GOG and Epic have announced that the Epic Games Store is now an officially integrated part of Galaxy 2.0. This further expands the ability of players to view all of their various game libraries, friends lists, achievements, and much more from one launcher. EGS joins Xbox Live as officially integrated platforms, though players can also bring others into the fold in an unofficial capacity. Many are citing the inclusion of EGS as a direct assault on Steam’s dominance as the go-to game store and launcher.
“We’re happy to add to GOG GALAXY 2.0 the official integration with Epic Games Store, which is the second most connected external platform in the app,” says Oleg Klapovsky, SVP at GOG. “Together with GOG.COM and Xbox Live, those official integrations are bringing a more seamless and reliable experience to gamers.”
“We’re excited that Epic Games Store integration has come to GOG GALAXY 2.0,” said Steve Allison, General Manager of the Epic Games Store. “It’s an important step towards breaking down walls between PC stores, as it enables a unified experience for players to manage their PC games library independent of where their games were purchased.”
