Bigben has confirmed that three upcoming PC games will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store as part of a new one-year deal.
Of the three, WRC 8 is probably the highest profile release. The Kylotonn-developed rally racing simulation features new off-road physics, a revamped career mode, dynamic weather conditions, among many other improvements. It’s due for release on September 5, 2019.
Also coming exclusively to the Epic Games Store is cult RPG adaptation, Paranoia: Happiness is Mandatory, which is out on October 3, and the rather beeguiling Bee Simulator, which arrives on November 14.
Speaking about the deal, Bigben’s head of publishing, Benoit Clerc, said:
“We are very pleased to be reinforcing our Epic Games store offer with a variety of unique games from our catalogue. Our latest offer is comprised of three games that are very different from each other: Bee Simulator, a superb family game; Paranoia: Happiness is Mandatory, a tactical CRPG brimming with dark humour; and WRC 8, the official simulation of the FIA World Rally Championship, which will also be the first rally game available on the Epic Games Store.”
There’s no confirmation on whether the three games will make it to other PC stores (i.e., Steam) when the one year partnership ends.
