The latest free Epic Games store game is Overcooked. It is a crucible that will either burn your relationships with your friends into cinders or temper them into unbreakable bonds. Overcooked is also a co-op cooking game, but you don't need to know the first thing about searing off tender fillets to make your way through all the levels in the campaign. What you do need is some well-trained communication skills and the ability to keep multiple plates spinning without the whole kitchen crashing down around your ears.

You can play Overcooked solo if you like, but this latest free Epic Games store game is very much intended to be enjoyed with friends. It's a lot more fun when you have somebody to yell at about having a half-dozen unfinished salads sitting around and no entrees and that person isn't just yourself. Plus, you'll want to put a team together now so you're ready for Overcooked 2.

To claim Overcooked as your latest free Epic Games store game, all you need to do is head to the game's store page while you're logged in. You'll see the price is crossed out and replaced with "FREE". Click the button, complete the transaction for a grand total of 0 moneys, and Overcooked will be permanently unlocked for your account. Well, as permanently as anything can be in this modern era of digital licenses.

Overcooked will be available for free on the Epic Games store through July 11th, when it will be replaced by the next game. Remember, you don't need to download any of the free games to claim them, just go through the free "purchase" process. They'll be ready for you to download and play whenever.
