Epic Games has launched its digital distribution platform announced last night during the 2018 Game Awards with a limited selection of games on sale, including the new Supergiant Games title. Hades. Even with its generous income divided for developers, competing with Steam will be a difficult battle for Epic Games. But if there is an infallible way of getting people to your side, it's to give a lot of free stuff.
Epic announced on its website last night that from December 14 and running through 2019, the Epic Games store will give a game for free every two weeks. If the promotion ends Dec. 31, more than 25 games will be distributed to everyone who has an account.
To be clear, these are the games you would normally have to pay for Epic to be donating for free. Subnautica, an underwater survival game, currently costs $ 24.99 on Steam, but Epic Games will distribute free copies December 14-27. Super Meat Boy, the brutally difficult platformer, is close to December 28 – January 10.
Epic Games says it's "funding these free releases so you always have something new to come and check." There are very few games available in the showcase at the moment, while Epic makes deals with developers and creates its content library users will have a reason to check in at least once every two weeks.
