The Epic Games Store is accepting five new currencies

The Epic Games Store will now accept a further five currencies.

As revealed on Twitter (below), Australia, Denmark, Sweden, Canada and Norway will have their currencies supported on the Fortnite maker's storefront. 

It will be a welcome addition as users in those countries who – until now – needed to convert their own money into US dollars. As reported by PC Gamer, users in those five countries were paying more for games due to currency transfers.

However, now, the price they pay on the Epic Games Store will match the cost on Steam. As shown in its Trello roadmap, Epic is working on self-service refunds, offline sign-in, a discovery add-on and achievements.

Further down the line, the American firm wants to add more currencies, additional payment methods, user reviews, newsfeed and follow improvements, shopping cart and more.

In March, Epic Games added wishlists to its storefront. At the start of the year, the Fortnite creator added OpenCritic integration to its storefront. Last October, the storefront got a redesign.

Since its launch, the Epic Games Store has welcomed 108 million PC users.
