guys, you did it! Another strenuous week has come to an end – and as a reward there are not only tons of cool trailers and exciting world premieres from the Summer Games Fest, but also a whole lot of free games on Steam and Epic.
As always, some titles are yours to keep forever, while others have limited access. So take the chance and take a look at our list!
Highlight of the week: Maneaters
Maneater – Here we present you the current free game
Genre: Open-World-Action | developer: Tripwire | Release: 22. May 2020 | Available free of charge until: 16. June
Oh, oh, here she comes – watch out, boy, she’ll chew you up. Well, who else knows it? In Maneater you play the most frightening sea creature since Baby Shark. As a giant bull shark, you roam the open world, grabbing people, mauling them, and eating all sorts of fish and aquatic creatures. After all, you are the undisputed top of the food chain here.

Of course, the game thrives on its black humor and absurd amounts of blood, but behind Maneater hides a chaotic and surprising cool action game with role-playing elements. You can level up your shark and try different types of builds that all play differently.
You can find out in our test whether this trash pearl could really be worth your time:

Dead by Daylight
Dead by Daylight: New trailer reveals the creepy Sadako
Genre: Multiplayer-Action | developer: Behavior | Release: 22. May 2020 | Available free of charge until: 16. June
Dead by Daylight is a few years old, but remains extremely popular among multiplayer fans. In the evening hours, when it’s particularly good to get scared, are currently always around 50,000 players on-line. Anyone who hasn’t tried this long-running hit yet will have another chance to do so this weekend.
Before the approximately 15-minute games, you can choose which role you want to slip into: either you hunt four survivors as an ice-cold killer or fight for survival as them.

After years of continuous updates, an enormous number of different characters are now available. Among them are numerous old acquaintances from horror films – such as Michael Myers (Halloween), Ghostface (Scream), Freddy Krüger (Nightmare on Elm Street) or Pinhead (Hellraiser). But friends of horror games will also get enough with Pyramid Head (Silent Hill) or Nemesis (Resident Evil).
Despite the quite creepy setting, Dead by Daylight is not a classic horror game – you can read in the following column what exactly awaits you and why it is so fascinating:
