The Epic Games Store Holiday Sale 2022 is one gaming deals event you don't want to miss. From now through Jan. 5, the Epic Games Store is giving away free games. Plus, save up to 75% sitewide on select titles and add-ons. 

Each day, the Epic Games Store will unlock a free to download mystery game. Today's game is the tactical sci-fi RPG, Encased (valued at $30). Download this game for free before Dec. 24 at 11:00 a.m. ET. 

To claim free games during the Epic Games Store Holiday Sale, select the game labeled, "Free Now", select the yellow "Get" button and sign into your Epic Games account. You can create an account if you don't have one or sign in with and link to your Steam, Nintendo, PlayStation or Xbox Live account.

And what's more, Epic Coupons makes a return this season. Spend $14.99 or at the Epic Games Store and get 25% off full games. This rule seemingly applies when you unlock an eligible free mystery game as well. Earlier this week, my freeLego Builder's Journey was followed by an email informing me about my coupon.

So if you want to liven up your collection of PC games, don't let the Epic Games Store Holiday Sale pass you by. As a reminder, the sale ends Jan. 5.
