    Apparently Total War:Troy had 7.5million downloads which is rather more than sales of recent TW titles.
    On the face of it they missed out on a bunch of revenue, on the other they seem to be banking on earning a bunch of sales of older titles & DLC from new converts to TW series & I hope that will work out.

    Could be hilarious if Epic/whoever promised Creative Assembly a nominal $ payment per-download budgeting for a much smaller number of downloads -> someone might get fired :runaway:

    Apparently they (Epic and I suppose deal aggregators like Humble and Twitch and probably also subscription services like Game Pass) pay a flat fee for some if not all of these bundled/giveaway/subscription titles.

    But if anyone can afford per claim downloaded, it would be Epic.

    It looks like a Portal clone. Not bad though from what I can see.

    Into the Breach free at Epic (again, I think) for the next week.

    Borderlands 2: Commander Lillith... DLC is also free at Epic.

    Far Cry 3 theoretically free via Ubi's Chinese site and using a mobile browser (or setting your browser to mobile mode). It was also free previously (outside of China).

    Thanks! I wasn't seeing the Commander Lilith offer within the game launcher, but I scored it from the Epic site after logging in, and now its being downloaded.

    I guess outside of the US you need a nation specific link?

    Edit: P.S.

    Really recommend picking up the free Into the Breach at Epic.

    This is one of those easy to learn hard to master games that you might just find yourself still playing at 3am wondering where the day went. Love it!

    The Witcher 3 Next-Gen will be free

    CD Projekt RED has just announced its plans to release a next-gen version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. According to the team, this next-gen version will be available on the PC, will be free to all owners of the base game, and will support Ray Tracing. The Witcher 3 Next-Gen will feature a range of visual and technical improvements - including ray tracing and faster loading times. These improvements will be present across the base game, both expansions, and all extra content. In short, PC gamers will receive this enhanced version of The Witcher 3 via a future update. CD Projekt RED has not revealed when this next-gen version of The Witcher 3 will come out.

    Get Death Rally (Classic) For Free
    Remedy Entertainment announces that they are celebrating their 25th anniversary by making their debut game permanently free. You can now pick up Death Rally (Classic) for Windows and macOS on Steam for nothing. Here's a refresher on this top-down battle racing game first released in 1996:
    Prepare to be blown away, literally. Race for the finish line, leaving a trail of burnt rubber and spent brass behind you… along with the flaming wreckage of anyone reckless enough to get in your way.
    Pick up more ammo and turbo from the side of the track, and floor the pedal while performing some shady deals for The Dealer. No trick is too dirty when you're preparing for The Final Confrontation. Only the hardest armor, the most powerful engine and the biggest guns will see you through the ultimate battle against The Adversary.

    And when you feel you can't take it anymore, you can check out the underground market. Spiked bumpers, landmines, rocket fuel or sabotage can provide a way to create some nasty accidents for the competition.
