The Epic Games Store’s next free titles have been announced.
Post-apocalyptic city-building game Surviving the Aftermath, and Earthlock, an adventure RPG inspired by the classic 3D RPGs of the late 1990s, will be free to claim on Epic’s PC marketplace from November 16-23.
In a bid to take market share, Epic has offered game makers a more generous revenue split than Steam, with 88% of sales going to developers.
Epic has also spent heavily to secure major third-party timed exclusive releases, and has invested millions on its weekly free game giveaways.
In August it announced a new Epic Games Store exclusivity scheme. The Epic First Run programme allows developers of any size to claim 100% of revenue if they agree to make their game exclusive on the Epic Games Store for six months.
Another Epic Games Store scheme which sees developers getting a 100% revenue share for the first six months by bringing their older titles to the marketplace was revealed last month.
In September, Epic announced plans to lay off around 830 employees, or 16% of its total workforce.
