Epic set to launch a competitor to Steam

The next ‘Steam Killer’?

PC

Today Epic Games have announced they will open their own rival to Steam and it will be called the Epic Games Store.

They say they will give developers 88% of the revenue their game generate, which is much higher than the 70% Steam currently does.

It will open with a mix of PC and Max titles and will eventually have title across more platforms over the next year. It will waiver royalties from games that use their own Unreal Engine.

We’ve seen many ‘Steam Killers’ attempt to get their own market share over the year, but none have managed to topple the might distribution service, could Epic be the ones? Only time will tell…
