Will you consider the Epic Game Store your new default library?
they making wwz free before it launches on steam :o?
oh epic won me with nuclear throne and world war z... definitively.
Next week Gone Home and HoB
This comment was deleted 2 months ago.
Hob is an 3rd Person puzzle-platformer.
Played the demo on switch and liked it a lot. I only didn't bought it because of the "leak" in december.
Gone Home is a walking sim.
Gone Home is more like a first-person story point-and-click, although technically you are walking :)
Hob looks fun, is on the wishlist.
Played it, finished it. It did not disappoint! Get yours while it is hot!
After downloading & giving WWZ a try, I see now why it's being given away for free. Holy shit that game is bad.
I tried it and quickly switched back to L4D2 :)
"Drawful 2" is now also free to grab on Epic.
Totally Reliable Delivery Service base game is Free on Epic store.
Thanks for the info!
dionw thank you for your thread.
I have a suggestion about the title: maybe you should trade [EGS] for [EPIC], [EGS] is more accurate but [EPIC] is handier.
In Deals, search for "EGS" give 3 results.
In Deals, search for "EPIC" give 57 results. (somes of the results are not related to EGS but are STEAM names of bundle or DLC)
This has worked for over a year - change it now and it will just cause confusion :)
Actually I used [Epic Games] before and used [EGS] this once :) Sometimes it is a little hard to find enough space in the title to summarize everything I want to convey. This week's kinda okay though.
Oh well... guess I never paid much attention to it :D
I thought the title change would confuse the script bookmarking it, but I suppose that would've been a problem with different games being up for sale too then - so yeah, never mind me ;)
yeah, interestingly enough you can delete the entire article name from the bookmark and it still works, I guess the id is used:
How about removing "Not Steam"? I don't think it'll cause much confusion.
"Epic Games" / "EPIC" etc would be highly recognised by now.
I know... that tag mainly serves those who would be disappointed there are no Steam keys for grabs. This is mainly a Steam gifts site after all, although the deals section has clearly evolved in this regard :)
Next free game: https://www.epicgames.com/store/product/sherlock-holmes-crimes-and-punishments/home
its Sherlock ! so good
Strange that the only free title this week is not general public... Usually when they have a mature title, they offer something else.
Indeed, they added Close to the Sun :)
tagged "gore" and "violent" on steam
so I dunno...
One free DLC for TABS
Almost missed Hob, didn't realize they added it since I last checked.
So bump for anyone else who may want it but haven't grabbed it yet.
This week's titles are up:
Close to the Sun :o heck yeah!
edit: damn, those reviews/scores...
Trailer does seem promising. Yet, the reviews all seem to unanimously point to the same issue... seems likely the developers are seeking a broader audience, and possibly even some momentum to provide an add-on and overturn the ratings.
next week Just Cause 4 and Wheels of Aurelia
Next week we get Just Cause 4 wohoooo
Good Game ,.... now we`re talking epic
do you know the purpose of bump?
no, tell me? ;)
to turn inactive thread into active.
There is no point of bumping a thread that is active anyway
This thread is active every Thursday 5PM and people write here. Even you wrote a post a few seconds before your "bump"
Clear case of whooosh! :)
fun fact: we have now had 3 epic exclusives made free: World War Z, Totally Reliable Delivery Service, and now Close to the Sun
Nooo, I missed Totally Reliable Delivery Service :(
Wow, Just Cause 4 for free. That was totally unexpected but highly welcomed :).
Next free games (Steam links):
Both with mixed ratings. Will we get Just Cause 4 infected with Denuvo as the Steam version?
Just Cause 4 is Denuvo infected. Updated Denuvo version too (compared to Steam). EXE size is doubled from Steam version up to 520MB !!!.
Thanks, I was going to ask if someone had already installed this version to check it.
i just consider epic games as my second games library.
their giveaway is VERY GOOD. and seems good platform..
Just Cause 4 and Wheels of Aurelia free now. Next game: For The King.
It was delayed for three months
Yeah, I thought to myself: Didnt they already do this giveaway. But now when you mentioned it I guess they skipped it until now.
Thanks, just saw it when I scrolled down. :)
Probably miscounted BUT my Epic library has now about 100 games solely from their free giveaways (haven't missed one so far), pretty neat.
yeah just over 100
I think that I didn't miss any of these giveaways, I'm sure that I didn't add any F2P/+1 game, and my bank account is one hundred percent certain, I didn't buy anything.
Unless I missed something, today they just gave the 99th and 100th free games ! Yey ! I still haven't played any of them though.
Edit : Ninja-ed :(
I'm gonna call it now; Just Cause 4 will be in Humble Choice in a few months and everyone will complain how it was free on Epic.
People still complain too much over Epic to be bothered by this
I doubt it, more people prefer steam keys over EGS so people won't complain too much, but if you get an EGS key from humble monthly then people will be on fire.
Very nice to get the newest Just Cause for free :)
I really enjoyed the previous two so as long as this one keeps the good gameplay experience I'm satisfied.
For anyone of you with problems when launching JC4, there are apparently working on a fix. Until then is possible to play the game if you turn your internet off.
heh, new form of anti-cheat so you can't look up stuff ;)
