Epic Games Store has maintained its weekly free games campaign for a while now. Since December 2018, the famous PC storefront has been making a game free for a week. Earlier, this was merely a strategy to pull the non-Fortnite players into its client-base.
But with time, it has benefitted the company in more than one way. Since then, it has given away a dozen games and plans to continue doing so till the end of 2020. However, this time the store has made not one, but two games absolutely free!
Epic Games Store Makes Its Signature Game Free
From April 30 to May 7, Epic Games has made Amnesia: The Dark Descent and Crashlands free.
Launched back in 2010 by Frictional Games, Amnesia: The Dark Descent is a critically acclaimed horror game. Besides, it also made huge sales. In fact, this game is responsible for putting its developer on the map.
Meanwhile, Crashlands debuted in 2016. Though it didn’t leave a big mark on either critics or the market, it still gave a respectable performance. Butterscotch Shenanigans has developed it.
Amnesia: The Dark Descent
It is a first-person survival horror game. The game is about a man stranded in an abandoned and dark castle full of horrifying creatures. And the player has little to no means of self-preservation. Hence, they are forced to run for their survival. But they must stay out of sight of the monsters in the castle. It is a game about living through a nightmare.
The stranded player must complete the tasks given to them on an alien planet. Here, you should fight off alien beasts, craft resources in weaponry, make friends with outlandish locals, and go one on one against a world-domineering maniac.
