Epic Games free games list: What free games are on the Epic Games Store right now?

Plus a list of all previous free games on the Epic Games Store

What free games are on the Epic Games Store right now? Since it launched in late 2018, the Epic Games Store has become known for giving away one or more of its games each week for free. Not just to play, but to own. Forever.

We think that's something quite special, and worth celebrating. It's also well worth you logging into your Epic account every week or so and adding the new week's free game into your library even if it's not the kind of game you feel like playing. After all, you might change your mind, and it costs you nothing to pick it up and own it forever.

Below we'll highlight which is the currently free game on the Epic Games Store, and which free game is coming up next week. We'll also give you a rundown of every permanently free game on the Epic Store, and every game that has ever been made free as part of Epic's weekly deals, dating all the way back to December 2018.

Epic Games free games: What's free right now?

Warriors in a variety of medieval battle garments, but clearly depicted as belonging to "red" and "blue" teams, fight a furious and bloody battle in a courtyard hemmed in by thatch-roofed buildings.

Mordhau (free until April 20)

Multiplayer medieval hack-and-slasher Mordhau offers a detailed and realistic depiction of all-out historical warfare, alongside tactical team games in thematically appropriate modes.

A man in space marine armour and sunglasses fires a gun directly into the chest of a skeletal dinosaur creature, which is bleeding both red and bright green.

What's the next Epic Games free game?

Beyond Blue (free from April 20-27)

This gentle indie game allows you to immerse yourself in the atmsophere of the ocean, exploring detailed underwater environments at your own pace.

A small girl in indigenous clothing looks slightly surprised as a white fox presses up close to her face. The area around them is snowy, but seems to be part of a village.

Never Alone (free from April 20-27)

Prepare to cry until your body is fully desiccated in this puzzle-platformer about a child and her fox friend attempting to avert the end of life as they know it.
