The Epic Games Store gave away 89 free titles last year (down from 103 in 2020), with a combined worth of $2,120.
According to Epic, users claimed over 765 million free games in 2021. 76 free games broke their peak concurrent user records on PC, with an average of 13 times their all-time records, it claimed in January.
The Epic Game Store’s user base reached 194 million last year, up from 160 million a year earlier, the company said.
In November, Epic also acquired Rock Band and Dance Central creator Harmonix, which said it planned to “work with Epic to create musical journeys and gameplay for Fortnite”.
Epic recently filed a trademark for the ‘Epic Games Megaverse’, which could be an umbrella term for Epic’s vision for the metaverse.
