Epic's Weekly Free Games Will Continue Through 2020


Quote:
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.

I have been building my Epic library from just the free games, but over the holiday they had a $10 coupon on purchases over $15, so I had to pick up Rebel Galaxy 2 for $12. I'm a sucker for space shooters, especially first person ones...

I bought that on launch because I loved the original so much. It never did hook me.

I'll have to go back to it.

I've downloaded the free games, cause in most cases it is something I would have pirated anyway but now I don't need to keep it manually updated. Still never given them a buck.

Also having to switch to 2.4ghz instead of 5ghz wifi in order to not saturate the family wifi every time you want to download something from there is beyond annoying in 2020. I tried a network throttler program a while ago but it was more annoying than just doing that lol.

So many of their free games are shit which I can't even be bothered to "buy" for free because they'd just stink the place up.

Sure I have a small library of games, but they are 99.9% crap games I don't really give a flying fuck about and wouldn't buy even on the best Steam Sale.
