Next week’s free Epic Games Store titles have been revealed.
Obsidian Entertainment RPGs Pillars of Eternity – Definitive Edition and Tyranny – Gold Edition will be free to download from December 10-17.
They will replace classic indie platformer Cave Story+, from Nicalis and Studio Pixel, which normally costs £9.99 but is currently free to download until December 10.
The Epic Games Store’s free games promotion, which launched alongside the storefront in December 2018, will run throughout 2020.
Epic CEO Tim Sweeney claimed earlier this year that the promotion has caused sales to increase for developers who participate.
“People have discovered a lot of great games that way,” he told Gamespot. “It’s been a benefit for game developers.
“Most developers who launch their games for free on the store found that their sales on Steam and on console platforms actually increased after they went free on Epic because of increased awareness and so it’s been a really positive thing and it’s brought tens of millions of new users into the Epic Games ecosystem and that’s been a wonderful thing for the company.”
Epic launched Fortnite Chapter 2 – Season 5 on Wednesday alongside a new $10 monthly Fortnite subscription service.
The game wrapped up its Marvel-themed Chapter 2 – Season 4 on Tuesday with a fight against planet consumer Galactus in a live event which attracted a record 15.3 million concurrent players, according to Epic.
