Regular users of the Epic Games Store know the score – every Thursday at 16.00 BST, the platform updates its free games and announces the upcoming freebies. This week, players can already claim two games, with Breathedge and Poker Club becoming available for free on April 27th.
Currently, the free games on the Epic Games Store are Never Alone and Beyond Blue, available to users until the time stated above, when they will be replaced by Breathedge and Poker Club. Beyond Blue, a diving simulation game, received mixed reviews upon its initial release, while Never Alone is a critically acclaimed co-op puzzle/platformer.
Epic Games Store is set to replace Beyond Blue and Never Alone with Breathedge and Poker Club in a week’s time on April 27th, so users should grab them while they still can. After the switch, Breathedge and Poker Club will be available for a week until May 4th. These upcoming free games promise to offer Epic Games Store users diverse gaming experiences.
Full List Of Games
- Never Alone: available for free from April 20 to April 27 on the Epic Games Store
- Beyond Blue: available for free from April 20 to April 27 on the Epic Games Store
- Poker Club: available for free from April 27 to May 4 on the Epic Games Store
- Breathedge: available for free from April 27 to May 4 on the Epic Games Store
Breathedge, a survival game set in deep space, can be claimed for free. Despite mixed reviews upon its original 2021 release, the game offers morbid humour and crafting mechanics typical of survival games. As it is free to claim on the Epic Games Store, there is no harm in trying it out for oneself.
Regrettably, Poker Club received even poorer ratings. It’s a poker simulation game that was first published in 2020, with reviewers criticising its sluggish pace and technical difficulties. Post-release updates apparently resolved some of Poker Club’s larger problems, but Epic Games Store users can download the game for free next week and judge it for themselves.
It remains a mystery what the Epic Games Store will offer for free next month, as users will have to wait until April 27th to find out. It’s sure to be exciting to see what the first batch of free games for the month will be.
