    Don't forget, you need to actually install the "free" game you get via EGS to ensure the developer gets paid for it, and just as important, to make sure Epic get charged for it.
    If you claim but don't install, Epic just get their free advertising, and thats bad for all of us

    Ahh, didn't know that, I quite often grab a game I like the look/sound of but then wait to install it until I want to actually play something new..

    I'd like to know this too.... I'm not going to install everything and not play it/uninstall it, but I will grab stuff that interests me for 'later'.

    UPlay offered me an in-game mask/skin... for a game I don't own. Really?

    I am not sure - the info above came from Tim Sweeney & various media outlets who picked it up - they dont mention if you have to install during the giveaway period or not sadly.

    Re: Epic Games and Ubisoft line up days of festive giveaways

    Got to be honest I grab all this stuff and never play it. I recently extended my game pass ultimate to 3 years and don't use that enough... Was pleased to get starlink though. I have the game on xbox and switch already!

    Ah ok, hopefully it's at any time. I've played a couple but not most of the ones i've claimed.

    Hopefully there is some solid games. Can't complain either way since they're free after all
