The Epic Games Store is not officially supported by Linux, but from today, those who don't have Windows installed on their machines will be able to enjoy most of the games available on it.

The Epic Games Store is now working properly on Linux thanks to Lutris Gaming. The store is fully functional, and most of the available games work without any major issues.

One of the biggest games available on the store, however, is not working properly. Fortnite cannot be played on Linux currently due to the game's anti-cheat systems.

The Epic Games Store has been launched earlier this year, and it managed to get some exclusive games since. One of the biggest releases of the year, Borderlands 3, is also releasing on the store first.

While the Epic Games Store still lacks some of the features available on Steam, more of them will be coming during this year and beyond.
