I have been out of the loop in the video game industry. I just wanted to clarify, Epic games are opening an online video game store similar to steam?

mportant Announcement – we’re partnering with Epic to bring Metro Exodus to the Epic Store. This partnership will allow Deep Silver to invest in the future of the Metro series and the development team at 4A Games. Read the full story and FAQ.

Epic Games and Deep Silver today announced a partnership that will see the digitally-distributed PC version of the highly anticipated Metro Exodus release on February 15th 2019 solely through the Epic Games store.

Players worldwide can now pre-purchase both Standard and Gold Editions at EpicGames.com, from $49.99 in North America and €59.99 in most European countries*. All pre-orders include the Metro Exodus Original Soundtrack and ‘The World of Metro’ Digital Art Book.

“Metro Exodus is amazing and is deservedly one of the most anticipated PC titles of 2019,” said Tim Sweeney, founder and CEO of Epic. “We are partnering with Deep Silver to launch Metro Exodus, underpinned by Epic’s marketing support and commitment to offering an 88% revenue split, enabling game creators to further reinvest in building great games and improving the economics of game stores for everybody.”

“We are delighted to partner with Epic to bring the digital PC version of Metro Exodus to market,” said Dr. Klemens Kundratitz, CEO at Deep Silver. “Epic’s generous revenue terms are a game changer that will allow publishers to invest more into content creation, or pass on savings to the players. By teaming up with Epic we will be able to invest more into the future of Metro and our ongoing partnership with series developer 4A Games, to the benefit of our Metro fans.”

Any customer with an outstanding pre-order for Metro Exodus on PC through any digital retailer will receive their game as expected.

Metro Exodus is an epic, story-driven first-person shooter from 4A Games that blends deadly combat and stealth with exploration and survival horror in one of the most immersive game worlds ever created. Explore the Russian wilderness across vast, non-linear levels and follow a thrilling story-line that spans an entire year through spring, summer and autumn to the depths of nuclear winter. Inspired by the novels of Dmitry Glukhovsky, Metro Exodus continues Artyom’s story in the greatest Metro adventure yet.

Metro Exodus will be released on February 15 for Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, and PC.

In addition, Deep Silver will release Metro 2033 Redux and Metro: Last Light Redux to the Epic Games store later this year.

Epic Games currently has a review system in the works for its store, though Sweeney notes that developers won’t be required to have user reviews on their games’ store pages.

Instead, the system will require devs to opt-in to reviews, something Sweeney notes on Twitter aims to counteract review bombing and “other gaming-the-system” type issues that tend to plague user reviews. The system will be based on the review setup for the Unreal Engine Marketplace, as well.

Dauntless accounts will be migrating to the Epic Games store this year.

The current Dauntless patcher will be retired after all accounts are migrated.

You will use your new Epic Games account to log in to Dauntless in the future.

For extra questions, check the FAQ at the end of this article.
