Epic Games Store: Free Games – 5th August 2021

A Plague Tale: Innocence

Although I haven’t played Plague Tale, I’ve read a lot of opinions from people who have and they’re always glowing. It’s a 3rd person action-stealth hybrid where the biggest threat you’ll face is the giant horde of rats that infests every part of the game. I’ve tried to stay spoiler-free for my own play through, so I don’t know that much about it – yet. I’ve been waiting for it to come on sale, but now that it’s free I’ll be all over it as soon as I can!


Minit is a super cool Zelda-inspired RPG that you’ve probably already heard of. You get 60 seconds to do something in the world before your character dies and you wake up in a bed somewhere. You need to use that 60 seconds wisely so you can unlock new areas, new characters and (most importantly) shortcuts so that you can reach new places. It’s an absolute gem.

Minit has been free on EGS before, back in the middle of 2019.
