Epic Games Store - free games every week

Post by kanedaa »

At the end of 2018 Epic launched their Epic Games Store with a promise of 1 free game every 2 weeks throughout 2019. That's how this thread started.

By the end of May 2019 they switched to a free game every week, then in August 2019 they started to include a bonus 'family' rated game in weeks where the main freebie was 'adult' rated. This continued through 2020 with most weeks seeing us get 2 free games to claim and keep.

In their 'Holiday Sales' for 2019 and 2020 they gave away 1 free game each day for 2 weeks.

All this with only the occasional duplicate along the way.

How long will it continue? Who knows...

Came out this year.

It can get quite creepy sometimes for no reason other than how alone it makes you feel :D
