Epic Games continues to throw the house out the window. After having Grand Theft Auto V free for a week, the company is offering Sid Meier’s Civilization VI for the same price. You can download it for free until May 28 and keep it in your Epic Games Store library forever.
Civilization 6 is the latest installment in the legendary strategy video game saga created by Sid Meier in the 90s. It launched in October 2016 for PC and Mac, and later came to iOS, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. In any Civilization game, the objective is to develop a civilization from a small settlement to become an economic and military power.
Epic Games started giving away games in its store in 2019, but the level of titles it is giving away this month has taken us by surprise. We do not know if it is part of a daring strategy to end Steam, but we know (or think we know) which are the next two games that will be free.
According to a leak that got Civilization 6 right, the Epic Games Store plans to offer Borderlands: The Handsome Collection for free next week (May 28-June 4) and Ark: Survival Evolved the following week (June 4-11). ), two other known titles to maintain high level, but without getting to throw Store servers as happened with GTA 5 last week.
