Three Free Games on Epic Games Store!
Each week, check out my latest article for the new hit game or add-on released for free from the Epic Games Store! This time around, Epic Games Store has thrown up a massive offering for follows, with three incredible games released completely free. Epic has offered great games in the past week, like the Tiny Tina standalone game, but they don’t seem content to stop there. Maybe they’re just determined to show that it’s Epic, not Steam, that’s destined to be the best games distributor in the decades ahead.
Between the 18th and 25th of November, you can grab these three games for free: - Guild of Dungeoneering (this one looks so awesome) - Kid A MNESIA Exhibition (Incredible artwork from the classic Radiohead albums) - Never Alone (will clearly make you sob).
I go into all the details in this article, so read on to learn about this epic games!
Three incredible games released completely free
The Epic Games Store has been around for a while, the lesser-known alternative to Steam, the nearly-ubiquitous platform for game purchases since it launched in 2003. But, where Steam originally existed and launched to promote Valve games, Epic Games Store launched in 2018 and quickly rose to success on the Fortnite franchise. At the time of Epic’s launch, Steam took a dramatic 30% cut from the sales of video games through their platform! This hurt both game designers and users, just wasn’t very nice. But the folks behind Epic realized something excellent: they could take a much lower cut and still have a profitable business. This led them to fast domination of the indie market, as small publishers flocked to the far better terms offered by Epic.
Epic Games Store offers some seriously incredible discounts on a regular basis, in addition to all the normal discounts one would expect on Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and the usual holidays. But the most exciting is their weekly free game or add-on, which simply harpoons all competitors.
When I first heard about this free game, I thought that can’t be real. They must only offer tiny indie games. Not at all, dear reader. Not. At. All. Epic frequently lists unbelievable A-lister games on their weekly deal, as well as sometimes offer two free games instead of one. In addition, just because a studio is smaller doesn’t mean the games it makes aren’t impressive. I’ve picked up some of my favorite new games, for free, from this platform, and most of them have been made by smaller studios (or as side-projects for teams from big studios).
