Epic Games Store received a ton of shade when it first hit the market. It was a competitor to Valve’s Steam platform that had the funds to compete. As a result, there were plenty of video game titles picked up and made a timed exclusive for the marketplace launcher. As a result, those who wanted to pick the game up on the Steam platform were left with another long wait.
This has earned Epic Games some heat from players but that isn’t slowing the client. There have been several updates to bring in new features that players already had access to with Valve’s Steam launcher. As the company attempt to close the gap, a new incentive was placed this year to get adopters of the client launcher and that’s simply offering free video game titles.
Each week throughout 2019, Epic Games Store features free video games. You may have just a single title offered one week or several the next. Best of all, it’s free forever just as long as you redeem your copy. There’s nothing required to obtain these games other than having a free account with the Epic Games Store launcher. Today we have a new video game being offered which is Surviving Mars.
Within Surviving Mars players will be on the cold red planet where their sole goal is to manage and oversee the colonization of the new world. Of course, there will be some challenges that will come up giving players some tough obstacles to pass through. This is a city-builder type game as well where players will have to build up their colony and gather resources to maintain their colonization.
If you haven’t already made an Epic Games Store account, you should do so to obtain this game and the upcoming video game titles coming before 2020 arrive as it’s uncertain if this feature will continue within the upcoming year.
