Epic Games Store Will Continue Free Weekly Games in 2020

Epic Games promises to continue trend of giving away free PC games on Epic Games Store throughout 2020.

Hitting up one year anniversary last year, Epic Games didn't even slow down on their regular wave of free games offering on Epic Games Store and is still keeps on giving stepping into new year of 2020 with no sign of stopping.

Last year, EGS had 12 days of free games initiative that ran alongside their first annual Holiday Sale. They even entered a new decade giving three titles at once, which they intend to continue on a weekly basis throughout this year as well.

Of course those numbers are very impressive for first year of a new digital distribution outlet but you can easily bet that a lion's share of that percentage has come from their free-to-play online shooter game Fortnite Battle Royale.

Most popular on Epic Store last year was Borderlands 3, Control, Metro Exodus, The Division 2, The Outer Worlds and World War Z. For 2020, they are planning to include Auto Chess, Godfall, Predator: Hunting Grounds and Rogue Company.

You will be playing as a male chameleon named Yooka who is accompanied by Laylee, a female bat in a classic 2D side-scrolling action. However, instead of rehashing old formula, the studio has taken a modern approach for a sequel.

Impossible Lair actually improves upon overall mechanics of the series and its respective genre. Its beautiful design and gameplay concept is quite a blast but having no check-point within the game could be a real bummer sometime.
