I know its off topic but with this being the most active thread and most of the posts being about free games on epic, is anyone else having a problem with the epic games launcher on big sur? I had to use safari to get my 'purchase' of total war troy, as since big sur, my epic games launcher is invisible apart from the red orange and green dots in the top left.

Big Sur is beta. It's not ready for prime and not meant to be used as primary system. It's to be expected that many application don't work properly with it yet.

Sure, but the beta is public so that companies (or Apple) can solve issues before release day. And johntravers did mention a workaround to his problem which might help someone.

IMHO a Big Sur discussion thread might not be a bad thing. I'd read it, even though I only just upgraded to Catalina.
