Check out the latest 15 free games offered by the Epic Games Store
The online store did exactly what it promised, delivering 15 games in 15 days. The list pleased many players but offered gifts that were largely ignored by the public.
The promotion of the Epic Games Store, the virtual store of the Fortnite developer, today The Epic Games Store offered its latest 15 free games. The company did exactly what it promised, making a game available every 24 hours for the past 15 days. Some titles were not very successful among the players, including causing complaints on social networks, however other games pleased the public making the promotion generally considered positive. Survival fans had the most reason to celebrate, with the list offering titles focused on this genre and others that take advantage of many similar elements and mechanics.
With a poor start, Epic Games offered Cities: Skylines and Oddworld: New n Tasty in the first two days of the promotion, discouraging players who were hopeful due to a leaked list that indicated several triple A’s being offered for free. However, in the following four days, the audience saw three interesting names being distributed, which gave strength to the promotion and showed that good gifts would really appear during the 15 days.
The titles in question were The Long Dark (third day), Alien: Isolation (fifth day), and Metro 2033 (sixth day).
The Long Dark is a journey of survival in the cold that takes players to the limit, putting them in a fight against temperature, hunger, thirst, and ferocious animals that make everything even more complicated. In turn, Alien: Isolation is also a title that offers a lot of tension to the players, making the audience have to sneak through the corridors of a ship in which enemy androids and the terrible alien are on the loose. Already Metro 2033 is an FPS survival horror that shows the journey of a man created in the underground after the apocalypse that wiped out almost all life on earth, taking players to a dangerous world full of mutant creatures and opponents.
After the three major titles, the promotion returned to days below the players’ expectations. Games like Night in the Woods and Solitairica were gifts that were not successful, certainly being ignored by a large part of the public.
Darkest Dungeon, the turn-based RPG from Red Hooks Studios, also showed up, making it one of the most celebrated games by users of the online store in these 15 days. The game allows you to recruit, train and control a group of heroes during a Gothic journey, featuring mysteries, monsters, a narration system that tracks your defeats and victories, and interesting turn-based combat.
For survival fans, Stranded Deep was also an interesting gift. The Beam Team Games title puts players in the shoes of a plane crash survivor. Exploring, creating items and hunting are some of the ways to stay alive in this game that follows the standard of the genre.
To end the promotion, Jurassic World Evolution is being offered today (31). The game can be considered a good final gift, especially by fans of management titles and dinosaur lovers. In Jurassic World Evolution you must create your own dinosaur park, choosing which beasts will be displayed to the public and dealing with the problems that can arise when controlling such an incredible and dangerous attraction.
