Hmmm i wonder if there is still a chance of getting Kingdom Come as a finale game




Ooh wow i hope so i really wanted that gamee (almost bought it but was like eh lol)
I remember this was also given through twitch prime


Thanks, Geeky :heavy_heart_exclamation::heavy_heart_exclamation::heavy_heart_exclamation:

Got a question. You know how certain games on Steam, once installed, don’t need the launcher? Does it work for Epic too? I don’t have the launcher installed yet…Just collecting the games. Was just curious :thinking:


It launches the launcher before the game, as far as I can tell, as is the case with most games on Steam as well.

One thing people should know is that if you buy something for Uplay on the Epic Games Store and link your Uplay account, you will have the game show up on Uplay also, so no need to double launch, as Steam asks you to do.


most (indie) games on epic seem to be drm free, so just need to be downloaded, then you can trash the launcher, a few might require a bit of a workaround, i had one where i needed to add a line or something to the exe to play without epic
can’t say which/how many is fully drm free since i’m not keeping track


Actually, Gnuffi has a good point, so this should work. I just kept the launcher installed… So I don’t actually know what would happen if I trash the launcher after installing. Haven’t tried that yet.


i tried a couple before uninstalling, (in the beginning), currently i still have edith finch, slime rancer and the witness installed -without epic launcher
i’ve no clue if they changed or added a steamworks type drm later since i haven’t tried with any of the games in recent months
but if a game is on gog i’m assuming it’s drm free on epic too, (specially since we saw epic use gog files from some dev :grimacing:)


Thanks for the info @Gnuffi :heavy_heart_exclamation::heavy_heart_exclamation::heavy_heart_exclamation:

Due to how unfamiliar I am with Yooka Laylee I suppose.


Whenever you think about Epic games? : )


Haha I see what you did there. I got nothing against either of them, they just need a bit more love and direction.


Usually I just load off the exe files from the folder without needing the launcher. So far it has worked even for bigger releases like the Batman Arkham games. But for those using external launchers like Rayman Legends, I just load it off from Uplay afterwards rather than using Epic Games.


Free Now till Jan 01 at 11:00 AM EST.


Oh wow! I did not think they would be giving out the newer game! This is fantastic! :smiley:


I wonder what the other two are.


Looks like Darksiders II and…

Steep will be up tomorrow.


They will both be back to the usual week-long giveaways, so looks like Epic is planning to continue this? I had thought they were going to be only giving away games for 1 year… Looks like they must have secured some more deals.

@M00, thanks for noticing my failures, I only saw it after you made the edit… :rofl:
