The Epic Games Store’s next free titles have been announced
Absolute Drift and Rage 2 will replace Halcyon 6
Next week’s free Epic Games Store titles have been revealed.
Absolute Drift, Funselektor Labs’ racing game about becoming a master at the art of drifting, and Rage 2, the post-apocalyptic shooter from id Software and Avalanche Studios, will be free to download from February 18-25.
They will replace Halcyon 6: Lightspeed Edition, a retro space strategy RPG from Massive Damage, which normally costs £10.99 but is currently free to download until February 18.
An Epic Games Store spring showcase event is scheduled to take place on Thursday. A Twitch stream kicking off at 11am PT/2pm ET/7pm GMT promises to deliver “a curated collection of exciting new announcements, gameplay, developer insights and more”.
Launching alongside the event and running for two weeks will be the Epic Games Store Showcase Sale.
Featured discounts will include Star Wars: Squadrons (40% off), SnowRunner (up to 40% off), Cyberpunk 2077 (10% off), Assassin’s Creed Valhalla (up to 20% off) and Hades (20% off).
Epic claimed in January that the Epic Games Store had attracted over 160 million PC users since launching in December 2018.
The company has been giving away free titles on a weekly basis since the marketplace launched, including 103 games in 2020, collectively worth $2,407 based on US prices. Epic said users claimed over 749 million free titles last year.
