Fun fact: if you purchase "Grindstone", the Paypal invoice (received by email) mentions the codename "Amsterdam" instead of the game name.

So its code name was Redstart, I also thought for sure this would be exclusive given all the flags.
Interestingly, the game did not appear in the database earlier.


The entries in the database were created on May 18-19, but were not leaked (even the codename) by database.egdata.app.

Part of me sees this as a positive, low end systems can still run higher graphic settings without much of a burden. Engine scaling is always a plus.
That said, it feels a bit like 'UE5 is preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should.' if it provied no other discernible upside to using UE5

Gonna be 15.99 on launch, so it's worth waiting for if you're picking it up on EGS with the coupon.

It depends on your currency. In Euro, the coupon is applicable now.

I don't know if the offer to activate the EGS version on Steam is still valid. I know I did it a year or so ago.

I am Europe, but pay in SEK. The game costs 139 SEK, the coupon is applicable if the price is over 140 SEK
The price increase might help :p

Tried Old World again today. This game does not feel good to play and feels like a mediocre copycat of Civ. Maybe it get's better if I play more, but the first impression after a long time of not having tried it is not good.

Seems like also one of the least known Epic exclusives, barely any talk on Twitter and the game's subreddit.

I have compiled a list of games released between 2015 and 2019 and with a player peak on Steam higher than 10k. I believe this is the kind of list that Humble and Epic Games must be looking at when choosing games to feature in a Choice bundle, or to give away as a freebie on EGS. I have already removed from the lists games which were given away by Epic, though it is possible that I missed a few of them, as well as games by EA, Microsoft, Bethesda, and FromSoftware.

3 letters?


The fact that they plan to stream it an hour after giving it away could mean that it is a brand new game, so I would guess UT3 with EOS.

I dunno, that's an Epic game. EGS desn't really have those... Also, 2K4 > UT99 > 3, so start give the good one please. It could use a bigger audience again

I think that document was made around March 2020 when EOS was still in concept. It may have been scrapped.

Old World is releasing out of ea on july 1st. No mention of Steam.

The game seems already long forgotten and with Humankind in august, Old World will be forgotten even harder.

I don't expect much to have changed since last time I tried the game which was just a few days ago actually.


One of the devs wrote this on the release date trailer:

I promise you will know more in a few months. Meanwhile, thank you for the energy you are sending (I saw your other post)

I will mention below 3 examples of Epic's weird behavior. I own Football Manager 2020, Observer and Just Cause 4, as they were given away by Tim.

Football Manager 2020 was delisted, after the 2021 version was released:
  • There is a store page for the original version, with a disclaimer about the game being delisted.
  • The store page of the new version does not mention anything "owned" by me, as expected.
  • I can still play the original game.
Observer was delisted, after the enhanced version (called redux) was released.
  • The store page of the original version returns a 404 error code. 🙈
  • The store page of the new version does not mention anything "owned" by me. No free upgrade. 😭
  • I can still play the original game on my machine, but not on Geforce Now, as Nvidia's service only knows about the redux version.
Just Cause 4's webpage was updated after the enhanced version (called reloaded) was released.
  • The store page of the original version still exists.
  • This store page does not mention the original version anymore, only the new version, so there is nothing "owned" by me. [UWSL]:doubtblob:[/UWSL]
  • I can still play the game, but which one? I have played on Geforce Now, and it was the reloaded version! 🙉

I registered an US account to buy Griftlands for cheap. But I failed to buy it because the payment method doesn't match with the billing address or something :(

Is there any guide buy games on a different region?

I am not sure where to post this.

Ubisoft walks in Epic's footsteps, with unlimited $10 coupons for purchases higher than $15.






Control is alleged to be the next free game offered on EGS, later today.
