News - Epic Announces Weekly Free Games Will Continue Through 2020

Epic Announces Weekly Free Games Will Continue Through 2020

Launched in December 2018, the Epic Games Store just wrapped up its first full year as a PC games website and launcher. To celebrate its first year in business, Epic promised it would give away a new free game every two weeks on its storefront, and about halfway through 2019, that turned into one or two free games every single week. While the program was meant to end in December, Epic announced on Tuesday it will continue its weekly free game program through 2020.

In case you're unfamiliar: Epic's free games are available to anyone with an Epic Store account (which is also free to create). After you add them to your library, they're yours to keep forever. Epic gives away one or two free games every week, with new games rotating in on Thursdays at 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET. The quantity depends on a game's rating--if a game rated M or PEGI-18 is included, Epic will offer a second game that's more accessible to younger users.

Epic has given away 73 games since the program began in late 2018. It's been an impressive group of giveaways so far, including Subnautica, What Remains of Edith Finch, The Witness, Alan Wake, Celeste, Superhot, and many more. Even if you've never bought a game from Epic, you could easily have dozens of free games in your library right now if you've been claiming the store's freebies over the past year. According to Epic, the games given away over the past year have totaled $1,455 in total value.

Sundered: Eldritch Edition, a chaotic Metroidvania, is the current free game on Epic. It's available to claim until Thursday, when it will be replaced by the next giveaway, platforming adventure Horace.
