Will you consider the Epic Game Store your new default library?
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?
The 1st one, thanks.
Yes i try to use the store link to add the game but since when i press it, he ask me to download the client son finally i install the client just to check if the game was added to my library.
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.
Not available yet!
Super Meat Boy giveaway is now live
Subnautica is gone from free grab
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.
Have they revealed what's the next game?
Not yet and I'm curious, too. :)
Here's hoping for something like Firewatch.
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.
Where did you find this info? :D
I must be blind, can't seem to find that info XD
It's not on Epic's official account. But this guy is one of those responsible for the store (he is also the person behind Steamspy).
Super meat boy gets a pass
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.
Holy mother of games D:
Nice, another wishlist game. Not a big fan of having a bunch of launchers, but as long as I can launch it through Playnite I really can't complain.
Wow, quite the solid selection of freebies so far.
Nice :) I'm thinking INSIDE will be a part of this...
What Remains of Edith Finch available
the jackbox party -- 24 feb
I'm a way more loyal customer of EPIC than I thought I'd be.
I own 3 games on there so far.
Don't question my loyalty just because they were free!
If you were a truly loyal customer, you would have 4, early adopter Shadow Complex represent. ;)
You're right. I am shamefaced.
Do not forget Fortnite & Unreal Tournament! Both free and add +1 each to your lib.
Oh yeah...gotta go pwn some 8 year olds.
Shit, I think I still have that key in my HB library :D
You can also get 147 game assets and game-making tools from their store -- also for free. ;)
The value just doesn't end! :D

Edith Finch available now, next Jackbox Party XD
Like Origin is Epic now my second free game dumpster. :D
I'm glad I did not buy it from steam, now I can play it for free on epic. So I will never buy from steam because I already played it ¯_(ツ)_/¯
Bump since I just saw this and was about to make a thread :')
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.
Maybe you should googling about Epic Games Store first?
must be very confusing to you navigate these forums with all these threads talking about a very wide variety of matters...
we need a script T_T
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.
Sees free copy of What Remains of Edith Finch
Haha, exactly. I guess I might consider downloading the Epic client for this game, heard it's a decent walking sim :)
Ah! So the first step to damnation has been taken.
What's next? Will you join www.epicgifts.com?
Ofc. As soon as CG creates Consolegifts.com and Uplaygifts.com I'll sign up as well!
Why is our kitty so sulky?
Didn't receive thanks from Christmas giveaway :(
Ayyy new game on Epic. Claimed. Thanks.
