Epic Games is supposedly giving away 15 free games this Christmas starting on December 16th. Talk about it being the season of giving!
Previously, Epic Games have given away a load of free games, especially over Christmas. In 2019, 12 games were given away over Christmas and 15 games in 2020. So, it makes total sense that Epic Games would do the same this year.
As reported by VGC, the first free game via the Epic Game Store is believed to be Shenmue 3. This will replace Godfall Challenger Edition and Prison Architect, which are both currently free to download until December 16th.
According to the report, free games will be given away via the Epic Games Store between December 16th to December 30th. Furthermore, on December 16th, an Epic Games Store ‘End of Year’ sale is also expected to kick off, running until January 6th, 2022.
We all get free games!
The source of information is courtesy of Dealabs, who apparently has a decent track record when it comes to leaking free game offers. In the past, Dealabs has correctly leaked the PS Plus free offerings for four months in a row, as well as December’s Xbox Live Games with Gold.
However, after Shenmue 3 apparently being the first free game, at this time we do not know which games will follow. It is believed that on each of the 15 days that the free games are on offer, only one game will be available until it is replaced by another the next day.
Despite these rumours being very believable, we must take them with a pinch of salt until officially proven otherwise. That said, if each free game is available for only one day, make sure you claim them before they’re gone.
