Epic Games is giving you one free game per day for the next two weeks and it starts today with an action game.
If you are a PC gamer and have an Epic Games Store account, today is your lucky day. The studio has decided to get caught up in the madness of the end of the year holidays, and to offer several gifts to the users of its online store. From today, players will enjoy one free game per day, and this for the next two weeks. The best advent calendar for a gamer.
The first game offered is Shenmue III, an action-adventure game released in 2019 and which did not really convince the critics at the time. In this opus, you play as Ryo Hazuki, who is interested in the artifact called Mirror of the Phoenix. The search for the latter will bring him closer to his father’s assassin, whom he wishes to fight for revenge.
More than a fighting game license, Shenmue is a true epic which puts at its center a deep and sentimental history in the heart of the great country that is China. In this section, you will be able to visit villages perched in the mountains, or even rural areas quiet enough for the hero to perfect his combat techniques.
Thursday’s free game … but every day
To claim the game, all you need to do is log into your Epic Games Store account and put it in your library. Hurry up, you have until 5 p.m. before it is replaced by the next in the list. Obviously, we cannot yet know which one it is, but we can expect another quality game. This approach replaces the famous free Thursday games, a tradition that Epic Games established many months ago.
This is a real good deal since in normal times, Shenmue III is priced at € 29.99 for the standard edition. For those who want the full experience, the deluxe edition is still available for € 39.99 on the Epic Games Store. For the rest of the games offered, you’ll have to log in every day to find out what to expect.
However, rumors state that the last game, which should therefore be released on December 30, will be free for a whole week, until Thursday, January 6, so that Epic Games will resume its rhythm of one game per week. A rumor that remains to be confirmed by Epic Games when the time comes.
