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.
The Game Awards also showed off a trailer for a new game from Supergiant called Hades. The end of the trailer revealed that it is available already in early access, exclusively through the Epic Games Store. A promotional trailer for the store itself also revealed Ashen and Hello Neighbor: Hide and Seek are available, along with several more upcoming games.
