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

Nice freebies, already have the Arkham games but not the Lego ones.
Does anybody knows if Arkham Knight includes the DLCs or if is just the base game? I'm missing most DLC on steam for that one so that would be an excuse to install the epic version instead if I ever get around to playing it again.

From PCGamer: "You can grab the Batman games here on the Epic Games Store up until September 26th. It's worth noting that—while Arkham Asylum and Arkham City are the GOTY editions bundling all DLC—Arkham Knight's DLC is not only not in the bundle, but also not available through the Epic Games Store."

Aw, that's quite the oversight on their part, and kinda odd for them to not even offer the DLC.
Welp no reason to ever install that version over the steam one then, thanks for the info :)

If you've had steam for that long then you certainly saw Team Fortress 2 go free.

If you missed everything else then you've not really being paying attention as there's been hundreds of games be free in that time, I mean Dirt was free about a week ago....L4D2 was free for like two weeks in 2011 or something.

Yep, this^
I can't quite give exact numbers (cos I'm feeling lazy) but in the 6 years I've been on steam I got at least a couple dozen freebies straight from the store and a few were AAA titles.

sorry but tf2 is not even close to Batman/torchlight/alan wake etc add to this the numbers...1 to 2 games per week!
Also keep in mind that the games WASn't from steam!it was from the publishers and developers of the games....DON't confuss this...dirt was from codemasters not Steam...

Ehh... sure but the way you phrased your comment it sounds like you're not talking about the freebies comming from valve themselves but rather about getting free games at all on steam and that's simply not acurate. Yes, most promotional free stuff on steam was given away by publishers or devs but there actually were games given away directly through steam instead of using a 3rd party site.
Also as the other guy said L4D2 was free for a limited time and that came from valve.
I don't critisize the fact that epic is giving away games by paying for them themselves, that's really nice (specially compared to their other less consumer friendly strategies to capture a piece of the market). But again, your comment was innacurate.

I mean Axel beat me to it but your comment was nothing to do with quality, you said you never got any freebies from steam which just wasn't true.

Team Fortress 2 at the time was one of the biggest titles on steam for play time and popularity. L4D2 is perhaps one of the best co-op games ever made.

Add to that the plethora of games they've given away for free over the years which dwarves Epic.

Its good Epic are doing this, but it certainly won't get me to move to their store. Good for them and im glad people are getting these new games, for me though Epic store was DOA.

You can see your gametime.Click on the gear of a game when it's installed in your library and it says " You've Played X" at the bottom of the list.

I bought every single one of them on Steam and console and they're worth every single penny. For redundancy purposes, I'm glad I now have them on another platform as well. Epic hits hard this time around with an amazing collection of great games for the incredible price of free. Kudos.

For those that never played them, don't let them be another +6 to your library. Play them and you won't regret!

I just noticed they also added a search option for the library section which is a must have imo. Now, the search option combined with the list view makes their launcher actually usable.

So apparently, the Epic version received a few hours ago an update of 14 GB adding all the content from the Season Pass. I can't confirm it though, because I haven't downloaded the game yet. I read this in the Steam forums.

I've only claimed like 25% of these games I always forget. But I probably wouldn't play most of them ever or at least any time soon. So I could always buy it discounted on steam if need be.

Good catch, too bad Epic still doesn't have an option to sort by price or anything similar (at least they have a regular search now). Even on ITAD it doesn't show up.

To anyone interested: Auto Chess is the port of a free to play mobile game with loot boxes. Not trying to talk you out of it. Well, maybe.

What you mean with activate? I cant sadly install the Epic Launcher, my PC is sadly to old and very bad. But i got it trough the Browser and i got for both a receipt, instantly. I thought, its now in my Library or not?

Or where i can find then the Keys for them, so can or need to activate later in the Launcher?

Im little bit confused right now, sorry. :D

Don't worry, if they are in your payment history (click here) they are in your library, there is nothing else you need to do.
Ignore the word "activate" being used here, Axelflox is just using it instead of the words bought, purchased, acquired, obtained etc.

I'm still wondering if taking these free games directly helps Epic, whether through their direct finances or by giving them more clout when buying up more exclusives. Anyone have any concrete information one way or the other?

Epic pays the same percentage as if it were a real sale. So it costs Epic money.

Dev/publisher will see it as a sale and happily take home the money. But I wonder what percentage of claimants actually even install or play the free games.
