NBA 2K21 Is Free On The Epic Games Store Today

NBA 2K21, which is usually £49.99, can be secured by adding to your account. These are, in fact, permanent additions to your library, too.

Coincidentally, 2K has also confirmed that players can “now also experience cross play for NBA 2K21 on Epic and Steam platforms”.

The title will be free to download until May 27th, at which point it'll be replaced by a new title. While Epic usually reveals these a week in advance, it's begun offering "mystery games" - such as NBA 2K21 prior to reveal.

It also appears that Epic is returning to its 'Vault' moniker in the run-up to E3, which last year saw high-profile free games like Grand Theft Auto 5, Civilization 6, and Borderlands: The Handsome Collection.
