Will you consider the Epic Game Store your new default library?

View Results
Never, I'll stick to Steam thank you very much
Maybe, if I get enough freebies to get me started
Sure, if they will let me link my Steam profile to bootstrap my collection
Why not another store indeed, if the prices are right

The Escapist 2 removed wihtout any notice from Epic... Thats a really nice community treatment we got there.

I'm loving the free games but damn that launcher is one clusterfuck of glitches

It constantly fails to load first page or store. It gets stuck on load up when starting the launcher and keeps on showing "getting launcher ready" and I have to restart it. Every 4th time it logs me out and asks me for verification because apparently I am using different "machine" every time. Now it says I have to reset my password from the email they have sent me.... which havent arrived. Verification is glitchy as well, half the times it doesnt recognize it and I have to restart the launcher, restart the verification program and go at it again.

Cant be sure whether its the launchers problem or something incompatible on my end.. but still feels unacceptable for a launcher. Feels like work of unmotivated depressed IT intern not a company thats flushed with money.

I don't wanna be "defending" Epic, but I have had none of the problems you mentioned while using it since the free games started. Might be specific to something on your system

It used to happen to me. If the launcher frozes, try to not force close it or it will ask you for verification (can't remember how but fixed it like a year ago or so). About the verification email, yeah it always take a while to be sent, so that's normal.

Hm, makes sense.. Thats probably what causes it.. still, when it freezes not much to do then to restart it (When I last left it hoping it will eventually load, it didnt)

Might be time to clear the cache as Gainja suggested and/or reinstalling launcher.. Might be time to clean up my PC as well and reinstall OS.. Who knows where the problems are happening with it

About running games without opening the launcher - I think, that is only specific to certain games.. The ones I play automatically open the launcher as well when running the game. Although the launcher works fine when it opens automatically with the game. I only open the launcher itself when it's time for redeeming the free games, so maybe the servers are loaded at those times which could be causing problems with loading for me

so dont reinstall it . the problem is kinda appears when your change your ip it happens when you use a proxy so when your ip changes application need to verify its you and this problem never happens to me and verifications are so easy as im using here its a one time use and thats it ,it dosent require email verifications neither its just a captcha and if you used two-step verifications these things should not happen if !! you dont use proxy dissconections brings this problem too but as for the servers theire not loaded im pretty sure cause i see this happen only one time when they gave GTA V away and i think your problem lies another place do these things ive said and if your problem remains tell me more

Try clearing your cache, it has helped me :)

Clear your launcher’s web cache

  • Exit the Epic Games Launcher by right-clicking on the system tray icon in the bottom-right corner, and then click Exit.
  • Press Windows key + R and type “%localappdata%” to open a File Explorer window.
  • Open the Epic Games Launcher folder.
  • Open the Saved folder.
  • Click the webcache folder, and then delete it.
  • Restart your computer and start the Epic Games Launcher.

I also found out that certain anti-virus/web protection software such as Avira or Kaspersky interferes with the Epic Store, causing it to not be able to load certain parts of pages. A temporary exception for epicgames.com / .epicgames.com / .unrealengine.com might show if this is the case.

Really Happy for conan exiles , i would be much happier if they give witcher 3 or red dead away though it seems impossible

I do not understand, why are they launching a brand new game as free for first 24 hours? Can anyone explain the strategy behind this?

because if they want to do that for a week . no one will ever buy it on other platforms other than those who are comitted to steam ..
who leaves a free game and pays for it on steam ??! sense !

most of the ppl will lose the game during this 1 day . i think your talking about total war ?

It's the Total War franchise's 20th Bday so they thought it would be a kool idea to do a 1 day promo for the game.

If you consider that reason alone, I believe giving an older total war game for free wouldn't be a bad idea. But anyways, happy to get a latest game for free.

That's the actual reason they stated they were doing it. Epic also pays them for each copy that is given so the turnout for this over an older game which a good amount of people already have will probably be much higher.

