Epic Games has been wowing players with its recently-launched competitor to Steam known as the Epic Games Store.
Since its launch late last year, Epic has unveiled a load of exclusive games, and its even gone one step further by promising players two free games a month. Thanks, Epic!
The first of these free games for 2019 is none other than the BAFTA-winning What Remains Of Edith Finch, which will be available to play – for free – from 10th to the 25th January 2019.
The narrative-driven title was heralded as one of the best games of 2017, redefining the expectations of what constitutes a video game.
The Epic Games Store hasn’t failed to deliver with its free titles, which so far have included the likes of Super Meat Boy and Subnautica.
What Remains of Edith Finch will be free on our Epic Games store later this month. I can’t gush enough about how great of an experience this game was for me. SO GOOD!!!

Did you know that @SuperMeatBoy is free to download inside the Epic Games store until 11:59PM EST on January 10, 2019?. Best of all, once you grab the game, it’s yours to keep! https://t.co/eIsVpzK8CQ pic.twitter.com/OsyYXOJvGR

If you haven’t played Super Meat Boy, it’s worth checking out before it gets replaced by Edith Finch.
Me: *Buys Edith Finch*
Epic Games Store, several days later: HEY GUYS WE’RE GIVING EDITH FINCH AWAY FOR FREE!
At least I’m supporting the devs, they deserve it

With such a stellar line-up of titles so far, it’s going to be pretty exciting to see what Epic pulls out of the bag for its next free game.
What would you like to see the Epic Games Store offer up?
