Will you consider the Epic Game Store your new default library?
Half Life 3 ?
As an Epic exclusive!
And it's for touchscreens
Would force Epic Games to pay Valve for each copy claimed, so yeah! :-)
Championship Manager Season 01 / 02
The cat is out of the bag: according to Nibel's twitter, next game is GTA V!
well i for one am not at all bothered by that if true
I hear ya, they sold so many copies worldwide, is there a living person that doesn't already own a copy (copies?) of the game :D?
Me for example :)
me and don't really want to - might be the first epic game i pass on
I dont have it yet, because 95% of my library is bundled games.
If this turns out to be true I'm quit happy
I don't. I was actually saving money to buy it on Steam next sale lmao
I would prefer an Indie game I don't own yet but it's a great game, there's no denying it
I feel like a clown now. I have been selling my Steam inventory items the past 2 weeks to buy it on sale.
But if they give away GTA V for free, why are we living anymore? All those years spent idling SG wins for card profitz... just gone. The existential crisis is real.
Well, can you play Rockstar games without downloading Epic launcher, like ubisoft games? If that's true, I can see the reason. Rockstar wants to promote their store for GTA6 and get extra money from Epic, and also get new players, who wasn't willing to buy it, it's 7 years old game after all and most players have bought it for 2-3 times already :D The only downside is more cheaters, who will ruin game for these, who have bought it legally and less money from ingame purchases cuz people will make 3-4 accounts and transfer money to main one...
New link to store: https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/
New game live in 4 minutes.
Seens like they have problem with store page :)
An unexpected error has occurred.
Of course the shop crashed, people is entering like crazy lol
GTA 5 confirmed!
I bought it at day1 but I'm still happy because a lot of people will enjoy this masterpiece.
Can't wait for next week :Q
I never played any title of the series, I guess this is a good time to try it out xD
yup, can't handle the load :)
Steam have the same problem. 🤷
next week mystery game again? That is promising...
Next [Free] [Epic] Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (21/05 - 28/05)
That seems very unlikely seeing as Epic's DRM is quite strict and CD Projekt are quite Anti-DRM.
It's also on Steam...
Yeah, but from what I've heard, it's DRM-Free on Steam, so you can play it without having Steam open. But any game on Epic requires and internet connection and the launcher open to play.
That's lie, I played few games from epicgamesstore without luncher.
Actually no, you can play Epic games without needing the launcher to be opened
CDPR doesn't stand for anything. Geraldo3 is on origin/uplay even.
The Wircher 3 has been added to their database
Epic's DRM is strict?
Where did you get that from?
There are a lot of games that are DRM-Free on epic. That you can play even if you delete the Launcher complete.
You can even copy the games to another system without using the launcher at all.
For example: Observation, Superluminal, Axiom Verge, Hob...
The Publisher can decide if he wants to use no drm, the epic drm or something complete different (like uplay...)
That is exactly my observation as well. Especially the more Indie games do not require the launcher at all.
For some games I already own on Steam, the Epic version is actually a nice addition to the Family library, since Steam DRM sometimes prevents me and the kids playing different games at the same time (locking at the library level).
They are going to giveaway "SECRET" stuff for a ~month, until next sale
I'll just drop this https://cdn1.epicgames.com/14ee004dadc142faaaece5a6270fb628/offer/EGS_TheWitcher3WildHuntGameoftheYear_CDPROJEKTRED_S1-2560x1440-9c72e2ae9ef1e869a29b767b08f2753e.jpg
Does that mean they could givesaway the GOTY edition? They tend to give away the base game alone.
This says "premium", whatever that means, so maybe, we'll see in the next few weeks :)
It says premium on GTA V. I think Seibitsu was refering to Witcher 3 GOTY.
I'm surprised that Epic crashed because of a game 7 years ago rsrsrsrssr
7 year old game, but still one of the most popular games today.
