As it turns out, the rumours about that shiny new free game on the Epic Games Store is indeed true, as Sid Meier’s Civilization VI is the next title up for grabs on the digital store, at no cost to you.
Don’t wait too long, though — Civ 6 will only be free until 28 May, so there really shouldn’t be any reason not to get it right now.
The latest instalment of the hugely popular turn-based strategy 4X game series is quite the heavy-hitter. Where players could enjoy hours and hours of that “One more turn” gameplay for US$51.99, now it can be done for the low, low cost of nothing. Not a bad follow-up to the previous week’s free game in GTA V.
After playing the base game, players might then be enticed to try out the expansions in Rise and Fall and Gathering Storm by getting the Platinum Edition Upgrade, which is on sale at the time of writing for US$39.99 (U.P. US$79.99) until 11 June.
Don’t forget to check out all the free games to be had for the month of May too, before the month closes.
Marion has a serious RPG addiction. Sometimes it bleeds into real life; he forgets to sleep because he thinks he has a Witcher’s body clock. Forgive him in advance if he suddenly blurts out terms such as “Mind Flayer” and “Magic Missile”, because never once does he stop thinking about his next Dungeons & Dragons game.
