Current FREE Games Promotions
RULES (Please?):

  • Game discounts, as opposed to FREE titles, go in the other thread dedicated to that purpose.
  • Include the name of the game in question, and a link to the source (if possible)
  • If the promotion expires, include the expiry date if known.
  • Strike out dead entries when you become aware of them, and a mod/admin will remove them.
  • Feel free to post when games become F2P, but these posts will be removed periodically (after a few weeks).
  • Commentary is fine, but will be removed when the thread is periodically pruned.  Commentary of value (tech support, etc) will be split out.  Please try to keep unnecessary commentary out entirely - start a new discussion topic instead.

I'll prune the thread periodically, but other moderators are welcome to help out as well.  We're going to try to keep this to a single page topic.

EDIT:  A good find by Mongoose, we can also refer to this Gamespot list which is periodically updated but not always current: https://www.gamespot.com/articles/free-games-available-for-download-on-pc-ps4-xbox-o/1100-6474874/

Red Wings: Aces of The Sky free until tomorrow:
https://store.steampowered.com/app/1140630/Red_Wings_Aces_of_the_Sky/

I gave it a quick try and it's one of those games that assumes you have a gamepad even if it's not using Xinput, I'll probably create a profile to switch around the buttons on my joystick but I'm not currently in the mood. Still, I can't complain too much for a freebie.

The old-school version of XIII is free on GOG for the next couple of days.
We have returned to continue our purification of this galaxy. It is again your turn to be crushed beneath the great force that is the Antaran army. All your petty squabbling with the other beings in this galaxy is meaningless. The Antaran fleet will destroy you all, one by one. You may not surrender. You cannot win. Your only option is death.

Deponia: The Complete Journey (#1-3), Ken Follet's The Pillars of the Earth, and The First Tree free on Epic Games until April 22nd at 11AM.  Highly recommend Deponia, and The Pillars of the Earth is by the same folks (Daedelic).  Also, there is a 4th Deponia not included in The Complete Journey, called Deponia Doomsday, also excellent, but apparently only available on Steam and GOG ( :ick: if you're going to have some of your games on all platforms, why not all of your games on all platforms?? ).

Epic has updated the Alien Isolation giveaway to include the Last Survivor DLC, so even if you grabbed the game during the Christmas giveaway, you can still score the DLC for free.

Confirmed; if you don't see the DLC as free check the main game and it will appear as not owned.  Click to get it and the DLC will also appear as owned.

Re: Current FREE Games Promotions
Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms is a licensed Dungeons & Dragons strategy management game, free on Epic right now, and there's also a $100 value promo going on:
Quote
All players who log into Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms through the Epic Games Store between Thursday 4/29/2021 at 11AM Eastern and Thursday 5/6/2021 at 11AM Eastern will receive the Epic Champions of Renown!

So if you're interested, even as a back burner item, install, log in, log off, then uninstall if you want to free the space (but it's less than 700MB installed).
