Epic Games announces the launch of what it is calling Cabined Accounts.
These allow younger players unable to do the math on age-gates to play Epic
games like Fortnite, Fall Guys, and Rocket League:
around the world will see a one-time request for their age when they log into
Epic Games Store or our games. If you are a younger player, your Epic account
will be a Cabined Account and you will be asked to provide a parent or
guardian’s email address to begin the parental consent process.
You will continue to be able to use the Epic Games Launcher, but will need
Parental Controls to be set in order to access certain features. Once your
parent sets up Parental Controls, your experience will respect the settings they
select and your account will no longer be a Cabined Account.
