MudRunner is free on the Epic Games Store from 26th November 2020! Before you pick it up, here’s what I think about it.
Here are the games currently free of charge on the Epic Games Store. These are typically only around for a week, so if you see anything you like the look of you’d better move fast before they disappear!
Epic Games Store: Free Games – 26th November 2020
I haven’t played a ton of MudRunner, but I’ve spent enough time with it to get what it’s all about. A mission where you just need to drive some logs from one part of a map to the other doesn’t sound that challenging, but MudRunner will definitely make you think twice. Vehicles sink into mud, it gets lodged in your tyres and it’s entirely possible to get totally stuck and need to reset and restart. The very act of driving a truck in a game doesn’t usually feel so amazing, but there’s something very satisfying about it here. Using just a map and compass, switching traction control/locking diff on and off, hooking your winch around a nearby tree and pulling yourself out of a hole that you made yourself is incredibly chill and I love it.
I was expecting another game to drop this month, but it hasn’t happened. I guess that’s okay, because I reckon MudRunner is worth picking up on its own.
