The Epic Mega Sale continues into its second week with new discounts and a surprise freebie, the smash-hit social deduction game, Among Us.
The highlight of the Epic Games Store’s Epic Mega Sale second week isn’t a discount at all. Instead, Innersloth’s multiplayer game of betrayal and teamwork, Among Us, is completely free to download and own.
Following a slow start, Among Us has become a bona fide phenomenon on multiple platforms. It’s not a particularly expensive game, but it’s great to have the option to pick it up on PC, courtesy of Epic’s deep pockets.
Among Us is available to claim from the Epic Games Store until June 3, 2021. Once you have added the game to your account, it’s yours to keep forever.
Elsewhere, this week’s Epic Megadeal is a free Deadly Apparition Starter Pack for free-to-play shooter Rogue Company. More traditional sale discounts include price cuts for Hades, Red Dead Redemption 2, and Kingdom Hearts III, among many other games.
The Epic Games Store Epic Mega Sale runs until June 17, 2021.
We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
