Aside from the most obvious titles Fortnite Battle Royale and Unreal Tournament under their belt, Epic Games Store is housing exclusive titles like Ashen, Genesis Alpha One, Hades, Super Meat Boy Forever, Telltale's The Walking Dead: The Final Season and World War Z.

Even before the story was adapted into video games, Metro series was a super-hit original novel from author Dmitry Glukhovsky and that popularity has led to the eventual conception of a post-apocalyptic survival horror experience for fans.
