What games are given away on the Epic Games Store from May 12 to May 19, 2022
From May 12 to May 19, a new distribution of three games started. Two games – Redout: Enhanced Edition and Jotun: Valhalla Edition – are also available to Gamers. And the main game in this collection, the first-person shooter Prey, is not. This is because Bethesda has banned the sale, transfer, and gift of their games in Russia. We will update this section with the release of new giveaways in the store.
