These games will be free on the Epic Games Store this week from October 13-20, 2022.

Epic Games Store Free Games this Week for October 13, 2022

Epic Games Store is now offering Darkwood and ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove! The Epic Game Store free games of the week will be available until October 20, 2022. They will be taken off the Epic Games Store at 11 a.m. EST.


Darkwood, developed by Acid Wizard Studio, is a top-down survival horror game with a dark, disturbing aesthetic and creepy soundtrack. If you’re a big fan of indie horror and like playing games alone in the middle of the night, the 2017 release of Darkwood will get you in the Halloween mood.
