Key Takeaways

Elden Ring on Steam

The highly anticipated Elden Ring has landed on Steam, stirring excitement among gamers who can now wishlist the game and explore its features through screenshots and details. Set for release on January 20, 2022, fans eagerly await without hoping for further delays.

Google Wanted to Buy Epic Games

In recent reports, Google has shown interest in acquiring Epic Games, the creators of the immensely popular Fortnite, amid an ongoing lawsuit between Epic Games and Apple. The lawsuit stemmed from Fortnite's removal from both the Apple App Store and Google Play Store after Epic Games attempted to bypass payment systems. Epic Games claimed Google was interested in acquisition to eliminate competition and enforce its own payment system, potentially solidifying its market dominance. The lawsuit's outcome is uncertain, with implications that could impact the gaming industry significantly.

Epic Games Store Free Game

Starting August 12, 2021, Epic Games will offer Rebel Galaxy for free, replacing the current title, A Plague Tale: Innocence. If you haven't claimed A Plague Tale yet, there's still time to do so. Remember, once you redeem a game on the Epic Games Store, it's yours to keep forever. This strategy of offering free games serves to attract more visitors to the platform and compensate developers for their games, ultimately benefiting both Epic Games and developers. With Elden Ring's debut on Steam sparking excitement and Google's interest in acquiring Epic Games adding complexity to ongoing legal battles, the gaming industry continues to evolve. Stay tuned for more updates as the industry pushes boundaries and captivates players worldwide.
