- Epic Games Store users can expect the free game giveaways to continue, with Sail Forth being the next game available from January 11 to January 18.
- Love, an indie platformer with a short playthrough time, is rumored to be the free game for January 18 to January 25.
- Fans should approach the rumor with caution as it is only 80% certain that Love will be the free game, and plans could potentially change.
The Epic Games Store free game for the week of January 18 to January 25 is rumored to be 2014 indie game Love, according to a recent rumor. Epic Games Store users are coming off the high of the free mystery game giveaway, where they were able to log in to the launcher every day to snag a new free game for their digital libraries.
The Epic Games Store free mystery game giveaway’s final game is Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, up for grabs until Thursday, January 11 at 10am CST. While most of the Epic Games Store free mystery games were given away on a daily basis, the first free mystery game, Destiny 2: Legacy Collection, and the last free mystery game, the previously mentioned Guardians of the Galaxy, were made available for a week instead of a one day.
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.
When Guardians of the Galaxy is cycled out of the Epic Games Store free games lineup, it will be replaced by Sail Forth, which will be available from January 11 to January 18. When it’s not doing its free mystery game giveaways, the Epic Games Store gives its users advanced notice about what free games they can look forward to from one week to the next, meaning that come Sail Forth being free on January 11, fans will know for sure what they will get on January 18. Epic Games Store users will have to wait until January 11 to learn what the January 18 free game will be, but reliable leaker billbil-kun has claimed that there is an 80% chance the free game will be Love.
Epic Games Store Free Games for January 2024
- Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy (January 4 – January 11)
- Sail Forth (January 11 – January 18)
- Love (January 18 – January 25) – Rumored
Love is an indie platformer with a retro art style that was first released in 2014. Love earned mixed to negative reviews from critics, with most letdown by its extremely short length. It does have a “Very Positive” rating on Steam, however. According to How Long to Beat, a single playthrough of Love can be completed in just 34 minutes. Those going for 100% completion will be looking at 10.5 hours according to the data collected by the same site, but that’s still not all that long. Love does have a level editor for added replay value, though, and its short length would really only be a detriment to those that paid money for the game. Since it’s free, perhaps Epic Games Store users will be more forgiving towards Love and be able to see it in a different light.
Of course, this is assuming that Love is indeed the Epic Games Store free game for January 18 to January 25. While billbil-kun has proven extremely reliable in the past, they themselves admit that they are only 80% certain that Love will be the free game that week, so fans should keep their expectations in check. It’s relatively common for the Epic Games Store free games to leak ahead of time, but plans could change.
