Epic Games Store Reveals New Free Game and It's a Big One

Epic Games Store has revealed that tomorrow's free game replacing Civilization VI will be Borderlands: The Handsome Collection. News of tomorrow's new freebie comes way of the official Epic Games Store Twitter account and via a now-deleted tweet promoting the offer. According to the tweet. the game will be made available tomorrow and be free until June 4, which is the following Thursday. After this, it will be replaced with a new free game.

As always, and as the now-removed tweet notes, once you download the game via the Epic Games Store, it's yours to keep forever as long as you maintain the account which it was downloaded on. And that's it. There's no strings attached. Not only can you play the game as much as you want, but having an Epic Games Store account costs literally nothing.

Using the Epic Games Store, Epic Games gives away a free game every week. Sometimes even more. And there are no strings attached to any of the games as the company tries to attract and retains users. Usually, these games are on the smaller side, but lately they've been bangers. Right now it's giving away Civilization VI. And before this, it was giving away Grand Theft Auto V.
