Ends April 02.  Every two weeks Epic gives away 2 to 3 games away for free with no strings attached.  They are doing it in an effort to build there userbase, which should lead to future purchases.  

Right now there is WWZ plus two smaller independent games, which I usually DL simply because they are free and they could come in handy one day if my kid ever decides she wants to play too since at least some of them are kid appropriate. 

So far I have 19 games in my library for which I have paid a total of $2 for.

Some games I picked up for free are: 

Borderlands 3 (Free with a hardware purchase)

The Outer Worlds (Fee with a hardware purchase)

Watch Dogs (I will make you cry in free roam)

Kingdome come deliverance (Loving it)

Assasin's Creed: Syndicate

Off World Trading Company

And some other smaller titles.

You can pick up a major AAA every once in a while.  Just thought I would share the info in case someone isn't aware.

My gaming tag on steam and epic is Dashabox if anyone wants to add me.

WWZ is a blast, for anyone who is on the fence. Very, very reminiscent of Left 4 Dead. It's fun even by yourself, but it *shines* when you can play 4 guys at once together against zombie hordes.

I havent played it yet as I just took it today.  Do they scale down difficulty for a single player?

No clue but it is a large game file.  Was designed to exploit next gen pc tech so not sure a phone could run.....oh wait, are you referring to the Epic games launcher? (Dur)

Yeah I don't think the game would run on a phone, unless you streamed from the cloud to your phone.

No problem brother, did you get yourself a copy?

The other two games atm are "Figment" and "Tormentor X Punisher".  Just small indie titles.  You should find them on the homepage.

Yeah there is a "Free game page" but most of those are basically the pay to play type iirc.  The ones I am talking about are full single player games.

 

EDIT: "Pay to play" I'm an idiot.  I mean to say that they have micro-transactions and are based around selling you shit in the game for real world money.

Don't quote me on this but I believe there is cross-play with Epic and the XBox store.  

Not sure if that would work on the 360 though, I'd look it up first.
