Epic Games Store launches with handful of games

Hades BRAND NEW Supergiant Games title available NOW on Epic Store

Epic has said that it plans to give customers a new free game every two weeks. "Epic takes 12%. And if you're using Unreal Engine, Epic will cover the 5% engine royalty for sales on the Epic Games store, out of Epic's 12%".

The other notable thing about the Epic Games store is its revenue split with game developers, which is closer to the generous terms of an itch.io than it is with Steam. The first will be Subnautica, available between 14 and 27 December 2018, and the second Super Meat Boy, between 28 December 2018 and 10 January 2019.

Epic Games' new digital storefront went live last night during the Game Awards and it already has an exclusive to call its own: Hades, the latest game from the developers of Bastion and Pyre at Supergiant Games.

Epic Games has enough pull thanks to Fortnite being the game right now. That's regardless of how much their game sells, or how big the studio is. Super Meat Boy, the brutally hard platformer, is up next from December 28th - January 10th.

Taking on Wladimir Klitschko at his fortress in Germany was seen as mission impossible, yet he emphatically defied those odds. I still can't get to grips with it and how any judge and any single person watching that fight couldn't give it to Tyson.

If you've played Fortnite, you likely have an Epic Games account, which is what you need to log in to the Epic Games store.

As promised, publisher Epic Games has thrown open the doors to its online store today, with a small selection of PC games on its shelves. Individual game listing pages are heavy on screenshots, and contain little more than a brief description, trailers, and hardware requirements. Specifically, early adopters of the platform will be able to pick up new games like Ashen, Hello Neighbor: Hide and Seek and Hades, which is available through early access.

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

The latest announcement also shared some important notes about how this will work, including what it means for developers.
