Another Thursday, another free game on the Epic Game Store.
But this time around it is one of the biggest games since Star Wars Battlefront II. Epic Games kept the next game secret with a "mystery game" picture instead of an actual game, and now it has been revealed that this week's mystery game was NBA 2k21.
The latest edition of a well-known basketball franchise will be free for another seven days, so if you are a fan of the franchise, don't miss your chance to grab the game for free!
