Aside from being a pretty nice premium game being given away for free, the Civilization 6 Epic Games Store release may also confirm that a recent questionable leak is turning out to be true. Or maybe you end up buying something that you didn't even want to buy in the first place.

While you shouldn't treat anything as gospel until the curtain is officially pulled, below you'll find the Epic Games free mystery games leak which suggests that Borderlands The Handsome Collection will be the May 28th freebie. Sometimes, the games are indie darlings like Abzu; sometimes, they're big-budget hits like Assassin's Creed Syndicate.

A free Epic Games account is required to claim the game, which is playable on Windows via the Epic Games Launcher - simply log into your account and click GET on the store page to add it to your library! The version of Civilization VI free today is just the base game.

The screen is coated with anti-reflection and adaptive picture technology which helps minimise unwanted glare. The TV also includes a built-in HDBaseT receiver so all you need to set it up is an AC outlet and a mount.


Bear in mind that to access the games, you'll need to activate two-factor authentication (2FA) on your account, if you haven't done so already. This time however, no such issues with the store have been reported, and you can download Civilization VI for free from the website or the Epic Games Store desktop app.

Civilization VI is now on the docket, which somehow still retails for $59.99 on marketplaces like Steam. Once you build up your Epic Games Store library, you may feel more inclined to buy future games at Epic rather than at Steam or Origin. You begin with a small tribe and eventually build entire cities, working toward one of several victories.

The turn-based strategy game originally launched in 2016 and has been ported to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and iOS devices. You can conquer the world through military might, or surpass your rivals with diplomacy and technology. Epic Games' free titles are offered as a lifetime free game, so users who do not own a gaming PC at the moment can still choose to get the game for free now, and download or play at a later time.
