Today’s free game in the 15 Days of Free Games is Alien: Isolation. You can find out if it’s worth picking up right here!
This year for Christmas, Epic is doing 15 days of free games, with each title only being available for 24 hours. Here’s today’s offering as well as what I think about it!
Epic Games Store: 15 Days of Free Games – 21st December 2020
I don’t need to tell you that this one’s good. You already know. It’s been out for a couple of years and everyone has gone crazy enough about it that you can’t still be on the fence. I’m not usually into stealth, but I got super into Alien Isolation. I love the Aliens universe anyway, so I guess that was inevitable.
So I don’t feel like I need to go into too much detail here. You’ll be sneaking around a space station, hiding from the titular alien in cupboards, lockers and running for your life. It’s incredibly intense and forces you into a lot of genuinely tense situations. A while ago I wanted to stream it with a heart monitor, to find out just how scared it made me. Unfortunately that didn’t work out (my watch is too old to support software that sends the display somewhere else) but it still freaked me out. Awesome game. Just a shame that we don’t seem to be getting a sequel.
Here’s the link to my 15 Days of Free Games hub post for the full list!
