Late last year, Epic launched the Epic Games Store and promised a free game every two weeks for a year. Everyone loves free stuff and this was a great promise to make to PC gamers. So far, Epic has delivered with some quality titles, from Subnautica to Super Meat Boy and most recently, Jackbox Party Pack. Now, the next free game from the Epic Games Store has been announced and it is yet again a great one.
The next free game that PC gamers can take advantage of on the Epic Games Store will be Axiom Verge, a retro-styled Metroid-like action adventure title that released on 5 October 2017. The next free game has, just like the previous free games on the Epic Games Store, received rave reviews from critics and gamers alike. Axiom Verge has an 87 score on Metacritic, while on Steam it has a “Very Positive” user review rating.
Axiom Verge will be available for free on the Epic Games Store from 7 February to 21 February and I, for one, will be grabbing it next month. For those who need more convincing to pick up a free game, check out the game’s description and trailer below.
About Axiom Verge
This is the action-adventure you’ve been waiting decades for. After a lab accident, a scientist awakens in a mysterious, alien world. Is this a distant planet? The far future? Or a complex virtual-reality computer simulation?
Plumb the recesses of a large, labyrinthine world in order to learn its secrets and uncover your role within it.
Discover tons of weapons, items, and abilities, each with their own unique behaviors and usage. You’ll need your wits to find them all.
Combat bizarre biomechanoid constructs, the deadly fallout of an ancient war, and the demons of your own psyche.
And finally, break the game itself by using glitches to corrupt foes and solve puzzles in the environment.
Life. Afterlife. Real. Virtual. Dream. Nightmare. It’s a thin line.
It’s Axiom Verge.
