Based on this launch trailer, the hype is real. Lots of love from gaming publications. That probably will not stop it from getting review bombed on Steam. It's early days yet, but it's currently sitting at Mostly Positive.
This is another way Epic Games Store is competing with Steam, even if Steam currently offers regional pricing, it will no longer be an advantage for Steam. Steam's 15 year run of solely dominating PC gaming digital distribution, is over.
The Epic Game Store vs Steam. There's no turning back now.
