About Steam

Steam is one of the leading video game digital distribution services in the world.

Steam has also expanded into an online web-based and mobile digital storefront which now offers over 34,000 titles and has over 90 million active users. Steam provides users with installation and automatic updating of games, modification workshops, video streaming and community features such as friends lists, groups, cloud saving, and in-game voice and chat functionality.

About Epic Games

The Epic Games Store is a digital video game storefront for Windows and macOS, operated by Epic Games. It launched in December 2018 as a platform to distribute its popular ‘Fortnite’ title and subsequently opened the doors to other publishers.

The storefront provides a basic catalogue, friends list management, matchmaking, and other features. Epic Games has further plans to expand the feature set of the store front but it does not plan to add as many features as other digital distribution platforms, such as discussion boards or user reviews, instead using existing social media platforms to support these. It aims to appeal to gamers through exclusive titles, regular sales and a free game program.
