NBA 2K21

NBA 2K21 is now free to add to your Epic Games Store library on PC, Epic Games announced today. The offer is valid until May 27th, 2021, at 11:00 AM Eastern.

In Wccftech's review, Nathan rated the game 6.5/10 for its current-generation version (which is also the one available on PC).

It’s hard to escape the feeling that the current-gen version of NBA 2K21 is merely a rushed appetizer before the next-gen main course. Yes, NBA 2K21 can still be a great time, but stagnant presentation, copy-and-pasted modes and features, and new mechanics that clearly weren’t fully worked out combine to make the game feel like a half-hearted buzzer beater throwaway.

The NBA 2K21 giveaway coincides with a new MEGA Sale event, live between today and June 17th. Following NBA 2K21, a new free game will be given away each week on Thursday.

Of course, the MEGA Sale is mainly about tons of discounts on the other games listed in the store. Don't forget that you can add Epic's coupons on top of the discounts, though.

Players will get a $10 Epic Coupon eligible on any full game purchase $14.99 and up. During the Epic MEGA Sale, each time a coupon is used, players will get another coupon!

The $10 Epic Coupon is eligible for use on new games like Unexplored 2 (now in Early Access), and Grindstone!

For players who’ve already pre-purchased any eligible game that launches during the Epic MEGA Sale (May 20 - June 17, 2021), they’ll benefit from a partial refund to account for our $10 Epic Coupons (or local equivalent). Sit back, relax, and enjoy some games knowing we’ve got your back. They’ll receive an email notification of your refund when the pre-purchased game launches on the Epic Games Store. Refunds will be made back from the original payment method used when pre-purchasing.
