Epic Games' Tim Sweeney addresses Chinese spyware rumor

Concerns over the Epic Games store's use of data surfaced in recent weeks.

The players also do not shy away from insults and tinker about ASCII characters a stinky finger for Epic Games.

Games being timed-exclusive on the Epic Games Store will continue to be a thing.

However, at the end of this month, the strategy Anno 1800 also escaped from the Valve store nearly before the release. Early this morning, Tim Sweeney commented on a report by USGamer covering the allegations, asking people to "help separate facts and opinions from the lies about spyware and foreign control". The tentpole feature for Borderlands 3 is vehicular combat, which is sure to inspire Mad Max-esque feelings in players, as they tear across savage lands engaging in combat with enemies. Be it after sales, the sheer variety, or access to a massive community, not all PC games stores are created equally. With such a software many do not want to anything to do.

This is the case with Borderlands 3 right now, having announced a six month exclusivity deal with the Epic Games Store, fans of the series have taken to the forum to start their revolution by leaving nasty reviews on the older games in the franchise. Thematically, it's a game about epiphany, that leap your mind makes when you instantly go from confusion to understanding.

Is this an isolated case? No.

Last month, Valve revealed a solution to Steam's increasingly ubiquitous review bomb problem: a new system where a human team digs through reeking piles of fishy reviews surfaced by an automated program, and - if they find those reviews to be sufficiently suspicious - they'll "mark the time period it encompasses and notify the developer".

As well as putting its online store in front of millions of PC-based Fortnite players, Epic has also been attracting new users through a rolling 14-day schedule of giveaways for well-received games since a December 2018 launch.

"Epic is open to continuing to sign funding/exclusivity deals with willing developers and publishers regardless of their previous plans or announcements around Steam", said Tim Sweeny. Epic Games, the creator of popular PUBG alternative Fortnite, has been accused by gamers of using underhanded tactics to score exclusives in a bid to strengthen the Epic Games Store (it's like an App Store for PC games).
