- Epic Games Store now offers “The Lion’s Song” for free
- Every character in “The Lion’s Song” has an unparalleled mind
- Its ‘mystery game’ is expected to be unveiled on May 21
The mystery game that Epic Games Store has been teasing for several days may have been unveiled in a new leak.
When Epic Games Store updates a new free title, it will unlock the mystery game. According to a prominent industry insider HypeX, the said game is none other than “NBA 2K21.” “NBA 2K21 is most likely this week’s Free Game on Epic Games Store,” the insider revealed.
Moreover, the insider has noted that the digital video games storefront would announce on May 20 that the “FREE: The MEGA Sale Vault is Open.” Fans would also reportedly see the text, “You’ve never been closer to the game. NBA 2K21 brings you the next generation of basketball, totally for FREE!”
It appears that the “NBA 2K21” will be available for free on the Epic Games Store until May 27.
Unfortunately, HypeX does not say how he came across these details about the mystery game of the Epic Games Store. It could have been taken from the files of the digital storefront. While the insider has shared accurate leaks in the past, these details are not official. Fans should therefore temper their expectations and take the leak with skepticism.
At the moment, users can download the game “The Lion’s Song” for free. It is a good quality game but it’s not as popular as the “NBA 2K21.” For the uninitiated, “The Lion’s Song” is a narrative adventure title based in the early 20th-century history. According to Epic Games Store, the game “focuses on a cast of Austrian artists and scientists with each episode taking a closer look at their intimate struggles with creativity and inspiration.”
Every character in “The Lion’s Song” has an unparalleled mind. “The game draws players into a story of personal struggle for creativity, human connections & inspiration: a talented composer suffering from writer’s block before her breakthrough concert, an up-and-coming painter growing through his challenges & a brilliant mathematician trying to make her voice heard in a men’s world. The choices players make ultimately determine if the protagonists find the success they are working for,” as per Epic Games Store.
It is worth noting that the last time Epic Games Store used the “mystery game” strategy, it gave away “Grand Theft Auto 5” for free. The store, at that time, was temporarily overwhelmed because of the massive number of downloads.
