Current PC game stores such as Steam or the Epic Games Store, among many others, are not limited to selling us games. Through the clients that we install on our PCs, we have innumerable additional functions such as interacting in some way with our friends and contacts.
And it is that many of the titles that we buy, download and install on our computers have a high online content. This means that on many occasions we play them through our internet connection with users from all over the world. Precisely for all this and aware of the importance of this connection, the developers of the corresponding clients increasingly offer us new functions in this regard. With this, what we want to tell you is that these programs allow us in some way to interact with our friends in different ways.
For example, we can play in cooperative mode, exchange objects, share games, or simply chat to exchange opinions. Be that as it may, in most cases at this point we will be grateful to be able to do this from the client itself. Along these same lines, we want to focus on one of these aforementioned stores, such as the Epic Games Store. We say all this because from the client itself we have the possibility to connect with our friends from one of the most used social networks . We refer to Facebook , where possibly many of our contacts also use this Epic Games client.
Next, we will see how to configure the mentioned game store client for PC and thus connect with our friends on Zuckerberg’s social network.
Configure Epic Games to connect with Facebook
For all this that we tell you, the first thing we must do is start the client that we install in Windows in a conventional way. From that moment we will be able to access our game library, or purchase new content from the store proposed here. But this is not what really interests us in this particular case. What we are going to do is connect our Epic Games account with that of the Facebook social network . It is evident that for all this we must first be registered in the aforementioned social network.
Likewise, in the main interface of the client, specifically in the upper right part, we will see a button with two silhouettes. This is the one that allows us to add friends who use this same gaming service to our account. Therefore, we click on it and the friends we have on the platform at that time will appear on the screen. At the same time at the bottom of that small window we find a link that says Link your social network .
In addition to being able to enter email addresses, at the bottom we will find a large-format icon of the Facebook social network. We only have to click on it to enter the corresponding access credentials to it. Thus, from that moment both platforms will be linked and we will be able to see our Facebook friends who also use the Epic Games Store.
