EPIC Games Store customers are counting down to the release of the next free game download, but will it be ARK Survival Evolved or Samurai Shodown: NeoGeo Collection?
The next Epic Games Store free download is about to be released online.
The Epic Games Store free games giveaway continues at 4pm BST on June 11.
This means customers only have a few hours left to download Overcooked free of charge.
Based on recent leaks, Overcooked will be replaced by Samurai Shodown: NeoGeo Collection as the next Epic Games Store free download.
What’s less clear is whether it will also be joined by Ark Survival Evolved.
If you cast your mind back to last week, Ark Survival Evolved was supposed to replace Borderlands The Handsome Collection as the free game download.
According to industry insider Wario64, the Ark Survival Evolved giveaway was delayed alongside the game’s in-game celebratory event.
“People are asking what happened to Ark as the free EGS title today. According to the devs, an ARK in-game celebration event is postponed to June 11th due to the protests. The free giveaway is likely tied to the event.”
It could be that Ark Survival Evolved joins the line-up this week, and the Samurai Shodown: NeoGeo Collection is pushed back to next week.
Alternatively, it’s possible that fans will be treated to a double game giveaway. We’ll find out more at 4pm BST on June 11.
Ark: Survival Evolved is a first-person adventure survival game with a pre-historic twist.
“Stranded on the shores of a mysterious island, you must learn to survive,” reads the official description.
“Use your cunning to kill or tame the primeval creatures roaming the land, and encounter other players to survive, dominate… and escape!”
The game only has a 70% score on Metacritic, but it’s managed to build quite the following on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
Samurai Shodown: NeoGeo Collection, meanwhile, is a brand new SNK bundle featuring the first five games in the fighting series.
It also contains unreleased versions of Samurai Shodown V Special and Samurai Shodown V Perfect.
The upgraded versions of Samurai Shodown V contain new gameplay tweaks, as well as altered story elements and endings.
Samurai Shodown: NeoGeo Collection launches alongside the 2019 Samurai Shodown prequel on the Epic Games Store.
