This is a direct result of an update and analysis of the Epic Games Store. The "Free Games" category offered by the store includes 73 games that have been downloaded a total of more than 200 million times. It's a great communications stunt by the founder and CEO of Epic Games, but also a chance for the different games offered for free to have their little moment of glory. After this very positive observation, Epic Games announces that they will be offering weekly free games throughout the year 2020.
