Epic Games Provider for OAuth 2.0 Client

Latest Stable Version Build Status Code Coverage Code Quality License

This package provides Epic Games OAuth 2.0 support for the PHP League's OAuth 2.0 Client.

This package is compliant with PSR-4, PSR-7, and PSR-12. If you notice compliance oversights, please send a patch via pull request.


To install, use composer:

composer require mrpropre/oauth2-epicgames


The following versions of PHP are supported.

  • PHP 7.3
  • PHP 7.4
  • PHP 8.0


Usage is the same as The League's OAuth client, using \MrPropre\OAuth2\Client\Provider\EpicGames as the provider.

Authorization Code Flow

require __DIR__ . '/vendor/autoload.php';

use MrPropre\OAuth2\Client\Provider\EpicGames;
use League\OAuth2\Client\OptionProvider\HttpBasicAuthOptionProvider;

session_start(); // Remove if session.auto_start=1 in php.ini

$provider = new EpicGames([
    'clientId'          => '{epicgames-client-id}',
    'clientSecret'      => '{epicgames-client-secret}',
    'redirectUri'       => '',
], [
    'optionProvider' => new HttpBasicAuthOptionProvider()

if (!isset($_GET['code'])) {

    // If we don't have an authorization code then get one
    $authUrl = $provider->getAuthorizationUrl();
    $_SESSION['oauth2state'] = $provider->getState();
    header('Location: ' . $authUrl);

// Check given state against previously stored one to mitigate CSRF attack
} elseif (empty($_GET['state']) || ($_GET['state'] !== $_SESSION['oauth2state'])) {

    exit('Invalid state');

} else {

    // Try to get an access token (using the authorization code grant)
    $token = $provider->getAccessToken('authorization_code', [
        'code' => $_GET['code']

    // Optional: Now you have a token you can look up a users profile data
    try {

        // We got an access token, let's now get the user's details
        $user = $provider->getResourceOwner($token);

        // Use these details to create a new profile
        printf('Hello %s!', $user->getUsername());

    } catch (\Exception $e) {

        // Failed to get user details
        exit('Something went wrong: ' . $e->getMessage());

    // Use this to interact with an API on the users behalf
    echo $token->getToken();

Managing Scopes

When creating your Epic Games authorization URL, you can specify the state and scopes your application may authorize.

$options = [
    'scope' => ['basic_profile','friends_list','presence'] // array or string

$authorizationUrl = $provider->getAuthorizationUrl($options);

If neither are defined, the provider will utilize internal defaults.

At the time of authoring this documentation, the following scopes are available.

  • basic_profile
  • presence
  • friends_list


$ ./vendor/bin/phpunit
