    Before I post about current free games, some info on getting a free £10 coupon from the Epic Games Store.

    Simply register/log in

    Epic Games Store | Download & Play PC Games, Mods, DLC & More – Epic Games

    Visit your account page (top right corner). On the left-hand sidebar there's a Communications tab; tick the box to subscribe to emails (about products, news, events and promos) and you should instantly receive your £10 coupon which can be used to gain even bigger savings in the Halloween sale which began earlier today and ends on 01 November.

    The coupon is valid until 15 November and is automatically applied during checkout. It can be found in the Account drop-down and you should also receive email confirmation.

    Note: the minimum spend for the coupon is £13.99, so if a game is already discounted in the sale, it's possible to pick up some decent bargains. Using the coupon in the past I've bought new releases such as Untitled Goose Game, Outer Wilds, Journey to the Savage Planet, I Am Dead, and Carto for £4.39 - 5.99.

    I read this as being Assassin's Creed being 35 years old and wondered what version of reality I had just stepped into. It's really only 14 years old and that is still making me feel old.

    Thanks for the games @Lily

    @Kindler Oh, but you have point. Now that I've read that sentence again, I can see it's ambiguous. A clearer way of writing it would be 'For Ubisoft's 35th anniversary, it is giving away Assassin's Creed Chronicles Trilogy.' There must be a better sentence than that, but that was the best I could do for a Monday morning E:sweatsmile:

    I didn't realise Assassin's Creed began 14 years ago – now I feel old as well! Prince of Persia: Sands of Time and Beyond Good & Evil, two Ubi games I played multiple times back in the day, are even older than AC E:sob:

    Not a game this time, but DLC which normally retails for £27.99. The base game is permanently free, so both are worth getting if you like multiplayer shooters.

    Rogue Company: Rogue Company

    Epic Pack DLC: Rogue Company Season Four Epic Pack - Epic Games Store
