Epic Games Store Free Games for December 1 Revealed

The Epic Games Store reveals the free games that it is giving away on December 1 while also making a new game free for users to claim.

The Epic Games Store has confirmed the first free games that it will give away on in December, while also making Star Wars: Squadrons available for users to claim for free. The Epic Games Store updates its offerings every Thursday at 10am CT, and Thanksgiving Day is no exception to the rule. As of 10am CT, the Epic Games Store has cycled out its previous free games, made a new game free, and revealed what fans can expect from the free games come next Thursday, December 1.


Star Wars: Squadrons is the lone Epic Games Store free game from November 24 to December. A space combat game from developer EA’s Motive Studios, Star Wars: Squadrons launched in 2020 as a somewhat smaller-scale experience compared to most AAA Star Wars titles. It earned mostly positive reviews and was generally well-received by the community, and so it is certainly one of the more significant Epic Games Store free games that’s been given away on the service this year.

Anyone with the Epic Games Store launcher downloaded can go claim Star Wars: Squadrons completely free of charge right now. They have until December 1 to claim the game for their digital library, at which point it will be replaced by Fort Triumph and RPG in a Box, both of which will be available from December 1 to December 8.

  • Star Wars: Squadrons (November 24 – December 1)
  • Fort Triumph (December 1 – December 8)
  • RPG in a Box (December 1 – December 8)

Fort Triumph is a strategy game inspired by XCOM, but in a medieval fantasy setting. Like XCOM before it, Fort Triumph uses permadeath to up the stakes significantly, so players have to be careful about every move they make if they want to keep their characters alive. Fort Triumph earned mixed reviews from critics when it first released, but strategy game fans looking for a new game to play may still want to check it out while it’s free through the Epic Games Store.

Fort Triumph will be joined by RPG in a Box in the Epic Games Store free games lineup from December 1 to December 8. RPG in a Box is a game where players create their own RPG adventures. It has been well-received by fans, so anyone interested in that kind of creation gameplay can look forward to claiming it for free starting next week.
