Civ 6 is free now on the EGS. Looks like the leaks were correct.

Only for Windows...

Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel for free at Epic? How can you say no? Okay okay, Windows only, but still! Borderlands 2 is one of my most played games... Almost the best shooter in existence!

Very disappointed! Was hoping to get TPS for free since I already have 1-2 but only for Windows? Who cares... Not impressed at all by Epic with all these Windows-only giveaways.

I don't know about before but these recent and newest giveaways are for Windows only, like Civ 6, Borderlands 2 and TPS. Clearly they don't care about Mac anymore.

I suspect the EGS does not have the option to share revenues with third-party porting companies, like Steam does. Hence, no Mac ports from Aspyr and Feral there.

Sounds strange. They surely have other Mac games? I think it's not a matter of technical impossibility but the low number of Mac players and poor profitability. Long live Steam!

All first party ports, which don't require any mechanism for revenue sharing.

Overcooked free on Epic, win only. (And not Ark, surprisingly)

A large number of games are free on GOG.

The reason: https://survivethear...wildcard-r1563/

As for those free games on GOG, only War Wind, Ascendant and maybe Delores are new additions.

Snake Pass free at GOG maybe Humble. Win only.


Speaking of ARK, som people reported on Reddit that they could actually install ARK on Mac, despite Epic saying it was Windows only! And one out of three reported that he was actually able to play it, the other two reported the game launching, but then nothing happened, ie. no window appearing. That is promising!

That also sparks the question - Are there any other games on Epic that are supposedly marked as Windows only, but actually have a Mac binary hidden?

I'll already post both Janichsan's and your reply as your brain keeps on making the same mistake.

Humble, but still free.

Nice. I've never played this one. I've played the first four games in the series, but never played this fifth game in the series. Unfortunately GOG's having some problems currently. I always get some kind of error. However, this give-away still lasts almost 70 hours, so I'll just try again later.

I haven't played any Hitman, but from what I understand I wouldn't expect much. Bad story, very linear levels compared to the other games.

I've also heard it's the worst game in the series, which is the reason I've never played. However, when it's free you can't go wrong. If it turns out to be a terrible game, then just stop playing. It's free, so no loss there.

I've just tried adding the game to my account and this time it did work.
