The Epic Games Store Free Games for September 22 Are the Best Kind of Time Sinks

On September 22, Epic Games Store is putting quantity forward in the best way possible, with two games that will be major time sinks for fans.

One of the best parts about the Epic Game Store‘s weekly game giveaways is that there are no real expectations as to the type of content fans will receive. It gives away everything, big and small, and some weeks’ offerings are eerily similar and others are completely different. One could argue that the Epic Games Store has a tendency for indie games, and that’s true enough, but its selection ensures variety in whatever games it offers. Indie games are great for just that.


Variety is the spice of life, as they say, and it’s equally important for any gaming service like Epic Games Store. Its current free games are The Captain and Spirit of the North, which are both interesting indie games, and the next selection will be available on September 22 at 10 am CT. This offering is wildly different in content but required huge investments from the player.

Epic Games Store is Giving Away Hundreds of Hours of Content for Free

Ark: Survival Evolved and Gloomhaven are the next major giveaways on the Epic Games Store. Ark hardly needs any introduction, but it’s an action-adventure survival sandbox game where players are thrust into a world where they must survive alongside its dinosaur inhabitants. Meanwhile, Gloomhaven is a dungeon-crawling tactics RPG derived from the tabletop game of the same name. A dinosaur game and a tabletop adaptation not involving dinosaurs by large are about as different as they come, but they do have one major thing in common.

Because Ark: Survival Evolved‘s maps are so intense, core content can take scores of hours to beat. Combine that with its open sandbox approach to gameplay, and players are easily investing hundreds of hours into Ark: Survival Evolved and may never even see the “end.” The open nature of the game is to the benefit for anyone who loves dinosaurs and wants to take their lowly character to a master survivor. Meanwhile, Gloomhaven has 95 main quests, 17 playable classes, and an in-depth approach to its content, where the main campaign alone will easily take hundreds of hours to beat, alongside other odds and ends. In short, fans are getting tons of hours on the Epic Games Store, all for free, and the quality of the content certainly justifies how much of it there is.

One benefit of Epic Game Store always revealing its content ahead of time is players can plan. If someone is looking for a short game, they won’t get it on September 22, but the next week could be completely different. If someone is looking for a time sink, they are getting the best value with Epic Games Store with its next offering.

Epic Games Store users get a handful of free games every month.
