Here's a list of all the titles that have ever been made available for free on the Epic Games Store.

p>Since launching in 2018, the Epic Games Store has consistently released titles for free. Permitting someone creates an account on the store, they will be able to add these discounted games to their library during a small window of time. From that point on, the account holder can play these games indefinitely. Although not completely averse to the idea of changing its schedule, at the moment, the Epic Games Store releases a new free game every week, usually on Thursday.

The Epic Games Store has been able to engage more fans through its versatility in the catalog of games available. Not to forget the hype surrounding free "Mystery Games" that have been accompanying the Mega Sales of Epic Games Store for some time now. The hype is usually well-deserved, as these veiled titles usually turn out to be massive hits, like NBA 2k21 in 2021 or Grand Theft Auto 5 in 2020. Similarly, the free games available on Epic Games Store every month raises a substantial amount of hype as well, as this monthly giveaway includes some of the most exciting games available on the Store.

What are all the games that have been given away for free on Epic Game Store since 2018? What is currently free in 2022?

Epic Store's Current Free Game: Rogue Legacy & The Vanishing Of Ethan Carter

Rogue Legacy The Vanishing of Ethan Carter
Epic Store Free Period April 07 – April 14 April 07 – April 14
Developer Cellar Door Games The Astronauts
Genre Rogue-lite Adventure
Metacritic PC Score 85 82

For the next giveaways, Epic has two all-time great indie games up its sleeve, albeit ones that many people have likely played before. Rogue Legacy is an addictive rogue-lite side-scrolling platformer that is punishing but also rewarding. Spawning into a dungeon, players must find their way through the randomly generated Metroidvanian map in search of bosses in need of slaying.

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is a story-driven horror game that focuses on exploration. Players are left to investigate the town of Red Creek Valley in search of the titular boy, a journey that holds many surprises capable of eliciting a reaction, be it of fear or excitement.

Epic Store's Upcoming Free Games: Insurmountable & XCOM 2

Insurmountable XCOM 2
Epic Store Free Period April 14 – April 21 April 14 – April 21
Developer ByteRockers' Games Firaxis Games
Genre Adventure-Roguelike Turn-Based Tactics
Metacritic PC Score 74 88

For the midway point of April, Epic will be giving away two well-received games, albeit one is more famous than the other. A turn-based tactics game, XCOM 2 takes place in an alternate reality where aliens have reduced humanity to a small resistance force. As players recruit squad members and take on missions, they will have to strategically approach scenarios to ensure their team makes it out alive, as death has consequences in this game. Challenging, long, and at its best on PC, XCOM 2 is a fantastic title with few peers in its genre.

Insurmountable is a mountaineering game with randomly generated locations. As the climber, players have to manage a few meters to ensure they survive the trip. The game presents the mountain in a hexagonal grid, giving the gameplay a strategic element to it.
