KEY POINTS

  • The Epic Games Store mystery games run ends on June 17
  • Fans are hopeful that the store would bring back the mystery game promotion soon
  • Epic Games Store is giving away two free titles from June 17 until June 24

The Epic Games Store built up a lot of hype during its fan-favorite Mega Sale with its mystery games run and it seems that the digital storefront maintained that momentum up to the very end as it strategically concludes its giveaway with a bang.

As its fourth free mystery game, Epic Games Store offered the popular sci-fi action title "Control" followed by Remedy's "Alan Wake." Moreover, the digital storefront launched the popular gacha game from miHoyo, "Genshin Impact." To celebrate the game's release on the Epic Games Store, fans get a discount code that they could use for the game's microtransactions. 

Customers who log into the Epic Games Store can get a microtransaction voucher for "Genshin Impact." This promotion was offered before as part of the digital storefront's "Discover: Free Games" project. Most recently, Epic offered $100 worth of free in-game content for games like "Idle Champions" and "Forgotten Realms."

To top it all, Epic Games Store is scheduled to give several indie titles for free in the second half of June 2020. Following its Mega Sale, which concludes on Thursday, the digital storefront will give away two games from June 17 until June 24. Fans can get their hands on "Hell Is Other Demons" and "Overcooked 2" within that time frame for free.

"Hell Is Other Demons" is an arcade shooter title with bold colors and a solid synth-wave soundtrack. The game was developed by Cuddle Monster AB and published by Kongregate Inc. Meanwhile, "Overcooked 2" is a co-op cooking simulation game developed by Team17. It was hailed as the Best Family Game by The Game Awards.

There is a great chance that Epic Games Store will announce the next batch of free games as soon as both "Hell Is Other Demons" and "Overcooked 2" are out. Some fans believe that the digital storefront might bring back its free mystery games promo at some point, probably by December. In 2020, Epic Games Store offered an advent calendar of free titles that were used to countdown to the day until Christmas. 

Right now, it is not yet clear if the store is going to repeat the same promotion.
