Throughout 2019, the Epic Games Store has been offering free games to its users on a consistent basis. This programme was promised to run until the end of 2019. As the year is coming to a close, Epic appears to be giving the programme one last hurrah, with 12 games being offered – one every day until the end of 2019.
The Epic Games Store free game programme initially began in December 2018. The programme was offering one free game to Epic Games Store users every two weeks. Starting in May, however, the programme was expanded, with free games being offered on a weekly basis instead.
The programme was only promised to run until the end of 2019, and there has been no talk of it continuing in 2020. In honour of the Christmas holidays, and the programme potentially ending, the Epic Games Store will be offering one free game every day until the end of the year, for a total of 12 free games.
The 12 days will begin on the 19th of December and will conclude on the 31st. None of the games have been announced yet, but Epic have been known to offer some relatively big titles for free in the past, such as Celeste, Alan Wake, and For Honor. All you’ll need in order to receive these free games is to have an Epic Games account, and ‘purchase’ the games when they become available. The games will then remain in your library for as long as you own that account.
Until the 19th of December, Epic Games is offering two free games that you can get right now. The Escapists and The Wolf Among Us, are currently available for free. They can be ‘purchased’ for free until the 19th of December, when they will be replaced by the first of the 12 free games.
