Epic Games Store changes its refund policy to match Steam's, adds local pricing (on some countries)

a self-service solution to refunding will be good. It amazes me how Steam doesn't have that shit.

Local pricing is the one thing that is making sure I dont buy from the Epic store.

They do that, I am there 100%.

Last I checked, Division 2 was like $62 in Mexico and Argentina. Can anyone confirm if it still has that price?

Good on then. So what are people’s complaints going to be with Epic store next?

I'm pretty sure they did say they were going to add new features/improvements in 2019, so they started sooner than expected.
Not entirely sure why people expected a store to be as good as it was ever going to be right at launch, but it's nice they implemented fan suggested features quickly. Imagine they'll keep at it as they keep pushing the storefront

Stop the exclusivity moneyhatting and you're actually going in the right direction of what competition should be Epic.

I wonder if people will keep accusing Epic of moneyhatting whenever a developer opts to release their title on their store instead of Steam...

Last time I refunded a game (in November) I had to file a ticket and wait for their slow ass support to get to it. If there is a self-service refund then I am ignorant to it.
Then you're doing it wrong.
You need to go to https://help.steampowered.com/ click on a recent purchase and simply push the buttons for "i want to request a refund", then you get a confirmation within 2 to 3 hours.

It's not an accusation if it's a fact.

Well that is enough for me to consider purchasing on the Epic Games Store. I still won’t purchase any exclusives on the platform. I doubt it will have any affect on whether they will continue to do pay for exclusives or not but I just can’t support that practice on the PC platform.
