They’ll be replaced by The End is Nigh and Abzu on September 5
Playdead’s Inside and Matt Makes Games’ Celeste are now free to download from the Epic Games store.
The former has a score of 87 on review aggregation site Metacritic based on 11 reviews, while the latter has a Metascore of 88 based on 17 reviews.
They’ll be free to download until Thursday September 5, when they’ll be replaced by platformer The End is Nigh, from developers Edmund McMillen and Tyler Glaiel, and Giant Squid’s underwater adventure Abzu.
Epic 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.
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, Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden, and Fez.
Epic previously said there had been more than 25 million free game installs as of May 2019.
The Epic Games store’s August update introduced cloud saves for more titles and Humble Bundle keyless integration, while giving product pages a facelift.
