For the past few weeks, the Epic Games Store has been giving away new free games every day (right now) Torchlight 2 which applies) so you have probably logged in via the Epic Games launcher quite often. And if you have done so, you may have noticed that your processor has been hotter than normal, especially if you use AMD.
This was noticed via Reddit and has now been confirmed by Sergiy Galyonkin (Steamspy creator and Epic Games employee), who says that a hotfix already exists, which is not a “complete solution”. We do not know exactly why the problem has arisen, but hopefully the whole thing will be fixed completely soon.
Here’s Sergiy Galyonkin’s tweet about the Epic Games launcher’s hotfix.
