This time, the company plans to give away 15 games with a new title every day from Dec. 16 through to Dec. 30.

This isn't the first time Epic Games has planned to give its loyal fans a series of gifts this holiday season. The company has been running this promotion since 2019, giving away 12 titles that year and 15 titles in 2020. It plans to continue the trend into 2021 with 15 titles up for grabs. A new title will be available to download at no additional cost every day, with the final game allegedly up for grabs spanning an entire week.

Epic Games Holiday Giveaway Games: All 15 Titles

As stated above, Epic Games is set to give away 15 titles on its website completely for free starting on Thursday, Dec. 16. According to leaks, each game will be available for 24 hours before rotating out of the store to make way for the next reveal. The final game will be up for grabs for an entire week. Unfortunately, however, DBLTAP cannot confirm this timetable; nor can we verify which games will be joining the list.

It appears that Epic plans to unveil a new "gift" every day. Once each game is confirmed, this article will be updated to include it.

Fans allege that the first game will be Shenmue 3. We'll know for sure once the promotion gets underway.
