Several weeks ago, an ambitious roadmap for Epic Games Store’s free games was leaked, covering titles like Civilization VI and Borderlands. While it wasn’t easy at first to guarantee the accuracy of the list, as it became clear that the latest game on the list would also end up as a free gift, it’s been a long time coming.
Nothing could be further from the truth. Through an announcement shared in advance on Epic Games’ Facebook, we know that today, Thursday June 11th, we will be able to download ARK: Survival Evolved from EGS at no extra cost. It will not be the only one: Samurai Shodown NeoGeo Collection will also be available to us, in commemoration of the 30th anniversary of the legendary console. As already announced, it will first arrive on this platform as an exclusive.
Currently, ARK players enjoy the Genesis expansions, taming such imaginative creatures as a turtle with a small island to build a house on and using all sorts of new weapons and gadgets… although the version to be delivered on EGS will be more basic. Recently, he introduced a new aerial saurian, the Tropeognathus.
As for Samurai Shodown, a little reminder: SNK and Twitch also announced a deal to give Twitch Prime subscribers more than 20 commemorative games, so if you like retro, you might want to keep track of these content packages. While these games are coming, there’s still time to get your hands on the fun Overcooked in the Epic Games Store.
