The Epic Games store is now live.

The Epic Games store is now open, featuring exciting games from other developers.  Our goal is to bring you access to great games, and give game developers a better deal: they receive 88% of all revenue from the Epic Games store, versus only 70% elsewhere.

The first games on the store are Hades by Supergiant Games, Ashen by Annapurna/A44, and Hello Neighbor: Hide and Seek by tinyBuild, and they’re available now!

Hades is the rogue-like dungeon crawler from the creators of Bastion and Transistor. It is available in early access, with updates to come every month until full release later in 2019.

Ashen is an action RPG about a wanderer in search of a home. You can forge relationships in the game, inviting other players to join your camp - they might just help you succeed.

Hello Neighbor: Hide and Seek is the prequel to Hello Neighbor, the stealth horror hit. Find out what happened right before the events of the main game.

The store will also feature one free game every two weeks throughout 2019. Epic is funding these free releases so you can experience the wide range of creative works that will be available. The first free game will be Subnautica, available from Dec 14th to Dec 27th, followed by Super Meatboy from Dec 28th to Jan 10th. Remember to check back in every two weeks for a preview of the next free game!

The Epic Games store will be growing throughout 2019, as it opens up more widely to other games and to other open platforms.
