Epic has just rolled out its latest update to the Epic Games Store, and with it, turned PC game refunds into a self-service feature.

Epic describes the new feature as “self-service refunds,” meaning they require no intervention by someone at Epic before the money appears back in your bank account. That is, of course, as long as you are eligible for a refund on any particular game. For a self-refund to work, the game can’t have been purchased more than 14 days ago and not played for more than two hours. You can ask for a refund for any reason you like as long as you abide by those two eligibility rules.

There are two caveats, though. The first is if Epic determines you are “abusing the refund polciy,” which I have to assume means they detect your account is refunding a lot of games over time. If you are banned from a game or have violated the terms of service, Epic won’t allow a refund either.

Two other features Epic rolled out this week are worth mentioning. The first is Keyless Integration, which means new partnerships have been created with third-party digital sales platforms including Fanatical, Green Man Gaming, and Genba Digital. It means if you purchase a game using one of those platforms, you can link your Epic account to them directly and bypass having to enter a 20-digit redemption code. Epic also sees this feature as ensuring gamers are purchasing legitimate copies.

Finally, there’s a “first iteration” of a new bandwidth management tool being introduced. It allows gamers to throttle their Epic Games Store downloads, meaning large games can be made to take longer to download by using less of the available bandwidth on any given connection. If you have a slow connection and want to use the internet while download a 50GB game, this tool is going to prove extremely useful.
