Epic Games Store has put on offer Cities: Skylines to claim and keep today, taking the place of Pillars of Eternity and Tyranny. At 11am ET, Epic Games Store will be giving away a new game every day for the next 14 days.

Cities: Skylines is a city-building simulator developed by Colossal Order, the developer behind Cities in Motion franchise.
