Epic Games store is confirmed to again launch a campaign to provide free games to PC gamers this December 2020. Just like last year, players can get a new game by simply logging in and pressing 2 buttons. You can check out the sale here. This page will be continuously updated once news of the free games have been confirmed.

This can be seen as a bid for players to stay longer on their storefront, pulling them away from Steam, the current leading PC games storefront. Of course, more time in Epic Games Store browsing games can lead to more sales. And probably a bit of brand loyalty. Either way, discounts and free games are without question a boon to PC gamers.
Epic Games Free Games For December 2020
These games are only available for 24 hours once they are up. Don’t forget to add them and check them out everyday. Free is free. If you are able to add them to cart and purchase them for the sweet price of 0, you get to keep them forever (or until Epic Games wants you to).

Clues Are On The Teaser
If you have a knack for solving things, you can take a shot by looking at the image posts on the Epic Games Home page. They change everyday and in them you can find a clue that points out to what the next game would be. It can be exciting if you’re into these kind of things but if not, you can just wait for 24 hours for the release.
