Death Stranding is free to keep on PC this week via EGS, and it’s worth taking a punt on

Epic Games has revealed the latest freebie for the EGS, and it’s none other than the oddball cross-country adventure Death Stranding. Note that this is a full week of freebie availability (through May 25 at 11AM ET), which is a massive step up from the prior “24-hour use it or lose it” promotion that ran in December of 2022. All you need to do is follow the link here (or get it directly through the Epic Games launcher) and you’re good to go.

When playing through Death Stranding pre-launch in complete isolation, I had no clue how the general public would respond to it. It was such a bizarre big swing, and perfectly on-brand for Kojima. But even without the Metal Gear name attached, it did fairly well for itself; spreading to multiple platforms beyond its PS4 launch, and a sequel is fully confirmed, amid other multimedia opportunities.

If you haven’t played it yet, give it a go! I mean it’s free for a week, so even if it’s ultra-low on your priority list, you’ll probably get around to clicking “forget password” on your lapsed Epic Games account at some point…right?!

What’s next for Epic Games Store freebies?

Next up is another “mystery game” that Epic has been hyping for some time now, due out in five days. If you haven’t already, bookmark this page and periodically go back to it and redeem whatever is there.
