Epic Games Store Adds Ratings; Fights Review Bombing

A post on The Epic Games Store from last week announces the addition of Ratings and Polls to the store. Word is: "Responses will populate the store product pages with information about games and apps, creating a better experience and helping players find games they’re more likely to love." But what about review bombing, you might ask, since this has become an increasingly common occurrence. According to Epic, this system is designed to prevent that. Here's how:
Our ratings system will ask random players, who have played a game for more than two hours, to give a rating on a five point scale. Here's how it works: Following a play session, random players will be offered the opportunity to score the game up to five stars. Over time, these scores will help populate the “Overall Rating” that will appear on the product’s store page. Because these requests are randomized, we won’t spam our players, and we probably won’t ask about every game or app used. This approach protects games from review bombing and ensures people assigning scores are actual players of the games.
