The Escapists Free on Epic Games Store; 12 Freebies Coming Next Week

Here's a bunch of news about goings on at the Epic Games Store. First off, they are holding their Game Awards Sale with discounts on nominees. Also, The Escapists is now available there for free. This jail break game is their latest weekly giveaway, and it's yours to keep if you pick up your copy before December 19th. Word is: "You’ve landed yourself in prison again, and your only chance is to engineer an escape by any means necessary. How you do it is up to you! Why not cause a prison riot? Or dig a tunnel right under the walls of the prison? Or even steal a guard uniform to blend in with your captors?..." Normally at this point they would reveal the game that will go free after The Escapists giveaway ends, but they go that one better. Or 12 better, actually, as they released an Epic Games Store The Game Awards 2019 Trailer at the show last night. In addition to showing off games coming to the store in 2020, they also announce that their holiday sale will kick off on December 19th, and along with discounts on a bunch of games, they will giving away 12 games between December 19th and January 1st. They are not revealing the titles of the giveaways just yet.
