Epic Games Store Free Games of the Week (December 8, 2022)

Fight aliens and shoot beasts in the Epic Games Store free games of the week for December 8, 2022.

We cover the free games on the Epic Games Store every week, but this week is a little different. Epic must have realized that the winter break is coming up, so they are showering us with a few early gifts. One game is a fun, meme-worthy ride from a familiar franchise, and the other is a bullet hell dungeon crawler that will give you another challenge to complete on your days off from work or school. These games will be free on the Epic Games Store this week from December 8-15, 2022.

Check out our Epic Games Store free games list for a full roundup of all the weekly freebies.

Epic Games Store Free Games this Week for December 8, 2022

Epic Games Store is now offering Saints Row IV Re-Elected and Wildcat Gun Machine. The Epic Game Store’s free games of the week will be available until December 15, 2022. They will be taken off the Epic Games Store at 11 a.m. EST.

Saints Row IV Re-Elected

Saints Row IV Re-Elected, developed by Volition and published by Deep Silver, is a 2013 action-adventure game and followup to the previous Saints Row: The Third. The game continues the story of your player-generated character, and this time–you’re the president of the United States. Like the other games in the series, being a gang figurehead and leader of the developed world ain’t easy–you’ll get into insane scenarios and missions, taking on the alien overlords we met in previous entries. Unlike the spinoff, which saw the continuation of the story of Johnny Gat, Re-Elected is a true sequel in the Saints Row franchise, and is now free on the Epic Games Store.

Wildcat Gun Machine

Wildcat Gun Machine, developed by Chunkybox Games and published by Daedalic Entertainment is an isometric bullet-hell dungeon crawler where you must face monstrous fleshy beasts and hordes. With over 40 different gun types with their own specific behaviors and attributes, as well as abilities to make you more mobile on the battlefield, this game is made for people who enjoy bullet-hell experiences.
