The Epic Games Launcher store has a search function now. This may seem like the kind of thing you'd expect it to have right from the start, but as Sergey Galyonkin explained on Twitter, "We launched with three games, there was no need to enable search". Now there are slightly more than three games on the Epic Launcher—though still not as many as its competitors, of course—and so it has a search function. Galyonkin adds that "Once we have more games, we'll add more features, including pages", as right now the store is set to infinite scroll.

There are quite a few other features we'd like to see Epic add next, and you can have a look at our suggestions here.

Jody's first computer was a Commodore 64, so he remembers having to use a code wheel to play Pool of Radiance. A former music journalist who interviewed everyone from Giorgio Moroder to Trent Reznor, Jody also co-hosted Australia's first radio show about videogames, Zed Games. He's written for Rock Paper Shotgun, The Big Issue, GamesRadar, Zam, Glixel, and, whose cheques with the bunny logo made for fun conversations at the bank. Jody's first article for PC Gamer was published in 2015, he edited PC Gamer Indie from 2017 to 2018, and actually did play every Warhammer videogame.
