    A year has almost passed since Quantic Dream made the decision to bring their previously PlayStation exclusive games to the PC platform, through the Epic Games Store. In June, the exclusivity agreement with Epic will end, meaning all three games, Detroit: Become Human, Beyond: Two Souls, and Heavy Rain will all soon be able to release on Steam. All of the titles now have Steam pages, in anticipation of their imminent launch. We can expect to see the three of them launch on June 18th. Each of the games is available to wishlist on Steam, alongside a free demo to try the games out prior to their launch.

    Dropping in to comment before all of the "it should've been on Steam, we don't need more launchers" start coming. I'm glad they're on Steam even though I'm not gonna play any of them. The Epic Games Store is the only launcher I don't like, only because of the pop up notifications you get on the desktop when it runs. At least with Steam I don't have to see stuff like that. But I don't mind Origin, Glyph, or Battle.net. And I wouldn't mind Epic if it weren't for the stupid pop ups on the desktop.

    I just hate seeing all of the people saying they should be on Steam because everybody already uses Steam.

    Shows you how little I use it. I had it installed from when I tried Dauntless. That's not something that should be enabled by default though.

    You can already buy it from EGS then list it on your Steam as a non-Steam game. Besides, these games are all singleplayer experiences. So a lot of people will have just pirated them.

    I like EGS a lot. I root for it to succeed, I see it as the competition that Steam has been needing. It is good for the paying consumers.

    And after Steam, they will become available on Netflix.



    Because they are movies.

    What made me feel this way, to be true, is that they keep giving out absolute best blockbuster AAA games out for totally free on a regular basis. That is how they have won me over but Origin and others failed.

    The problem was when they forced people to use it through the exclusivity agreements, especially for games which were already announced for Steam and it’s ‘incomplete’/‘inferior’ state compared to other platforms e.g. lacking cloud saves, shopping basket, etc.

    Had they just launched and gave out the free games, discounts, etc. Chances are people wouldn’t have complained as much.

    Exactly, the purpose of competition is to drive innovation, and EGS does not do that. It's basically Steam from 2003 trying to compete with Steam 2020. Tim Sweeney has even flat out said that he doesn't think customers matter, only attracting developers with Fortnite money does.

    The more you look into him the less you'll like him. He did nothing but talk shit about PC gaming for the better part of a decade, during which time Steam was busy establishing itself and receiving a constant stream of updates. Now that he's decided he wants a big piece of that pie, all he can do is whine about Valve's "monopoly" despite the fact that he had multiple opportunities to cut into their market share way earlier.
