Epic Games sends word that the Gears of War and Unreal Engine developer has launched a new web store, offering a bunch of exclusive merch emblazoned with the art and logos from their popular franchises.
Epic gear and goods may be ordered now with expedited shipping to arrive in time for holiday gifting. Notable mentions include “Gears of War” clothing and artwork, new t-shirts based on “Infinity Blade,” “Unreal Tournament,” “Jazz Jackrabbit” and Unreal Engine, as well as Epic Gamer apparel. Of course, the introductory collection wouldn’t be complete without a t-shirt dedicated to Epic’s Impossible Studios, which comes emblazoned with the Internet-approved Impossibear mascot.
“We’re excited to launch Epic’s official store and provide our loyal fans apparel and merchandise that they can’t find anywhere else,” said Kendall Boyd, Epic’s director of marketing, worldwide studios. “Our hope is to grow our brand via channels such as the Epic Store and celebrate all of our terrific intellectual properties with the community.”
The Epic Store will be continually upgraded and expanded, with many more surprises planned for fans in the coming weeks and months.
A separate "Games" tab lists Gears and Infinity Blade, but only offers links to "retail partners", so it's uncertain whether the developer intends to eventually use the storefront to retail their own games.
Unfortunately, there's no Jill of the Jungle merch yet either. Check it out over at epicgamesstore.com
