Epic Games Store Drops a Controller-Blasting Bomb: 17 Free Games in 17 Days!

Epic Games Store Drops a Controller-Blasting Bomb: 17 Free Games in 17 Days!

The battle between the Epic Games Store and Steam for gaming supremacy continues, and Epic is pulling out all the stops with a generous “17 Days of Free Games” campaign. This holiday season, starting December 14th, Epic will offer a different free game every day for 24 hours. Once claimed, the game is yours to keep forever.

While the exact lineup remains a mystery, Epic often drops hints and online communities have a knack for deciphering them. Leaks also provide clues, but with mixed accuracy (remember the Red Dead Redemption 2 fiasco last year?).

To help you manage your expectations, here’s a glimpse of last year’s festive freebie bonanza:

  • December 16: Horizon Chase Turbo
  • December 17: Costume Quest 2
  • December 18: Sable
  • December 19: Them’s Fightin’ Herds
  • December 20: Wolfenstein: The New Order
  • December 21: LEGO Builder’s Journey
  • December 22: Fallout, Fallout 2, and Fallout Tactics
  • December 23: Encased
  • December 24: Metro: Last Light Redux
  • December 25: DEATH STRANDING DIRECTOR’S CUT
  • December 26: F.I.S.T.: Forged In Shadow Torch
  • December 27: Severed Steel
  • December 28: Mortal Shell
  • December 29: Dishonored – Definitive Edition / Eximius: Seize the Frontline
  • With such a generous offering, Epic is making a strong case for players to switch sides. While Steam still enjoys the upper hand due to established traditions and a vast library, Epic’s strategic giveaways are proving to be a compelling alternative.

So, mark your calendars and get ready to grab some free games! Who knows, maybe this year’s surprise will be even bigger than DEATH STRANDING DIRECTOR’S CUT.
