People will have a reason to visit the Epic Games Store each week again in 2022. The company announced how 2021 went for the storefront and what people can expect from 2022. In it, it confirmed that Epic Games Store free games will continue in 2022 too.
How it works is that each week on Thursday, Epic Games offers at least one free game. People have a week to claim it. Once they get it, they own it forever. All they need is an Epic Games Store account to claim it. During special events like the weekly winter holiday sale, the company will offer a free game each day. In 2021, it led that campaign with free copies of Shenmue 3.
In addition to more free games, other 2022 plans came up. There will be more download options. Game Hubs will be introduced. There will be rating and poll systems introduced.
As for Daemon X Machina, this is the mech action game that originally debuted on the Nintendo Switch. A PC version followed in 2020. Originally, that was only available via Steam. But now it is on Epic Games Store as well.
Daemon X Machina is the Epic Games Store free game for January 27, 2022 through February 2, 2022. Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair will be available February 3-10, 2022.
