Every week, Epic Games makes a few games available for free that you would normally have to pay for. During Christmastime, Epic is even giving away a game every single day. Most of the time the line-up consists of semi-popular indie titles, but sometimes there are also AAA games on the list – so what has Epic Games prepared for us this time?
Typically, there are two ways of getting access to an AAA game: Either you just purchase it directly for a (usually) high price, or you subscribe to a video game library service like the Xbox Game Pass. What both ways have in common is that you won't be able to avoid paying for playing.
Luckily, Epic Games offers us a third option from time to time that doesn't cost you a single cent. In fact, Epic makes certain games available for free for a limited time every week – and sometimes there are really great titles on the line-up. So, let's take a look at which game you can grab for free this time and how to get it!

That means 15 free games! What's not to love?
