Alien Isolation & Hand of Fate 2 are free on the Epic Games Store from 22nd April 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 – 22nd April 2021
Alien Isolation is one of the best horror games of recent years and is probably responsible for the feel of the more recent Resident Evil games. It captures the look and feel of the Alien franchise (before it became a dead horse that 20th Century Fox keeps beating). You’re always afraid, you’re always in danger. Before Alien Isolation I can’t even remember when a game made me feel overwhelming dread – in a good way!
This was free on EGS back in December, but if you still haven’t played it and you missed it back then, this is your chance to fic that mistake.
Hand of Fate 2
I feel like Hand of Fate 2 got a bad rap when it came out. The original game showed some promise but didn’t quite hit the mark. The sequel fixed most of the stuff that didn’t work in the first one, making it into an interesting combination of turn-based board game and 3rd person action brawler. I even did a Hand of Fate 2 video series back in 2018! I’d have liked the brawler sections to have been a little more fleshed out, but I really think it did something cool with the roguelike (ugh) genre. Well worth a look while it’s free.
What a week!
