As reported, a big Christmas sale is now running in the Epic Games Store, during which the company is also giving away one game for free every day. And last night such a game very unexpectedly became… Death Stranding from the famous game designer Hideo Kojima.

At one time, the game was very popular on PlayStation 4, where it was released 3 years ago at the end of 2019. A year later, Death Stranding was ported to PC, where it also received favorable reviews from both critics and regular players. As of November 2022, according to official developer statement, the studio Kojima Productions, the combined circulation of the game on PS4, PS5 and PC reached the mark of 10 million copies.

There is still a lot of interest in the game, and it turns out that there are still quite a few players who would like to get to know it, but still have not entered the 10 million paragraph above – so when it became known yesterday that Death Stranding can be picked up in the Epic Games Store absolutely free of charge, the store very quickly crashed under a huge load of willing customers.

As of now, the store is finally up and running and you can still get the game – the distribution will last until 18:00 Kyiv time.
