Dies ist seit jeher auch Sorge der Spieler, die chinesischen Investoren nicht vertrauen.



Ausgewählte Spiele mit Epic Games Analytics: Street Fighter 5, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2, Nephise Begins, Fallen Cube, Rime

Datarouter


Die Datarouter nach dem gleichnamigen hostnamen benannt, der in Spielen tätigt ist

Unreal Engine Analytics

Unreal Engine Analytics

< > Unreal Engine Analytics
Der Nutzer wird zu Spielstart aufgefordert eine Firewall-Regel für die "datarouter.ol.epicgames.com" zu erstellen. Wird Verkehr erlaubt, starten sich hier 2 Analyticsdienste, die im Hintergrund umfangreich herumschnüffeln. Erfasst werden

Hard/Softwaredaten, IP-Adresse, Nutzungsdauer

und einige spezifische Enginedaten. Als Gastauftritt präsentiert sich Google Analytics mitsamt Aufnahme vom verwendeten Betriebssystem, Spracheinstellungen, Auflösung.

Die Google Analytics ID UA-430727-15 gehört zu endurotrails.ru bzw. helloneighborgame.com.


In dem Beispiel zeigt sich, dass nur sehr wenige

Unreal-Engine

Titel benötigen wirklich eine Internetverbindung z.b. für Multiplayer. Seitens Verbrauchern lohnt es sich daher vorher immer 2x zu schauen ob und was benötigt wird und nicht alles blind zu bestätigen.

Datarouter Analytics im Detail


Die erfassten Daten stammen aus dem Spiel Jump Force von Bandai Namco Entertainment.

Neben Übergabeparametern wie eine eindeutige NutzerID, Produktbezeichnung, SessionID und der "Art und Weise" des Datenuploads erfolgt eine Erfassung von Hardwaredaten, verwendetem Betriebssystem, Uhrzeit, Produktstart/Stopzeiten und was für mich neu war... zusätzliche Erfassung der VR Hardware obwohl diese gar nicht für den Titel genutzt genutzt wird.

Könnte auch sagen, dass Epic Games, Inc. die Griffel nach Dingen ausstrecken zu der sie keine Befugnis haben. Wäre ja nicht das erste Mal ;]

Epic Games Inc. - Epic Games Launcher


Mit dem eigenen

Epic Games Launcher

ist der Datarouter Dienst noch gieriger geworden.

So werden bei weitem mehr Nutzerdaten erfasst als in dem kleinen Beispielsnippet.

Dazu gehören:
AccountID und eindeutige UserID, Uhrzeiten zu jeder (nicht)Aktion, Installationspfade, IP-Erfassung, Wie oft wurde das Programm gestartet, Angaben ob sich das Programm im Systemtray (taskleiste) befindet, Aktive Downloads, Erfassung über Hardware über Sensorik, wo befindet sich der Nutzer jetzt im Produkt und wo kommt er her (refererr/user-agent), Betriebssystem, Prozessor+Taktfrequenz+Kerne und vollständiger Kennung, Grafikkarte mitsamt Details, Downloadgeschwindigkeiten, Festplatten-Schreibgeschwindigkeit, Installationsfehler, SessionIDS, Spracheinstellungen, Laptoperkennung uvm.

Erfassung von Hardwaredaten. Das "Social Backup" ist die umstrittene Funktion die Freundesliste mitsamt Angaben zu Spielen, IDs und Spielzeit in das eigene Installationsverzeichnis zu kopieren und der Rest überschneidet sich mit schon gemachten Angaben.
