A story from last week on Abacus reports that, with little fanfare, Tencent has launched its WeGame store outside China (thanks PCGamesN). This offers more competition for Steam and the Epic Games Store, though at this point the store only features a catalogue of 17 games (though in fairness, this is quadruple the number of games available on the Epic Games Store at launch). Word is: "All 17 games on WeGame X are from Chinese companies, with indie games accounting for more than half. The rest of the collection comprises of titles developed by Tencentís own Next Studios and two wuxia RPGs that come with no English translation." Of course if gamers are suspicious of Chinese spying in Epic's store for just being partnered with Tencent, then there's bound to be even more skepticism about Tencent's own store. The WeGame X Website is where to check this out, and you can switch from the default Chinese to an English-language view via the menu. It looks like the most familiar (and expensive) titled offered at this point is My Time at Portia, so it will be interesting to see how this expands going forward.
