Civilization VI Now Available For Free This Week On Epic Games Store

For this week, EGS has made a decision to release Sid Meier's Civilization VI as its free game title of the week.

Epic Games was highly criticized by fans for their exclusivity deals with both Maneater and Saints Row 3.

Civilization VI will be available for free but for a limited time.

Sid Meier's Civilization is now on the podium!

The latest instalment of the hugely popular turn-based strategy 4X game series is quite the heavy-hitter.

KitGuru says: What do you think of this week's free game?

Everyone who ever likes shopping around or generally buying things would love a discount, but an item that costs $60 but is instead for free? To claim your free game you'll also need to enable a 2-factor authentication at Epic Games Store. Plus, it will keep people at home during this quarantine situation. We shouldn't praise Epic's comparatively lame game launcher just because they're giving away some old games for free. Civilization might not have the same cultural footprint as GTA, but this 2016 game retails for $59.99 on many digital storefronts. The initiative was so successful that during the first hours it was practically impossible to get the game, since the servers were completely collapsed.

Jacob started covering video games and technology in college as a hobby, but it quickly became clear to him that this was what he wanted to do for a living. It now reached its sixth franchise.

Unfortunately, Sid Meier's Civilization VI does not support cross-play between platforms.

The game is now available for free via the Epic Games Store; however, there is a catch.

As always, this is a free to own offer. Therefore, if you really want to enjoy the full game experience, we suggest you get the following expansions: Rise and Fall and last year's Gathering Storm. The coupon only works for games priced $US14.99 ($23) or higher, but it's good through October 31, 2020, so you can save it to use for a future purchase.
