Epic Games Store customers will soon be able to download and keep another free game.
In its ongoing battle with Steam, Epic has sweetened the deal by giving away a fresh batch of free games every week.
Previous Epic Store free games include GTA 5, Civilization 6 and Borderlands: The Handsome Collection.
It’s a ploy that appears to have worked, because the Epic Game Store has registered more than 60 million users.
The Epic Games Store free games giveaway continues with an award-winning free game at 4pm BST on July 2.
This means customers only have a few hours left to download last week’s free games, which include AER Memories of Old and Stranger Things 3: The Game.
There’s only one new free game this week, but it’s a good one. Hue is described as a “vibrant, award-winning puzzle-adventure, where you alter the world by changing its background colour”.
“You explore a dangerous grey land, unearthing coloured fragments on a journey to find your missing mother.
“As obstacles match the background, they disappear, creating new and exciting puzzles – full of peril, mystery… and colours unseen.”
As for the current batch of free games, Stranger Things 3 is the pick of the bunch.
“Stranger Things 3: The Game is the official companion game to Season 3 of the hit original series!” reads the official description.
“Play through familiar events from the series while also uncovering never-before-seen quests, character interactions, and secrets! This adventure game blends a distinctively retro art style with modern gameplay mechanics to deliver nostalgic fun with a fresh new twist.
“Just like in the show, teamwork is at the heart of Stranger Things 3: The Game.
“Fans can team up in two player local co-op to explore the world of Hawkins, solve puzzles, and battle the emerging evils of The Upside Down as one of twelve beloved characters from the show.”
AER Memories of Old, meanwhile, is an open-world adventure that takes place on land and in the air.
“Transform into a bird and fly to explore and experience a vibrant world of floating islands in the sky,” reads the official description.
“Venture down into lost ancient ruins where each step leads you closer to the end of the world.
“The gods of old are forgotten, lost in the events that shattered the world, leaving only fragments of islands in the sky. This mystic world of endless skies, colourful islands and ancient ruins is in danger of falling into darkness.
“As one of the last few shapeshifters, you are sent on a pilgrimage to the Land of Gods. Uncover the secrets that will help save reality itself.”
