The Epic Games Store confirms two free games coming next week along with other freebies users can expect to claim.
With Steam having such a grip on the PC digital gaming market, Epic Games had to go to great lengths to attract users to the Epic Games Store. The two key elements of Epic’s strategy to gain new Epic Games Store users are getting timed exclusivity offers and giving away free games. The Epic Games Store is giving away free games on a weekly basis, and it turns out users have two free games to look forward to next week.
From now until March 3 at 10:00 CT, Epic Games Store users can claim Cree Tales free. Cree Tales is a relatively new RPG that pays homage to classic JRPGs, but with an interesting time travel gimmick. Anyone interested in Cree Tales can claim it for their Epic Games Store library now, but in the meantime, they can also take note of the free games coming to the Epic Games Store next week.
From March 3 to 10, Epic Games Store users will be able to claim Black Widow: Recharged and Centipede: Reloaded. These are new versions of classic arcade games that got graphical upgrades and other modern features. However, Black Widow: Recharged and Centipede: Reloaded aren’t the only freebies coming to the Epic Games Store next week.
Epic Games Store Free Games March 2022
- Cris Tales (February 24 – March 3)
- Black Widow: Recharged (March 3 – March 10)
- Centipede: Recharged (March 3 to March 10)
- Dauntless Epic Slayer Kit (March 3 – March 10)
outraged Black Widow: Recharged and Centipede: ReloadedEpic Games Store users will also be able to claim the Epic Slayer Kit for Intrepid. For the uninitiated, Intrepid is a monster hunter-style action-RPG that has been adding new content regularly for a few years now. Intrepid is free, but the Epic Slayer Kit should give fans a boost in-game.
What exactly the Epic Slayer Kit entails is unclear at the time of this writing, as the description on the Epic Games Store doesn’t provide many details and the product won’t be released until March 3rd. It’s said to be an “epic bundle of supplies,” giving players access to currency and three days of in-game VIP club. Those wanting to know the specifics of the bundle will likely have to wait for the Epic kit. Slayer for Intrepid comes out for free on March 3.
In the meantime, some Epic Games Store users may be confused by the range of free games, as the desktop version of the launcher currently only lists the Epic Slayer bundle coming next week. This is likely an error that will soon be fixed, but in the meantime fans can claim Cree Tales and look forward to new free games coming next week.
