Free title just announced for the Epic Games Store. Will go live on the 10th when Minit drops off

Space DLC is also free.




Colonize Mars and discover her secrets, with minimal casualties.Welcome Home! The time has come to stake your claim on the Red Planet and build the first functioning human colonies on Mars! All you need are supplies, oxygen, decades of training, experience with sandstorms, and a can-do attitude to discover the purpose of those weird black cubes that appeared out of nowhere. With a bit of sprucing up, this place is going to be awesome!

Surviving Mars is a sci-fi city builder all about colonizing Mars and surviving the process. Choose a space agency for resources and financial support before determining a location for your colony. Build domes and infrastructure, research new possibilities and utilize drones to unlock more elaborate ways to shape and expand your settlement. Cultivate your own food, mine minerals or just relax by the bar after a hard day’s work. Most important of all, though, is keeping your colonists alive. Not an easy task on a strange new planet.

There will be challenges to overcome. Execute your strategy and improve your colony’s chances of survival while unlocking the mysteries of this alien world. Are you ready? Mars is waiting for you.

Do you really notice the launchers? If i want to play i click on the games icon. Whatever the launcher it loads swiftly enough and it's not as though it makes any difference during playing the game.
Just for the record - before my post gets deleted

Guys, the Space Race DLC (usually £9.99) is also free, so make sure to claim that too.

Free stuff is pretty cheap! buying their way into our hearts in some ways!
Fun game. Also available on PC Game Pass for anyone not comfortable with EGS.
Hot, horrible trying to play on the xbox with a controller, probably a lot easier and more fun with a mouse

Yea but they plan to stop the freebies and charge in the future.

yeh its not like they are being kind. They are just trying to build people librarys so they actually use the epic launcher - they can then start making the same sort of cash as Valve. Or so they hope.....
Excellent, I'm building up a nice library of free Epic games. Currently playing Arkham Asylum.

The whole arkham series is quality! But a bit repeitive

Yeah, i know what you mean. I played it when it first came out but felt it was repetitive so never completed it, think I got roughly halfway through. I always regretted not finishing it. Being a freebie has given me the chance to put this right.

The differences ate personable. I play with over 200 people from across the globe. Steam wins hands down, those games on other lau chers dnt stand a chance. Destiny came back to steam for one reason.... numbers

Yes but to be fair, Steam charge an extortionate amount to publishers for each sale.
I don’t blame developers for having their own launchers or 3rd parties trying to compete. Most of my games 300+ are Steam but I really don’t mind using Origin, Uplay etc. Yes ideally there would be 1, but flexibility and competition is one of the main things about the PC.

Looks interesting. Might try it. I’m not too fussed about the launchers I have, although when you add the likes of Bethesda and Blizzard for which I’ve only got a couple of games and then Twitch Prime and Epic which I’ve got loads of games but never likely to play abut it them.... it seems to make more sense ........ as long as there are filters to hide the 100s of games I have and will never play.

Totally agreed. Steam or nothing I say. No matter how many free games epic gives away, I'll never install their dodgy software.
This is a fantastic game. I don't have it on the PC but have sunk more hours than I care to admit on the PS4!

I paid nearly double to get GTA on Steam to avoid needing to install Rockstar Launcher and sure enough they updated it so its mandatory. Im with you on this, too many launchers! Just need Steam thats it, Epic cant tempt me with the free games.
Impressed with Epic so far. Steam has been a dominant force for too long
People moan about launchers. I remember the days when I had to install from.disc, insert the disc to play, download and apply patches manually for each and every game. Add to this separate friends lists for each and every game.
Having a few different launchers is really no big deal compared to how it used to be.

I'm curious - what's dodgy about Epic Launcher? Is it more or less dodgy than its competitors?

Like a lot of people I've got multiple launchers installed on my gaming rig. It's just something that I've come to accept as part and parcel of modern pc gaming - doesn't bother me particularly as I just add everything to Steam anyway! But I am curious to learn what motivated you to post the above.

Genuine question from a position of naivety.

You know that once downloaded on the EGS, the game is DRM-free, right? Click the exe and it works, so you don't even need to relaunch the client.
Necrotix04/10/2019 00:17

Totally agreed. Steam or nothing I say.


Well yeah, when you use software that has had a monopoly on the marketplace for so long, old habits die hard. But that doesn't mean that everything else is bad just because you choose Steam.

EA justifiably get heat for their business practices but it's hard to argue that they haven't put the work into making Origin a decent platform. UI is pleasent, downloads are fast, and Origin Access is fantastic value for money.

Uplay also does a lot of things right, like their rewards system for achievements, allowing you to access extras that would otherwise be behind a pay wall.

GOG is DRM Free and that should matter more to people than it does. Also great support for retro classics.

And Epic is offering free games as a way of gamewill after a rocky start (even if Tim Sweeney really needs to stop doing his own PR).

Well what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Stakes are high and the level of competition keeps rising every single week. Let's keep pushing till the end

Because they're actually good. Epic didn't really launch very well
Little confused so these games stay in your library when they change the offer to a new game?

So effectively you own it its not like just free to play for couple of weeks then its another new game.

Its added Minit now so in couple of weeks can play that and mars...
Thanks think I need a coffe.

Games are free for life and not a trial.
