Epic Games is bringing their own gaming storefront to Android

Epic Games’ store is now open promises a free title every fortnight ‘Hades’ Is The Latest Isometric Action Game From Supergiant
Sandy Mccarthy | 08 December, 2018, 07:02

THQ Nordic's Darksiders III (already out on Steam) is on the way, and Supergiant Games' hack-and-slashy Hades is available in early access.

It appears that the Store is only available for Windows for now; the download link offers a Windows version when you click on it.

If they can persuade those triple-A publishers who haven't yet begun publishing PC titles on their own stores, like Electronic Arts, Activision Blizzard, Ubisoft and Microsoft, then the outlook for Steam may be worse than anyone could have imagined just a short while ago. And if they're using Epic Games' Unreal Engine, they can even waive the usual 5% royalty Epic requires them to pay. The first two games slated to be free on the Epic Games Store are Subnautica and Super Meat Boy from December 14 to December 27 and December 28 to January 10 respectively. At its most popular, about 8 million people were playing the game at one time.

All three are new games.

To be clear, these are games you'd normally have to pay for that Epic is giving away free.

Aston's EV conversion preserves heritage (and the planet)
Aston Martin will use the same battery electric technology that will soon appear in their first all-electric model, the Rapide E. While the vehicle is just a concept, Aston Martin Works will begin offering heritage EV conversions in the near future.

What's more is, it will be available to "additional games and other open platforms throughout 2019".

A friends system is supported, however. "More importantly, we think what we can build while taking your feedback into account will be much better than if we were to work in relative secrecy until it was done". This is not too dissimilar to EA making select games free on its Origin store.

Epic Games has enough pull thanks to Fortnite being the game right now.

Now You: Will you install the Epic Games Store on your devices? Epic employee Sergey Gaylonkin has stated that his time gathering data as SteamSpy has proven useful in designing the store, enabling the company to eventually "give developers way more information about their games than SteamSpy ever could".
