Epic Games has released a patch that mitigates issues with the latest version of the Epic Games Store launcher affecting PC hardware.
This issue seems to increase CPU utilization and system temperature, but was first elaborated on Reddit (Thanks, PC Gamer) and urged to agree that there is a problem with PC laptop temperature and battery life. I did.
“Looking at the task manager, I found that the Epic Games launcher was illuminating the cores, keeping some cores on even though they seemed to be doing nothing, and not updating the game in the background.” HotHardware said, and the launcher seems to “send data to over 22 different servers on a regular basis.”
Epic’s Sergiy Galyonkin has updated the player by confirming that the hotfix has been deployed, but admits that it is “not a perfect solution.”
The hotfix is currently available (11.0.2). This is not a perfect solution, but the situation should improve.

“Well, I’ve read an internal thread on this, so I understand the basics (I kept thinking that the browser module was open when it was essentially minimized), but what’s causing it? I’m not entirely sure, “Galyonkin added later in a response on Twitter. “As far as I know, there is no portal to the underworld :)”
