Seems Epic Games will be promoting the new direction they're taking for their store
https://store.epicgames.com

Notes:

  • these are not Steam keys, and you'll need to create/have an Epic Games account.
  • you can add the games to your library from the store web page
  • you'll need to download and install the games through the Epic Games Launcher to play.

They will be offering a freebie every two weeks, starting with:

Game Rating Free between Store Link
Subnautica 87% metacritic (more) 14-dec-2018 - 27-dec-2018 [ENDED] Epic Games Store - Subnautica
Super Meat Boy 87% metacritic (more) 28-dec-1018 - 10-jan-2019 [ENDED] Epic Games Store - Super Meat Boy
What Remains of Edith Finch 89% metacritic (more) 10-jan-2019 - 24-jan-2019 Epic Games Store - What Remains of Edith Finch
The Jackbox Party Pack 78% metacritic (xb1) (more) 24-jan-2019 - 7-feb-2019 no store link yet

Will you consider the Epic Game Store your new default library?

View Results
Never, I'll stick to Steam thank you very much
Maybe, if I get enough freebies to get me started
Sure, if they will let me link my Steam profile to bootstrap my collection
Why not another store indeed, if the prices are right

Installing the Epic Launcher is mandatory right? I mean we cant just add the games to our libraries from the web page for further play it?

Use the store link and add the game. It will show up here I didnt install launcher.

Or did you mean that you want to play the game without launcher?

So Meat boy tomorrow. Wonder what will pop up after Meat boy? Anybody venture a guess? Hope it's one of those "coming soon" ones, like Rebel Galaxy.

I think Journey could be one of those free games. It's old enough but it also would be "new" to Pc players, and the only way to get it would be via Epic store.

I truly doubt Journey will be free since it cost money to port the game to PC

I doubt it but the new walking dead maybe. I guess Skybound would like to make some money on future sales but they did stop sales on steam to go on Epic so it is a possibility.

I'm not hoping for much. Subnautica for free was unbelievable. Super Meat Boy... not so much. Great game, don't get wrong, but it's super cheap basically every sale. Maybe they have something in their sleeve, but if that's the case, I'm not sure why are they hiding it (considering they want to attract as many people as possible).

New freebie every two weeks for a year, I expect they will spread out the big ones with a few stinkers in between (;

Just a reminder. Should be a little over 9 hours from now to get the next free game, IIRC.

Click on the Library tab to the left in the client. If it shows there, it's added to your account.

Giving away an old game that's been bundled to hell? (Meat Boy)
Subnautica is cool but I'm thinking its a move to boost playerbase since that games is pretty dead?

Subnautica is indeed pretty dead, I never met even one other player. Might be because it is a 100% single player game though. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Thanks for the update! In case my experience might be helpful to others: When I had tried adding the game directly from Epic's storefront, the button to get the game never appeared despite my going back to the homepage and clicking to Super Meat Boy's page repeatedly. However, I was able to get the game through your direct link to Super Meat Boy.

my guess would be rebel galaxy(the first game), walking dead final season ep1 or shadow complex(since it was previously given for free).
I hope I'm wrong

They wanted to reveal it today, but they got some wrong image for the banner. So the announcement is delayed till the developer sends the correct image.

They put up what is the next free game.
It is What remains of Edith Finch
Right now the game is not even on the epic store so it might launch on the store with 0$ price :)

Awesome game! Quite new and with very good reviews! I don't know how they convince developers to giveaway their games on this new store. There must be a lot of money at stake!

Don't worry. Epic is super rich. I've heard that they earned around 3 billion US in profit (2018 only).

That's another big one. I must say, as much as I hate having yet another launcher, I can't really complain when they're giving games like these.

Indeed. As they say, "if it's for free it's for me". Well, at least if it's not trash anyway.

While I'll probably still end up buying it on Steam eventually because of my sweet, sweet achievements and trading cards, Edith Finch is still good enough to warrant creating an Epic Store account. Let's see if it actually does live up to the hype.

Though in retrospect it seems Epic Games wants to be associated with faceless humans, between this promotion and becoming the home of Ashen.

These are not steam keys but posted on steamgifts?? Personally I had no idea what Epicgames or launcher was. Signed up only to realize no steam key. Would be better if title was; [Not Steam] Free game, etc.

Valid point. I would add those tags, but alas the title cannot be longer and I would like it to advertise both current and future games. I did add a note in the description about the requirements though.
