Love it or hate it, the Epic Games Store is still giving out free games for the world to enjoy. The latest on the list is Overcooked which will be free on the Epic Games store until June 11th, 2020. This is a great little game that is perfect for a couch co-op session with friends and family.
What To Expect In Overcooked
With a great single-player campaign and a chaotic couch co-op mode, Overcooked is a great game that will put a smile on anyone’s face. You’ll have to work as part of a team to prepare, cook, and serve up a variety of dishes in increasingly interesting working environments.
If you’re playing with friends, beware. The couch co-op is great fun but the amount of stress that comes with running a kitchen as it quickly falls to ruin is enough to cause a heated moment or two! Don’t worry though, the layout of the kitchens and the dishes that you will be creating lead to some great fun and truly unforgettable co-op moments. It’s been a long time since a co-op game has captivated us this much.
More Free Games On The Way
Overcooked follows on from a long line of free releases on the Epic Game Store lately. Last week we had the chance to get our hands on Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, before that there was Civilization VI and Grand Theft Auto V.
This is a long-running trend that stems back to December 2018 when Subnautica was originally made free on the Epic Games Store to pull more gamers towards the platform. It seems to be working too, the player base on Epic Games Store is steadily growing and we’re even starting to see some features that long time Steam users have been clamoring for such as a self-service refund policy.
Ark: Survival Evolved Coming Soon?
It was originally rumored that we’d be seeing Ark: Survival Evolved land on the platform this week but it appears that this could happen next weekend instead.
Developer Studio Wildcard stated “Given the situation in the US, and the rest of the world right now, we will be rescheduling the ARK in-game celebration until Thursday, June 11,
“We understand that our community has much anticipated the Ark in-game party and the launch of Crystal Isles, and we’re looking forward to sharing all we have prepared for you next week. We felt it would be inappropriate to celebrate milestones during the present time as there are bigger things afoot, and that outweighs any plans we otherwise had. We believe now is the time to be respectful and hear the voices of others.”
While this doesn’t specifically mention a free Epic Games Store giveaway, if the leaks from May turn out to be true, we could see it land on the platform soon.
What do you think of the free games landing on Epic Games Store? Is this enough to pull you away from Steam or don’t you mind having games on different launchers? Let us know down in the comments section below.
