Is there an Epic Games Store free games not working fix? Not being able to get hold of free games is very annoying, especially when those free games have a time limit before you they’re gone. When you can’t find free games on the Epic Games Store it is particularly irritating.
Read on, thankfully, for an Epic Games Store free games not working fix that should, hopefully, make it so you can find, access, and download those great freebies on the latest PC gaming store.
Why are Epic Games Store free games not working?
The Epic Games Store is likely not showing you its free games right away because of server stress. Hence the seemingly constant loading of the app. It’s happened before and it will happen again where everybody at once tries to access the Epic Games Store to get hold of its latest free games offerings. This sudden uptick of users and traffic can slow the Epic Games Store down.
You might be unable to claim your free games on the Epic Games Store, too, because of a bug. If this is the case, Epic Games should update its store sharply. We’ve never had to wait too long before we can claim our free games, for example.
How to fix Epic Games Store free games not working
Exit the Epic Games Store and try again. You can keep trying this until it works if you like. Alternatively, you can leave it a couple of hours and try again later. Leaving it until later could allow the server stress to sort itself out with less immediacy from everyone trying to claim their free games.
To fix the Epic Games Store free games not working, try the following fixes:
- Close the app down, restart it, and try again.
- Leave it a couple of hours and try again later.
- Leave it a day (if you can) and try again tomorrow.
Hopefully, you’re able to claim your free game or games on the Epic Games Store sooner rather than later.
