Epic Games Store is live and promises free games every fortnight

‘Hades’ Is The Latest Isometric Action Game From Supergiant

Supergiant Games Announces Hades, Available Now In Early Access On The Epic Games Store

The Pathless, the new game from the makers of Abzu, is so far only listed for Epic.

To be clear, these are games you'd normally have to pay for that Epic is giving away free. Definitely get on that even if you just install it and have no other plans for the Epic Store.

In case you hadn't gleaned this detail from today's many posts mentioning games launching on Epic's Store: Epic's new digital games store has now opened for business. Subnautica, an underwater survival game, is now $24.99 on Steam, but Epic Games will give away free copies from December 14th - 27th. I've got a strong suspicion (and semi-legit sources) that epic wants creators to build things for their games and be able to sell it. Only five additional games are available for purchase right now with more being listed as "coming soon". Darksiders 3, Subnautica and Super Meat Boy are all scheduled to launch on the service later this month, too, which brings us nicely onto the Free Game Initiative.

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.

On top of new games, it's now confirmed that acclaimed PlayStation exclusive Journey is heading to PC via the Epic Games Store, published by Annapurna Interactive.

Store pages for individual games like Hades have some information and trailers but no user reviews or links to forums, newsfeeds, and lots of other features which can occasionally be useful but also overwhelming and unnecessary.

Epic said it would charge less commission for listing games, so more cash would be returned to developers. CEO Tim Sweeney's tirade against Microsoft's UWP platform and the more recent Fortnite on Android drama has given the game developer and publisher a more "pro-developer" image.
