First Epic Games Store Exclusives Ending

The Epic Games Store officially launched one year ago Saturday, disrupting the game marketplace with an attractive royalty structure and an aggressive approach to exclusivity. But as PCGamesN notes, the first EGS exclusives are starting to trickle out to other storefronts, since many of their deals covered the first year of availability. The first is open world co-op action/RPG Ashen, which is now available on and Steam. They also note the next couple of games with exclusive periods that will soon conclude:
On December 10, Hades – a mythology-themed roguelike brawler from the makers of Bastion, Transistor, and Pyre – will hit Steam. The game’s gotten some substantial updates since its early launch on Epic, but will still be marked as an Early Access title, and the full launch is scheduled for the “second half of 2020.” No word yet on price or discounts, but Hades is currently $24.99 USD on Epic.

Hello Neighbor: Hide and Seek also hits Steam on December 10. The colourful horror prequel got a much more mixed response than Epic’s other two launch exclusives, but you should expect to see it for around $29.99 USD.
