The Escapists is now free to download from the Epic Games store.
Developed by Mouldy Toof Studios, the PC version of the prison escape game has a Metascore of 71 based on 24 reviews.
Normally priced at £12.99, it will be free to download until December 19 at 10.59am ET / 7.59am PT / 3.59pm UK.
Epic‘s website says The Escapists will be replaced by “more free games next week” but a spokesman wouldn’t say if the promotion will be extended to 2020.
Update: Epic has launched its holiday sale including a free game every day for 12 days. It’s also offering a $10/£10 coupon with every single purchase of $14.99/£14.99 during the sale.
Original story continues: 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.
