The second free game is Football Manager 2020, the soccer/football (depending on your region) management simulation game, and the Epic Game Store version does offer cross-network play with the Steam version. The popular simulation game can make that happen, giving a tiny bit of solace to anxious fans. Amidst all this madness we still have a comforting constant in Epic Games and their weekly giveaways.
Miles Jacobson, studio director of Sports Interactive said: "We're thrilled to be bringing Football Manager to the Epic Games Store and to introduce a new audience to the FM experience". If you're already years ahead into your career, you can still easily access your save in the EGS version of the game by simply clicking "Load Game" and picking up where you left off. It is developed by Ubisoft. Being an A-list game like Football Manager, Watch Dogs 2 is quite popular among players and fans.
For those who are unfamiliar with the franchise, Football Manager puts you on the managerial and coaching side of the football world. After an accident, you wake up with a giant pink spaghetti arm sticking out of your brain that gives you the ability to change your world by folding, tearing and moving stickers. Epic also announced that from next week, RollerCoaster Tycoon 3: Complete Edition will be available for free.
The game is available to play from Thursday September 17 until 4pm BST (11am ET) on Thursday September 24.
