Epic Games Store: Free Games – 27th August 2020
Hitman (as if you don’t know by now) is an awesome, free-form sandbox where you can use any means necessary to assassinate your targets. Stealth ususally isn’t my thing, but Hitman does everything right. And there’s no fixed way to do it, so everything is allowed. From straight up sniper kills to the waiting game of poisoning a target or making them go to the bathroom, you really can play this however you want to. It benefits from multiple play throughs, to learn the fixed timing of everyone’s movements, but it’s definitely worth it. And the GOTY edition adds even more missions and even more ways to kill!
I’ve had the Shadowrun games for years but never really played them. Which is strange, because a cyberpunk turn-based tactical RPG (think Syndicate meets XCOM) seems like just my kind of thing. And with this being the Collector’s Edition, it includes both the Dragonfall and Hong Kong expansions. Maybe it’s time for me to go back and try it!
