The Epic Games Store reveals its ninth free mystery game that it's giving away as part of its countdown to the new year.

p>As has become a December tradition, the Epic Games Store is giving away a new free game every day as a way to count down to the new year. This year's festivities kicked off when the Epic Games Store gave away Shenmue 3 for free on December 16, and it has continued with other free games like Remnant: From the Ashes, Loop Hero, and others. The new Epic Games Store free game is made available every day at 10:00am CT, replacing the previously available free game in the process.

So as of December 24, the Epic Games Store free games is Pathfinder: Kingmaker - Enhanced Plus Edition, replacing the previously-available Vampyr. Pathfinder: Kingmaker - Enhanced Plus Edition was funded on Kickstarter and developed by Owlcat Games. It's an isometric RPG inspired by the likes of Baldur's Gate or the original Fallout games, set in the Pathfinder universe that may be familiar to fans of tabletop RPGs.

Pathfinder: Kingmaker - Enhanced Plus Edition comes with a variety of bonuses that weren't available in the original release, including quality of life improvements, new abilities, a new class, new items, improved balance, bug fixes, and more. It's pretty much the definitive way to experience the game, and so anyone interested should claim it now while it's free through the Epic Games Store. Come 10am CT on December 25, it will be removed and replaced with a new free game.

The Epic Games Store free game for December 25 has not been officially announced, and fans won't know what it is with 100% certainty until 10:00am CT that day rolls around. However, there have been legitimate Epic Games Store mystery game leaks that have proven true so far. Assuming the leak is completely accurate, then it seems like fans can expect the December 25 free game to be none other than Prey.

Prey is the 2017 reboot of the FPS Prey franchise, with this one developed by Arkane Studios and published by Bethesda. Prey earned mostly positive reviews at the time of its release, and it will stand as one of the more significant free games given away during the mystery game promotion, assuming the leaks are true.

While Epic Games Store users may be excited at the possibility of getting Prey for free, they can snag Pathfinder: Kingmaker - Enhanced Plus Edition for their collection in the meantime.
