Will you consider the Epic Game Store your new default library?
Nice freebies, already have the Arkham games but not the Lego ones.
Does anybody knows if Arkham Knight includes the DLCs or if is just the base game? I'm missing most DLC on steam for that one so that would be an excuse to install the epic version instead if I ever get around to playing it again.
From PCGamer: "You can grab the Batman games here on the Epic Games Store up until September 26th. It's worth noting that—while Arkham Asylum and Arkham City are the GOTY editions bundling all DLC—Arkham Knight's DLC is not only not in the bundle, but also not available through the Epic Games Store."
Aw, that's quite the oversight on their part, and kinda odd for them to not even offer the DLC.
Welp no reason to ever install that version over the steam one then, thanks for the info :)
Season pass is included.
Have you installed it? Or did they update the info?
It got updated to version 1.7
Ah, thanks for the info :)
Oh shit, Epic hits hard! I remember last time i checked, the Stick-to-Steam percentage on the poll is much higher in the past, now its only 48% left
I have steam since Half Life 2 from the collectors edition...Believe me in all those years,never i say NEVER i had anything for free...and i have 662 games,yes some of them are free from sites and hb but man epic does the job...gives the candy to the baby....from me is a thumbs up....
If you've had steam for that long then you certainly saw Team Fortress 2 go free.
If you missed everything else then you've not really being paying attention as there's been hundreds of games be free in that time, I mean Dirt was free about a week ago....L4D2 was free for like two weeks in 2011 or something.
This comment was deleted 4 weeks ago.
I can't quite give exact numbers (cos I'm feeling lazy) but in the 6 years I've been on steam I got at least a couple dozen freebies straight from the store and a few were AAA titles.
sorry but tf2 is not even close to Batman/torchlight/alan wake etc add to this the numbers...1 to 2 games per week!
Also keep in mind that the games WASn't from steam!it was from the publishers and developers of the games....DON't confuss this...dirt was from codemasters not Steam...
Ehh... sure but the way you phrased your comment it sounds like you're not talking about the freebies comming from valve themselves but rather about getting free games at all on steam and that's simply not acurate. Yes, most promotional free stuff on steam was given away by publishers or devs but there actually were games given away directly through steam instead of using a 3rd party site.
Also as the other guy said L4D2 was free for a limited time and that came from valve.
I don't critisize the fact that epic is giving away games by paying for them themselves, that's really nice (specially compared to their other less consumer friendly strategies to capture a piece of the market). But again, your comment was innacurate.
I mean Axel beat me to it but your comment was nothing to do with quality, you said you never got any freebies from steam which just wasn't true.
Team Fortress 2 at the time was one of the biggest titles on steam for play time and popularity. L4D2 is perhaps one of the best co-op games ever made.
Add to that the plethora of games they've given away for free over the years which dwarves Epic.
Its good Epic are doing this, but it certainly won't get me to move to their store. Good for them and im glad people are getting these new games, for me though Epic store was DOA.
Have they fixed cloud saves?
Is there a plan to monitor playtime? I like to have that.
You can see your gametime.Click on the gear of a game when it's installed in your library and it says " You've Played X" at the bottom of the list.
I bought every single one of them on Steam and console and they're worth every single penny. For redundancy purposes, I'm glad I now have them on another platform as well. Epic hits hard this time around with an amazing collection of great games for the incredible price of free. Kudos.
For those that never played them, don't let them be another +6 to your library. Play them and you won't regret!
I just noticed they also added a search option for the library section which is a must have imo. Now, the search option combined with the list view makes their launcher actually usable.
Saw Batman Arkham Knight Season pass was free, horray! Had the game on Steam for ages and just been waiting for the season pass to get a good discount...
Then saw it was only for the Epic Store :(
The Arkham Knight Season Pass isn't included in this free promo. It should be up for sale on the store soon though.
The season pass is free right now.
Where is the Season Pass for Arkham Knight free right now?
