    Seems too good to be true, but honestly could see it happening if not for the inclusion of The Witcher 3, which would make no sense at all to be included, certainly don't expect it.

    For Witcher 3 to be free, it means GOG has been paid for it, but why would GOG give free access to one of their flagship titles to another store, unless of course they give it away free at the same time, then it could make sense as it'd be no different to just giving it away free themselves and getting paid.

    •  

      Because literally everyone owns the witcher 3 in their libraries?

      •  

        So? Doesn't change that it's better for GOG to offer it free on their own service than to be paid to offer it free on another.

        Epic Game Store spends a LOT of money to increase the userbase of their store, because it's an incredibly valuable thing to do, Epic would have had to offer an obscene amount for the benefit of the money to outweigh the benefit of increased userbase to GOG.

    •  

      While it's indeed too good to be true, it could be plausible. However, I expected the game list to be different cause some titles aren't even on EGS.

      Epic Games' CEO said that by offering games for free, players who played the game ended up purchasing the game on GOG/Steam

      (Pretty sure because nobody wants to use EGS)

    24-Dec Inside
    31-Dec Jurassic World Evolution

    PS. Won't be able to post these till they day they start per new Ozbargain rule.

      I can also confirm that these games are lame

        The others that I am aware of aren't that much better!

        •  

          Damn was hoping hitman 2 would be true

          •  

            @Ebaygiftcards: It may still be as I'm only aware of six confirmed games including the three above. The one to kick it off tonight isn't bad.

    •  

      Ah that's disappointing, I knew the list was fake but I was hoping that at least one of the game would be true. I think I've been given Tropico 5 for free about 4 times already.

    •  

      You are allowed to post the games here as a comment. It just isn't allowed to be posted as a deal as per guidelines.

        No, the list is wrong.
        Don't believe me? See Dealbot's post above.
        Still don't believe. Check reddit.

        Apart from that see this: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/590119

        And a few others posted after mine but before this. All taken down.

          If you want your voice to be heard then stop making posts for a month or two, Lysander.

            @King Steuart: Other people will just post the legit deals instead. That said, these ridiculous sorts of posts and spam are at an all time high and the mods dont seem to care too much about user reports. Take that 20 cent windows post for example. Any reasonable person would know its a scam, just as any reasonable person would know this post is clearly bogus.

    Belated April fools joke, it's just simply insane.

    •  

      The internet is one big April's fool if you're not careful!

  •  

    This is too good to be true

  •  

    Fake news. Hepefully it's new titles and not repeats or games they have given away in the past. As I got most of the 163 previous giveaways (except 2).

    •  

      There will be a few repeats I am afraid. But don't worry, still enough new games to keep you busy.

  •  

    Free games…hype!

  •  

    https://www.reddit.com/r/GamingLeaksAndRumours/comments/kehh...

    This seems more believable.

    Fingers crossed for OP's list though!

      Just paid for the Jurassic world evolution 3 days ago…

    Hey guys, I’m from the future and this list is wrong

  • +1 vote

    Surprise! This was bogus. I'm glad the guidelines changed. I was super excited as I've wanted many of these games but it is reasonable that they're not all going to be free after all.

    Banished to the forums…

    Yeah, so is leaving them up mods. Maybe learn.

      Genuinely surprised that they waited this long to move it to the forums. It was a discussion at best.

      Mods learn something? X for doubt again. It's the holiday season, they're more likely to ban reasonable users than learn from their own incompetence.
