- The Epic Games Store will continue its weekly free game giveaways throughout 2024, as confirmed by a reliable leaker.
- Some PC gamers have been hesitant to use the Epic Games Store due to missing features compared to Steam.
- The store has already given away four games in January 2024, indicating that the free game program will continue as predicted.
It seems as though the Epic Games Store free game giveaways will continue throughout 2024, at least according to reliable leaker billbil-kun. One of the key strategies that the Epic Games Store has used to compete with Steam is by giving away free games on a weekly basis. This gives PC gamers a good reason to not only download the Epic Games Store launcher, but return to it regularly to claim their freebies.
Some PC gamers have refused to use the Epic Games Store as they don’t like the practice of EGS exclusives and would rather have their game library all in one place. The Epic Games Store is also missing some key features that gamers enjoy on Steam, though they have been gradually added over time, like achievements, for instance. In any case, the Epic Games Store isn’t giving up on bringing as many people to its launcher as possible, and so it will continue giving away free games throughout 2024.
Epic Games Store: A Comprehensive List Of Every Free Game It’s Had To Date
Here’s a list of all the titles that have ever been made available for free on the Epic Games Store.
This was backed up by billbil-kun, an insider who has accurately leaked information about the Epic Games Store. They said that according to their latest investigations, “Epic Games Store will continue to give away free games every week” for 2024. The Epic Games Store itself hasn’t made any kind of official announcement about its free game plans for 2024, but it has already started giving away free games for users to add to their digital libraries.
So far, four games have been given away to Epic Games Store users in January 2024, indicating that billbil-kun’s information is correct and the free game giveaways will indeed continue this year. The first Epic Games Store free game given away in January 2024 was co-op puzzle game Escape Academy, which was free from January 1 to January 2. Escape Academy was followed by 20 Minutes Till Dawn from January 2 to January 3, and then A Plague Tale: Innocence from January 3 to January 4. A Plague Tale: Innocence was the final daily free game given away as part of the latest mystery game promotion, as the current Epic Games Store free game, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, is free until January 11.

With the Epic Games Store free mystery game promotion done, EGS users can expect to get a heads-up about the next free games from one week to the next. It’s already been announced that Sail Forth will be the free Epic Games Store game from January 11 to January 18. And while the January 18 to January 25 free game has not been officially announced at the time of this writing, billbil-kun has put forth a possible candidate.
In the same post where they claimed the Epic Games Store free games will continue to be given away in 2024, billbil-kun said that that there’s an 80% chance Love will be free on the Epic Games Store from January 18 to January 25. Fans will find out if that prediction is true come January 11 when Sail Forth replaces Guardians of the Galaxy and the Epic Games Store free game for January 18 is officially revealed.
