Epic Games Store Nabs Control, The Sinking City, and Many More New Exclusives

Published

Epic

Despite fury from some consumers, developers continue to sign exclusivity deals for the Epic Games Store, with a new swathe announced at GDC.

Key among those newly revealed exclusives are Remedy Entertainment’s Control and Assassin’s Creed creator Patrice Désilets’s prehistoric project Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey.

Meanwhile, much discussion has centred on the unexpected revelation that Quantic Dream is bringing Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls, and Detroit: Become Human to PC via Epic’s distribution platform.

Further new games include the free-to-play action RPG Dauntless, the factory-building sim Satisfactory, and The Sinking City.

While Obsidian’s new RPG The Outer Worlds will also land on the store, it will also be available via the Windows Store.

This fresh slate of reveals comes little more than a week after Julian Gollop revealed his new XCOM-alike Phoenix Point will be exclusive to the new storefront for a year.

As with other games set to arrive on Epic Games Store, the deals for many of these new releases seems to last for at least a year, with the Steam pages of Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey, The Sinking City and The Outer Worlds, at least, mentioning specifically the delay.

DOOM Eternal Gets Nightmarish Concept Art

Published

Doom Eternal

Bethesda has been pretty quiet about DOOM Eternal the past few months, but the company has reminded onlookers of the project’s stellar design via a piece of concept art.

Entitled ‘Hell Gate’, the concept art details Hell’s equivalent of royalist architecture, complete with DOOM (2016)’s penchant for contrasting colours and strong, angular geometry. The centrepiece of the art is the beloved Doomguy, whose heavy frame looks pretty small compared to the scale.

The art was shared directly on the game’s Twitter page, embedded below:

DOOM Eternal has no release date as of yet, but expect id Software to share more about the game at Bethesda’s E3 conference.
