This week's free game from the EGS.
Civilization VI

Last week, the Epic Games Store gave away Grand Theft Auto V: Premium Edition (affiliate link), which is now just $14.99 (USD) during the Epic Mega Sale. This actually translates to $4.99 after the added $10 off coupon that Epic gives you for the sale duration. This week, another high-profile title is available for free. That title is a favorite among strategy fans and is none other than Civilization VI.

This free giveaway on Civ VI runs from now through to May 28 at 11AM (PT). Once you add it to your Epic Games Store account, it's yours to keep forever. If you decide to buy any of the expansions, DLC, or other add-ons from the Epic Games Store, make sure to use affiliate code "zips" at checkout. I appreciate what ever help I can get on that.

Civilization VI offers new ways to interact with your world, expand your empire across the map, advance your culture, and compete against history’s greatest leaders to build a civilization that will stand the test of time.

See the marvels of your empire spread across the map like never before. Each city spans multiple tiles so you can custom build your cities to take full advantage of the local terrain.

Unlock boosts that speed your civilization’s progress through history. To advance more quickly, use your units to actively explore, develop your environment, and discover new cultures.

Interactions with other civilizations change over the course of the game, from primitive first interactions where conflict is a fact of life, to late game alliances and negotiations.

Expanding on the “one unit per tile” design, support units can now be embedded with other units, like anti-tank support with infantry, or a warrior with settlers. Similar units can also be combined to form powerful “Corps” units.

In addition to traditional multiplayer modes, cooperate and compete with your friends in a wide variety of situations all designed to be easily completed in a single session.

Civilization VI provides veteran players new ways to build and tune their civilization for the greatest chance of success. New tutorial systems introduce new players to the underlying concepts so they can easily get started.
