Epic Games Store’s Freebies for July and August 2021
For the last few years, Epic Games Store has offered a different package than other subscription services, offering certain games free for a week, followed by another free game after that, and will continue doing so in July and August 2021.
Right now, Defense Grid: The Awakening and Verdun are free games at the Epic Games Store. It is the second time Defense Grid: The Awakening has been featured on Epic Games Store as a free title. At the end of last year, Defense Grid: The Awakening was made free on the Epic Games Store as part of its advent calendar promotion. In contrast, Verdun is a multiplayer military FPS set in World War I. Claim these free games until July 29 at 10:00 am CT.
Mothergunship and Train Sim World 2 were free Epic Games Store games for July 29, thus making them the first free EGS games for August 2021 too. Usually, games available on the Epic Games Store run for one week free of charge. Therefore, The first free Epic Games Store games for August 2021 will then be Mothergunship and Train Sim World 2. Those games will be free until August 5 at 10:00am CT.
In the weeks leading up to July 29, Defense Grid: The Awakening and Verdun will no longer be featured as free games, and will be replaced by Mothergunship and Train Sim World 2. At the time of its original release, Mothergunship earned mixed reviews as a bullet hell roguelike FPS. There’s nothing more to Train Sim World 2 than what it implies: it’s a simulation-style game about trains.
