Hyper Light Drifter and Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden Available for Free on Epic Games Store
Fez is next on the giveaway list
Following the giveaway of GNOG, Epic Games Store has launched another offer. This week, users can grab two games for free instead of one, Hyper Light Drifter and Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden. The offer is live till August 22.
Hyper Light Drifter is an action-adventure isometric game in classic 16-bit style. The main protagonist, The Drifter, uses his energy sword that can be upgraded with modules. There is a deep combat system that combines a melee sword, long-range guns, bombs, and various area attacks.
Hyper Light Drifter is often compared to the Dark Souls series because this game can be pretty challenging at times, but never unfair to a player.

This week’s other free title is Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden. It’s a strategy-RPG set in a dystopian world where after the outbreak of deadly Red Plague and global nuclear war, humans have largely become extinct, with the few surviving ones becoming mutants, having been affected by radiation.
The game has isometric tactical gameplay that looks and plays very similar to the XCOM series. Players control a party of three characters as they navigate the game's world. Different characters have different abilities and skills, so you have to choose how to compose the party. There is a leveling system, skill trees, and many possible approaches to the same situations, including stealth.
