As has become a holiday tradition, the Epic game store offers a new free game every day to count until the new year. While the Epic Games Store typically lets users know what free games they can expect in advance with its weekly giveaways, it comes with a mystery gaming approach to its holiday celebration. Every day at 10:00 am CT, Epic Games Store users can get a new free mystery game for their collection.

On December 25, Christmas Day, the Epic Games Store is offering one of the most remarkable mystery games to date. Right now, Epic Games Store users can claim the 2017 first person shooter Prey completely free with no strings attached – all they need is the Epic Games launcher to play it.

Prey, for the uninitiated, is Arkane Studios’ reboot of the Prey franchise. Prey received overwhelmingly positive reviews upon release, with many appearing happy with the new direction Arkane has taken the series. He plays the same as Arkane Dishonored series, so any fan of these games should definitely consider giving Prey one hit and claim it while it’s a giveaway through the Epic Games Store.

Prey replace Pathfinder: Kingmaker – Enhanced Edition Plus as the current free-to-play game from the Epic Games Store and at 10:00 am CT on December 26, it will also be replaced. The Epic Games Store doesn’t announce new free-to-play games in advance, but it does provide some clues as to what fans can expect. If fans watch closely, they’ll see that the wrapping paper used to conceal the identity of the upcoming free-to-play game has a symbol on it that teases what exactly the game is.

The symbol on the wrapping paper this time around appears to be a hand, and according to some reliable leaks, it looks like the December 26 free-to-play Epic Games Store is none other than Remedy Entertainment’s. Control. It would be a big deal if it were true, because Control has won numerous awards and received widespread critical acclaim by the time of its original release in 2019.

The only downside to Control being the next free to play game, assuming the rumors and predictions are true, will Control was previously free on the Epic Games Store. But while many Epic Games Store users may have already claimed Control for free there are likely to be others who missed the first time and will jump at the chance to get the game. Epic Games Store users can grab Prey for free until we see if Control is really the next free game or if that’s a whole different story.
