With platforms like Origin, UPlay and massive Steam, Epic Games has to find ways to get users to the platform. One is to offer games weekly, a habit that the store has maintained since last year. As Epic Games reports, this system will also be maintained in 2020.
So whenever Epic Games offers a game, just add it to the library and the title will be yours forever. It is not mandatory that you install it right away, it will only be available in your account so you can install and play at any time.
This is a great way to get users in, though it’s not a way to guarantee in-store purchases. Epic Games owns the battle royale Fortnite, one of the most profitable games ever. This way, Epic Games has all the ingredients for success.
Epic Games Store Already Has Over 100 Million Customers
Epic Games Store currently has 108 million customers, according to the latest numbers shared by the company. The number of customers totaled $ 680 million in purchases. So Epic Games still has a long way to go compared to Steam but it seems to be on the right track.
In the future, Epic Games aims to look even more like Steam. In early 2019, the store made a publication stating that it would begin deploying cloud-recorded games, as well as achievements, to give small rewards to players outside games.
So in future Epic Games may look more like Steam, following in the footsteps of the most popular game store on the planet, owned by Valve.
