A new GamesBeat event is around the corner! Learn more about what comes next.
The Epic Games Store is celebrating its first Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) since its December launch by adding 15 games to its digital shelves — including heavy hitters like Cyberpunk 2077. Epic made the news during the PC Gaming Show today.
Epic is also extending its “free game every week” promotion through the end of 2019. Those who use the store will get a new PC game each week. This weeks’ game is Kingdom: New Lands from Raw Fury, and you can get it for no additional cost until June 13. The next free game is Enter the Gungeon, Enter the Roll’s dungeon crawler that’s full of guns and silliness.
The Epic Games Store gives developers a bigger revenue share of every sale — 88% — than Steam does (70%). Valve’s digital storefront has long dominated gaming, and Epic is joining Discord and Itch.io as alternatives to Steam’s ubiquity.
I’m keen on a few games. The one that stands out is Griftlands from Klei Entertainment. It’s an RPG in which everything is negotiable — money, loyalty, and morality.
Three top investment pros open up about what it takes to get your video game funded.
