    Starter access is free to play, Standard + Club access are on a somewhat complicated subscription model.
    Restricting the advanced map editor to subscription seems a bit short sighted to me.

    72 free games so far, so keep it up Epic, only another 771 games to go and i might actually have to think about leaving steam and jumping onto your digital store after all. lol

    How can you give out "free copies" of "free to play" game? Am I missing something?

    Typically the game of the week becomes available at 11 am eastern US time. A game called Hue is listed.
    Trackmania is available now. maybe a bonus?

    Yea I was actually looking forward to Conan Exiles, it appears to have completely disappeared from store of any indication of it being a free release

    Epic Store has been super generous, but to be honest, the greatest games they have given I had already played, like the Batman trilogy (though Arkham City was boring so I played only the beginning). So far, I have bought two games and played one free game, which was Bad North, surpisingly fun simple RTS game with pleasing graphics. Conan Exiles was one I actually waited for since my friend plays it, but unfortunately this one time I was hyped to save money it didn't come :(. Well, nothing too bad, but makes you wonder is the launcher still even remotely profitable due to so few games you actually want to buy. I understand giving older games for free today is common business for every game store, so it might be this whole giveaway thing is not in the end that expensive for Epic. I certainly hope so, since I'm all for competition and would support Epic Store more if they had the games I want. I have even helped them by emailing some developers to get their game on there, but nothing has happened. I certainly hope Resident Evil 8 will be there. I really don't get why all publishers don't try to benefit from this new cheaper store.

    Like @WhiteLightning told, I grabbed this Trackmania Remake from Uplay actually. Now that I checked the Epic Store, upcoming releases there that I personally could buy are Iron Harvest and maybe Bugsnax. Nice to see the catalog getting better.
