Deep Silver announced that Metro Exodus will exclusively launch on Epic Games Store, but people who pre-ordered in Steam will be able to access the game and future DLCs. Creating another “pre-order to get Steam access” situation.

Skybound announced that remaining third, fourth, and final season of the Telltale’s The Walking Dead will release on Epic Games Store. But people who purchased season-pass on another platform will still receive all episode on that platform.
