Epic Games has been every stingy PC gamer’s paradise since its launch, giving out free PC games every week. And not just any games; Epic Games gave out NBA 2k21 in 2021 and Grand Theft Auto 5 in 2020 completely free. They’ve also had great deals, most recently giving out Alan Wake 2 almost half off, along with Alan Wake Remastered free last month. Now, you can get Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy free until January 11, 2024.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is a third-person action-adventure game that is as fun to play as the movies are to watch. The back-and-forth banter between the characters, the comic book storyline, and the 80s licensed songs from Star-Lord’s playlist are all there. The game will give you about 18 hours of gameplay, and you will play as Star-Lord as the team tries to get out of debt while saving the universe. There is a mix of original and iconic Marvel characters who make cameos. The storyline won The Game Award’s “Best Narrative” prize in 2021, which they describe as the “delicate art of creating a living, breathing story through design of spaces, characters, conflicts, and more.”
How to get Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy free
While the game is free, like any game you wish to download from Epic Games, you will have to open an account on the Epic Game store. Here is how to get any free game from them:
First, open a free account on the Epic Game Store. Every week, usually on Thursdays, the site will release a game or two for you to download and keep for free. No strings attached.
To download, simply go to their free games section to check what games are currently on offer, and to see what games will be free the following week. You’ll only be able to download the games during that one-week window, so grab them right away even if you don’t plan to play them right away. Apart from the limited weekly offerings, the store hosts an entire library of free games available for download.
The easiest way to keep up with the weekly game drops is to check their website periodically or follow their social media accounts. Unfortunately, there’s no way to subscribe to a newsletter or email alert notifying you when a new game drops.
