Epic Games is giving away FREE copies of two excellent games; WatchDogs and The Stanley Parable, starting today and lasting until Thursday, March 26th 2020.
Epic has announced that they will keep the weekly free game giveaway throughout 2020 – make sure to follow us on Twitter, Facebook or Steam to get a reminder when each new free game giveaway launches!
ABOUT THIS WEEKS FREE GAMES:
The first available free game this week is WatchDogs.
WatchDogs is an excellent open-world action game with some unique hacking-magic that makes it a memorable game. Not quite the GTA killer, but at least a very good try.
Get it for free at this link. WatchDogs will be available for free until March 26th 2020.
The second available free game this week is The Stanley Parable
The Stanley Parable is a first person exploration game. You will play as Stanley, and you will not play as Stanley. You will follow a story, you will not follow a story. You will have a choice, you will have no choice.
The game will end, the game will never end. Contradiction follows contradiction, the rules of how games should work are broken, then broken again. This world was not made for you to understand.
Get it for free at this link. The Stanley Parable will be available for free until next Thursday, March 26th 2020.
TLDR; JUST TELL ME HOW TO GET THESE GAMES FOR FREE:
Just head over to Epic Games Store or navigate to the games in their launcher before March 26th 2020, add the games to your cart and checkout. Simple as that. After that, the games are yours to keep, and play, forever.
Make sure to check in next Thursday for the next Epic Games Store free game!

@Blue I think the idea, at least for this event, is that many of these demos would have appeared at GDC last week, had it not been cancelled (or postponed until summer, at the very least). Developers had put together demos for the event, which would have been only available for a limited time due to the nature of such events. As for why they are only available for a limited time on Steam, many of these games are still in development, so I imagine the developers might not want demos floating around that may not be entirely representative of the final product. Plus, it gives people some incentive to try them now, rather than putting it off until later and forgetting about them.
They could always re-release an updated demo on their store page at the time of the game’s release, if they wanted, though I don’t think demos on Steam tend to get that much attention, at least without some event tied to them.
@mightgiro I thought so when’s it finished il add it 2mros
@cryo yes it’s very short time , it’s just that when I was younger demos were free forever maybe the first level of a game but this has a time limit I cant see why a demo shouldn’t be free forever even a short level or two will make you remember the game and maybe buy it someday
First time i come across demo that lasts few days
Hey guys on steam Pleasure Puzzle:Portrait has gone free for a limited time
@Blue The Steam Game Festival actually seems like a pretty interesting idea to get attention out there for upcoming indie titles, especially in light of game conventions getting put on hold for now. These games typically don’t have any significant advertising budgets to speak of, so a lot of times good titles can get overlooked in the sea of shovelware on Steam. Making a demo event like this seems like a good idea to let people test out a variety of games they might think look interesting. Apparently there was one back in December too, but it was only for two days at a busy time of the year, and I completely overlooked it as a result. Even four days seems a bit short though, considering how many game demos are in the list (I counted close to 70). It might be better to make it a week-long event in the future, maybe twice a year.
