The Epic Games studio behind the Fortnite phenomenon (of course there are more) came in 2018 with their own game platform Epic Games Store, where the creators themselves choose titles and try to lure players into a number of interesting benefits. Probably the biggest one is to release big AAA titles every two weeks for free - Subnautica, Super Meat Boy and What’s Left of Edith Finch is a trio of games released so far, which players could download for free over a period of time.
The Epic Games Store is a marketplace with its own website where users can download individual games, some exclusively for that store. The game platform itself offers a number of interesting titles such as Unreal Tournament, Shadow Complex, Fortnite, Subnautica: Below Zero, Ashen, Super Meat Boy Forever, Darksiders lll, Gorogoa, The Walking Dead, Hades and others that will come in the near future. A recent controversy related to the title Metro: Exodus, which was originally supposed to be the exclusive content of Steam, but Epic agreed with Deep Silver creators to be the only mediator by February 14, 2020. The restriction does not apply to buyers who purchased the game at Steam in advance and will have access to it from Steam.
To use Epic Store Games, you need to create an Epic account to link / link to PlayStation, Microsoft, Facebook, Google or Nintendo. Unlike Steam, where Valve's policy is uncompromising and takes 30% of revenue from game developers, Epic charges only 12%, plus an additional 5% when games use the Unreal Engine. Creators' efforts to impose fair conditions are also evident to game promoters and streamers, which players can reward for bringing them into play.
In the near future, cooperation between Ubisoft and Epic Games is planned, which will bring several attractive titles. As far as the look of the shop itself is concerned, it is solved as easily as possible with great game teasers and a side menu with the Library, Shop, Homepage and Friendlist.
