Civilization VI is currently free to keep over at the Epic Games Store. Last week's free game was Grand Theft Auto V and, according to a leak on Reddit, Borderlands: The Handsome Collection could be next.

Epic's huge giveaway of popular games may not have started with Grand Theft Auto V but the game's giveaway did cause a myriad of people to have issues while accessing the Epic Games Launcher. 

The giveaway continues this week with the 0.00 price tag now tacked onto Sid Meier’s Civilization VI . You can head on over to the title's Epic Games Store page now to claim your copy of Civilization VI. The title will be free on the platform until May 28 at 3:00 p.m. GMT.

Once you add Civilization VI to your Epic Games Store Library it will wait for you there until the end of time. 

The caveat - the free edition of the game does not come with any DLC but you are free to upgrade to the Platinum Edition which will set you back $39.99 USD (£32.71 GBP). You can knock off a couple of digits from that price tag if you still have the coupon from the GTA 5 giveaway.

The Platinum Edition includes every paid update except the new Frontier Pass.

With the two massive games already free on the platform, it's not hard to believe the leaked list of games that will supposedly be up for grabs in the coming days.

A leak on Reddit was spot on when it came to Grand Theft Auto V and Civilization VI giveaways so if the list goes on as the post suggests, we're going to be adding two more interesting titles to our library: 

  • Borderlands: The Handsome Collection on May 28.
  • Ark: Survival Evolved on June 04.
