If you’re a video game fan looking to save some cash on the very best games, then you simply must check out these two incredible offers on PC. As part of the ongoing rivalry between Steam and the Epic Games Store, both online stores are giving away blockbuster games for free. For a limited time only, Steam users can download and keep the hugely popular Ark Survival Evolved, while Epic Games Store customers can pick up a free copy of Maneater.
Available as a free download from now until 6pm BST UK time on June 19, Ark is a survival game with a huge online following.
“ARK: Survival Evolved is free-to-permanently-own for anyone who claims the game before 10 am PDT on June 19!” reads a Steam post. “This is a limited-time offer, so aspiring survivalists should get it now to join the adventure!”
The game itself tasks players with surviving on an island populated by deadly prehistoric creatures. To do so you’ll need to scavenge for items, build settlements, craft weapons and either team up with or attack other players.
“Stranded on the shores of a mysterious island, you must learn to survive. Use your cunning to kill or tame the primeval creatures roaming the land, and encounter other players to survive, dominate… and escape!”
Representing a saving of more than £20 on the usual asking price, simply login to Steam, head over to the Ark Survival Evolved store page and click the ‘Add to Account’ button to redeem. Once you’ve added the game to your account, it’s yours to keep.
Over on the Epic Games Store, customers can pick up a free copy of shark-based role-playing game Maneater.
The entertaining “ShaRkPG” sees players live out the ultimate power fantasy, as they evolve a small shark into a deadly killer.
“Starting as a small shark pup you are tasked with surviving the harsh world while eating your way up the ecosystem.
“To do this you will explore a large and varied open world encountering diverse enemies – both human and wildlife. Find the right resources and you can grow and evolve far beyond what nature intended, allowing the player to become a massive shark, an apex predator of legends. Eat. Explore. Evolve.”
Representing a saving of £34.99, Maneater is available as a free download until 3.59pm BST on June 16, so you’ll need to act fast in order to claim your free copy.
Simply login to your Epic Games account, head over to the Maneater store page and click the ‘Get’ button to add it to your collection.
