The Epic Games Store will give away 15 free games over Christmas
Obsidian RPGs Pillars of Eternity and Tyranny are also currently free
The Epic Games Store will give away 15 games later this month, with one title set to be offered free every day from December 17-31.
Each game will only be available to claim for 24 hours, but will remain free forever once claimed.
The offer will launch alongside the Epic Games Store’s Holiday Sale, which will include discounts of up to 75%.
UPDATE 17/12/20: The Epic Games Store has launched its 15 free games promotion, starting with Cities Skylines.
ORIGINAL STORY CONTINUES: Obsidian RPGs Pillars of Eternity and Tyranny, which normally cost £31.99 and £39.99 respectively, are currently free to download until December 17.
The Epic Games Store’s free games promotion, which launched alongside the storefront in December 2018, will run throughout 2020.
Epic CEO Tim Sweeney claimed earlier this year that the promotion has caused sales to increase for developers who participate.
“People have discovered a lot of great games that way,” he told Gamespot. “It’s been a benefit for game developers.
“Most developers who launch their games for free on the store found that their sales on Steam and on console platforms actually increased after they went free on Epic because of increased awareness and so it’s been a really positive thing and it’s brought tens of millions of new users into the Epic Games ecosystem and that’s been a wonderful thing for the company.”
Epic launched Fortnite Chapter 2 – Season 5 this month alongside a new $10 monthly Fortnite subscription service.
