The Epic Game store has grown quite rapidly ever since Fortnite and their courtesy of providing free games weekly to keep forever, just seals the deal altogether. They started the year with a huge title giveaway under their free giveaways with Star Wars Battlefront II. It was a great success and it made the entire player base of the game grow double in no time. Its impact was so big that I crashed the EA servers for the game so that EA had to implement new servers to accommodate the new players.
This time, they maintained the theme of Space and Galaxies with their new giveaway of Galactic Civilizations III.
