For Honor and Alan Wake Available for Free on Epic Games Store
3D-puzzle GNOG is next on the giveaway list
Following the giveaway of Moonlighter and This War of Mine, Epic Games Store has launched another offer. This week, users can also grab two games for free, For Honor and Alan Wake. The offer is live till August 9.
Alan Wake tells a story about a writer of the same name, whose wife disappears while the couple is on vacation. In a search for his loved one, Wake reveals dark secrets about the town of Bright Falls. A dark presence stalks the town, pushing him to the brink of sanity.
Gameplay-wise, it’s a horror game with a clever mechanic that turns your flashlight into a weapon that can stun and weaken deadly dark creatures. A narrative is presented in the style of a TV series — the game’s developers from Remedy later expanded this concept in Quantum Break.
Here’s a trailer for the game:
This week’s other free title is For Honor. It’s an online duel-focused slasher set in a medieval fantasy world, where you can choose to play as Knight, Viking, Samurai or Wu Lin. Each battle feels like a very intense and fast chess match that requires you to choose the timing and direction of every hit and block wisely.
There are deep customization and leveling systems for each character. If you dislike multiplayer battles, you can compete against AI.
Since the launch in 2017, the game has been receiving big content updates that add new characters and more.
