At the end of the line : PC Building Simulator is free on the Epic Games Store for a limited time. For some, that might be as close to building a new PC as what you’ll get this holiday season given the continued inaccessibility of some graphics cards.
Depending on where you fall in the geek spectrum, PC Building Simulator probably sounds like a lot of fun or totally uninteresting. The simulation tasks players with creating and growing their own computer repair empire, where you will gain valuable experience or hone existing skills in PC diagnostics, repair, and construction. There’s also a free building mode and tutorial to help newcomers get started on the right track.
PC Building Simulator found its way to Steam through the platform’s Early Access program in 2018 and lost its beta status a year later. The game offers many licensed real-world components as well as a full hardware and software simulation. There’s a lot of attention to detail to admire, from custom water cooling setups and overclocking to cable management and benchmarks.
PC Building Simulator normally orders $ 19.99 from storefronts like Steam and the Epic Games Store, but from now through October 14, you can grab the title for free courtesy of Epic.
Speaking of freebies, Epic has a few more add-ons in the works, including Paladins Epic Pack and Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse. Be sure to check out Epic’s Free Games page for more details and other free titles.
