What games are available for Epic Games' 15 Days of Free Games?

When it comes to knowing which games are free and part of the promotion, the company isn't sharing those details. It's not until the game goes up for sale that potential players will find out which title it is. 

According to the holiday sale's landing page, Epic Games suggests interested people put games they really want in their wish list that way they'll be notified if it goes on sale or if it's being offered for free. "Now is the perfect time to browse and add any games you’re interested in to your Wishlist while logged in to your Epic account - you’ll receive a notification if they go on sale," it reads.

On Dec. 17, the first game that was offered in the 15 Days of Free Games list was Cities: Skylines, "a modern take on the classic city simulation. It introduces new gameplay elements to realize the thrill and hardships of creating and maintaining a real city whilst expanding on some well-established tropes of the city building experience."

There have been rumors on what other games will be included in these 15 days, but nothing has been confirmed by Epic Games. 

It already sounds like people are super excited about this promotion because the website for Epic Games has experiencing some issues.

"We're currently experiencing a high volume of traffic and you may encounter slow loading times or potential errors on the Epic Games Store web and launcher at this time," the company wrote in a message. "We appreciate your patience as we work to scale & resolve this, we'll provide an update as soon as we can."

The 15 Days of Free Games will run until Dec. 31, 2020.
