Starting from December 17, Epic Games is giving away one free game to players every 24 hours, for fifteen days straight.

Cities: Skyline is currently available for free from the Epic Games Store, but be warned as this deal will expire at 4 PM GMT/8 AM PST/ 11 AM EST. Epic has not yet announced the game that will replace Cities: Skyline, so keep an eye on the Epic Games Store’s free games section here.

What will be the next free game?

Aside from its daily free games, Epic is giving players limitless $10 Epic coupons. Starting with a free $10 Epic coupon redeemable from the Coupon section of your Account Settings, you can use this coupon on any game worth over $13.99.

If this isn’t enough, if you then purchase an eligible game valued at over $14.99, you will then receive yet another $10 Epic coupon! You’ll need to spend these coupons quickly, however, as they will expire on January 7, 2021.

Alongside all the free content Epic is giving out, the Epic Games Store Holiday Sale has now begun. You can save up to 75% on some of the hottest games around, with the likes of Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, Watch Dogs Legion, Red Dead Redemption II and Godfall all seeing price drops.

When do the games stop being free on the Epic Games Store?

The current 15 Days of Free Games will last until the end of December, with a new game replacing the previous free title every 24 hours.

Since there is literally nothing to pay and you get to keep the game forever, there really is no downside to claiming the latest free game from the Epic Games Store. Even if you don’t want to install the games, you can still get the titles for free in case you want to play them at a later date.

Aside from these Christmas free games, Epic also regularly makes other games available for free, having previously made Grand Theft Auto 5 free for a limited time.
