Yes, Epic is trying to up their game by giving developers a larger cut of the profits than Steam so will be interesting to see where this ends up.

Although I love competition that drives innovation and lower prices, I really like having limited amount of game clients for my games.  Already have Steam, Origin, Battle.Net, UBISoft, and a handful of individual games that has their own...now this will be another.  Maybe not a big deal and a good thing in the end....we'll see.

My Son's friends call Fortnite "cancer" and refuse to get this client. But another friend pointed out that they are too young to know the original Unreal games by the same company.

I was reading on Reddit yesterday that apparently the client signs you up to mailing lists by default because the window doesn't show enough text to reveal the opt-out box.  This is probably a violation of GDPR.

Non surprise there. I had one of my friends last night calling me a traitor as he thinks that by me joining epic games that steam may die losing him his library of games.

Glad I saw this. It has to be one of the best games I've played so far.
