Fortnite-maker opens PC games store to challenge Steam

‘Hades’ Is The Latest Isometric Action Game From Supergiant

To be clear, these are games you'd normally have to pay for that Epic is giving away free.

It seems as though these efforts have slowed in recent months, as Gaylonkin's day job as Epic Games' director of publisher has been to help craft the Epic Store. Every two weeks throughout 2019, the store will also feature one free game, starting with Subnautica on December 14 to 27 followed by Super Meat Boy on December 28 to January 10.

Epic Games circumvented the Google Play Store with the launch of Fortnite by exclusively releasing the massively popular game through Samsung's own store for Galaxy devices and Epic's website for everyone else. If you're the sort of player who's open to and interested in experiencing a game like ours take shape over time, you'll be able to take part in its journey on the Epic Games store. That's regardless of how much their game sells, or how big the studio is.

Right now, the Epic Games Store is currently featuring Ashen, Hello Neighbor: Hide and Seek, and the newly-revealed Hades from developer Supergiant Games, while upcoming titles that were highlighted for the platform include Darksiders 3, The Pathless, World War Z, Outer Wilds, and many more down the line.

Now You: Will you install the Epic Games Store on your devices? Journey, the highly acclaimed PlayStation exclusive, is also due to release for the first time on PC via the Epic Games Store, though we don't know yet when that will be. Individual game listing pages are heavy on screenshots, and contain little more than a brief description, trailers, and hardware requirements.

How Epic manages developer expectations will be a point of concern.

Gaylonkin's extracurricular hobby as SteamSpy was praised by many, including indie developers, publications and general users alike.
