Free Games Appeal


A lot of us have our Epic accounts because of the free games it offers weekly. We come back every week to check and claim the free games.



If you think that these games don’t sell after being a free giveaway, you are mistaken.

What’s amazing is that after being a free giveaway, the game’s sales on the Epic Game Store increases. This is also true for other platforms like Steam.

Tim Sweeny, founder of Epic Games Store explains that “You’re not going to go out and buy if you’re not into games like Satisfactory, you’re not going to go out and spend money to buy Satisfactory but if you get it for free you realize it’s an awesome game.”

Having the game available for free for a whole week makes a lot of people aware of it and would have enough time to get it for free.

After playing the game for free on Epic, the tendency is that those same players purchase the game on their chosen platform.

Also, what usually happens is that games that are of the same genre get more sales too!

An example is when a horror game is made free on Epic, those who were curious about the game, even though are not into horror games, try it out and enjoy it. The next time a horror game is launched they are more likely to make the purchase.

Epic Game Store’s weekly free games are actually good advertisements for the games, publishers, developers and even the whole genre.




It is insisted that the free game giveaways are only advantageous if the number of accounts created as well as users continue to rise.

If the trend continues, Epic anticipates that by 2024, the Epic Games Store will be profitable.

Right now, we cannot say if Epic Game Store can rival Steam. Perhaps we will know in a few years.
