So, it’s a relatively muted debut for the Epic Games Store and, in all honestly, a pretty uninspired lineup, especially considering a lot of them have no set release date. There are a few free games on theresuch as Subnauticaand an odd gem, particularly the gorgeous-looking The Pathless and the excellent Journey which will make its PC debut exclusively through Epic’s store, but both of those have no release date yet. Although the Epic Games Store has made headlines by giving 88% of all revenue to developers, I can’t help but think that Epic will have to do more to convince consumers to buy from their platform, but it’s early days yet.
