The Epic Games Store’s next free titles have been revealed.
Out of Line and The Forest Quartet will be free to claim from Epic’s PC marketplace from September 21-28.
The former is billed as “a unique adventure game filled with beautiful puzzles all hand-drawn in a unique 2D style,” while the latter is “a 3D narrative puzzler about a gone, but not forgotten, lead singer”.
Out of Line and The Forest Quartet will replace 911 Operator, which is now free to claim until September 21.
911 Operator is “a game about the difficult work of people that manage emergency services,” according to its Epic Games Store listing.
“Answer incoming calls and react properly – give first aid instructions, advise, dispatch the correct number of firemen/police/ambulances, or sometimes – just ignore the call. Play on ANY CITY in the world!”
The Epic Games Store gave away 99 free titles last year (up from 89 in 2021). These games had a combined worth of $2,240 and users claimed over 700 million free titles (down from 765 million in 2021), according to Epic.
The company’s CEO, Tim Sweeney, said in March that players should expect to see further high-profile Epic Games Store exclusives in the future.
And last month the Fortnite maker announced a new Epic Games Store exclusivity scheme.
The Epic First Run programme allows developers of any size to claim 100% of revenue if they agree to make their game exclusive on the Epic Games Store for six months.
After the six months are up, the game will revert to the standard Epic Games Store revenue split of 88% for the developer and 12% for Epic.
