After the excitement about Death Stranding, which Epic is currently offering completely free of charge and which briefly caused problems in the store as well as confusion and frustration among the players, the rush for the next game shouldn’t be quite as great. If the leakers’ predictions are correct, a rather smaller title will follow Hideo Kojima’s triple-A production on Boxing Day. We’ll tell you whether it’s still worth taking a closer look at the new free game.
Epic Games Store: What’s the name of the next free game?
The holiday promotion in the Epic Games Store gives all players with a linked account a free game every day up to and including Thursday, January 05, 2023, which can be downloaded from 5:00 p.m. for 24 hours at no additional cost and then permanently can gamble.
In the run-up, Epic traditionally teases the mysterious next title with digital gift packaging. On this, in stylized form, you can find several hints as to which game it is. In the case of the Boxing Day title, we see the silhouette of an oversized fist with bunny ears. It can actually only be about FIST: Forged in Shadow Torch.

Since players usually have an overflowing back catalog of unplayed titles and are not likely to be blessed with infinite time or storage space, the question arises as to whether downloading FIST: Forged in Shadow Torch is worth it at all.
