If to find a platform, the most generous publisher in 2022, perhaps many people will call the name Epic Games. Not often launching seasonal discounts like Steam, and rarely allowing players to experience some blockbusters during the weekend for free, which Epic Games makes a lot simpler.

And it is estimated that to own all this treasure, players will have to spend an amount of about $ 2,240 (about 50 million VND) – a not small number. However, all were generously donated by Epic Games. The results also come soon after, when the number of people using this platform is showing signs of increasing sharply over time.
