Watched some gameplay footage. Wow, that looks really not fun at all. I guess it's fine if you like building stuff and such but the combat looks very weak.

500K from pre orders which are day 1 sales. So the game sold over 500k day 1.

Well then, selling 500k by day 1 of release is not the same as selling 500k in 1 day.

Especially when it technically released up to 4 days early for pre-orders.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

You have a point. Updated the tittle. 



You're right. I was mainly talking about the PC market having lots of early access titles, but yeah console AAA games aren't getting any better either. Good thing I dont play cashgrab AAA's.



It's almost as if streamers and youtubers sell games.

Anyone knows if Epic plans to put the game on Steam in the future?



Interesting concept of charging now and FTP later. Good to see it launch well. I noticed it's the featured game on the psn store.. Good luck to them.

Which is why with ea games, I simply watch them from afar and I'll wait for those that interest me to reach their final release.

I imagine sometime this year. I don't see them fully ingoring the Steam user base, there are far too many to ignore in favor of a minute client that Epic owns. Not even Bethesda is willing to ignore Steam as they are bringing Quake Champions to it as well as selling it on their own client. Ubisoft also does the same as well.

Yea true... especially for a free-to-play game, it would be a weird decision to not make it available on this platform imo.
