Time for free games from Epic Store! You have until 10 September to download Into The Breach for free. Last week, Epic Games gave away Hitman (2016) and Shadowrun collection; read more about it here.
The new collection of freebies replaced last week’s titles at 17:00 South African Standard Time (SAST) on September 2020.
Into the Breach, which was developed and published by Subset Games back in February 2018, as a rogue-lite turn-based strategy game. Control powerful mechs from the future to defeat an alien threat.
Each attempt to save the world presents a new randomly generated challenge in this turn-based strategy game from the makers of FTL. I’ll be honest, turn-based is not really my jam, but the reviews from fans are positive.
It is free, so no harm in trying! Into the Breach is Subset Games’ second game, following the success of FTL: Faster Than Light, which a received a whopping 9.6/10 score on IGN.
Alex Wiltshire from PC Gamer gave Into The Breach 93 out of 100 and described it as “agonising, challenging and intensely rewarding”, while Matt Miller from Game Informer gave it a 9.3 out 10 and said:
“The simple presentation belies a deep and engaging gameplay loop that unfolds over multiple playthroughs, as new unlocks completely change required tactics”.
Get Into The Breach here from 17:00 SAST. You have until 10 September 2020 to download it for free.
Hitman needs no introduction whatsoever, but let’s do it anyway. Developed and published by IO Interactive A/S, Hitman is a stealth game that introduces you to Agent 47, the mean-looking guy in all the posters.
In the standard edition, you are given the ultimate playground to become the master assassin while eliminating your targets “with everything from a katana or a sniper rifle to an exploding golf ball”.
Epic’s free download this week features all of the Season One locations from the Prologue, Paris, Sapienza, Marrakesh, Bangkok, Colorado, and Hokkaido. New equipment and missions will become available as you progress.
The Shadowrun Collection includes Shadowrun Returns, as well as Shadowrun Dragonfall (Director Cut) and Shadowrun Hong Kong (Extended Edition). Moreover, you get all that and it will cost you nothing.
The game was created 25 years ago and has gained a large cult following since then. It has now been modernised and takes place in the Seattle metroplex while the search for a mysterious killer continues.