So apparently, the Epic version received a few hours ago an update of 14 GB adding all the content from the Season Pass. I can't confirm it though, because I haven't downloaded the game yet. I read this in the Steam forums.
Very, very good deals on such great games :)
Claimed batman trilogy, can't claim the LEGO one for some reason, will try tomorrow.
I have the opposite, can't claim trilogy after claiming Lego. Hopefully it wasn't changed to pick one or the other
They don't need bad publicity IMHO. It's probably just technical issue.
I,could claim the LEGO one right now, it was likely just a hiccup. I hope it will work for you too :)
Lots of awesome games. Not to mention Dauntless is also on the EBS and MTG Arena is about to launch on it as well.
I was wondering which of those batman games they were teasing for this week. Turns out it was all of them at once.
Got all six games. I'm pleased although I have Batman Arkham series on Steam. Will install Lego ones.
I'm really surprised they released 6 like that!! But happy to have Asylum and City again (I had them on my PS3 before) and will probably goof around with the LEGO ones eventually LOL
This is the best one yet. However Epic still has yet to get a 0.01c from me ;P I love the freebies though
Now i have a good games collection in my epic library
Arkham Knigt just got an update to version 1.7 from 1.5 and recieved Season Pass
I was just about to ask, it's weird the DLC isn't on the epic store. Is all the DLC included?
Yes. Looks like all DLC there. Stories, chalenges and skins
I've only claimed like 25% of these games I always forget. But I probably wouldn't play most of them ever or at least any time soon. So I could always buy it discounted on steam if need be.
Already had all on Steam except Arkham Knight, but still, nice.
Just noticed the free game Auto Chess is on the store. Not sure when that arrived, but if you're into redeeming all the free things, because why not?...
Good catch, too bad Epic still doesn't have an option to sort by price or anything similar (at least they have a regular search now). Even on ITAD it doesn't show up.
To anyone interested: Auto Chess is the port of a free to play mobile game with loot boxes. Not trying to talk you out of it. Well, maybe.
im just still sad i missed Subnautica lol
Glad I'm receiving all these goodies. At least I feel compensated of throwing them money because of mykid@fortnite.
Epic just sent me the receipts for the batman games... 5 days after I activated them, odd.
What is going on? I got my receipt for the Batman Arkham games nearly instantly, but didn't get my receipt for Lego Batman until today.
Mine was the other way around, got the receipt for LEGO games instantly but they didn't send the Arkham Trilogy receipt until today
What you mean with activate? I cant sadly install the Epic Launcher, my PC is sadly to old and very bad. But i got it trough the Browser and i got for both a receipt, instantly. I thought, its now in my Library or not?
Or where i can find then the Keys for them, so can or need to activate later in the Launcher?
Im little bit confused right now, sorry. :D
Don't worry, if they are in your payment history (click here) they are in your library, there is nothing else you need to do.
Ignore the word "activate" being used here, Axelflox is just using it instead of the words bought, purchased, acquired, obtained etc.
Hey there, thanks for explaining it to me. ;-)
What DarkHyren said. I didn't want to use "bought" because that normally implies that I paid something and "activated" was the first thing that came to mind.
Yeah, no problem and i understand. Some say so and some so, sometimes for others confusing. But its all explained, so no worries now. ;-)
And with paid, like its said, you paid for it. So makes sense, not to use that, if got something for Free. :D
Same here for both Lego Batman Trilogy and Batman Arkham - Trilogy
Bump. Final day to get Batman games for free.
Next week some MINIT. Never heard of it and I'm the expert.
Minit was also present in Humble Monthly in April 2019. It's a fun little indie, with time-based gameplay.
Everything is free now on Epic!! :-)
Such a misleading phrase xD
I'm still wondering if taking these free games directly helps Epic, whether through their direct finances or by giving them more clout when buying up more exclusives. Anyone have any concrete information one way or the other?
Epic pays the same percentage as if it were a real sale. So it costs Epic money.
Dev/publisher will see it as a sale and happily take home the money. But I wonder what percentage of claimants actually even install or play the free games.
