(UPDATE: 11/6/2020 – 11AM – EPIC Games has announced on their Facebook page that this week’s free game will indeed be Ark Survival: Evolved. The game was supposed to be given away for free last week, but was replaced with Overcooked for some reason. But Overcooked is still a great game, so no complaints there. Be sure to check in on the Epic Game Store launcher tonight at 11PM to claim the game for free.
(UPDATE: 4/6/2020 – 11PM – We were so close, this list got 3 out of 4 game titles right, with Overcooked being offered as this week’s free game instead. ARK Survival: Evolved will apparently be delayed till the 11th of June, so we’ll just have to wait and see if that is true for next week’s free game.
(UPDATE: 28/5/2020 – 11PM – This list has become even more true, now that GTA V and Civilization VI has been offered for free on the EPIC Games Store. Following the list, this week it is The Borderlands: The Handsome Collection that is being given free to all. Just click this link here to claim your free game! For the next and final week of the Epic Games Mystery giveaway, we’ll be waiting for Ark Survival: Evolved!
(UPDATE: 21/5/2020 – 11PM – Civilization VI is now free on the EPIC Games Store. To access the game, click here.) With GTA V and Civilization VI checked off the list, we can’t wait for Borderlands: The Handsome Collection next week!
EPIC Games just released GTA V as its first Mystery Game in conjunction with its EPIC Mega Sale that will happen from the 14th of May to the 11th of June. There were some hiccups when the game was released (Error 500, webpage not loading etc), but gamers did eventually get their copy of the game.
What are the following Mystery Games?
Now, that is the question. What are the following Mystery Games throughout the remainder of the EPIC Mega Sale? According to a leak we found, Grand Theft Auto V was scheduled for this week (14th May). It also shows that Civilization VI, Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, and Ark Survival: Evolved are scheduled for the 21st of May, 28th of May, and 4th of June respectively.
Seeing how these games were not listed in the EPIC Game Sale, it might be a good indication that they will indeed be offered as the free Mystery games for the following weeks. Borderlands 3 is on sale on the EPIC Mega Sale, so it would make sense that the Borderlands Handome Collection would be offered free so users can own the entire collection. The Borderlands: Handome Collection includes Borderlands 2, and the Borderlands Pre-sequel.
There is word that Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be offered as next week’s Mystery Game (21st May). However, that game is currently being offered in the EPIC Mega Sale, so it wouldn’t make sense for Epic Games to sell the game when they are going to give it away for free the next week. That would just infuriate gamers even more.
These are just rumours, so please take this piece of news with a grain of salt. Let’s look forward to next week’s game reveal, at 11PM!
