However, some Steam players are experiencing bugs in their inventory, the situation has led several users to express the anger of the transition of the game to the Epic Games Store.
Steam has responded by categorizing the reviews as ‘Off-Topic’ something that angered, even more, the annoyed users, as Steam’s response is seen as part of the problem.
Rocket Player Squanch shares his frustration with a negative review, here is what the 1000 hour-player has to say about the Epic Games Store inclusion to the game.
So Epic takes over, breaks the game, can’t connect to the Epic Services so I can’t play, takes away garage items, and then Steam blocks new reviews due to “off-topic” review activity unless you change the settings manually. Went from a game a played daily to a game I literally can’t play.
