It's time to reveal some new Epic Games Store free games! Much like the rumors suggested, an Epic Games Store Batman Collection is up for grabs — and the deal is way better than you think. Three LEGO Batman games and three of the Arkham franchise are all available at the tantalizing price of zero dollars!

What Are the Free Epic Games Store Batman Games?

Two bundles are being made available this week, three of which contain games from the Arkham series and three of which are from the adorable LEGO superfranchise of tie-in titles.

Batman: Arkham Asylum

Head into one of the most iconic locations in the Batman universe: Arkham Asylum. Basically an embodiment of the phrase "the inmates are running the asylum", Batman must square off against classic villains from his rogues gallery like Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, and of course, The Joker.

Batman: Arkham City

Gotham's thugs have been moved to a city of their own and Batman dives in once again to punch them in the face with his sweet ninja  skills. Mr. Freeze, The Riddler, and the Penguin join the cast of bad guys that you can pummel into a fine paste.

Batman: Arkham Knight

Batman's arms are tired from punching the Joker in his stupid face so much, so now he gets to drive around everywhere in the Batmobile for the first time in this franchise. The Scarecrow is terrorizing Gotham and the titular Arkham Knight joins the fight to help out Bats.

LEGO Batman: The Video Game

It's a Batman game but with LEGO aesthetics. Capture adorably blocky villains from his rogue's gallery, build your way to success, and totally nail that button with only one Batarang.

LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes

Gotham City is in danger again (seriously guys, can you chill for a minute) and Bats calls in a little backup. Superman, the Green Lantern, and Wonder Woman chip in to help you fend off Lex Luthor and The Joker.

LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham

Braniac wants to blow up Earth and Batman is going to stop him! Unfortunately, Braniac likes to hang out among the stars so you're going to have to leave our pale blue bot to kick him in his dumb robotic head. Don't worry, though! Batman can breathe in space.

People trying to get in on the Epic Games Store Batman deal have had a bit of trouble actually getting the games.

 

Early Launch Troubles

The Epic Games Store Batman games deal is pretty sweet; you're getting well over a hundred dollars worth of content without spending a dime. Unfortunately, it appears that there's been a bit of a problem on the backend. When you attempt to actually claim the games, the transaction doesn't appear to go through. Several other TechRaptor staff reported similar troubles, but others said that it went through for them just fine.

I happen to be one of the unfortunate folks who got stuck with this error screen, but I quite happily discovered that the appropriate games ended up in my library anyway. If you try and fail to claim them, just wait a bit and check the library on your client — odds are, they'll pop up there sooner rather than later.

If you're down to be the best ninja vigilante you can be, you can pick up the Epic Games Store Batman games right now.
