For the past five years, the Epic Games Store has been giving away free PC games each and every week. If you’re looking to boost your collection of PC games without spending any money, there’s no better way to do so. Epic Games is continuing its weekly giveaway in 2024, so for the next 12 months, we’ll be tracking all of the freebies right here.

Epic Games Store free games this week

As of February 22, Super Meat Boy Forever is free to download from the Epic Games Store. The game will be free until February 29 at 8:00 a.m. PT / 11:00 a.m. ET.

Super Meat Boy Forever is a quasi-sequel to the hardcore platformer Super Meat Boy, but there’s a twist — this time, Meat Boy runs on his own. This auto-runner (think Temple Run or Subway Surfers) tasks you with jumping, punching, and kicking in time to take out enemies and clear the level without falling into a pit of spikes or being ground to bits.

Which games will be free next week?

Aerial_Knight’s Never Yield will be available for free at 11:00 a.m. ET on February 29.

How to get Epic Games Store games for free

In order to download the free games on the Epic Games Store, all you need is an Epic Games account. If you don’t already have one, you can sign up for free right here. Once you’re signed in, just head to the game’s store page, click the big GET button, and follow the instructions to add the game to your account for free.

When do free games refresh every week?

Typically, the Epic Games Store refreshes its freebies every Thursday at 8:00 a.m. PT / 11:00 a.m. ET. Every once in a while, Epic will change the schedule and do something cool, like give away a new game every day, which typically happens around the holiday season.
