It’s Thursday once more, and this week you can pick up Pathway for the low low price of free from the Epic Games Store.
Note: The Escapists 2 was also meant to be free this week, but its launch has been “temporarily delayed.”
If you’re new here, you’ll find a basic rundown on how the free games work and how to claim below. If you’ve read at least one article before, then welcome back! I hope everything’s going well for you.
Claiming free games on the Epic Games Store now requires two-factor authentication as part of Epic’s new security process. You’ll need 2FA enabled on your account in order to claim any free games.
You can claim your game(s) through either your browser or through the official Epic Games Launcher. You’ll need an Epic Games account to claim them, regardless of your method of choice.
It’s free to sign up for an account and the launcher is also completely free to download. No payment information is required to claim your free games, either.
You’ll need the Epic Launcher to play your free game (and any others acquired through the Epic Games Store) but there’s no rush. Once you’ve claimed your game, it’ll simply wait in your library for you to download whenever you feel like it.
The year is 1936…
In a time of global turmoil, Nazi influence spreads inexorably across Europe and the Middle East. Rumors are abound of secret excavations, mysterious artifacts, and even the odd whisperings and tales of gruesome occult rituals…
It’s up to you to assemble a team of bold adventurers to journey through the desert. Explore bunkers and temples of Northern Africa to discover their hidden treasures and secrets before they fall into the hands of Nazi forces.
You can get Pathway for free on the Epic Games Store by following the link here.
Pathway will be free until June 25th, 2020, at 4pm BST. At that time, it’ll regain its usual price tag and AER Memories of Old and Stranger Things 3: The Game will be going for free instead. Check back in next week to see what’s up next, and happy gaming!
