The Epic Games Store gave away over 15 games in the second half of last month, with titles offered free every day from December 16-30.
They included Control, Shenmue 3, Neon Abyss, Remnant: From the Ashes, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, Loop Hero, Second Extinction, Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden, Vampyr, Pathfinder: Kingmaker, Prey and the Tomb Raider reboot trilogy.
In an article published on VGC last year, Ampere analyst Louise Shorthouse questioned whether Epic’s game giveaways were sustainable in the long term.
Last November, Epic Games announced that it had acquired Rock Band and Dance Central creator Harmonix “to create musical journeys and gameplay for Fortnite”.
Earlier this month, it was claimed that Paramount has signed a deal with Epic to bring some of its characters to Fortnite, including the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
