Steam users that continue to avoid purchasing games via the Epic Games Store have another title coming to the storefront soon. Next up is Typhoon Studios' first-person adventure game Journey to the Savage Planet. Journey to a Savage Planet was originally released on January 29, 2020, on PC but was exclusive to the Epic Games Store. It seems that Epic Games Store exclusivity window is coming to an end, as Journey to the Savage Planet will launch on Steam starting January 28.
Journey to the Savage Planet is an understated release from last year. It tasks players with exploring the untamed world of ARY-26, which is full of mysterious life. Like with a Metroidvania, players will discover items and technologies that grant them access to increasing areas of the world. Along the way, players will solve puzzles, platform, and fight against hostile wildlife in order to survive the dangers of this savage planet.
Journey to the Savage Planet was developed by Typhoon Studios, which was only just formed in early 2017. Its founders include Alex Hutchinson, which Ubisoft fans will recognize as the creative director of games including Assassin's Creed 3 and Far Cry 4. Typhoon Studios was acquired by Google's Stadia division in 2019, though Journey to the Savage Planet was still published for other platforms due to its publishing partnership with 505 Games.
Steam users are likely familiar by now with the way the Epic Games Store's exclusivity contracts work. Epic typically provides upfront cash to game developers for temporary exclusivity on PC. In Journey to the Savage Planet's case, the contract appears to have been for one year. Clearly, 505 isn't wasting any time given the game's release date on Steam.
Since its start in 2018, the Epic Games Store has grown its library. The developer has partnered with many indie companies to publish games exclusively to the store. This created a backlash from Steam fans, but there is no denying they have great titles available to be purchased. Some exclusives would eventually make their way to the Steam library.
The publisher acquired exclusive rights to many major titles over the years, but which titles stand out in their library as their best? Furthermore, which exclusives should players avoid? Here's a list of the five best and worst exclusives in the Epic Game Store library.
Updated January 19, 2021 by Thomas Bowen: Epic exclusivity has been a controversial topic in PC gaming for quite some time now, with many players unhappy about the company snapping up big titles to drive players to the platform. It's a tactic that has certainly proven to be fruitful for Epic Games on multiple occasions now, although as we'll soon be seeing, it hasn't always paid off.
These failures don't seem to have deterred decision-makers, however, with new Epic exclusives continuing to release on a regular basis. Hitman 3 is the latest big-budget title to pin its colors to the Epic mast and - given the series' solid track record - seems likely to be yet another great investment on Epic's part. Whether the store's other offerings are enough to keep any new users that the game attracts around though, remains to be seen.
