The store will also feature one free game every two weeks throughout 2019. Epic is funding these free releases so you always have something new to come and check out. The first free game will be Subnautica, available from Dec 14th to Dec 27th, followed by Super Meat Boy from Dec 28th to Jan 10th.
It is a bold move on the part of Epic and it shows how serious they are in carving out a place in the market for a new launcher. Subnautica has been one of those games that I had wanted to play but never got around to because I had other games to play. I think this is a very smart idea to win good will and investment into their storefront. I do like free games and having a sizable library on the launcher might push me towards using it.
One more thing of note is that Fortnite will automatically download the moment you finish downloading the launcher. I guess Epic Games wants everyone to feel like they have something in their library before their free game program rolls out.
