If you’re a gamer, or you just visitoccasionally, you probably know that gives away at least one free game every Thursday. Each week is a new treat, with past weeks dispensing such gems as GTA 5, Borderlands 2, Hitman and Watch Dogs 2. This week, Epic has queued up a pair of games, each usually selling for $20 — For the King and Metro: Last Light Redux.
For The King is a blend of strategy and turn-based combat with a solid mix of roguelike elements. Each game is unique thanks to the procedurally generated maps, quests and events. You can play single player, local or online co-op.
It’s the year 2034, and beneath the ruins of post-apocalyptic Moscow, in the tunnels of the Metro, the remnants of mankind are besieged by deadly threats from outside. And within. This shooter is a lightly remastered version of Last Light, which includes all the DLC packages released after the original Metro: Last Light game.
If you’re new to Epic’s weekly giveaway, here’s how it works: If you don’t already have one, sign up for your free Epic account. Then just claim your free games — they’re yours to keep forever. You don’t even need to install them right away if you don’t want to.
