The Epic Games Store’s new free title is Borderlands 3, with another ‘mystery game’ due next week
The loot shooter replaces Prey, Jotun: Valhalla Edition and Redout: Enhanced Edition
This week’s free Epic Games Store title is Borderlands 3.
Titles included in the store’s regular free games promotion are usually revealed a week before they’re made available, but last week Epic kept the identity of the latest one secret.
Borderlands 3 replaces Prey, Jotun: Valhalla Edition and Redout: Enhanced Edition, which were free to download from June 12-19.

The inclusion of Gearbox‘s loot shooter in the Epic Games Store’s weekly free game promotion marks the first of “four weeks of blockbuster free tentpole games” being offered. Next week’s free title will also be a mystery game.
The Epic Games Store has also launched its ‘Mega Sale 2022’. It includes discounts of up to 75% on over 1,600 games and add-ons, plus unlimited 25% off coupons on eligible purchases.
The promotion will run for four weeks until June 16 at 8am PT / 11am ET / 4pm BST.
Epic announced on Monday that Fall Guys will be going free-to-play on June 21. On the same date, the game will be released for Nintendo Switch and Xbox consoles and be made available via the Epic Games Store.
In an update on another of the publisher’s upcoming products last week, developer Remedy confirmed that Alan Wake 2 won’t be shown this summer, although it is still on track to be released in 2023.
It also revealed that Alan Wake Remastered will be released for Nintendo Switch this autumn.
