Epic Games is absolutely on fire lately. Fortnite is showing no signs of slowing down, and today, the company revealed more than a dozen games from Deep Silver, Ubisoft, and Take-Two Interactive that will be coming to the Epic Games Store. Ubisoft announced that it is expanding its partnership with the company to begin additional titles from its back catalog to the free games program. This means that users will be able to play a number of acclaimed experiences for free through the Epic Games Store.
That's not all though, Take-Two will bring The Outer Worlds from Microsoft's Obsidian Entertainment and Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey from Panache Digital Games to the Epic Games Store. The Outer Worlds will also launch on the Microsoft Store at the same time and is expected to hit Steam a year later. However, the biggest news of the day is still ahead. Quantic Dream recently expressed interest in going multi-platform, and the team is bringing Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls, and Detroit: Become Human to PC for the first time, exclusively to the store.
Epic Games has even more partnerships in the pipeline. Some of the other highly-anticipated exclusives are listed below.
- The Cycle
- Industries of Titan
- Journey to the Savage Planet
- Phoenix Point
- The Sinking City
- Solar Ash
Epic Games also revealed that Deep Silver's Metro Exodus sold more than 2.5 times as many copies in its first few weeks on the Epic Games Store in comparison to the previous franchise release Metro: Last Light on Steam over the same period of time. In addition, both Subnautica from Unknown Worlds Entertainment and Slime Rancher from Monomi Park each exceeded 4.5 million downloads in their two-week runs as free offerings.
