Epic Games announces new ‘Epic Rewards’ program

Epic Games has been seemingly doing all they can to maintain as well as grow within the PC gaming space. From free weekly games to reduced fees for developers, the Epic Games Store has been rather generous in this respect. The storefront is now going one step further, offering 5% back on all future purchases as part of a new Epic Rewards program.

Making the announcement on their store, the Epic Games team said “Introducing Epic Rewards: a brand-new way to earn 5% back in Rewards on every eligible purchase you make on the Epic Games Store, starting today.”

Offering additional information on how this works, they continued “The new Epic Rewards program is always on, free to join, and requires no sign-up. All Epic Games account holders will be enrolled in the Epic Rewards program at purchase point, so all you have to do is buy any games, apps, add-ons, or virtual currency on the Epic Games Store – even V-Bucks. You’ll automatically earn 5% back in Epic Rewards, which will be added to your Rewards Balance two weeks (14 days) after completing the associated purchase.”

In essence, this works like Nintendo’s Gold Coins system which gives a small percentage of the cost of a game back as in-store credit. While unlikely to be enough of a draw for those who do not use the Epic Games Store, this new program serves as a nice boon to all current and ongoing customers.
