The Epic Games Store is dishing out free games left, right and centre. If you haven’t been following along the EGS has been trying to entice a lot of people into transitioning to their store by offering free games. Kingdom Come: Deliverance and Aztez are available right now, but along with Faeria, Assassins Creed: Syndicate will be available as of February 20th.

That’s a pretty good deal if you ask me. Assassin’s Creed Syndicate was kind of brushed off as just another Assassin’s Creed after the series had gone stale. Many a mockery had been made when it was first announced as it would be the closest to modern day the series has ever been set (Discounting the real-world animus stuff with Desmond or even Layla), joking the next game would take place in space. But AC: Syndicate was actually quite an enjoyable AC game. To those that missed this entry, now’s your time to give it a try (because it’s free… Did I mention that?)

In our review of AC Syndicate we said: "So while Assassin's Creed Syndicate is light on novelty, it feels like enough fat has been trimmed that this is a more enjoyable experience than any in the series before it. Traversal is once more a joy; the world is massive and believable; the cast of characters roguish and likeable; and for the first time in an age, Assassin's Creed feels like it has some genuine personality to it."

Kingdom Come is also absolutely worth the download, even if you hate Epic Games down to the very core of your soul you might as well download the app to get a free game out of it. Since Kingdom Come leaves the free game marketplace on February 20th just as AC Syndicate comes onto it, download the store app now and you can get yourself two free games for the price of, well, nothing.

Let us know if you download Assassin’s Creed Syndicate and what you think of it! Come on, it’s free!

There is nothing to apologize for. Both are awesome games especially AC Syndicate. And Epic Games Store has been mostly fine in my experience. Buy the game, download it and play. It may not have the extra Steam stuff like trading cards and achievements but I really don't care for that stuff anyway. For me price and availability matter most.

I've been getting free games for a long time now, I just take advantage of them and it's great! Haven't spent a penny on the store yet though.

Those freebies are real cool. Also I did spend money on Epic Store and its been fine in my experience. I played Control, Detroit Become Human, Heavy Rain and Beyond Two Souls without a hitch. I also got Division 2 on it and it basically gave me Division 2 on my Uplay account at a cheaper price. I also got Jedi Fallen Ordr due to regional pricing.

all devs have different platform and their servers sucks and for that games are lagging as hell. Steam/blizzard(its fine)/Epic Games (its literally bad), GOG(its bad), EA(Its lagging even there when i bought fifa and played online, refunded). I want the era of CD's and DVD's to be back or something simillar to hapen. As this happens therell be no problem with online or offline only..

bought fifa(unplayable), bought TW3 on gog (unplayable), free KCD on Epic games (unplayable).... Devs should really step up with their platforms and improve it or just improve CD's and DVD's right they're like floppy disks unused and forgotten. They've internet the era of online only. I even see that The Division 2 is unplayable without having internet.

your argument makes no sense at all. no matter the way the game was presented to the system, if it has to be online to play, then the game will still have issues. you install the game from a cd/dvd, it still stored on an HDD/SSD...

in the exact same way, a download would store it. you arent streaming the game from their servers.

have you thought, that maybe, not these platforms fouls, but the lack of some drivers or components in your pc?

Unplayable like constantly fps drops every second. Before games were separated campaing/online. In order to play some games u need to have constant internet connection with the server if u don't have you won't be able to play the game. Now its all online. How can I play the games with older drivers and to be fine and with older cards and with this one not to be?

I mean... Your setup listed is barely above the minimum to run KCD so that might have something to do with it running poorly. I run the game very well on High/Very High with the HD Graphics Pack downloaded. Only drop under 60 in heavily populated areas.

Are you saying that because it moved to Epic Games the game runs worse? Or are you saying the game runs worse on Epic Games Launcher vs Steam? Because both are untrue lol.

how come I can play some games like gta v/battlefield 4 without lag? Its all due to servers and optimization. Do u remember KCD how the game was in day 1? Do u remember car mechanic simulator on day 1(now its much better)? They're bugged games with bad optimizations and are laggy. Now I've problems with dota 2 which before I didn't. Even its hardware its still less possible since in my laptop

devs sucks at optimizing games for pc's and always provide day 1 with bugs,crash releases. Do u remember red dead redemption 3 how buggy it is (or so its what ive heard). They always look for a way to release bugged product and they always make us pay for dlc's on broken games. Do u remember batman Arkham knight problems? Or games that are: In order to be u need to have constant online connection?

Even Gwent is bugged. Whenever I try to quit the game the game stutters on 1 place and nothing happens. I bet even Cyberpunk will be bug as hell with all this changing release dates cuz of console's. I've more to add but that's it. I'm mad on all the devs right now. DO u know the GTA V stuck at loading screen or the amount of bugs that people use and are not fix?

It's not strange. Ubi receives a lump sum of money so Epic can try to lure in new customers with free games, would be counter-productive if it was free on uplay as well.

Once you bind your Uplay account to your epic account, it should appear in your uplay library.
