The Epic Games Store Now has a Search Function

The Epic Games Store is the new kid on the block, capitalising on the popularity of Finite and the company’s Unreal Engine to quickly gain a foothold in the PC gaming retail landscape. Epic Game’s major selling point is their offer of increase game revenue shares, which allows developers to make more money per game sale, which is a big deal for most publishers. 

Sadly, as the latest addition to the world of PC storefronts, Epic’s website and launcher are lacking in features when compared to the likes of Steam, GOG and Origin, so much so that before now the Epic Games Store lacked a search function. Yes, a few days ago the storefront had every game listed in a single page, making the storefront extremely tedious to navigate. Now, this problem has been addressed with a dedicated search bar, a feature which will become a must as more games are added to the retailer. 

Today, the Epic Games Store remains behind its competitors, lacking a review system, chat options and support for Linux (Windows and MacOS are supported). Epic Games promises to add more features to the Epic Games Store as more games become available on the platform.

When asked why it took so long to enable a basic feature like search on the platform, Epic Games developers Sergey Galyonkin stated that “We (Epic Games) launched with three games, there was no need to enable search”. While having a search feature for three games is a little unnecessary, waiting three months for the function is quite a long time for such a basic, especially when almost 40 games are listed on the store at the time of writing.
