Epic Games Store Free Games FAQ

Here are some common questions associated with the Epic Games Store “Free Games” weekly event.

Are the free games from Epic Games free forever?

The games are free forever, as long as you “purchase” them during the free period by going through the checkout process. Visit the Free Games Store page to claim the game when it’s free. It will be available to download and play from your library whenever you want.

Does the game need to be installed ASAP?

Purchase the game when it’s free and download it whenever you want. Click the purchase button, and it will walk you through the checkout process for $0.00, and you do not have to install it at that moment.

When are the games free?

Every week, a free game or two is available through the Epic Games Store. Epic Games has started releasing more popular titles in 2020, such as Grand Theft Auto V and Borderlands. Additional events, like the 12 Days of Free Games in Winter of 2019, sometimes include even more giveaways.

How long are games free?

The Free Games program was expected to last until the end of 2019 but has continued well into 2020. In terms of growing the Epic Games user base, it seems to be a massive success. There is also no shortage of video games to keep this going every week.
