Epic Games gives free 'Civilization VI' and continues to revolutionize the video game market

Last week Epic Games threw the house out the window giving away no more and no less than the premium edition of ‘GTA V’ . Today he repeats the play with a title that although it does not have the scope of the Rockstar game, it is very popular: ‘ Civilization VI ‘. As it happened with ‘GTA V’, it is already possible to download it and, once claimed, it will be kept in our account forever.

To do this, just go to this link and log in with the Epic Games account. We claim the game and voila, it can be downloaded from the launcher . It should be noted that in order to access it, it will be necessary to have two-step authentication activated , something that you will have already done if you claimed ‘GTA V’ and that you can learn to do by following this tutorial.

Free and forever

‘Civilization VI’ is a game that is already four years old, but is still one of the great exponents of turn-based strategy . It was released on October 21, 2016 for PC, OS X and Linux and, later, in 2018, for Nintendo Switch. The edition that Epic Games gives us today is the basic one, that is, the base game without the expansions ‘Rise and Fall’ and ‘Gathering Storm’, but it is more than enough to play for hours and hours.

One option to get the full game will be to purchase the upgrade to the Platinum Edition , which includes six stage and civilization DLC packs, in addition to the two expansions mentioned above. Its price is 39.99 euros , also in Epic Games, although it is not yet available. Meanwhile, the expansion ‘Rise and Fall’ can be obtained for 8.99 euros and the crossing of new borders for 39.99 euros .
