First October Epic Games Store Free Game Announced

The Epic Games Store gives out a free game or two every Thursday, usually promoting the following week’s offering in the process. The Epic Games Store has been updated again as of Thursday, September 23, with a new free game and information on what’s coming up next week.

Epic Games Store customers may claim The Escapists for their collection starting at 10:00 a.m. CT on September 23. The Escapists is a famous strategy game about breaking out of jail that has spawned spin-offs and a sequel.


From now until September 30 at 10:00 a.m. CT, anybody interested in The Escapists may claim it for free, with the only prerequisite being that they have the Epic Games Launcher downloaded. Unlike other ” free ” gaming providers, the Epic Games Store free games do not require any subscription payments, unlike other “free” gaming providers.

Meanwhile, the Epic Games Store has announced the free games that will be available next week. Epic Games Store customers may add Europa Universalis 4 to their digital libraries from September 30 at 10:00 a.m. CT through October 7 at the same time. While it won’t be released until the end of September, Europa Universalis 4 will be the first free Epic Games Store game in October 2021.

Europa Universalis 4 is not just one of the oldest games given away for free on the Epic Games Store, but it’s also one of the best. Europa Universalis 4 is a great strategy game that debuted in 2013 to great acclaim and has since been updated with several expansions and feature upgrades. It’s being made by Paradox Interactive, which is best known for Crusader Kings 3, one of the year’s highest-rated games.


Fans will most likely learn about the next free game when Europa Universalis 4 is released next week. It’ll be fascinating to watch if the Epic Games Store continues to give out one free game at a time, as it has been doing for quite some time.

The Epic Games Store is set to stop announcing the next free game later this year and return to its mystery game campaign. Epic used the Epic Games Store mystery games at the end of the year and during its Epic Games Store Mega Sale this past summer to generate interest in the launcher. However, no formal plans have been disclosed as of this writing.
