When it comes to the Epic Games Store, it's Christmas every week. To entice customers to move over from Steam and welcome the newer store on the block, Epic is giving away free games every week of 2020. It worked in 2019, so why not?

That's right, completely free! No strings attached, except the one tied to Epic's storefront. Even if you already own the current free games or don't plan on playing them anytime soon, you might as well login and add them to your library. Keep checking in here to see what's free right now and what's coming in the future. We've also listed the full history of Epic's giveaways, so you can see what's already been given away.

Epic Games Store: what's free right now

April 2 - April 9, 2020: Hob, Gone Home, and Drawful 2

Gone Home is a first-person exploration game where you play as a young woman who returns to find her family home empty. As you explore the house, you begin to uncover the drama surrounding each member of the family. It's an intimate and thoughtful story, which Logan described as "an affecting game that challenges you like no other" in his 85% review.

If you're up for something a little more upbeat, then Hob is a puzzle-platformer where you play as a silent protagonist with a giant left arm. While its platforming might be clumsy at times, Andy awarded it 77% because of its vibrant world.

April 1 - April 8, 2020: Totally Reliable Delivery Service

Silly physics game TRDS wasn't planned as part of Epic's freebies but just so happens to be free for keeps during its first week after launch. It looks like similar shenanigans to Human Fall Flat or Gang Beasts with the added challenge of delivering packages safely around the map. 

Epic Games Store free games: what's coming next?

Epic will be giving away games every week for all of 2020, but it's only announcing a few games ahead of time. Check back here weekly for the next games announced on offer.

April 9 - April 16, 2020: Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments
