Lotta Epic news today
Epic giving away two solid games as part of its ongoing weekly promotion of freebies is somehow only the thirdmost important Epic news of the day. Tim Sweeney and crew are going to war with Apple over the way it handles payment processing. Less heavy, Creative Assembly’s A Total War Saga: Troyis free today (and today only) as part of a bonkers launch day offering.
Don’t let all that completely distract you from this week’s free Epic titles, though. Remnant: From the Ashesis free until next Thursday, and that should help scratch the Souls-like itch for a little while. It’s more than just a spin on the From formula. Remnant: From the Ashesis also a looter shooter from the modern-dayDarksidersdeveloper Gunfire Games. It’s a weird game but Chris says it’s one that’s worth checking out.
Accompanying Remnantis The Alto Collection— made up of Alto’s Adventureand Alto’s Odyssey— which is a beautiful and chill-looking side-scrolling snowboarding game. It’s a duo that was originally developed for mobile, but has been repackaged together on PC and consoles. It seems like the type of thing that’ll help take the edge off.
Next week, however, is all edges again. Epic is serving up two hectic roguelikes, Enter the Gungeonand God’s Trigger. Prepare for frustration over and over again.
