Epic Games Store has launched: Massive Rival to Steam Revealed

‘Hades’ Is The Latest Isometric Action Game From Supergiant

That last title is the new project from Supergiant Games, and it's available in early access exclusively on the Epic Games Store.

Installation requires elevation but holds no surprises.

The store has been set up to rival the massive online Steam run by developer Valve that offers thousands of PC games. The Store supports email and password accounts, and accounts from the Playstation Network, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, Facebook, and Google at the time of writing. Definitely get on that even if you just install it and have no other plans for the Epic Store.

The store will also release one game for free every two weeks through 2019.

Darksiders III, a game with no shortages of flaws, will get added on December 14, along with Subnautica followed by Super Meat Boy at the end of the month.

Ever Baby Born Following A Uterus Transplant From A Deceased Donor
The Journal cites 10 previous cases of failed uterus transplants from deceased donors, in the USA , the Czech Republic and Turkey. Previously, with live donors, doctors have waited at least a year following the transplant to begin trying for a pregnancy.

"As a developer ourselves, we have always wanted a platform with great economics that connects us directly with our players", said Epic Games founder and CEO, Tim Sweeney in a prepared statement.

The Store has its own Mod Editors section that users can download to their devices, and a section for Unreal Engine which users can install as well.

Top players of the hugely popular Magic: The Gathering card game will soon be able to take each other on in two separate pro-leagues. CEO Tim Sweeney's tirade against Microsoft's UWP platform and the more recent Fortnite on Android drama has given the game developer and publisher a more "pro-developer" image.

Services on PS4 and Xbox One as well as Twitch and EA's Access all dole out games for the price of a regular subscription, but Epic is offering their freebies without any monthly subscription fee.

Of course, Epic Games' store has a long way to catch up with Steam's catalog. The Pathless, the new game from the makers of Abzu, is so far only listed for Epic.