That is no doubt where some money will be recoup'd. I find if I get a free base game and the DLC is neat, I'm willing to spend some money on it.

You basically answer your own question: this seems such an insane move, but actually is a great way to spread awareness for the franchise far and wide, and get new players involved who otherwise would not buy this kind of game.

I don't think they are gonna be the ones giving away the Witcher (I'm assuming you mean the Witcher 3), after all it was GOG that gave away the Witcher 1 and 2 because GOG is owned by CD Projekt. They even gave a free copy to the people that already own the game in some other platform.

yeah but as you know epic buys those games from devs and its not impossible to give it away .. i think they just don give good games away .like this conan exiles its good for some including me but they have addiction of removing good games on the last day ... did that to many times only god knows why

It's free and they have given plenty of good games. Sure, they've had to delay the promotions sometimes but they eventually show up at some point down the line.
I just think that the Witcher is more likely to show up for free at GOG. It's kinda cheap in steam right now anyway tho, if you really want it.

I'm really curios what's going on in the background...
People on twitter are still mad about the delay of Escapists 2 and now the next one already?
They also tweeted today that the new Trackmania has been temporary delayed on EGS for some reason. At least people can play it on Uplay at the moment.

Are they working on some big store update that leads to those issues or do they just not really care? ( ̄ω ̄;)

i dont think so why do they removed only conan exlies ? the other one is still there i know its free and we have no right to say something but ....some just looked into it and for me espcially it really mattered wish they give it back again

It will probably just be delayed :)
I just took a quick look in the conan steam announcements and it seems like the latest patches broke something and people have login issues or something...so that might be the reason why they removed it. Would not be the greatest time to let thousands of new people into the game xD

About Conan I call that lack of professionalism.... about those issues one of the reasons there are so many problems with their platform is that it's not at all automated every change you see needs a person behind a screen to be made (for example launch a game), i'm not being a hater here but their plataform has no good foundations, was done in a hurry and everyone can see that, also the more games they add the more problems will appear, they will have to rebuild from the ground up the plataform at some point otherwise it will be unusable in the future

Sorry for getting your hopes up (。╯︵╰。)

The Epic Games Store team has decided that Conan Exiles will not be free, but will be available for purchase on the store at a later date.

Phew, almost broke my "add every epic free game" streak.

Somehow when I redeemed stranger things and aer at the beginning of the GA, it only registered aer...only noticed it today, I knew it happens sometimes but I seldom double check...guess I will do it now for every addition, don't want to break my streak as I am interested to see how large the library will get :)

I am curious also to see how many games i can get. But at the beggining it was like a joke ow it is quite an impressive library of games!!!

I was too lazy to do it for every redeem, but I will start to double-check as well xD

The library grew so nicely that it feels like a shame to miss even one of the GAs now, quite a few solid titles in there...I do, however, struggle to remember that I already have a particular game on epic sometimes...was searching for FTL because of the latest bundle but later remembered it's been given out on epic (as an example). #firstworldproblems

i made a Excel file for that regrouping Steam and others platforms.
I heard off a tool doing that fogot the name but not sure to add another management to all that :D

Perhaps you were thinking of GOG 2.0?

If it was this, I can say that it's definitely a convenient tool, all I had to do was connect the other platforms to it (login) and it automatically detected my library and added all the games from the different platforms and also allows you to sort them in various ways (ie. by platform etc) and it will continue to update automatically as I add more games in other libraries...

BUT...I rely on steam app to receive group notifications etc :x so I still use steam the most...sometimes, when I'm looking for a game I might open gog to check xD

The game is having some pretty bad stability issues and that's more than likely the reason it was pulled.

Can someone check to confirm if Totally Accurate Battle Simulator (TABS) is still in your epic library? I got it when it was free and now it is gone without notice.

Thanks! Their wording is kinda funny though... In our case it's not a launching issue...
The game does not exist in the library, therefore there's nothing to launch... lol

Odd. The website still shows it as "owned" for me, and it is also under Payment History in my account. Furthermore, the launcher allows me to install & it downloads...
