Days Gone Story Preview

Days Gone offers a glimpse of Deacon's life with his love Sarah and their unlikely romance before the apocalypse.

Although showing major traits of being a zombie-apocalypse focused game on the surface, upcoming PlayStation 4-exclusive Days Gone from developer SIE Bend Studio and publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment has a lot more to offer as a survival horror action-adventure game.

Primary premise of the game is of course of a global pandemic that wiped out a large number of humankind and it forced Deacon St. John to struggle in a ravaged world just like any other survivors out there but beside that, something else motivates him to go on.

The Division 2 Will Be on Epic Games Store, Not on Steam

Ubisoft will be releasing the PC version of The Division 2 through Epic Games Store while skipping Steam.

Action role-playing game The Division from developer Massive Entertainment and publisher Ubisoft is returning with an upcoming sequel; The Division 2 that is releasing on March 15, 2019 for major platforms like PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Usually, Valve's digital distribution store Steam offers people to play and purchase PC version of different video games on their platform even if the publisher have an online storefront of their own but Ubisoft is planning to skip them this time for Epic Games Store.

In a way, the game is now semi-exclusive to Epic Games to buy copies for PC version aside from the outlet of the original publisher. This recent partnership between these two companies also heralds the possibilities of multiple other titles heading to the same store.

Steam previously had a featured product page for the title listed on their site, which now simply redirects visitors to the home page since Ubisoft has no current plans with it. Any pre-order made earlier or elsewhere will still be honored though, according to the Official Blog Post.

Epic has managed to secure exclusively for upcoming anticipated titles like Hades from Supergiant Games and The Walking Dead: The Final Season from Skybound Games within only a month after entering the marketplace by launching their game store.

Of course, the 88% revenue split Epic Games are offering has a lot to do with Ubisoft migrating to them but it have the consumers concerned with a lot of issues like lack of local currency support, bad refund policy and no visible user review. Don't believe us? Check out the Twitter thread for yourself.

Several big-name company of the industry like Activision has launched Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on Battle.net exclusively and Bethesda Softworks walked the same way with Fallout 76 through their own launcher, probably to have more control over the distribution.
