The New Order is Epic Games Store's weekly free game

Epic Games is known to give out a weekly free game to draw customers to its storefront. And during its special MEGA Sale event, it has given away incredible free games in an effort to capitalize as much as possible during this time. This week Wolfenstein: The New Order will be free for all to download until June 9 on the Epic Games Store. Borderlands 3 and BioShock: The Collection  already listed for free on the platform earlier this month. The storefront offers these games for a week at a time, so make sure to check these next two weeks for giveaways.

Set 14 years prior to the original game, Wolfenstein: The New Order is a great entry point for newcomers.

The 2009 game was id Software’s final game as an independent developer, before it was acquired by publisher Zenimax.
