The Epic Games Store is preparing a big 2020 XMAS sale: the holiday offers go online today. As part of the deal, a number of PC games are likely to be reduced in price – the download platform promises discounts of up to 75 percent. "The holiday offers in the Epic Games Store begin on December 17th and we have some great things prepared for you. Unpack discounts of up to 75 percent, and that's not all …", the platform operator said. The XMAS Sale 2020 should go live punctually today at 5 p.m. – together with the new free game.
The special feature of the XMAS Sale 2020: Starting today, the Epic Games Store will distribute a free PC game every day over the next 15 days. "Also starting on December 17th, we will be giving away a new game every day for two weeks – 15 days of free games. Each game is available for free download for exactly 24 hours," he wrote Store on its website for the holiday deals. Users with an account in the Epic Games Store will therefore receive plenty of games over the next two weeks.
All you have to do is link the individual games to your account within the 24 hours to have permanent access – you can then play as often as you like. The information does not reveal which PC games can be cleared for free within the promotion. The store is promoting the first free game, which is available today at 5 p.m., as "mysterious gameThe assumption is that the free games of the coming days will not be revealed until 5 pm. As soon as we get more information, you will find out as usual in our news area.
Last year, the store advertised a similar campaign: For the XMAS Sale 2019, users were able to secure a total of twelve free PC games via the Epic Games Store. Back then there were TowerFall Ascension, Little Inferno, Celeste and Ape Out for free.
We give all readers daily free news, articles, guides, videos and podcasts on their favorite games. So far we have financed this site through advertising and kept it as free of clickbaits or paid items as possible, but since COVID-19 this has become increasingly difficult. Many companies are cutting or cutting their advertising budgets for 2020. Budgets that we unfortunately have to rely on if we want to continue to offer PC games free of charge as usual in the future.
For this reason we turn to you now. As a PC Games supporter, you can support us so that we can continue to offer our content in the usual form for free without introducing a paywall or publishing clickbait news like "And you won't believe what happened next …" . Every contribution, large or small, is valuable.
