    Yeah, this one didn't look that good to begin with.
    A L4D style zombie game... based off another media property... we've never seen that go bad before. (Walking Dead)


    And, the developers trying to justify using Epic. "It saves us and players, we made it 5 dollars cheaper on Epic"
    I'm willing to bet, a ton of players would rather pay that extra five bucks.

    Quite honestly, I wouldn't get this even for 20 Euro cheaper. It doesn't really look special. Just another zombie game.

    How a lot of these companies must be f*cking kicking themselves for getting into bed with Epic (all these deals inked before the Metro fiasco).

    No doubt said deals are written in ironclad 'legalese' because nobody has jumped ship yet and I can't imagine that's for a lack of wanting to.

    Epic's lousy store is a lose/lose proposition and publishers and developers alike need to steer well clear of it.

    Competition and innovation are great and competent alternatives to Steam are most welcome, paying off publishers, poaching games from other platforms and offering what is undeniably one of the most ridiculously bad storefront/launchers in the industry, in lieu of the aforementioned, is not.

    I can't wait for this game. I'm also going to give Epic's store the benefit of the doubt. It's been mentioned in other threads on here, but I'll mention it again. Steam was a POS when it first launched all those years ago. Granted, technology has moved on since then but...... Steam needs some competition. I think Epic's store will evolve and eventually do well. Epic obviously have cash to splash now that Fortnite is a persistent cash generator for them. Time will tell.

    Not that I want to start this discussion all over again but this is a non argument.

    Steam came from a place where there was no Steam, ergo they pioneered the technology.

    The EGS has no such excuse for being such a dysfunctional, lacklustre, featureless and consumer unfriendly bag of dogsh!t.

    Again, as you said, this has been mentioned (AKA done to death) in other threads, but context is important, and that comparison (which has also been made before) is completely flawed.

    It's not like Steam existed in a vacuum even back then. Here's this bad boy that once competed with steam :p

    Oh gawd, I remember those guys, I had so many issues with them.

    We'll just have to content ourselves in the knowledge that Steam chose a different direction as I might have given up on digital distribution altogether if that had continued any longer than it had done.

    Painful!

    I'm afraid you're making things up man. For Ubisoft to make the jump, and the large success of Division 2 preorders there's strong arguments against what you hint at.

    Said it before but i'm 100% behind the Epic Store. Exclusivity deal don't bother me at all, and i find it rather fair game if you're trying to compete with Steam and its 20 years user base.

    Allright, ended up watching 3 videos on The Division 2 sales and pre orders, wasted 20minutes lol. More than any hazardous interpretation, this quote from Ubisoft CEO says it all:
    "With this deal, we saw an opportunity to increase player exposure to our own store while at the same time supporting a partner that greatly values our games and provides better terms. Early indications are supportive, as PC pre-orders are higher than for the first Division, and pre-orders on the Ubisoft store are six times higher. We believe this deal is a long-term positive for Ubisoft."

    Saying Ubisoft is lying, is factually wrong? They made the Epic deal to support Epic and promote Uplay, they did just that by increasing traffic on Uplay with way larger preorder on Uplay that they had before (x6time). If in total Division 2 preorders amount to more that Division 1, it means Steam lost a sick amount of money by losing Division 2, and Ubisoft sold the game mostly on his proprietary launcher.

    Point being, i wish the Epic store is a success. Brings more revenue to people working on the actual game, can only be good for everyone.
    An insane amount of Indie studio have people working on minimum wage, and some extra % income can mean the difference between life and death for those.

    @XenthorX

    No, you are incredibly short sighted and your point of view is sadly born of your own potential monetary gain with no regard for the much larger and potentially very destructive implications of this kind of reckless behaviour.

    Ubisoft tried to imply that switching to the Epic store had dramatically increased their sales through the Epic store, don't try and twist it to suit your argument, that dog won't hunt.

    If consumers don't buy things, the percentage a developer receives, whether it be 8% or 80%, becomes totally irrelevant as no money at all is just that.

    The Epic store is garbage, people don't like it and they are voting with their money, feel free to stand fast in the wheelhouse of that sinking ship as it slips beneath the waves if that makes you happy, it is your prerogative after all.

    People don't like being forced to do things they don't want to do, it is a fairly universal human trait, continuously inconveniencing your customers is not going to make them want to buy things from you, it will inevitably have the opposite effect.

    Steam's monopoly is the most benign and weakest monopoly I've ever seen. Want a steam copy of The Witcher 3, GTA5, or Assassin's Creed Odyssey? There's only one way to do that and if people choose to buy from Steam, it speaks more of the perceived value and trustworthiness of their store than any strong arming from Valve. If Rage2 or Doom E show up with bethnet links on steam, the same story will be repeated. I never cared for Fortnite's numbers until Sweeney decided on being a pain in the ass but I'm glad Apex pushed them aside. The same guy who used to spread conspiracy theories about the MS store.

    If anyone gives a crap about this game, just know that you can play Ashen with other people who didn't buy the game from the epic store *wink wink*
