Epic is giving away a free game every day for what’s left of 2020 – CNET


If you’re a gamer, or you just visit The Cheapskate occasionally, you probably know that Epic Games gives away at least one free game each Thursday. Through the holidays, though, the company has been offering a new free game every day, and it’ll continue this through New Year’s Eve. So not only should you act fast to grab your free game today, you should also remember to come back tomorrow. 

Wednesday’s free game is Torchlight II, an action-packed RPG you can play on your own or in co-op mode. This title would ordinarily set you back $20, but now you can get it for nothing.

Want the game? You’ve got until 8 a.m. PT on Thursday to claim it, after which time it’ll be replaced by the final entry, a little game that goes by the name Jurassic World Evolution. At least, that should be the freebie tomorrow; the full list of daily free games for the rest of the year was leaked last week. According to unaffiliated Twitter user @jovanmunja, the list of games for the rest of the year looks like this (@jovanmunja tweeted this list on Dec. 18, and it’s perfectly matched the releases every day so far):

If you’re new to Epic’s weekly giveaway, here’s how it works: If you don’t already have one, sign up for your free Epic account. Then just get your free game, yours to keep forever. You don’t even need to install it right away if you don’t want to.
