Epic Games Store now open, continues crusade against revenue sharing

Hades BRAND NEW Supergiant Games title available NOW on Epic Store

Installation requires elevation but holds no surprises.

Epic launched its fledgling marketplace last night, and anyone curious to see how the much discussed Steam competitor - which offers devs an 88 percent share of revenue - is shaping up can check it out right here.

All three are new games. Up first is underwater exploration title Subnautica, which will be available at no charge from December 14. Rebel Galaxy Outlaw will debut on Epic's store, with developers Double Damage Games saying it'll hit other stores "At some point, sure, but not for a while". Subnautica, an underwater survival game, is now $24.99 on Steam, but Epic Games will give away free copies from December 14th - 27th. At its most popular, about 8 million people were playing the game at one time. Game pages lack information about recent updates, supported game modes, or hardware other than minimum and recommended PC requirements.

A friends system is supported, however.

Gaylonkin's extracurricular hobby as SteamSpy was praised by many, including indie developers, publications and general users alike. Epic employee Sergey Gaylonkin has stated that his time gathering data as SteamSpy has proven useful in designing the store, enabling the company to eventually "give developers way more information about their games than SteamSpy ever could". Still, free games is always attractive and it will certainly increase sign-ups for the Store when the promotion starts. Among them was one particular game that never saw the light of day on the PC, however that's about to change and that's because the PS3-exclusive game Journey is finally coming to the PC.

While this selection is sure to grow, it's clear Epic Games store isn't going to be anything like Steam in the near future.
