The original story begins from here…[Published on May 22, 2020]
Last week, the gaming community went crazy when GTA 5 was made free on Epic Games Store. Fans were so excited to get their hands on Rockstar’s gem that Epic Games launcher went down for few hours. And recently, Civilization VI replaced GTA 5 to be the next big title to go free on Epic Games Store.
Civilization VI is free to download on Epic Games Store until May 28. However, things are going to get even better next week. That is because the next game to go free on Epic Games Store could be Borderlands: The Handsome Collection.
For those of you who are unaware, Borderlands: The Handsome collection consists of Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. Also, the bundle includes all the released downloadable content. So, the possibility of getting this collection for free is enough to make Borderlands fanatics excited.
This information about Epic Games Store’s future free games comes from a leaked slideshow, which appeared on Reddit. The leak mentions four big titles, that is GTA 5, Civilization VI, Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, and Ark: Survival Evolved.

If the leak is real, then Borderlands: The Handsome Collection will go free on Epic Games Store next week on May 28. Whereas, Ark: Survival Evolved will be free to download for a week starting June 4.
Also, this leak surfaced on the internet a few days before Epic Games Store made Civilization 6 free yesterday. So, it’s safe to say that the leak should not be taken as simply a rumor.
