For the past four years, the Epic Games Store has been giving away free games every week. That trend will continue throughout 2023, and every time new free games go live on the store, we’ll be sure to update this page with the latest selection.

Epic Games Store free games this week

As of June 1, Midnight Ghost Hunt is free on the Epic Games Store. The game will be free until June 8 at 8:00 a.m. PT / 11:00 a.m. ET.

Midnight Ghost Hunt is a 4v4 multiplayer game in which four players take on the role of ghosts who hide inside seemingly inconspicuous objects while four ghost hunters try to sniff them out. It’s basically a full-fledged version of the prop hunt game mode that you’ve probably played in Counter-Strike: Source or Call of Duty.

Which games will be free next week?

A mystery game will be free on the Epic Games Store next week.

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, as was the case last December.
