122 Comments

The Epic Games Store gives out free games on a weekly basis, and the program will run through at least 2021. 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 games at Epic

No Caption Provided

From now until October 21 at 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET, you can claim Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse and a Paladins Epic Pack. Stubbs the Zombie is a third-person action game that originally released in 2005 and was remastered for modern consoles earlier this year. You play as Stubbs, a very hungry zombie who devours human brains. Meanwhile, the Paladins Epic Pack is an Epic-exclusive bundle that unlocks four Champions for the popular online multiplayer game.

Next week's free game at Epic

Among the Sleep
Among the Sleep

Starting October 21, you can claim Among the Sleep - Enhanced Edition. Among the Sleep is a survival horror game with a unique premise: You play as a two-year-old child who is stuck in a nightmare and cannot find his mom. Played from a first-person perspective and filled with frights, Among the Sleep is definitely worth checking out if you like horror games. Also, it's a great time to play it with Halloween around the corner.


Epic Games Store free games list

We're keeping a running list of every free game that Epic users have been able to claim in the past. From AAA hits to indie darlings, Epic has really made its mark with free games. You can even snag these games if you don't have a powerful PC so you can play them if you ever get one. Look at the list below to see the frankly ridiculous list of free games that have been available.
