Users with Intel and AMD Ryzen processors warn that Epic Games’ digital platform causes unusual behavior in their hardware.
Not a few users with Intel and AMD Ryzen processors have noticed unusual behavior in their computers in recent weeks, detecting a considerable increase in the temperature of their CPUs when using the Epic Games Store launcher; and not just running games, but also detect the problem without any game open, just simply open the software Epic Games.
Epic Games offers a non-definitive solution
Apparently, and after several tests on different computers, Epic Games has come to the conclusion that its launcher was running processes in the background that are too demanding with processor resources, which causes a noticeable increase in CPU temperature due to working continuously.
The hotfix is live now (11.0.2). It's not a full solution, but things should improve.

According to Epic Games, a solution is already being worked on, although for now it is not final. Thus, after the update 11.0.2, the bug in principle should stop appearing, although from the company commented, through Sergiy Galyonkin, editorial strategy director of Epic Games, which “is not a complete solution” and will continue working to fix this problem permanently with new patches that should not take long to arrive.
The Epic Games Store continues to give away digital games every day during its current holiday promotion; so much so that only today and tomorrow at 17:00 hours Central European Time, we can make us with Torchlight II completely free of charge, to make way for the latest offering from this promotion from tomorrow at the same time. Let’s remember that during these Christmas holidays, and since last December 17, Epic Games has been giving away one game per day, completing this year a total of 15 gifts in the form of 15 free games that we can add to our Epic Games digital library.
