What you need to know
- Sid Meier's Civilization VI is free on the Epic Games Store right now!
- You can download the game free until May 28.
- You might even qualify for Epic's $10 coupon.
There's a new free game on Epic Games, which means right now you can download Civilization VI at absolutely no cost until May 28.
Every week Epic Games pushes out new free content to its users, last week offering GTA V, which was so popular it crashed the entire store. The game is the sixth iteration of the smash-hit Civilization series, which scored a handy 4.5 out of 5 on Windows Central when it was released back in 2016. From that review
Civilization 6 delivers a nearly flawless 4X experience that gives you everything you already love about the Civilization series, while adding new and interesting facets. Pick a Civilization and take over the world, whether that means wiping out every other major Civilization on the planet, or by exerting your control via science. There is tons to do, and we only barely scratched the surface here.
You won't get any of Civilization VI's add ons, but this is still an absolutely barn-storming deal. What's more, as with GTA V last week, downloading the free game might well grant you a $/£10 voucher as part of the Epic Mega Sale, which will run until June 11. The voucher grants you $10 off a game as long as it's worth more than $15 before you apply the discount.
