Epic Game Store Is Now Live

Epic probably made the biggest splash at The Game Awards this year with the launch of its digital storefront for PC and Mac. Epic did say that it would share more details about the store at the event, but I am sure nobody was expecting a full-fledged launch of the store with a slew of high-profile titles like Darksiders 3, World War Z, etc.

Earlier this week Ubisoft teased a new Far Cry game hinting at a post-apocalyptic sequel. Well, the Game Awards was were the company unveiled ‘Far Cry: New Dawn’, Ubisoft’s next installment in the open-world series.
