The Epic Games Store’s next free title has been announced

4
Next week’s free Epic Games Store title has been revealed.

Mi’pu’mi Games’ The Lion’s Song, a narrative adventure game focused on a cast of Austrian artists and scientists struggling with creativity and inspiration, will be free to download from May 13-20.

It will replace Pine “an open-world action adventure game set in a simulated world in which humans never reached the top of the food chain,” which normally costs £19.49 but is currently free to download.



Epic claimed in January that the Epic Games Store had attracted over 160 million PC users since launching in December 2018.

The company has been giving away free titles on a weekly basis since the marketplace launched, including 103 games in 2020, collectively worth $2,407 based on US prices. Epic said users claimed over 749 million free titles last year.



Epic Games spent nearly $12 million securing titles for its regular free game giveaways during a nine-month period, according to a document released as part of the ongoing legal battle between Epic and Apple.

It shows that Epic gave away 38 games during the store’s first nine months, each of which involved paying their developers a different ‘buyout price’.

Games like Super Meat Boy, World of Goo and Rime cost Epic $50,000 or less, while three games cost more than $1 million to secure – Subnautica ($1.4 million), Mutant Year Zero ($1 million) and Batman Arkham Collection ($1.5 million).
