Epic Games Store free games FAQ

Here are some common questions associated with the Epic Games Store “Free Games” weekly event.

Are the free games from Epic Games free forever?

The games are free forever, as long as you “purchase” them during the free period by going through the checkout process. Visit the Free Games Store page to claim the game when it’s free. It will be available to download and play from your library whenever you want.

Do you need to install the free Epic Games immediately?

Purchase the game when it’s free and download it whenever you want. Click the purchase button, and it will walk you through the checkout process for $0.00, and you do not have to install it at that moment.

When are the Epic Games Store games free?

Every week on Thursday, one free game or more is available through the Epic Games Store. Additional events, like the 12 Days of Free Games in Winter of 2019, sometimes include even more giveaways multiple times per week.

How long has the Epic Games Store been giving away free games?

The Free Games program was expected to last until the end of 2019 but has continued well into 2020. In terms of growing the Epic Games user base, it seems to be a massive success. There is also no shortage of video games to keep this going every week.
