Epic Games Store free games: this week's giveaways revealed

Ready for this week's free Epic Games Store games? With the world continuing to be still turned upside down Covid-19, there's never been a better time to stay indoors and game. Whether you're setting out on an epic single-player adventure, or teaming up with your buddies online, video games are the cure all we need right now during these unprecedented times. It's nice of Epic to give away free games each and every week, then.

This week, Epic is giving away Galactic Civilizations 3 for free, which is available to download until January 28. Can you build a civilization that will stand the test of time? You'll need to rely on your powers of diplomacy if you're to succeed.  

You can grab it here, and watch a trailer of the game in action below: 

More free games

As for the other games? Well, Epic is only giving one game away this week. 

Epic Games Store is continuing to offer free games every week for the foreseeable future as part of its commitment to winning over gamers. It's aiming to establish itself as a serious game distribution force, duking it out against the long-standing king of PC gaming, Valve's Steam platform.

While Epic has courted some controversy through its aggressive approach to securing PC gaming exclusives for its platform, it's hard to argue against its continued distribution of top-notch free games.

Next week's games

Can't wait to get your hands on some more games without spending a penny? Epic is giving away Dandara: Trials of Fear Edition for free from January 28 to February 4.
