One of the features of Epic Games Store is its regular free games offering, and the company confirmed in a blog post that it will continue to offer games in 2022. Some of the games Epic has offered in the past were quite notable, including Control, Civilization VIand even the store-crashing Grand Theft Auto Vso it seems likely that the company will offer good gifts this year.
Epic also announced that its store had more than 194 million users, up 34 million year-over-year. Valve hasn’t released its own annual review numbers for Steam, so it’s hard to directly determine how well Epic competes, but the peak concurrent user comparison indicates that Epic still has some way to go. to catch up. Epic reported a peak of 13.2 million concurrent users, while Valve’s Steam stats page currently lists an all-time high of nearly 27 million users in the last 48 hours alone.
Following the long-awaited addition of a shopping cart in December, Epic also promises to continue adding features to the store. Expect updates to include profiles, give players the ability to prioritize downloads, and make improvements to the speed and performance of the Epic Games launcher.
