Epic Games Store Free Game
Every Thursday, the Epic Games Store offers a new free game to all users of its platform. Unlike other “free” game promotions, games offered on the Epic Games Store are available without any conditions. No subscription service is required and anyone who claims the games can keep them forever.
This week’s free Epic Games Store game is a multiplayer social deduction game Among us. Among us exploded in popularity last year after streamers found out about it and started streaming it. Among us has become a global phenomenon, spawning all kinds of fan-made content and becoming popular enough to convince the developers to abandon their plans for a sequel, focusing on the original instead.
Among us has been available to play on PC and mobile devices for quite some time, but it’s only just made its way to other platforms. PC gamers who haven’t tried it yet Among us can now do it through the Epic Games Store without paying a dime, although anyone interested should act quickly. Among us will be phased out as the free-to-play Epic Games Store arrives on Thursday, June 3, when it will be replaced by another title.
The upcoming free-to-play Epic Games Store has yet to be officially announced, but leaks indicate it is Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Years Celebration. Whether or not that’s the case remains to be seen, but Epic Games Store users will find out sooner rather than later. In the meantime, they can pass the time by playing tricks on Among us.

June is Pride Month and to celebrate, fans can treat themselves to a free game.

Anyone interested in playing Tell me why for free can do so by claiming the game through Steam on PC or on their Xbox consoles.
For those who don’t know Tell me why, it plays very similarly to other games from Dontnod Entertainment, like the Life is strange series. It’s essentially the modern take on the point-and-click adventure game genre, with players scouring the environment for clues on how to progress while making important dialogue choices that can have an impact. on relationships and the unfolding of history.
