Free Games To Help Launch Fortnite Dev's New Steam Competitor Store

This is pretty epic.


Epic teased that it would detail more about its new Epic Games Store during The Game Awards, and during the event it came out with its proverbial guns blazing. The store launched during the award show, alongside word that it would be giving away free games on a regular basis.

As spotted on the storefront upon launch, its first two offerings are Subnautica and Super Meat Boy. A thumbnail points out that it will be swapping out the free game every two weeks through its partnerships with publishers. Subnautica will be available from December 14-27, while Super Meat Boy will follow from December 28 - January 10.
