Saints Row Is a Bittersweet Freebie for a Day on The Epic Games Store

Epic Games has just revealed the latest game made available for free for a day on the Epic Games Store, and it’s Saints Row

The game can be downloaded from the EGS for the very affordable cost of zero dollars for 24 hours. Once you get it, it’s yours to keep. 

After the time expires, it’ll return to its usual $29.99 price. 

Do keep in mind that you dpn’t get the paid DLC A Song of Ice & Dust, Doc Ketchum’s Murder Circus, The Heist & The Hazardous, and more, albeit most are now 50% off.

This is certainly bittersweet, considering that, while the game is being offered for free, its developer Volition has been shut down as part of Embracer’s mass layoffs, which have become one of the most controversial topics of 2023. 

Incidentally, we recently heard that the Saints Row brand will continue to be exploited under Plaion’s umbrella, 

At least, I suppose many more will now get to experience Volition’s last labor of love. 

The Epic Games Store is providing a whole 17 free games during the Holiday period, to celebrate it Holiday sale. 

Previously, we saw Destiny 2 Legacy CollectionDNF Duel, Fallout 3 Game of the Year Edition, Ghostwire Tokyo, Cat Quest, Snakebird Complete,  and more. 

Saints Row was launched on August 23, 2022, for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Stadia as a soft reboot of the series with a brand new cast. 

The good folks at Volition kept updating the game and working on supporting it pretty much until the studio was closed in August,

Considering the pattern of previous games, it’s likely that the next two days may be fairly big, to celebrate the New Year and New Year’s Eve,
