Epic Games Store - What's Free Now?

Godfall and Prison Arxhitect are free on the Epic Games Store from 9th December 2021! Here’s what I think about that!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 – 9th December 2021

Godfall: Challenger Edition

Godfall is a game that I wanted to get into but never really got the chance. It’s supposed to be a looter-slasher in the same way that the Borderlands games call themselves looter-shooters. You hack your way through enemies as one of a few character archetypes. It’s probably not something I’d spend a lot of time playing by myself, but (again, like Borderlands) I bet it’s a lot of fun playing in co-op with some friends.

The Challenger Edition is a kind of re-release after the original launch (a year ago) didn’t get the reception the developers wanted. It’s designed to streamline some of the gameplay and give players quicker access to the end-game content without the grind. And since the end-game content is what sounds like the most fun, I can totally get on board with that.

Godfall: Challenger Edition is also free on Playstation Plus in December.

Prison Architect

I was actually in the pre-alpha tests for Prison Architect and have a lot of conflicted feelings about the game and how complex some of the systems became. But even with all of that said, it’s still a great management game. You’re in charge of managing and maintaining a prison, with all the trials and tribulations that comes with the job. That means monitoring contraband items, punishing prisoners for stepping out of line, etc. The complex systems I mentioned earlier let you automate (and therefore speed up) a lot of the work, but only if you can figure out how to make it work. I couldn’t.
