Every Thursday, the Epic Games Store publishes a fresh batch of free games for players to try out, with no need to subscribe or pay anything else. The Epic Games Store has published two new free games for players to check out on Thursday, September 16, while also announcing next week’s free game offering, which will also be the last EGS free game for September 2021.
Epic Games Store customers may claim Speed Brawl and Tharsis for their collections until September 23 at 10:00 a.m. CT. The Escapists will be available from September 23 to September 30 at 10:00 a.m. CT. Because the Epic Games Store usually only gives out two free games at a time, it’s conceivable that The Escapists may be joined by a surprise title next week, similar to how Nioh: The Complete Edition was a surprise EGS free game last week. In any event, once customers claim these titles on the Epic Games Store, they are theirs to keep indefinitely.
Speed Brawl is a 2D action racing game for people who are unfamiliar with the free Epic Games Store games for September 2021. Last month, Speed Brawl was scheduled to be an EGS free game, but it was pushed back owing to some sort of technical issue that has never been addressed. Tharsis, on the other hand, is a space-themed turn-based strategy game.
The Escapists, the free game for next week, is a strategic game about escaping from jail. The Escapists received mixed reviews upon its first release in 2015, but it has since gained a devoted following. At this point, it looks to be the only free Epic Games Store game for next week, but it’s always possible that the Epic Games Store has a surprise in store.
Mystery games on the Epic Games Store are nothing new; the launcher has previously given away a surprise game, such as Nioh: The Complete Edition, and has even run prolonged mystery game campaigns. These Epic Games Store mystery game campaigns were created to raise awareness of the store’s special sales events and to countdown to the Christmas season.
While the Epic Games Store is still divisive in the gaming community, there’s no doubting that it’s made significant progress in the PC gaming sector. To attract new customers, Epic Games Store has been introducing new features and giving away a lot of free games, and it doesn’t appear like it will change its policy anytime soon.
