This season, the online game store “Epic Games” is holding a “Holiday Sale 2022,” which will give away a new game every day for free. At midnight each day, Epic releases a new free game; today, it’s the open-world hit Death Stranding from 2019.
Since the Holiday Sale started on December 15th, this game has sold the most copies. This title is available until December 26 at 11:59 AM PT, after which a new, equally free game will become available.
There was a brief period when the Death Stranding Director’s Cut was free on the Epic Games Store. On the other hand, it’s possible it was just a bug since the game was updated to the original Death Stranding build shortly after.

Like the Grand Theft Auto 5 giveaway, when numerous PC users worldwide tried to grab the free game, Epic Games Store servers experienced significant delays. Accordingly, you may download Death Stranding for free from the Epic Games Store until 9:30 p.m.
The free game is only available for a limited time, so take advantage of it. Every night at 9:30, a new free game is added to the list and stays up for a whole day.
After a short time of offering Death Stranding: Director’s Cut as a free game on Christmas Day, the Epic Games Store switched to the regular version. The overwhelming demand for today’s gift caused the servers for the Epic Games Store to go down for a short while, leaving many customers bewildered and upset.
The fact that Epic Games abruptly removed Death Stranding: Director’s Cut added fuel to the flames. Nothing is known about what occurred, but the regular Death Stranding game has been installed. Daily free game giveaways throughout the holidays are now an annual tradition at Epic Games.
This year’s festivities began on December 15 and lasted until December 29, with 15 free gaming days. Costume Quest 2, LEGO Builder’s Journey, and both Fallout and Fallout 2 are among the games that have been published thus far. Death Stranding is the latest installment in a tradition where the Epic Games Store releases a significant game on December 25.
At its first release on December 25 at 8:00 AM PT, Death Stranding: Director’s Cut was made accessible for free. According to reports, many people who visited the Epic Games Store before the servers went down could purchase the game, which is still in their collections today.
However, after around 90 minutes, Epic Games switched out Death Stranding: Director’s Cut for the regular release. There has been zero clarification.
The Death Stranding
Director’s Cut is a meaningfully improved game version, especially for PC. It features additional graphics options, including 4K resolution support, removing product placement like Monster energy drinks, new combat abilities and equipment, and a mission for the Ruined Factory, which players will want to experience for themselves.
Luckily, upgrading from the standard edition of Death Stranding to the Director’s Cut is relatively simple and affordable. It typically costs $10 but is currently discounted by 40% to $6. Getting a bit of extra cash is probably why it’s being offered as an Epic Games Store free game in the first place. Either way, a free Epic Games Store copy of Death Stranding is still better than none.
How to get the game?
If you haven’t already, download the Epic Games launcher for Windows and sign in to claim the game. The Epic Games launcher’s home page will include a seasonal reminder to download free games just in time for the holidays. Death Stranding will appear among the available free games as soon as you do.
You may also find Death Stranding for nothing by manually searching for it in the launcher’s Store tab’s search field. The game will be added to your library, where you can access and install it anytime.
