Hyper Light Drifter and Mutant Year Zero
For the better part of the past year, Epic Games has been giving away free games on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. It’s usually stuff you’d want, too! A glut of truly quality indie titles has been the backbone for the start of many people’s Epic Games Store library.
This week features a pair of games that have two things in common: They share a post-apocalyptic theme and they’re both rather excellent.Hyper Light Drifter andMutant Year Zero are both free on the Epic Games Store until August 22. Both RPGs, one leans into turn-based tactical combat whereas the other is more of a straight action game. There’s a lot of love for both of them, though.
Surprisingly, this week is something of an anomaly for the Epic Games Store — although it might be turning into a trend. Since the introduction of this program, most weeks have featured a single freebie. However, that changed in early August whenFor Honor andAlan Wake were both given away. Only a week later, 11bit carried the torch asMoonlighter andThis War of Mine were free. This offering, however, is the best dual-game giveaway yet.
Next week reverts back to normal and shifts perspectives a bit asFez will be the Epic Games Store free title.
