Free Computer Video Games ๐ŸŽฎ โ€“ This Weekโ€™s Worth $65

by Donna Ryder

Epic Games Store gives away free video games on a weekly basis! They've given away over 200 games since this amazing freebie started back in 2019 and is still on-going as of 2022. Each week, on Thursday, at 8am PT / 11am ET, Epic releases one to three free games!

These high-value games are available only for a week to checkout download for free. However, once you go through the checkout process (with no payment method required), the computer game is yours to keep permanently forever! It will be added to your account and free to download, even after the giveaway ends.

The free Epic Games video games page also shows both the current week freebies and the upcoming next week free games.

The current games are available through May 19 at 10:00am.

  • Jotun: Valhalla Edition โ€“ $14.99 value!
  • Prey โ€“ $39.99 value!
  • Redout: Enhanced Edition โ€“ $9.99 value!

Jotun is a hand-drawn action-exploration game set in Norse mythology. In Jotun, you play Thora, a Viking warrior who died an inglorious death and must prove herself to the Gods to enter Valhalla. Impress the Gods!

In Prey, you awaken aboard Talos I, a space station orbiting the moon in the year 2032. You are the key subject of an experiment meant to alter humanity forever โ€“ but things have gone terribly wrong.

NEXT GENERATION AG RACING IS HERE! Redout is a tribute to the classic racing monsters. It is designed to be an uncompromising, fast, tough and satisfying driving experience, soaked in that vertigo that stands at the core of the arcade racing genre.

These games typically retail around $20-$40 and are such a great deal since you keep them forever! Even if you don't intend to play the game now, it's nice having a free pool of new games to try out whenever the mood strikes.
