But if you haven't played it yet, you can get it now for free (the game usually costs $25). Epic Games, the creators of the smash-hit Fortnite, is letting people download Subnautica for free through the Epic Games Store on PC.
To make the Epic Games Store even more appealing, the company has promised a new free game every two weeks — Subnautica is the first, with Super Meat Boy coming Dec. 28.
Epic Games has also made its store more competitive by sharing 88 percent of the revenue with game developers (Steam shares 65-70 percent of revenue with devs). This tactic is likely an appeal to game developers to sell their games through Epic.
Epic Games isn't the only one battling Steam. Gaming chat platform Discord also launched a PC games store earlier this year.
