Overcooked is new free epic games store game, not ark survival evolved

As couch co-op classic overcooked is unveiled. Team17’s overcooked is free for a week on epic games store, which is a bit of a shock as everyone thought it was going to be ark: survival evolved. They had good reason to as well, since every free game so far, starting with grand theft auto 5, has leaked out ahead of time. A list suggesting ark: survival evolved would be free from today got everything else right, so it may be that there was some last minute rights problem and overcooked was used to fill in a gap in the schedule.

That theory makes more sense when you consider overcooked was already free on epic games store last july, so it seems a bit odd to bring it back now – especially as the sequel has been out for a while. There’s already another mystery game scheduled for this time next week, so it may be that ark: survival evolved has simply been delayed by a week.

Although everyone has welcomed the free games, epic games has also been showing a renewed interest in signing up exclusives lately, to stop them from appearing on steam. Their recent deal for a total war saga: troy managed to be both a 12-month exclusive and a free offer, as long as you download it in the first 24 hours.
