Generally, we know what the next free game on the Epic Game Store will be about a week before the title is readily available. For the last several weeks, however, Epic has only told us that the next title will be a mystery game, requiring folks to wait until the game is free before learning what it is. We’ve been waiting for news on the next free title since Frostpunk went free last week.
Well, now we know: Remedy’s Control is the Epic Games Store’s next free game. Control replaces Frostpunk, which was free from June 3rd to 10th. Control will be free until June 17th. Control is a “supernatural 3rd person action-adventure [that] will challenge you to master the combination of supernatural abilities, modifiable loadouts and reactive environments while fighting through a deep and unpredictable world.” We loved the game and its two DLC packs, The Foundation and AWE, when we reviewed them. Unfortunately, the free version on the Epic Games Store is not the Ultimate Edition, and does not include the game’s DLC.
For the first time in several weeks, we’ve also learned what the next free games will be before they launch. Yes, I said games, plural. Following Control, the next two free games will be Hell is Other Demons and Overcooked! 2, both of which will be available from June 17th to 24th.
