Epic announced in 2018 that it would make the multiplayer systems it developed for Fortnite available free for every developer to use, and today it’s completed that task. The full software development kit is now available, providing the “essential framework” for friends lists, matchmaking, lobbies, and other cross-platform multiplayer services for games made in any engine and distributed on any store. 

What Epic is offering is divided into two parts: Game Services and Epic Account Services. The Game Services are things like matchmaking, lobby, leaderboard, and stat tracking systems. The Epic Account Services are for developers who want to let players sign into their game and find friends using their existing Epic account.
