    Love it or hate it, the Epic Games Store is raking in the cash

    5 monthes ago - By TechRadar

    There haven't been many stores that have been met with such fervor and controversy as the Epic Games Store. But no matter how much the haters shout from the rooftops, the storefront continues to rake in the cash. The online game outlet brought in a mind-boggling $681 Million from PC gamers in 2019, according to an infographic sent out by Epic Games. We're guessing that's not as much money as Valve brought in through Steam (though a report from developer No More Robots does hint that Steam sales might be seeing a big decline).

  • Epic Games Store will continue free game giveaways all 2020

    5 monthes ago - By Rock, Paper, Shotgun

    Epic confirmed today that they plan to keep on giving away a full game for free every week on the Epic Games Store throughout 2020. Previously they'd only confirmed freebies through to the end of 2019, a year they ended with a blowout of daily freebies , though they did quietly kept going when this year started. Epic say over 200 million free games have been claimed so far. I've largely been using this to heap yet more games onto my backlog but Epic have said they pay developers for the freebies so hey, I'm glad if my idle stockpiling gets devs paid.

    Epic says its PC game store now has more than 100 million users

    5 monthes ago - By The Verge

    Epic has some new metrics for the Epic Game Store a little over a year after its launch. The Fortnite developer now says the store has amassed 108 million users, thanks in part to the software doubling as the official PC launcher for the hit battle royale game. That means it's on par with, and perhaps even larger than, Valve's competing Steam store, which had 90 million users as of January of last year. (Valve has yet to release a more recent stat.)
    But Epic says its PC game store is a success well beyond Fortnite , generating $680 million in revenue thus far. Of that...

  • Epic Announces Weekly Free Games Will Continue Through 2020

    5 monthes ago - By GameSpot

    Launched in December 2018, the Epic Games Store just wrapped up its first full year as a PC games website and launcher. To celebrate its first year in business, Epic promised it would give away a new free game every two weeks on its storefront, and about halfway through 2019, that turned into one or two free games every single week. While the program was meant to end in December, Epic announced on Tuesday it will continue its weekly free game program through 2020. In case you're unfamiliar: Epic's free games are available to anyone with an Epic Store account. After you add them to your...
