Epic Games continues its year-long promotion of the company’s Epic Games Store with three games that are free to get this week. Football Manager 2020, Watch Dogs 2, and Stick it to the man are available for free until September 24, 2020 on the Epic Games Store.
You do need to download the store to your device and sign-in with a free account to claim the games, but that is all the only hurdle in the entire process.
Once signed-in, scroll down to the free games section on the start page. There you find listed the latest free games, and may also browse upcoming free games if you choose to.
All that it takes from that point on is to click on the game you are interested in to open its store profile page. You find the “get” button that page and the price should display as free. Hit the get button and follow the checkout process; since you don’t have to pay anything to get the game, it is not necessary to enter payment information. Just select “place the order”, and agree to the refund and right of withdrawal information to complete the process.
A notification should be displayed stating that the game you selected is ready to be installed on the device. You find it under your games listing in the Store interface as well at any time to install it from that location.
In case you are wondering, here is a quick summary of each of the games that you can get for free currently on the Store:
- Football Manager 2020 is the latest in Sega’s Football Manager series of games for PC. It features 116 leagues inn 53 countries as well as national teams. As the manager of a football club, it is your responsibility to develop the club in career mode, convince players to join the team or sell them, use the tactics generator, manage youth operations, watch games, and a lot more. Supports cross-platform play with Steam users who own the game as well.
- Watch Dogs 2 is the second Watch Dogs title; the first was released in 2014 and it received favorable reviews but was criticized heavily for the discrepancy between preview imagery and graphics quality of the actual game. The second part is an action-adventure game with a hacking-focus just like the first. Released in 2016, it improved many of the main points of criticism of the first.
- Stick It To The Man is a rather crazy sounding title as the entire game world is made out of paper and stickers. It is an adventure game featuring interesting visuals and good voice acting.
Football Manager 2020 is an excellent game and if you are into open world explorative games, Watch Dogs 2 may be too. Unless you are opposed to using the Epic Games Store, there is little reason not to grab these games before September 24, 2020.
