Not content with raising the weekly game count, Epic went even further with six free games available for download from its store. The caveat is that they are all Batman themed, so if you don't like Batman, well, you're out of luck.
First, games aimed directly at adults, which come in the form of the Batman Arkham Collection. This includes all three Batman titles developed by Rocksteady, namely masterful Arkham Asylum of 2009 and his hits, Arkham City and Arkham Knight. However, the festive Arkham Origins of Warner Bros Montreal cannot be found.
All three games in the Arkham Collection are top notch, combining deliciously gadget-driven third-person stealth action and thrilling amounts of detective work, as is suitable for the Dark Knight.
And each one unfolds in an open world of ever-widening reach, from the outskirts of Arkham Asylum to the slums of Arkham City and finally Gotham City in its entirety for the third game. In short, they are worth being stolen while they are free.
For the second batch of Batman titles currently available for free from the Epic Store, you'll find all three Lego Batman games. As you might imagine, they are very family-oriented – each using the usual affordable (and increasingly open-world combination) of Traveller's Tales of platforms and huge fights – but there's fun for all ages here too, thanks to the show's eye-catching humor and lots of fan service.
Batman: Arkham Asylum, Arkham City, Arkham Knight, Lego Batman: The Video Game, Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes and Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham are available for download now from Epic Store and the free offer continues through September 26.
And if you are wondering why all these Batman games are currently free, it probably has something to do with the fact that this Saturday, September 21, is officially Batman Day – with this year marking the 80th anniversary.
And it seems the giveaways aren't the only celebration Epic has planned for the occasion; Dataminers have recently uncovered evidence of what appears to be a Batman-themed time-limited event in the latest release of Fortnite.
