This week’s free offering on the Epic Games Store is one of those rare titles that even after four years or so of being available is still able to keep a $60 price tag. The popular turn-based strategy game from Firaxis Games, Cid Meier’s Civilzation VI, is up for grabs on the store until next Thursday (May 28).

As with last week, Epic is offering up some fairly impressive titles as part of its Epic Mega Sale. Between now and June 11, players not only have a chance to pick up some games at a pretty deep discount, but also snag a AAA game for nothing every week.

Of course, as with most free offerings on the EGS, this does not include DLC or upgrades, but thanks to the current sale, players can grab the Platinum Edition Upgrade for half the normal cost. The upgrade includes six Civilization and Scenario DLC packs and the Rise and Fall and Gathering Storm expansions.

  1. Not a great hex game guy, it is why I never bought it, now its free I can give it go, cheers for the reminders 🙂

    • For me the thing I don’t like is how far you can technologically advance into these games. I really don’t like the idea of starting with sticks and stones and a few hours later I’m launching jet fighters at my enemies and conquering the moon.

      I liked Age of Empires 1 and 2 better – where the bracket for the time periods is a lot tighter. Also I’m more leaning towards fantasy games, so I’d perfer to play a fantasy 4x game instead.

        • I have tried playing AoW 1, 2, 3, Fallen Enchantress, Sorcerer King, but I can’t grasp many aspects of the 4x type of games. The only such type of fantasy grand strategy I can really play is Heroes of Might and Magic 3.
