You probably know Epic Games as the Fortnite creators; it is thanks to the success of this game that Epic Games have been able to create their own video game digital platforms called the Epic Games Launcher and the Epic Games Store, they can now challenge giants like Steam or GOG. The Epic Games Launcher we provide here for free will get you access to their store and all the extra features like saving games in the cloud, automatic game updates, and more.

Key features

  • More benefits for developers: Epic Games cares about people who create products using their tools. That's why they adapted their business model only to keep 12% of the products' revenues (against 30% for Steam), thus proposing a much fairer business model for both the customer and the developers.
  • Free games (and some exclusives): Some classics like Rocket League or Fortnite can only be found on Epic Games, but they also offer weekly a new free-to-play game that you can purchase for free.
  • Fast and light: Epic Games Launcher has been designed to run smoothly, have shorter loading times, and lower resource consumption. You will see the difference between Epic Games and other platforms.
  • Stay tuned: The main page lets you easily view all the latest video games and the news of the gaming communities. In addition, you will find much relevant information about updates, new offers, recommendations, and more.
  • Unreal Engine: Unreal Engine is one of the most featured, user-friendly, and powerful game engines in the industry. Using it, you will easily create any game or simulation. Moreover, you will find many tutorials and resources, as well as other users' projects that will help you master this crazy development environment.
  • Configuration: Epic Games has a dedicated settings menu. It will let you configure many parameters such as notifications, saving to the cloud, running at pc startup, changing the language, accessing technical support, or showing logs, among others.
