For those who love something for nothing, the excellent Subnautica and Super Meat Boy will be available gratis for a limited time. Normally priced at $25, alien ocean survival adventure Subnautica can be grabbed for $0 from December 14 to December 27. Classic indie platformer Super Meat Boy, meanwhile, is free from December 28 to January 10.
Epic’s own Fortnite and Unreal Tournament are also free on the store, and the company promises a new free game will be on offer every two weeks.
Why the Epic Store?
Our goal is to bring you great games, and to give game developers a better deal: they receive 88% of the money you spend, versus only 70% elsewhere. This helps developers succeed and make more of the games you love.
The first games on the store are Hades by Supergiant Games, Ashen by Annapurna/A44, and Hello Neighbor: Hide and Seek by tinyBuild, and they’re available now!
Hades is the rogue-like dungeon crawler from the creators of Bastion and Transistor. It is available in early access, with updates to come every month until full release later in 2019.
Ashen is an action RPG about a wanderer in search of a home. You can forge relationships in the game, inviting other players to join your camp - they might just help you succeed.
Hello Neighbor: Hide and Seek is the prequel to Hello Neighbor, the stealth horror hit. Find out what happened right before the events of the main game.
The store will also feature one free game every two weeks throughout 2019. Epic is funding these free releases so you always have something new to come and check out. The first free game will be Subnautica, available from Dec 14th to Dec 27th, followed by Super Meat Boy from Dec 28th to Jan 10th.
The Epic Games store will be growing throughout 2019 and beyond, as it opens up more widely to other games.
