    Thanks for the heads up Hilbert. Free is always good in my book

    Great. I'm really looking forward to getting Observer for free next week. Was in my Steam wish list for ages, lol.

    Make sure to take the other two addons for Surviving Mars, one is permanently free but second only for a limited time.

    Haha, if I could even get their dodgy Epic Launcher to install in the first place, instead of failing and rolling back during the directX part of the install, I may have bothered claiming it, as things stand, i'll not bother.

    So many free games. At this rate, my Epic games library will soon rival my Steam library (which I guess is the point).

    Not sure what EGS is, but when its UI is active, it eats ~40% of my CPU. When I was clicking this "order", it was using it 100%.
    I was checking it in task manager as I have temperature shown on MB and fans started to spin fast.

    Closing its window => 0%. Starting it again 40%.

    I am adding their nice free games. But outside of adding them, I am not currently using their launcher and do not play those games.

    I'm pretty sure EGS is Chromium based as most are now.

    So what I should say is this, please don't make this EGS bad launcher, Epic bad reeeeee

    Thanks for the heads up HH. Saw this back on Steam around... oh a year or so ago, thought about it but reading the reviews seemed to suggest it was a bit buggy and in need of some patching but you know what free is all kinds of the right price so I am getting this.

    You had me scared with this. I use Uplay, Origin, Battlenet and Steam. I have never used Epic game launcher. But I've been wanting this game so I bit the bullet. I don't know what the problem is that you are having, but luckily I don't experience that. The Epic launcher is sitting there at 0% cpu usage. With Steam, Battlenet and Epic launcher running and several tabs in Chrome open and file explorer open I am sitting at 5-6% cpu usage right now. Most of that is file explorer and chrome it seems.

    I came same conclusion sadly, I did love simcity stuff back on the day, but I also think back in then simcity was sprites game and I think that was why i loved it so much. some types of games just dont belong in 3D. atlest to me it kind ruins the feel of certain types games

    but hey the game made me install Epics launcher for first time, then again install on my uncles pc and my personal pc, epic launcher still not touched my pc.

    could be AMD thing I didnt noticed any such thing we both have Nvidia he has AMD could be Epic thing too who knows.
