Epic Games Store has been offering free games on a weekly basis since 2019 and throughout 2020. It’s safe to say it’s still ongoing for now so yay! They’re definitely winning over gamers. How many? I can’t tell for sure but they’ve won me over as I used to think that Steam is THE platform to purchase games.

Is there a catch?

Nope! None at all. The free games are truly free with no strings attached. All you need to do is to register for an Epic Games account (ironically I signed up for an account with my Steam account LOL) and follow the instruction to download the Epic Games launcher. That’s it! They don’t even ask for your credit card details.

As far as I know, the free games they offer are not just indie games or unpopular ones. They throw in some pretty good stuff like Triple-A good stuff. While they may not be the latest releases but hey, why would I complain about free games? I’ve spent enough on gaming as it is so I welcome any free games I could get my hands on.

Below is the list of free games that have been offered up until the current ones. I’ll do my best to update it when they have the latest addition. I’m not always glued to their website to check out the free games like some sort of cheapskates, ya know. Heck! Who am I kidding? Of course I am!
