After a free game is added to your Epic Games Store library, you should be able to download it whenever you want. Contact Epic Games Support if you’re still having problems after waiting 24 hours to try to download the game again. If you’re really desperate, you can try a VPN, but these often don’t work well with Games Stores such as this one and can cause problems. Do so at your own risk.
If the game is showing up as “Unavailable,” on the Epic Games Store page after you add it to your library, however, you should still be able to play it from the launcher. As long as you add the free game to your library, you should be able to play it.
