Epic Games Store free games: Who does not want to play the best games possible especially if they are made available for free. Yes, gratis! Epic Games has just done that. The games going for free for a limited period of time are Sonic Mania and Horizon Chase Turbo. Announcing the deal, Epic Games tweeted, "We’re feeling retro this week". Both are based on speed and they are available this week only. While every company wants to make money, including gaming companies, to ensure their continued longevity and prosperity, Epic Games does that and also provides games free. Offers like these act as a great attraction for gamers. In short, lure them and grab them!

And Horizon Chase Turbo? This is how Epic Games describes it, "Horizon Chase Turbo is a racing game inspired by the great hits of the 80's and 90's. It recreates the classic arcade gameplay with unbound speed limits of fun. Full throttle on and enjoy!" A Multiplayer Split Screen mode is offered and that 'rescues the nostalgia of playing with your best friends sitting on a couch all night long'.

The action includes piloting a car through torrential rain, snow, volcanic ash and severe sandstorms.
