Even though Epic's announcement for this week's freebies was "only" Stick It To The Man, the actual offer turned into a threebie, as they added Football Manager 2020 and Watch Dogs 2.

We're used to Epic Games doubling up on their offer of one game per week whenever the game in question is meant for more mature audiences, but this time it wasn't the case, so it's certainly a nice surprise. 

In case you're unfamiliar with any of the titles, we'll briefly walk you through them. When it comes to football management simulations, actual football, not American one, the Football Manager franchise reigns supreme. 

Older football management enthusiasts remember it as Championship Manager, and while the name has slightly changed - the dev's attention to detail hasn't. We're talking about the most in-depth simulation game ever, and yours truly isn't saying this lightly. Feel free to try it out for yourself - just stock up on a week's worth of snacks and drinks. 

Epic's second freebie is Watch Dogs 2, Ubisoft's open-world action-adventure from 2016 which takes players from Watch Dogs 1's setting of Chicago to far less windy San Francisco. 

Players assume the role of an up-and-coming hacker Marcus Holloway, whose wrongful conviction drives him to become a member of a hacking group DedSec, in an attempt to show just how heinous the city's newly installed city-operating system ctOS really is.

Last but not least is Stick It To The Man, a wonderfully quirky platformer from 2013, whose style and wits are sure to win you over. Plus it's free, so yeah. 

Epic Games also unveiled the next week's freebie, which is RollerCoaster Tycoon 3: Complete Edition, where you'll get to test yourself in the roller coaster business. Hint - it's not easy. 

You can find all three on the Epic Games Store website .
