Second Extinction Epic Games Store

The annual Epic Games Store Holiday Sale is currently in full swing, and as usual, a new game is being offered for free each day throughout the holidays. Today’s game is Avalanche’s co-op dino shooter Second Extinction, which launched in early access this year. Epic’s free holiday games are yours to keep, but each one is only available for 24 hours, so don’t sleep on anything you might want! Haven’t been keeping up with Second Extinction? You can check out a quick trailer and an official description, below.

Second Extinction pits teams of up to three players against swarms of bloodthirsty dinos in fast-paced battles across Earth’s post-apocalyptic wastelands. Equip a range of uniquely powerful weapons and abilities and fight on your own or with friends against monstrous dinosaurs long thought extinct — now mutated and deadlier than ever! The War Effort is Second Extinction’s community-driven global metagame: by completing missions and activities, you’ll directly impact the threat level and challenges players around the world face.

Epic will continue to offer a free game every day until December 30, meaning there’s 9 more to come. So far they’ve offered Shenmue III, Neon Abyss, Remnant from the Ashes, Vanishing of Ethan Carter, and Loop Hero. You can keep up with the latest free game on offer via this page. We’ll keep you posted if any particularly exciting games are offered (expect at least one pretty major AAA game to be offered).

Of course, the Epic Games Store Holiday Sale also includes… sales! The storefront is currently offering deals on games like Battlefield 2042 (34% off), Far Cry 6 (35% off), Guardians of the Galaxy (35% off), Alan Wake Remastered (20% off), and more. Check out all the deals, right here.

The Epic Games Store Holiday Sale will continue on until January 6.
