Epic Games Launcher is a shell for launching games that have been developed or published by Epic Games. Such applications are not created by many major publishers and are designed for image rather than some particularly important functional purpose. Among the projects that can be launched using this program are: Paragon, Fortnite, Unreal Tournament, ARK and Shadow Complex. You can download any of them directly from the "lounge". It also serves to download updates and manage account status. By the way, an account can also be created directly at the first start of the application.
The structure of Epic Games Launcher is a bit like Blizzard's Battle.net app. They are similar not only to a small number of games, but also to the fact that they are, as it were, a social client of gaming communities. That is, the program has a single account and a list of friends. Friends from the list can be invited to play any of the games available in Epic Games Launcher. As in the case of Blizzard, users will be given nice bonuses for participating in beta testing or purchasing a new game in other projects. Such bonuses are usually unique game items and other tinsel. The "louncher" also shows the latest news about Epic Games and its games.
Besides games, Epic Games Launcher is a kind of social hub for professionals and amateurs involved in game development on Unreal Engine. The app even has a store where developers sell textures, models and other digital products.
