Get The Escapists for Free

The Escapists has escaped its MSRP, at least temporarily, as the prison break game is now available for free on the Epic Games Store as the store's latest giveaway. You don't to dig a tunnel behind a pinup poster or walk the green mile to get in on the deal. Just claim in by next Thursday and it's yours to keep. After that Europa Universalis IV will be the next freebie. Here's more on The Escapists:
The Escapists is a unique prison sandbox experience with lots of items to craft and combine in your daring quest for freedom. Life in prison will keep you on your toes with the strict rules that you’ll have to break. The guards are out to stop any escape attempts, so you’ll have to avoid suspicious behaviour by attending roll calls, working a prison job and hiding your stolen craftables.

Look the epic games store client is shitty and poorly designed but it is not spyware. That's been debunked many many times

Also I saw the initial reddit posts years ago and the guy who posted it even said more or less he has no idea what he is talking about..

It's ultimately your choice, but imho I'm pretty sure it is not malware. Just programmed poorly.

The Escapists 2 was awesome... skipped the original though due to lack of co-op.

Their new game though, The Survivalists, was so boring! What a disappointment.

Yet you undoubtedly still use Windows and likely services offered by Google.

I use both out of necessity, and I limit my Google exposure as much as possible. I don't even use the search engine.

People seem rather crazy with it. Grab it !


The Metacritic was in the lower 70s, but I would trust Steam reviews over Meta. Thanks, I always forget to check Steam for EGS things simply because they used to be largely exclusive with their freebies.

Oh man, I just made room on my hard drive for another free epic game and then I realized I already had it. They’ve given away this freebie before.

How is it? I mean for a freebie, obviously I could just search for reviews for what it is like retail. If anyone here has even mild praise for it I will probably give it a go at $0. Worst case scenario I waste 15 minutes figuring out that I don't care for the title.

Apple's victory has deprived the EGS of the economic means to provide us with a *new* quality freebie.

You don't need to install the client to get the freebies though. IIRC you can get them right through the website.

Oh, yeah. It's that time of the week again. Own this on Gog and Steam already somehow, but free is free.

You…you INSTALL the freebies? I just…claim them. I only have Satisfactory and Hades installed from EGS.
