The Epic Games Store Holiday Sale has started and there will be 15 days of free games incorporated into the offers available. Cities: Skylines is the first free game that is now available for download until Dec 18. Big titles such as Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, Immortals: Fenyx Rising, and the Premium Edition of GTA V are available to buy with attractive discounts.

Cities: Skylines has been revealed as the first free game for Epic Games Store account holders for this year’s Holiday Sale. Epic has announced that there will be 15 days of free games for people to look forward to, along with a huge list of discounted titles. On top of that, the company is offering money-off coupons (US$10, £10, €10, etc.) in numerous currencies for gamers to utilize when making a qualifying purchase.

All Epic Games Store account holders have to do to get their free game is sign into the site and simply place an order for Cities: Skylines. The city-building game will then be added to the user’s library ready for installation. Cities: Skylines was released in 2015 and was praised for its complex and involved gameplay, with the PC version of the game currently sitting on high scores of 85 (critics) and 8.8 (users) on Metacritic. It might not be Dying Light, as had been rumored, but it’s still a strong start for this festive giveaway.

As for discounted games, users can find some titles with up to 90% off in the long list of offers, such as Super Meat Boy and Sherlock Holmes Crimes & Punishments. However, in regard to bigger titles, there are still huge discounts to be had. A decent 17% has been knocked off Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla and there is 33% off Immortals: Fenyx Rising. Account holders can get GTA V: Premium Edition for half price, enjoy 60% off Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, and there is 75% off a purchase of Civilization VI too.
