The Outer Worlds, Control, and Phoenix Point Head Up Titles Coming to the Epic Games Store

The Outer Worlds, Control, and Phoenix Point Head Up Titles Coming to the Epic Games Store

Epic is trying to sweeten the pot and bring PC players over to its store.

It seems like Epic Games has been very busy since the initial launch of the Epic Games Store. Today during the "State of Unreal" keynote at the Game Developers Conference, Epic Games revealed a number of games that are coming to the store in the near future. The big push for the store is the 88 percent revenue share, versus the 70 percent share publishers and developers would get on Steam. That's very worthwhile, or developers were just waiting for some competition for Steam, because that are a host of games headed to the Epic Games Store.

Epic took some time to talk about the current successes of its store, like the recent launch of Ubisoft's The Division 2 exclusively on the Epic Games Store and Uplay. Subnautica and Slime Rancher each exceeded 4.5 million downloads during their free period on the store, and Metro: Exodus sold 2.5 times more than the previous release, Metro: Last Light, did on Steam.

The Division 2 is only the beginning of the partnership between Ubisoft and Epic. The pair of companies are extending their agreement to bring future Ubisoft games to the Epic Games Store. Certain titles from Ubisoft's back catalog will be coming to the free games program on the store, through there were no details as to which games.

Take-Two's Private Division label is also bringing Obsidian Entertainment's The Outer Worlds and Panache Digital Games' Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey to the Epic Games Store exclusively. The Outer Worlds is still coming to Steam, but the store page was altered to "2020" as a release window, pointing to a year-long exclusive.

The other exclusive Epic Games Store titles include:

  • Afterparty from Night School Studios
  • Control from Remedy Entertainment and 505 Games
  • The Cycle from YAGER
  • Dauntless from Phoenix Labs
  • Industries of Titan from Brace Yourself Games
  • Journey to the Savage Planet from Typhoon Studios and 505 Games
  • Kine from Chump Squad
  • Phoenix Point from Snapshot Games
  • The Sinking City from Frogwares and Bigben
  • Spellbreak from Proletariat Inc
  • Solar Ash Kingdom from Heart Machine and Annapurna Interactive

The Epic Games Store is still missing a host of features that players have come to love on Steam, most importantly cloud saves. Many of these features, including cloud saves, searching by genre or tag, user reviews, wishlists, mod support, achievements, and shopping carts are all on the Store's recently-released development roadmap.
