Currently, the Epic Games Store is the main trading platform for computer games. The store is a real attempt to break the dominance of Steam, which became possible only after the unprecedented success of Fortnite gave the creators of Epic Games enough money and influence to try to implement such an ambitious trick. The name of the company itself evokes expectations. The store could have become the basis for exciting and necessary competition in this field, but right now it is too simple to be the best PC game store.

Pros and Cons

  • Earnings model for developers (a 70% share of all sales after deducting transaction fees),
  • Thorough game selection (only products of the highest quality are available in the store, and developers can be sure that their game will be seen by numerous potential customers),
  • Cross-platform support (Epic Games Store supports Microsoft Windows, macOS, and Linux, which is one of the company's main advantages),
  • Free use of the Unreal Engine 4 game engine for developers,
  • Cloud saves (the store offers cloud saving, which allows players to save their progress in the game and continue from where they left off on another device).
  • Lack of features (unlike other digital distribution platforms, the store does not offer user reviews, wishlists, or a shopping cart, making it harder for players to find new products and developers to sell them);
  • Timed exclusive deals (deals prohibit the release of certain products on other digital distribution platforms for a certain period of time, usually around six months);
  • Permanent exclusive deals (deals prevent the release of a game on another platform);
  • Potential impact on the video game industry (the store's exclusive deals and revenue distribution model can lead to increased consolidation among publishers and reduced competition).