Yes so I'm very surprised rsrss
lol epic game store is download.fuck i really want gta V
you have 1 week to get
That would be hilarious if they don't fix the servers for the whole week :))
I got redirected to mexican server ;p
Thank you Epic, this was great surprise! Who knows, maybe Witcher 3 next? Hmmmm
I don't think so, it"s on sale for 15€ on epic plus I think there's a coupon. I can't say for sure the coupon works on witcher because the site is barely working but it's unlikely they would heavily discount a game to give it for free the next week.
Do you know how much do you save with the coupon if it applies? The site cant load for me and i want to get witcher 3 so bad.
i believe i saw a banner saying 10$ coupon, so my guess is that there's some kind of a limitation to that like the last time coupons where a thing...
iirc, you need to have a price of 10$ after using thee coupon for it to work.... but don't pin me on that, since epic is totally screwed right now ;)
So i can propably get witcher 3 goty for 5. Damn i wasnt expecting to be such a great day. Thanks so much for the help:)
10$ on orders > 15$
Able to grab GTA in launcher and saw coupon (last time with coupon bought Metro Exodus Gold edition for like ~7$).
Right now got 403 error :)
I love when epic offers such coupons. Most games can be bough for almost nothing. Thank you so much as the site is stil down for me.
Use the Epic Launcher for me, I can manage it normally now
I need to confirm or deny this
Edit: seems I can confirm 80% is true
Is this Borderlands the compilation of all games except 3?
If it's true.
In these 4 games is missing because this promotion will last until the 14th, there will be 5 AAA games
but well, that's interesting. Where did you get that?
Got another source that says is the 1
Sale is from May 14 to June 11
So, on the 11th and Thursday and they forgot to put the game on that day, because the event ends on the 11th and probably Epic will not leave 1 week with "nothing", like the event ends with "nothing"
Starts May 14, today is thursday 1st game
May 21 2nd game
May 28 3rd game
June4 4th game
june 11 sale ends
after this point future is uncertain, we are only talking about the games they will probably give during the sale
Handsome collection doesn't have Borderlands 1 goty/enhanced too. Just borderlands 2 and pre sequal with all their dlcs except commander lilith and fight for scantuary
I can now definitely 100% confirm 25% of these games since the site is no longer crashing ;-)
Oh I found some arabs who had the info, may be civ V or VI and borderlands may be first or handsome collection, still we don't know exactly
One thing that makes me question the Civ6 thing, is that Civ5 was heavily reliant on Steamworks features and I'm fairly sure Civ6 is the same. I don't see how another storefront can put up the game without it linking back to Steam.
EDIT... On second thoughts, it's on Nintendo Switch as well isn't it? I suppose they do indeed have other methods for mp etc.
Grand Theft Auto V is free now
Welcome to the future.
free dlc for the escapists
Thank you and back to front page bump!
I'm not sure if this was already claimable before:
Delores: A Thimbleweed Park mini-adventure
These might have been:
The Messenger DLC Picnic Panic
Totally Accurate Battle Simulator DLC BUG DLC
Thank you! It might even be convenient for most people if you add those to the opening post. I only accidentally noticed them here and might just as well have missed them. Same goes for Ledyba's post of the escapist DLC above.
Yeah, they do extend the freebies although technically most of these are always free and not time-limited.
Last day to get GTA V, 11 hours left.
Booping for those who don't know about this yet
no need to "boop" 30 minutes after previous "boop"
No need to boop on someone elses boop just for booping 30 minutes after the last boop boop
Why are you all complaining about boops...?
I like boopies! :)
Thank you, thank you, almost forgot it! :)
I guess the leaks were true...
CiV is meh for me, Borderlands 1 would be better
Yeh ,same here but it's free so i won't say no :)
colour me un interested then
From the reddit link, pretty sweet games incoming.
"GTA V, Civilization VI, Borderlands Handsome Collection and Ark: Survival Evolved."
Already have the handsome collection, but beggars can`t be choosers so I am not gonna complain about some freebies.
its Civlization VI
Apparently the rumors are right haha
