The Epic Games Store will use randomized ratings to curb review bombing

The Epic Games Store has finally implemented ratings and polls to let players dish out feedback about the games they're playing -- but there's a twist.

In a bid to protect games from review bombing and ensure those assigning scores have actually played the games they're rating, the Epic Games Store will ask random players (who've played a game for more than two hours) to rate the experience on a five point scale.

Epic believes that randomizing the process will prevent Epic Games Store users from piling on specific titles to artificially lower (or perhaps even inflate) its store rating.

Detailing how the system will work in a blog post. Epic explained that players will be selected at random following a play session to score a game up to five stars.
