It’s finally time! Epic Games Store offers a PS Plus-like service where it offers a free game every week to Epic Games Store users. Unlike PS Plus and Games With Gold, this one is actually free. You don’t need to pay any subscription services for this game!
The last time the Epic Games Store pulled a “free mystery game” on us, the game in question was Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto 5. What’s coming this time around?
LATEST – Is Epic Games Sus? Yes
Among Us is the next free game on the Epic Games Store! It’s a surprise to be sure, but a welcome one. This marks the game’s debut on the platform.
Some fans are disappointed, as Rise of the Tomb Raider is a game with much more substance. However, we can always hope that that’s coming next time.
We’re Only A Few Hours Away
It’s about that time we start making sure we have enough hard drive space, isn’t it? The Epic Games Store’s next free game is still a mystery, but we’re due to find out what’s going to be replacing NBA 2K21 very soon.
The strongest rumour we have so far is that the free game is going to be Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics’ Rise of the Tomb Raider, but we’re not sure how true this is just yet.
The source of this information was somewhat sound, but Epic Games could have something equally as exciting up their sleeves. It wouldn’t be much of a mystery if it was leaked early, right?
Epic Games Store Mystery Game Release Date
At the moment, NBA 2K21 is free to download and play on the Epic Games Store. It’s a little bit massive, for a free game, and the Epic Games Store has a lot to live up to going into its next title.
The mystery free game is due to replace NBA 2K21 on May 27th and we’re still waiting for a reveal as to what it might be.
We know it’s called a mystery game, but we’re only a day away! The mystery title is due to be revealed at 11:00 EST / 16:00 BST on May 27th, when it will replace NBA 2K21. For now, though, you can always take a look at the Epic Mega Sale while you wait. There’s some great deals on there and a free coupon up for grabs.
Mystery Game Leaks & Rumours
At the moment, we only really have one leak regarding the new Epic Games Store mystery free game and it’s a questionable leak at best.
First shared on Reddit, the post looks like it’s come from the French-language Epic Games account on Facebook. In this particular post, it has stated that Rise of the Tomb Raider will be free to play on PC up until June 3rd.
It fits the bill, but it isn’t official and it should be taken with a grain or two of salt. That being said, Rise of the Tomb Raider is in no way a bad free game to get on the Epic Games Store. It’s a little different from what we’ve seen in the past and doesn’t offer much in the way of multiplayer options, but it’s still a fantastic title nonetheless. If you want to play multiplayer games, Lara Croft is in Fortnite at the moment. Perhaps there’s some correlation there…
