Looks like Epic Games Stores' free Holiday Sale 2020 games list has leaked

Christmas treats.

We already knew that The Epic Games Store was primed to give away free games during its Epic Holiday Sale, but now a cheeky tweet has intimated what might be up for grabs across the whole promotion.

Yesterday, the freebie was The Long Dark, and today it's Defense Grid 1, which all fit with the tweet's predictions. It also includes Cities: Skylines and Oddworld: New N Tasty, which were each given away earlier this week, too.

Here's the tweet:

As PC Gamer points out, you might be surprised to see Darkest Dungeon on the list as it isn't yet available on EGS, but it wouldn't be the first time Epic has surprise-released a new title on its digital PC platform.

Other games aren't dated, so there's no way of knowing when the games will be available for free, but the full list includes Alien: Isolation, Metro 2033, Tropico 5, Inside, Darkest Dungeon, My Time in Portia, Night in the Woods, Stranded Deep, Solitarica, Torchlight 2, and Jurassic World Evolution and appears to be in chronological order.

The Epic Games Store recently launched its Holiday Sale and also brought back its limitless £10 coupon promotion that'll save you even more money on a whole host of digital PC games.

All you need to do is log in to the EGS and claim your voucher from the store page. From there, it'll be automatically applied on any purchase of £13.99 or over (except pre-orders). And then, best of all, you'll get another coupon added to your account to use on the next game you buy. And then the next one, and so on.

What that means is you can get some games for ridiculously cheap, including the likes of open-world adventure Immortals Fenyx Rising, eccentric detective RPG Disco Elysium and the delightfully weird Bugsnax.
