It’s Thursday, which means that once again the Epic Games Store is bringing a new free game to users: Frostpunk! Available now, players can acquire the title at no cost until June 10. For those unfamiliar with how free games work on the Epic Games Store, the title should only be claimed on that specific date. Those who are too busy playing other things right now can claim the game and access it whenever they have time. This is a great benefit for users, and it might just help some players discover a new favorite game!
The Epic Games Store announced its latest freebie in a brief trailer shared on Twitter, which can be found embedded below.

Released in 2018, Frostpunk is a city-building / strategy game set in a post-apocalyptic world. Players are tasked with building the very last city on Earth and keeping its citizens alive and thriving. The game offers several modes to choose from, which offer different experiences depending on the style of the player. Endurance mode offers a tall order, while Serenity is a more laid back experience. There are also several maps with different obstacles and weather conditions that players have to face. It certainly looks like the game will have a lot of replay value to keep people coming back!
Unfortunately, the Epic Games Store has not revealed which game will be available next week. Sometimes the platform offers a preview of what will be offered for free the following week, which can help prevent some users from making a purchase only to find out that the game is free a few days later. For now, Epic Games Store users will just have to wait and see what could happen next!
