Now the last game in the free giveaway Christmas series will soon hit the stores. Speculators earlier suggested that the game might be a major AAA title. And now, as the release time is nearing, more and more confirmations are popping up on the internet confirming this.

Most speculation and rumors suggest that the next free game will be ‘Dishonored’. Developed by Arkane Studios, Dishonored is a 2012 action-adventure game. The game is unique and the player’s action affects the ending of the story. That is, every action that the player makes during the course of the narrative changes the ending that they get from the game.

The patterns in the mystery gift always give hints about the next game. And many spotted hints about this celebrated game in it. The clue was the symbol, ‘Outsider’s Mark’ which Dishonored fans would quickly recognize. It is imprinted on the hands of the Protagonist.

Moreover, many expect Epic Stores to give the entire franchise of Dishonored for free in the same way that the Epic Games Store gave away 3 Tomb Raider games.

While most people believe that the next game would surely be Dishonored, there are a few who speculated about the new free game to be Death Loop. This game is from the same developer.
