Free games: Surviving Mars and its Space Race DLC are now free from Epic

The latest EGS giveaway takes you to space

Epic’s weekly play for you to make use of its launcher has yet another free game for your collection, and this offering is an especially nice one. Surviving Mars is now free via the Epic Games Store, as promised alongside the announcement of its follow-up, Surviving the Apocalypse – and so is its first bit of DLC.

You can grab Surviving Mars for free via the store page. As always, it’ll be a zero-dollar purchase that adds the game to your library permanently. While you’re at it, you can also grab the Space Race DLC – which brings AI rivals to complicate your colonising – for free, down from its usual price of $12.99 / £10.29 / €12.99.

A bit of bonus content is also free in the Mysteries Resupply Pack, but that was always a gratis DLC pack. The game’s other DLC is also discounted across the board alongside the EGS promotion, and discounts range from 15% to 33%. Not bad, if you’re looking to finish off the collection.

Next week’s EGS giveaway is another double-header. We’ll have Rutger Hauer-led cyberpunk horror title Observer alongside Remedy’s small scale spin-off, Alan Wake’s American Nightmare. Perfect stuff to set the mood for spooky season.
