My favorite part of the holidays is knowing that some game developers and distribution services won’t stop at anything to get my attention. I’m fine with the result marketing flood because it usually means they can spend about 15 minutes every day – for about a week – collecting a treasure of free games, add-and other time-sensitive goodies.
I already do this about once a week in the Epic Games store and Amazon’s Prime Gaming, so it’s not that hard to keep up with more frantic pace over time the holidays. Free is free, after all. And if you wanted to join my adventures, it couldn’t be easier.
First, you will want visit Ubisoft Connect right now. Every day, from yesterday (hopa) until Saturday, dec. 19, Ubisoft offers one thing for free or another. The company has not specified what you will be rewarded with each day, but digital gifts will vary from the goodies in the game (such as “yesterday”Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Reward package”) For full, free titles. Don’t hold your breath for AAA games to turn them on your digital storage, however, to repeate, free is free. I never say no to one free game, because you never know when you might be inspired to play something new in your large library.
Today, for example, Ubisoft offers a free copy of Starlink: Battle for Atlas. I always wanted to check title, but not enough was sold on it enough to buy it (or any physical accessories for it). Now that it’s free, I’ll definitely invest some time in it in the coming weeks. Here we hope Slippy he can keep it together.
After that, you’ll want to set a daily calendar reminder for Epic games. We’ve already talked about this amazing role-playing games that you need to get for free now, intentional emphasis, but that’s it the tip of the free iceberg. Starting with dec. 17, Epic will provide a free game every day for two weeks. That’s it. There’s no catch; you only need one (free of charge) Epic Games account. Once you add the free games at your library, they are yours forever.
Now, it’s important to adjust your expectations. No, you will not receive a copy of 2077. Cyberpunk, Assassin’s Creed Valhallaor any other game released for $ 60. You will get some older titles, others meh titles and some interesting titles, but don’t expect to stand out as a bandit. Last year’s titles included:
- Little Hell
- Completely accurate combat simulator
- FTL: Faster than light
- The Talos principle
- Hi Neighbor
- Super hot
These are all good games, don’t get me wrong. They just aren’t, Say, Fenyx Rising Immortals. Eif you don’t feel like playing anything now, check every day to add free games to your library. You never know when it might be necessary to scratch your itch for a certain title.
I have not heard of other gaming services that do daily gifts, but if anyone else starts to feel generous, I will update this article with the details. Otherwise, keep checking regular sources for free stuff and you will have a lot to celebrate (and Save it fun) during Quarantine holiday 2020.
