    This is the Heroic Games launcher, and I've found it to work great, you'll need to follow some steps to link it to your epic account and while it won't show the store all your games will easily be launched from there.

  • gamerOS??
    For epic you can use their launcher, but I highly recommend legendary. It's an open source epic launcher, but it's managed from terminal. For a GUI, check Heroic. And no, you won't be able to play Fortnite or any other game with kernel level anti cheat (like rainbow six siege, apex legends, valorant etc.) Games without kernel level anticheat work just fine, like Battlefield or Rocket League for instance. For an (almost) complete list of what works and what doesn't, check ProtonDB. For stuff that ain't on Steam, you can check on lutris which is the prefered launcher for everything non-Steam.
