Bigben Announces Three More Epic Exclusives

Bigben announced earlier this year that The Sinking City would rise on the Epic Games Store as an exclusive. Now they reveal this bell is tolling for three other titles they are publishing, saying they've signed EGS exclusivity deals for three titles coming out over the next three months: WRC 8, scheduled for release on September 5th; Paranoia: Happiness is Mandatory which is due on October 3rd; and Bee Simulator, expected on November 14th. "We are very pleased to be reinforcing our Epic Games store offer with a variety of unique games from our catalogue," declares Benoit Clerc, Head of Publishing at Bigben. "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." Here's more on each of these games:
WRC 8 is the most complete and authentic official WRC simulation ever made. New off-road physics for all surfaces, a completely redesigned Career Mode, extreme and dynamic weather conditions, 52 teams, 14 countries, over 100 special stages, weekly challenges and an eSports mode... Experience the most intense WRC yet!

In Paranoia: Happiness is Mandatory, control a team of four Troubleshooters of dubious loyalty, who (mostly) obey orders from Friend Computer, a paranoid and irrational artificial intelligence. Inspired by classic CRPGs, the game is the first official adaptation of the cult role-playing game.

See the world through the eyes of a bee in Bee Simulator! In a world inspired by iconic Central Park in New York, you play as a pollinator bee who has set up home in one of the park's trees. Your life is turned upside down one day when humans decide to cut down your tree. The fate of your hive is thrust into your tiny hands.

On Steam only? Yay!

On Uplay only? Sure!

On Origin only? Ok!

On GoG only? Yep!

On Epic only? FRAGRUL BLARGH FRUMPLE *frothing at the mouth* BOYCOTT THE WORLD!

Some people draw the line in a funny place.

Splitting hairs, I know, but has there ever been a Gog exclusive game?

I think more people would be okay with Epic's store if they weren't literally bribing developers to move their games away from other Stores they were already planning to release them on.

Also if Epic's store wasn't a security nightmare, but hopefully that'll improve over time.

Plus, WRC 8 was listed on Steam for almost a YEAR at this point, and now literally less than 14 days before release, they pull it to be an EGS exclusive. That's some shady crap and I'm sorry I won't support garbage like that. Normally I haven't had any issue with EGS (Hades says hello I guess) but garbage like his really irks me. Hey Bigben why not just wait until launch day when people are waiting for the game to unlock on Steam and then pull it for EGS? That'd work out well for you!

If any of those others were guilty of reasons I will never do business with EGS, then I'd boycott them, too.

Steam is Steam. Not perfect but value added.

Uplay and Origin exclusives are publisher exclusives. I don't like it, but they kind of have that right.

GoG is demonstrably not evil.

EGS is a different animal, and if you can't see the difference, vaya con Dios, make your own choices.

Three more games that will not reach a large audience. Either the games are bad and probably won't sell well to start with or the devs are a bunch of idiots.
Devs are a bunch of idiots. Devs love hearing that, it's why they get up in the morning and go to bed at night.

They went with Epic because, like the many others who already have, they chose a known versus an unknown. It's as simple as that, no idiocy involved.

Goddammit. I just ordered a full Thrustmaster Warthog HOTAS system so I could play Bee Simulator. Now I have to wait until 2021 when it's on Steam. ARRRG!

I was interested in Sinky City and Paranoia, guess that's not happening now.
