Fortnite maker Epic Games has added a few new PC apps to its games store.
In a post on its website, the firm revealed that indie games platform Itch.io was coming to the Epic Games Store, alongside open-source browser Brave, digital painting app Krita, model generator KenShape and music streaming service IHeartRadio.
Speaking to Polygon, Epic confirmed that when you download Itch.io, none of the revenue on sales will be going to the Fortnite firm.
“Itch.io is a collection of some of the most unique, interesting, and independent creations you’ll find on the web,” Epic said.
“Bringing the itch.io app to the Epic Games Store will give us an opportunity to widen the audience of people who can discover the diverse collection of indie works that we host.”
As of the end of 2020, the Epic Games Store boasted over 160 million users. It recently emerged that Epic has been ploughing huge amounts of money into this platform and will not be profitable for some time – which isn't exactly surprising, let's face it.
Epic also recently closed a $1 billion funding round, with a $28.7 billion valuation.
