Update May 21: Civilization VI is now available for free from the Epic Games Store, with the offer lasting until May 28. If the rumor reported below continues to be accurate, then Borderlands: The Handsome Collection will be the next free game after that.

Original story:

Epic Games Store free giveaways are attracting a lot of attention, with the recent news of GTA V being the latest free game actually causing the site’s servers to go down due to enthusiastic gamers trying to download the famous action title from Rockstar. A new rumored leak, which was posted after news about GTA V being offered for free was revealed, has provided a list of the next three titles Epic is allegedly going to give away.

First up is Civilization VI, which is penciled in for a May 21 starting date for the free offer. The hugely popular strategy game was released in 2016 and was well-received by critics. Civ 6 was published by 2K Games, which is also the company behind the next supposed upcoming freebie from Epic: Borderlands: The Handsome Collection. This title will apparently be made available on May 28, with the collection featuring remastered versions of Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and their related DLC.

Lastly, it’s rumored Epic will make Ark: Survival Evolved a free game for a limited time from June 4. The original source of this leak is dubious, so it should be taken with a pinch of salt for the time being. But there are plenty of gamers out there who would be very happy to get their hands on well-known titles like Civilization VI or Borderlands: The Handsome Collection for free.
