Epic Games Store to give away 12 free games over Christmas
Holiday Games Sale to start December 19
Epic Games Store will give away 12 free games in its Holiday Games Sale, it’s announced.
The giveaway will start on December 19 and each of the free games will be free to keep forever, Epic announced at The Game Awards on Thursday.
Update: Epic has launched its holiday sale including the 12 free games promotion. It’s also offering a $10/£10 coupon with every single purchase of $14.99/£14.99 during the sale.
Original story continues: Epic has been giving away free games on its Store platform throughout 2019, but it’s unclear if the promotion will continue in 2020.
The company originally launched a bi-monthly free game offer alongside its PC storefront in December 2018 but said in mid-May that it was increasing the frequency of the offer to one free game per week until the end of 2019.
An Epic spokesperson told VGC this week they didn’t have any plans they could share when asked if the free games promotion will be extended beyond 2019.
Titles offered for free have included Alan Wake, For Honor, Limbo, This War of Mine, Overcooked, World of Goo, Transistor, The Witness, Hyper Light Drifter, Fez, Inside, Celeste, Metro 2033 Redux, Minit and Observer.
Epic said on May 1 there had been more than 25 million free game installs. It didn’t have an updated figure to share when contacted by VGC.
