Goat Simulator is easily one of the most popular gaming title in the iOS kingdom, and usually retails for $4.99 on the App Store. Well, it still does, but IGN has partnered up with the game’s developer, Coffee Stain, to offer the title for absolutely free as part of a IGN’s ‘Free Game of the Month’ initiative. We help you get the game up and running on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch without spending a dime, right here.

If you haven’t played Goat Simulator before, don’t let the ‘simulator’ bit confuse you; it is anything but that. You’ll simply be taking control of a clue-less goat and cause all kinds of destruction around the town. If you’re wondering why that’s the objective, it was either that, or walking your goat around a farm.


The promo is available in over 44 countries as of this writing, and will not require an IGN registration or account, so basically it’s free for all as long as you have a working U.S. based iTunes account. If you don’t have a U.S. iTunes account, you can follow our guide here to make one: How To Create US, UK Or Any App Store / iTunes Account Anywhere In The World. So without further ado, let’s get started with downloading Goat Simulator to your iOS device for free.
