I purchased the game back in Oct 2019. Played it quite happily for several months, and then uninstalled to check out a different game, saw the 1 year edition had come out so came back to dl and update/grade. when I find out I no longer can see the game in my Epic Game store. I did not know where else to ask about it. Please help.
Try an email to the Epic Games store.
Have you also looked in your game library in the Epic launcher?
The old versions are not longer in the store, so the site can’t tell what you have, only your Epic launcher library can.
