Epic Games Store Adds 1,200 Retro Titles With Cloud Service Antstream Arcade

The Epic Games Store has come a long way since its inception a few years ago. It's now on the Microsoft Store and finally has some achievements for gamers to hunt for, plus all the free games it's still giving away every month.

And now you can add Antstream Arcade to the list. Antstream is a retro gaming service that lets you play emulated classic games through the cloud. Arcade classics like Pac-Man, Space Invaders, Galaga, Bubble Bobble, and Centipede are all on Antstream, along with console hits like Mortal Kombat, Earthworm Jim, and Ikari Warriors. The service also recently got the Super Star Wars series for the SNES.

Antstream boasts over 1,200 retro titles plus services like global tournaments, leaderboards, and challenges. It's available on Mac, Android, Linux, Nvidia Shield, and even Amazon Fire. It's also available on Steam, so this is less about competition for Epic and more about parity with its arch-rival.

You can get Antstream Arcade totally free if you don’t mind looking at ads every once in a while, or you can pay for the premium subscription for $9.99 per month to get rid of those pesky ads.
