The Epic Games Store continues to give away free games each week, more than three years after the digital storefront launched its awesome weekly freebies program. Epic has confirmed that the free games program will continue through at least the end of 2022. Every Thursday at the same time 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET–Epic gives up between one and three free games.
You merely need to create a free Epic account and enable two-factor authentication to start snagging freebies. At this point, Epic has given away well over 100 free games, and there’s no sign that the program will stop any time soon. We keep this article up to date weekly to highlight both the current free games and next week’s offerings.
This week’s free game at Epic
From now until October 13 at 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET, you can claim Rising Hell and Slain: Back from Hell. So, yes, next week will be a big week for games featuring hellish names and settings. Raising Hell is a platforming rogue-lite with fast-paced, challenging combat. Your goal is to escape the depths of hell, so this is a vertically-based platformer. Slain: Back from Hell is a side-scrolling action platformer featuring melee and magical combat. Yes, there are lots of demons in this one, too. Both games also feature heavy metal soundtracks.
