Just one free game at Epic this week, but its one that's been on my wishlist for quite a while now. For The King, a turn based RPG with roguelike elements-all expansions may be included as well.

Just a bit of a heads up for the free games that start tomorrow, Epic for just this one month for now is requiring 2-Step authorization on its free games It's a quick and easy process to set up by phone or email-just have to enter the code they send to get your free games. You can also use an authenticator if you use one:

Epic Games Store Now Requires Two-Factor Authentication To Claim Free Games, Here's Why | HotHardware

One of the free games tomorrow will be Amnesia, not sure off the top of my head what the other will be.

Not sure how assiduously they're enforcing that 2FA requirement, FWIW.

Yeah I thought it odd that they were only using it for a month-maybe they are just testing it? I've not downloaded either game this week so I can't say if it was required for me or not

Put this in the Epic Thread, because I think Early Access to this game might only be at Epic starting the 5th. Quill19 takes a look at Old World, a new civ game with a twist by Soren Johnson, Lead Designer on Civ 4.

The twist? Every turn last a year and your original leader will not survive as the years pass. So a bit of Crusader Kings succession thrown in:

Death Rising, a linear puzzle game where you try to collect souls is the free game at Epic this week. Stay tuned for next week's free game as they are only listing it as Mystery game at this point, so it could be something big.

Well the time has come and gone for when this big free game was supposed to be available but Epic (shocking!) is having problems with its service. Rumors continue to say that the game will be Grand Theft Auto V. They have another mystery game set for next week.

Looks like the rumors are correct.

Yep it does. GTA 5 Premium Edition with includes Online and 1 DLC. Amusingly enough the launcher was in Russian (some had Spanish). But reboot if that happens and you should be able to download the English Version.

I'm hoping its Borderlands. Civ VI would be a bit of a surprise as the game isn't even offered for sale right now at Epic that I can see. Not sure the other two are either.

Just wanted to bump this because I saw on Twitter that even getting the free game, Grand Theft Auto V, quallifies to get a $10 coupon off another Epic store game over $15. So I got the coupon without downloading GTA on Epic because I already have it elsewhere. And from what I can see the coupon is good until nov 1 and will be automatically added when you buy a game there for over $15.

If you use it before this sale ends on Jun 1, you will get another $10 coupon. Games like Outward (which I used this coupon on in the past), Journey to the Savage Planet, Control, etc.

Also I noticed that My Time at Portia is $12 during the sale too.

Not quite. Everybody gets to claim a free coupon to start things off. GTA V will trigger it, but the coupon can be claimed even if you don't claim GTA.

I have now seen that list rumored too bob. That would be pretty crazy to get Civ 6 for free.

One addition to the $10 coupon sale, Witcher 3 is for sale and with the coupon you can get it for $5. That might be the steal of the sale minus the free games of course.

Civ 6 is indeed the free game this week at Epic. They have the expansions available too, but at normal price for now so not a good prospect for the $10 coupon. I noticed you get at least one extra civ (Aztec?) with this version of Civ 6 and maybe one more.

There is also a new season pass for Civ 6 available for $40 which will get you several DLC's that they will release this year and next. Several of those have new game modes but you most likely will need one of the expansions to play them.

Some people over on Steam were reporting that the game pass was preventing them from loading the expansions and other issues, so I might wait a couple days for an update.

Borderlands 2:The Handsome Collection is the new Free game at Epic. This one is massive-contains the base game, the pre-sequel and every (?) DLC that came out for them.

I was looking at the info page at Epic for this and it says Coming Soon. So probably won't be free

ARK: Survival Evolved is supposed to be the free game at Epic later today. I'll be away from the computer a bit right then, so if its not, if somebody would post about it that would be much appreciated.

Well 3 out of 4 correct isn't bad I guess. Looks like they might be keeping future free games a secret too, so could come up next week.

The new free game at Epic this week is indeed ARK: Survival Evolved, and something called Samurai Showdown, a collection of 6 martial arts fighting games it looks like

New games at Epic this week are:

AER, an adventure game where you transform into a bird and navigate your way through floating islands.

Stranger Things 3 based off the third season of the TV show appears to be a pixel graphics RPG based on events in this season. I've not watched an episode, so can't tell you anything more about the game.

Why do you think epic games makes such gifts? Luring customers out of steam?
this porn site must be in the epic game store https://bestfreehdporn.pro
the quality of the content is better than in games and the plot is much more interesting

Origin pretty much did the same thing when it launched.

What's fun is I have never once checked the box for 'share my contact info.'

So I'm not sure what it is they're harvesting.

Some do, which is one thing. They also now have you with an account which you have to use their launcher to play the free game, so they can directly advertise to you. I am also sure they can collect general data (average use of games per user. How often users log in, etc.) that can be used and even sold. Number of different benefits.

I only ever log in to claim the free games, with the exceptions of my purchases of Hades and Old World. So, y'know, they can sell THAT data all they want.

But I've still never checked the box authorizing them to share my email address with the publishers of the free games, so...

Again, maybe I should wasn't clear. It is advertising their site. You bought games from them, and they got what they want. For every person that they lose money on (and I am sure they are paying a very small amount for the games they give away) they are making much more on game purchases. Selling info is a much smaller income stream than actual game purchases.

Two free games this week at Epic:

1-3 out of 10-an animated adventure game set at the world's worst video games studio.

2-Wilmot's Warehouse-a puzzle game where you have to keep a warehouse in tip-top shape, so when customer orders come in you know just where to go to find them

It's looking like next week's free games may include Remnant From the Ashes, so you'll want to check for that then.

Most of the Epic free games I have no interest in, but Remnant from the Ashes is one I have thought about buying a few times.

Talk about bad timing: I won a copy of this and its DLC a couple of weeks ago, I haven't played it much because it barely runs on my graphics card/memory challenged computer, but seems like an interesting setting.
