Epic, Humble Store partner for game sales, including exclusives


Epic Games announced added new games that will hot the Epic Games store. It will also be available on Windows Store at launch. That's good news for fans of the franchise, and it appears that the game's switch to Epic Games Store has been a success. Games like Obsidian's upcoming FPS RPG The Outer Worlds, which was on Steam's storefront for months after its reveal, are now marked for the Epic Store instead of Steam.

During yesterday's "State of Unreal" keynote at the Game Developers Conference 2019, Epic Games showcased a gorgeous ray tracing demo titled "Troll". In addition, games from the company's portfolio should become part of the regular, free offers in the store.

Epic also announced that Ubisoft will place several titles in the Epic Store. It's important to remember that outside of indie studios, publishers decide these moves-505 Games decided for Remedy, and Private Division (Take-Two) decided for Obsidian.

One of the great things about GDC is that it lets us in on some very exciting development tech that will inevitably end up in the games we play.

"Our goal is not to build another walled garden", Epic Games Store Head Steve Allison said on stage. That means it's free to bring the game to any platforms, though it's not known who would be publishing the title on PC.
