    Annoyingly I was very ill for the last 2 weeks (not Corona) so I missed JC4 and probably a few others :-(

    Two-Factor Authentication Required When Claiming Free Games April 28 - May 21
    4.28.2020
    Beginning today and ending on May 21, we will periodically require two-factor authentication prior to claiming free games on the Epic Games Store. We are making this change in an effort to encourage our players to take steps to strengthen their Epic account security.

    If you do not have two-factor authentication enabled on your account, you will see the following message when attempting to claim a free game:

    “Two Factor Authentication Required

    Claiming this free game requires you to have Two-Factor Authentication setup on your account. Two-Factor Authentication provides an additional level of security to your Epic Games account and will help prevent unauthorized access.”

    In order to enable two-factor authentication, please head over to your Epic Games Account settings. Two-factor authentication can be used to help protect your account from unauthorized access by requiring you to enter a security code when you sign in. You can read a full how-to guide on enabling two-factor authentication here.

    We understand that this is a minor inconvenience for some, but we want to provide the best possible solutions to protect your Epic account.
    just saw that on top of epic store.



    and this weeks games are Free until May 7th at 4pm:
    Amnesia Dark Descent https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-U...k-descent/home

    Crashlands https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-U...rashlands/home

    They're not the first to do this: https://thepaypers.com/digital-ident...users--1242128

    However, I expect there will be some "my data, my choice" type backlash over how they're effectively forcing us to do what they want, or something... followed by complaints from subsequently-hacked non-2FA account owners!!

    re: Free Games

    GTA V is the new freebie on the Epic Store. Great game if you don't already have it on last gen / current gen consoles or the PC version on Steam already.

    Good luck getting logged on though presently as it is being rammed!

    re: Free Games

    Pretty damn generous to be fair. I remember EA collapsing when they released CnC Red Alert 2 for free. They had to keep it up for a longer period of time
    Epics first encounter of a very popular game!

    I guess because you need the rockstar launcher steam and epic gamers can play in harmony. If rockstars servers can now cope as well
