Epic Games Store First Free Game 2022

As per the news story by ComicBook.com, Epic Games Store is continuing the tradition of releasing its free games on Thursdays.

Coincidentally, Jan 6 is the first Thursday of the year, thus the online storefront is unveiling its first free gaming title for 2022.

Epic Games Store is giving away "Gods Will Fall" starting today until Jan. 13, which is free to claim for the said period.

For the uninitiated, Epic Games Store's free games are only available to claim for a limited time. However, those who get to claim these giveaways could now keep the game inside their library forever.

As such, if you get "Gods Will Fall" from Jan. 6 to Jan. 13, you'll get to enjoy the game straight from your library permanently. That basically saves you about $24.99 as the said gaming title typically retails at that price tag, but Epic Games Store is giving it away free of charge.

However, ComicBook.com noted in the same report that the digital storefront of Epic Games is only giving away the base game.

As such, its users will still have to spare $7.99 to get the Valley of the Dormant Gods season pass, which comes with tons of exciting in-game bonuses, such as additional weapons, new gods, and items-to name a few.
