The official description goes as follows: (Courtesy of Epic Game Store)

"Shoot and loot as you explore the mayhem-filled world of Pandora in Borderlands 2 and the lunar madness of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel in Borderlands: The Handsome Collection."

Borderlands: The Handsome Collection includes:

  • Two critically acclaimed Borderlands games in one package
  • All bonus add-on content, adding hundreds of hours of gameplay at an incredible value
  • Cooperative gameplay for up to four players

This week’s free game doesn’t come as a surprise. There have been several leaks that revealed the Handsome Collection as the next free game. In fact, a few weeks ago, the leaks revealed four free games. The free games were GTA 5, Civilization VI, Borderlands The Handsome Collection, and Ark Survival Evolved.

So far, the rumors about three of these games have been correct. So it’s all but confirmed that next week's free game is going to be Ark: Survival Evolved. Ark is currently available on Steam for only $40. The game was released back in 2017, after being in Early Access for two years.

Even today, developer Studio Wildcard continues to support Ark. The reviews from the community and the critics have been positive as well. Additionally, the player base is quite respectable, as this month the game had around 60,000 average players on Steam alone. We can expect this number to grow even more after the Epic Store gives it away for free.
