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.
  • if you missed out on a game or want to support the game through other means than Epic Store, check out the Deals link.

They will be offering a freebie weekly (previously bi-weekly). Past offerings:

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

Bump! Around 1h left before next game!

First, thanks so much for tracking these games! I was just wondering if you could add Steam store links to the tables so that I could use the RaChart Enhancer script to highlight if I already own any of the games or if I've wishlisted or ignored them on Steam. It's not really necessary for past games since they aren't free anymore, but it would be helpful for future free games.

But it's free.
Why not just get them even if you have them or hate them?

Like so? (See table). But you might want to claim them anyway as Ruphine suggests, for when Steam-DRM backends are unexpectedly offline (uncommon, but not impossible; especially sucks in Big Picture mode).

I think that's not working for Rebel Galaxy since you have the game in the HEADER of the table.

Heh. Used it as trick to make current entry bold and have a background color ;) Is there any way to easily highlight a table entry?

You can just use normal formatting?

As Gaffi said, it needs to be in a row, not the header to work. You can make the row bold, but unfortunately, you have to bold each cell individually. Also, header formatting (H1, H2, H3) doesn't seem to work inside cells. Here's a working example:

Sorry to bug you about this again. The rows aren't highlighting for the new current and upcoming games, so I started playing around with a table to see what would or wouldn't trigger the highlighting and discovered a bug (feature?) in the script. If the entire cell containing the Steam store link isn't bold, then it doesn't work. For the current game, only the title is bold, and for the upcoming game, nothing is bold, so that's why they aren't working. If you make the whole cell bold, including (at Steam, GOG), it should work.

I'm not being funny, but these games don't exactly make me want to sign up to their platform, even if they are free. These games are the type of games you see go for £1 or less in a bundle or sale, they have next to no value. I would honestly rather just get them in bundle for Steam than create an account with Epic. None of these games would be games I would instantly want to play anyway, so they would just be there in my account with 0 hours played forever, exactly like every game EA used to give away.

Setup an alarm in your phone to remind you to check every Friday for new Epic giveaways. That way you'll never miss anything again.

Well, I wrote that when they had just started offering freebies bi-weekly :-) While the Epic store existed before, until that point it mainly just had a couple of Epic titles such as Fortnite, Unreal Tournament, and Shadow Complex Remastered (this last one a freebie sept 2017).

Actually, could be an interesting new poll: What do YOU (I mean all readers, not just Khalaq) think Epic's next direction should be now that we are 6 months in?

I don't know how but I am feeling quite apathetic about logging into Epic to get the free games even though I am glutton for free and cheap games. Weird.

Anyways you guys enjoy the free games.
