Bigben's End Of Year PC Releases Are Now Epic Games Store Exclusives


The Epic Games Store has secured another round of exclusive titles with publisher Bigben’s year end releases. The titles coming to Epic’s platform are World Rally Championship 8 on September 5th, Paranoia: Happiness is Mandatory on October 3rd, and Bee Simulator on November 14th. Each game will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store for 1 year before being released on other digital store fronts like Steam.

We are very pleased to be reinforcing our Epic Games store offer with a variety of unique games from our catalogue. Our latest offer is comprised of three games that are very different from each other: Bee Simulator, a superb family game; Paranoia: Happiness is Mandatory, a tactical CRPG brimming with dark humour; and WRC 8, the official simulation of the FIA World Rally Championship, which will also be the first rally game available on the Epic Games Store.

Thanks to the Epic Games Store giving more share of the revenue with developers it makes sense so many games are heading to the exclusive route. More features are being added in every update as well to try and bring the service up to par with Valve’s long running Steam service. Honestly I kinda like the simple interface and basic features found in the Epic Games Store as it reminds me of when Steam first came out 15 years ago. I am also a fan of developers getting the bigger revenue share to put into future projects.

Are you interested in any of Bigben’s year end PC titles? Does them coming only to the Epic Games Store turn you off?
