Journey is headed to PC through Epic Games' new storefront

Journey is headed to PC through Epic Games' new storefront

Free stuff isn't a new thing on fledgling storefronts, as EA constantly gives away games on Origin.

And if you're not quite ready to drop money on a new gaming platform, Epic Games has you covered.

Epic Games had teased that they would be announcing something big at The Game Awards with Geoff Keighley telling players to "keep your game close".

Safe to say, the company is referring to side loading the Epic Games Store on Android just like how Fortnite is playable on Google's OS.

The store will also release one game for free every two weeks through 2019. With Hades, we knew we really wanted to create a game we could develop in partnership with the community, and from talking to the folks at Epic, we realized their store would be the ideal place to conduct our latest experiment. Among them was one particular game that never saw the light of day on the PC, however that's about to change and that's because the PS3-exclusive game Journey is finally coming to the PC.

The first of those timed freebies will be Subnautica, which will be available from December 14 to December 27, followed by Super Meat Boy from December 28 to January 10.

But while that revenue split might draw more game creators to the store, right now it's extremely small and simplistic.

Moreover, several games dropped their Steam pages entirely to appear only on the Epic Games Store. Specifically, early adopters of the platform will be able to pick up new games like Ashen, Hello Neighbor: Hide and Seek and Hades, which is available through early access. "We think developing 'Hades" in Early Access is key to making it the best game it can be, which is our goal", it said.

Gaylonkin's extracurricular hobby as SteamSpy was praised by many, including indie developers, publications and general users alike.
