Default THE Epic Games Store Thread

As developers ourselves, we wanted two things: a store with fair economics, and a direct relationship with players. And we've heard that many of you want this too!

Soon we'll launch the Epic Games store, and begin a long journey to advance the cause of all developers. The store will launch with a hand-curated set of games on PC and Mac, then it will open up more broadly to other games and to Android and other open platforms throughout 2019.

The Epic Games store will operate on the following principles:

All Developers Earn 88%
Developers receive 88% of revenue. There are no tiers or thresholds. Epic takes 12%. And if you’re using Unreal Engine, Epic will cover the 5% engine royalty for sales on the Epic Games store, out of Epic’s 12%.

https://www.unrealengine.com/en-US/b...ic-games-store

Watch out Steam!

Oh boy, now I will have seven launchers when I start up my PC? This is getting ridiculous.

I'm sure there is lots of good in this announcement, but the way all these games are tied to each platform with profiles, launchers, friends, etc. If they were literally just game shops, I wouldn't care. Makes things frustrating for consumers.

My 'yet another launcher' groan is tempered by how pro-developer this model is. Steam takes 30% and offers **** for discoverability, only ok community tools, no external content promotion, and bare-bones tagging and search features... only taking a 12% cut is huge on its own and will probably draw a massive library in the opening few months, but specifically addressing community development/communicating with users and cross promotion with existing (youtube, twitch, etc.) platforms seems like important features missing from Steam.




So at least from that perspective, if it's not obtrusive (ahem, uplay), is functional (I'm looking at you windows store), and is actually functioning online most of the time (origin...), I'd probably prefer this platform to Steam, so I don't really mind it.




Perhaps the most interesting part will be how other services, especially Steam, react to it. Wonder if we'll just see a reduced distributor tax across the board and some improved integration and communication features. There's also the potential that a store with only a small cut removed will make starting or maintaining your own publisher's store so much less lucrative that it will help stem the tide of new launchers, but I guess we'll have to see.

I dont really want another launcher.

I also dont try and make a living on a digital store either so my thoughts about the situation are purely from a consumer perspective. I already have an epic account so Im assuming they will migrate those people over.

Considering fortnite is the biggest game in the world right now, (something like 200 million active users and 10mil concurrent players) - the epic client is probably already more widely installed than most of the other platforms you might already have on your system.

As someone said above, it's going to be interesting to see how the other platform's respond, 88% is a fair jump in the content creator's direction.

Those breakdowns for developers will be quite enticing. Give it a year or two and it might be worth using.

Hoo baby you're not kidding that jams a pickle right into the deal Valve just announced. Doubly so since Valve only enables that **** for developers/publishers who make 10's of millions and it screws most indie games out of a better cut. Triply so since it favors Unreal engine users.


Valve needs to slide on back to the (with)drawing board

Default Some Epic Store games are pushing back or scrapping Steam releases

"Satisfactory, one of the upcoming games you'll be able to buy on Epic's new store, will no longer be available on Steam, while two others—Rebel Galaxy Outlaw and Genesis Alpha One—will be timed exclusives for the Epic Store, the developers have announced.
First-person factory builder Satisfactory has removed its Steam page entirely, and Jace Varley from developer Coffee Stain Studios posted a video clarifying that the Epic Store will be "the only place you'll be able to get it". He promised to answer more questions in a future Q&A.
Space disaster sim Genesis Alpha One will also launch exclusively on the Epic Store in January, publisher Team17 said in a Steam post. The wording—"we can confirm that Genesis Alpha One will not be launching on Steam on January 29th 2019"—makes it sound like it will come to the platform at some point."

But yeah, Ubisoft said something as well.

But after looking at Epic Games history, they released UT3 in 2007 on the PC, then the next PC game was in 2011 with Bulletstorm, and then the next PC games was in December 2015 Shadow Complex Remastered. Since December 2015 all their games have been on the PC.

Here is my theory about what changed their tune towards PC gaming:
The use of their Engine and the business model around it. The costs for their engine is very affordable even for an indie developer, and it is a top tier game engine. Plus they had their creators market where creators were able to sell Unreal Engine assets to other creators. The numerous indie developers probably became lucrative for them.

And now they are having this new Epic store, where it entices the use of their engine even more, and the store really seems to be targeting the Indie/AA market.

Installed the client.

There's no search, sort, or list. The storefront is trash. When you click on a game it brings you to a 80% screen video, where the title of the game is dead center, obfuscating what little utility the video would have. They actually made it worse than Origin's store.

Well, dang these discounts. I bought Walking Dead Final Season as I've invested too much time to leave the story hanging.


Also took a gamble and bought John Wick Hex. Really unlike me to go for an unknown quantity but the price was very good and Bithell have never let me down yet.

Epic really wants to piss off the most people it can it seems.

Where’s all the dumbasses that were saying Epic store is “great for competition” and good for developers? All they’re doing is pigeonholing people into their store with money guarantees with no regard whatsoever for the consumer.

Idiots.

They did it the wrong way. They should have passed on some of the savings the devs got early on to the consumers. Then they would have thrived even with less features. Instead they said, "hold my beer while I throw $$$"

Idiots is right!

I don't think not passing through savings onto consumers was a mistake. The messaging at the start was very clear: they're passing savings onto developers. Gamers aren't the ones having trouble making ends meet from game to game because of profitability of games, that issue is an issue for developers. It's pretty standard in the industry that if your last game was a hit, that'll pay for the next one, and if it wasn't a hit, you're in trouble.

Passing savings onto developers so that they've got an easier time of it, especially in the AA and indie tiers, would've been a great message to keep spreading around.

The trouble was of course buying up exclusives, just before launch, against an avid Steam fan base. I don't think anything else has played such a big part in the negative attitude towards the Epic Store as that.
