Epic Games Store Releases 2 New Games You Can Download and Play for Free; More Free Games Coming Next Week
If you're an Epic Games Store user, you can simply download the different games offered per week, and they are yours forever to keep. You don't need to spend a cent in order to get the game, but this only applies to the ones they release for free every Thursday.
The promo runs for a week before it's actually replaced by another game that will be available for that week, and the cycle goes on and on and on.
The good news doesn't stop there, however, as Epic Games extended the promo until the end of the year. In addition, they even released two games this week instead of one.
After Surviving Mars and its Space Race DLC, which have been up for grabs since October 10, two new games followed suit. The company also revealed that another two will follow next week. If you've observed, the same thing happened in the last two weeks of September, which means this will probably be the norm until we reach December of 2019.
That being said, the twofer being featured in the Epic Games Store this week are Observer and Alan Wake's American Nightmare - both of which will be available until October 24.
The first free game of the week is Bloober Team's cyberpunk horror game, Observer. This is a psychological horror game, set in native Poland on the year 2084, featuring a detective protagonist who solves cases by hacking into the minds of other people and augmenting his vision. It was given a 9/10 score by David Rayfield, who praised the game's storytelling and sound design.
Alan Wake's American Nightmare
The second game, on the other hand, is a supernatural and creepy thriller from Remedy. It's a spin-off of that is set in the same universe as the original Alan Wake; however, the game revolves around Night Springs, a fictional TV show that Alan watches in the first game. The protagonist, Alan, goes through a twisted journey in order to defeat his evil doppelgänger, Mr. Scratch. Although the game isn't exactly scary, the spin-off does offer some great suspenseful writing - earning it a 7/10 rating.
Coming Next Week: Aside from launching the two new games that are currently up for grab, Epic also revealed the games that its Store will offer for free next. Starting October 24, Epic Games Store users will be able to get Layers of Fear: Masterpiece Edition and QUBE 2 for free.
Layers of Fear is another psychological horror game developed by the Blooper Team. It was released back in 2016 and has a cult-following despite not making a splash after its launch.
QUBE 2, on the other hand, is a sequel of its predecessor QUBE. It's a first-person puzzle game made and developed by Toxic Games. Like Layers of Fear, it was warmly received by critics and players alike. In fact, it became rather popular in 2018.
