Continue the streak of free games at the Epic Games Store with the popular Borderlands A Very Beautiful Collection as a gift of the week. Another one of a long list of free video games with which the Fornite authors shop seeks to make a name for itself in the competitive PC market.

Also, your answers show a great division of opinions.
My trust is not earned with free games but with good platform servicesNarutoshippuden
“He is not winning it, he is ‘buying’ it, which is not the same thing,” says one of our readers, Venomized, with an opinion that not a few have shared. “Trust is earned: creating a complete and complex launcher such as that of Steam (we wait for a while to see if they do it), making policies favorable to users and not only to developer studios, not wanting to screw up those same users Potentials who use other launchers taking out the wallet to pay absurd exclusivities, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, offering aggressive and quite interesting discounts in their store, which is the only thing they are really doing well, “says Seonfiestero.
“My trust is not earned with free games, but with good services from the platform, adds NarutoShippuden.” If they had invested a tenth in improving the store instead of buying exclusives that nobody asked for, Epic Store would have put Steam in a good hurry. “He concludes. Another of our readers believes that far from positioning for or against one or the other platform, what should be done is criticize the bad and applaud the good.” I think we will continue to have lights and shadows with them during a long time as they try to solidify their market position, so I think it’s important to stop treating them as ‘good or bad’ and just criticize the measures that hurt us and applaud the ones that benefit us, “says Feelfist .
They offer for free the best they can offer: video gamesAstahroth
“Giving away games is very good and, of course, for many, that detail enters their eyes in a very legitimate way, but as a store (which is about stores, facing us as consumers, not anything else) I continue to value a lot more to Steam for being a much more complete store, with immense support and with a variety of parameters for all tastes and colors, “says TaMTaMGO , referring to another problem that many of you have discussed: the lack of options and services in the Epic Games store.
Other readers have applauded the “aggressive strategy” of the store “if they seek to become something more than another totally secondary launcher […] They offer for free the best they can offer in this sector of video games that are nothing else other than that, video games, “says Astahroth , who also stresses that they are not little-known games, but” great productions. ” In this sense, another of our users has highlighted that to date, he has obtained “more than 60 games, many of them quality, free at the Epic Store”, extolling the positive things that the company that gave life to the Gears of War series has done over the years.
I still have the ugly feeling that they’re a wolf in sheep’s clothingRaiku85
Finally, Raiku85 assures us that he does not trust the store. “I am just thinking about how they have vetoed games that rejected their offer and my guts are churning. A lot of populism with which they care about the developer until he does not go through his hoop. Small pieces. I like some movements that They are adopting, “he adds,” but I still have the ugly feeling that they are a wolf in sheep’s clothing . Time will end up putting them in their place. “
Some large companies such as Paradox have already warned long ago that competition from the Steam and Epic Games Store on PC will continue in 2020 and will be positive. On the other hand, the Fortnite authors’ store has received some new functions in recent times, such as the wish lists in the Epic Games Store, but many other functions that are present in the rest of digital platforms are still missing. .
