I guess I should plug my coworkers' game, you may have heard of it...


Fortnite: Battle Royale is free to play.  It's also very egalitarian:  All purchased items are cosmetic.

It's not a deal per se, but the complete version of CS:GO is now free forever.

Re: Current FREE Games Promotions
Unsure if true or not, but looks to be Subnautica will be free on the Epic Games store from 12/14 - 12/27 (top-left of store page linked here).  *coughs in Goober's general direction*

EDIT2: Ok, Fortnite and Unreal Tournament are free on Epic Games right now.  Subnautica 12/14 - 12/27, and Super Meat Boy 12/28 - 1/10.

Re: Current FREE Games Promotions
So does that mean free-to-keep, or just free-to-play-in-that-timeframe?

Well, Fortnite and Unreal Tournament do appear in my library at the moment after I clicked on the "free" button on their page.
It does ask you if you want to install them but it's not necessary.

Re: Current FREE Games Promotions
Both of those are free games to begin with, so that makes sense.  (Apparently UT's development was halted indefinitely due to the team working on Fortnite.)

I *think* it's free to keep.  Going to try and find out (although I already have it on Steam).

Full Throttle: Remastered free on GOG for the next two days.  The giveaway and current sale displays refuse to load for me in both Pale Moon and IE, so I had to go through Galaxy to snag it.

Re: Current FREE Games Promotions
Not exactly a FREE promotion but not sure where else to put it, sorry!

Thought y'all might want to check this out, some pretty decent titles still in stock (and some rotten trash but hey :lol:) for 5 buckos.
