Refreshed 16th Dec (Posted 7th Dec)
Epic's newly-launching PC games store comes with a strong selling point over Steam, being the promise of a free game every two weeks (to keep)- and they're starting off very promisingly!

  • From 14 December to 27 December, Subnautica will be available for free
  • From 28 December to 10 January, Super Meat Boy will be available for free

Please consider supporting this as much as you can. Even if you're like me and hate having your games split across multiple launchers and normally only ever buy games on Steam, the monopoly that Valve holds at the moment isn't good for either developers or consumers. A healthy bit of competition should benefit everyone.
I'd like to thank all those skin-buying Fortnite players for helping to fund this venture .
Woaah Subnautica for free is very surprising , had it on my steam wishlist for ages so will be glad to pick this up

Personally doesn't bother me about all these different launchers as it's good competition for steam and it's not like there are absolutely loads.

Steam, uPlay, Origin, GoG, Twitch, Xbox & Blizzard + this doesn't really bother me , can understand how it might bother some who have a huge catalogue but I manage mine using an app on the Google play store called "My Game Collection" which I would highly recommend
Journey the PlayStation exclusive is coming to the epic game store as well for the pc

Nice, it's a good idea as I'd have no interest without the incentives. Heat!
Free=heat
According to their website the dates are the other way round, with Subnautica first then Super Meat Boy.

Been planning to get Subnautica all year long so happy about this.

Cheers for recommending My Game Collection. I cant seem to fnd an auto add to steam for example. I have 700+ games and really didnt want to manually enter then haha

It's pretty basic in the fact it doesn't have automated features like that, there is a steam one though but I think it's just browser based

I only use it for games I intend to play and have hidden away 100+ games on steam /removed them from my library as I have no intention of playing them, got to the point last year where I was just hoarding games and decided to tidy everything up and the app I mentioned helped

Used to be the same but decided it was time to only be purchasing games I'd actually find the time to play, still got a backlog of 100+ games to play but too busy getting through PS4 backlog at the minute as well as films and TV shows , not enough hours in the day sadly but at least I'm a bit more organised now

You could always just organise your games within the steam client by using categories or hiding those you don't intend to ever play, I have a small case of OCD so for me it's essential, couldn't imagine having 700 games!

Can imagine you getting excited when a deal on here pops up only to realise you already own it

yeah im sslloowwwlllyy moving to the mentalitly to own buy it if I intend to play it. As being on a PC gamer, im starting to use the "Im only going to buy until its sub £30". Done that for the last few games which seemed to have slowed down the buying..I think

yes, I have bought a good few duplicate keys only to find i already own them. I usually give them to Illusionary
for his weekly game comp

I might have to have a day of going through ignoring games, I need to do it..
Subnautica is suppose to be brill. Thanks, I'll have to remember this.
Heat.

!Remindme

....

This store is drm free?
Heat
Will this version of Subnautica be playable in VR? (Heat either way!)
Developers get 88% of sale revenue, great for the industry! Support this as much as pos, with the free games it's a win win.
Will developers get volume sales though ? Will they offer the game cheaper than on steam or just make more money ? I’m at a loss as to why anyone thinks another games launcher is needed.

There are too many developers making games that are mediocre and they need to remember the workd does not owe them success or money.
A bit confused, is this free to play in between those dates, or free to download and keep for life between those dates?
Hot Hot Hot! so hot my fingers are burning!
Now this is a good freebie (Subnautica, that is. SMB far too difficult for my aged gamer reflexes ).
Epic just raised a ****tonne of money from investors so I'm delighted they are spending it on bribes for us lot

Why not? Pc games share the same multi-player servers regardless of which platform its purchased on?

I don't think this is true. Call of Duty windows player were cut off and Bullet storm on Origin is the lite version as it cant play with the steam version.
cross platform play ? i.e. pc and xbox ?

I'm at the sub £5 stage... £30 is still a lot for a PC game.

true £30 is alot and i do try and hold out but if your buddies are playing it too, it becomes all more tempting to pick it up
Lovely thanks
Been meaning to get this via the oculus store or steam. Glad I held back. Wonder if it will be VR compat

I would normally agree but I like many are worried about Epic, or more precisely their parent company getting much power in the consumer market space. Tencent are already far too big, its akin to celebrating Facebook opening a PC gaming market place i.e. while its good for the consumer as it means competition they aren't doing it for altruistic reasons, and the fact they are undercutting Steam so much shows they expect to make the revenue not directly.

And me, what a bargain.
Multiple Launchers?, its common sense to spread your games across a few accounts and launchers, i'm not that OCD.
Anyone tried to install the Game Launcher for the Epic Store? Seems to be fixed to installing on the C: drive with no option to change it.

edit: nevermind, I forgot I had installed the Epic Games Launcher ages ago when someone sent me a free copy of Fortnite STW, I guess it's probably just spotted that and forcing me to install there again.

Call of Duty windows player were cut off of what?
GFWL was shut down a couple of years ago. prior to this you could happily play bullet storm coop regardless of where you bought it.
