Epic Games store offers free games every two weeks

The Epic Games store launched with a solid lineup of indie titles including Hades and Ashen.

The Epic Games store is officially live, and as an added bonus for creating an account and shopping there, gamers can get free games every two weeks. The first games on offer are Subnautica, which is free from December 14 through December 27, and Super Meat Boy, which is free from December 28 through January 10.

It’s free to create an Epic Games account and use the Epic Games launcher to play games, meaning you have no reason not to redeem these offers. Additionally, the store is full of interesting indie titles including the newest game from Supergiant, Hades, and Ashen from A44. We recently started playing Hades in Early Access, and we have to say it’s well worth the $19.99 purchase price.

What’s more, it’s currently exclusive to the Epic Games store, so you can’t get it anywhere else. Curious what else is available from the Epic Games store? Below, we’ve listed the current lineup of titles!

  • Hades
  • Ashen
  • Hello Neighbor: Hide & Seek
  • Fortnite

Other games are listed as “Coming Soon” including the following:

  • Subnautica
  • Super Meat Boy Forever
  • Darksiders III
  • Satisfactory
  • Rebel Galaxy Outlaw
  • Outer Wilds
  • Journey
  • Man Eater
  • World War Z
  • Genesis Alpha One
  • Shadow Complex Remastered
  • Unreal Tournament

Epic Games launched their store with a generous revenue split where developers can retain 88% of sales. As many have noted, this could encourage indie developers to pull away from the current reigning PC platform, Steam. While some have complained about having games split between several different locations, others have praised Epic Games for giving indie developers an opportunity to make more money from their work.
