Two good games for the holiday season.
Considering the state of the world right now, it doesn’t quite feel like the witching season, but we are just over a week from Halloween. It’s a time when all industries try to put out their spookiest efforts in whatever way, and that includes the Epic Games Store in this week’s free game slate.
This weeks games include the charming RPG Costume Quest 2. The game was a sequel to Double Fine’s rather wholesome title and sees a group of kids fighting evil candy stealing monsters and time traveling doctors on Halloween night in a variety of powerful costumes. The other game is on the opposite side of the spectrum, Layers of Fear 2. It is a first person title that sees you trapped on a boat as a deranged former filmmaker terrifies you through twisted versions of classic film. Just to give you an idea of how long these free giveaways have been going on, both of theses title’s predecessors were given away on the store roughly one year ago.
Costume Quest 2 and Layers of Fear 2 are available to redeem for free on Epic Games Store now, which you can find through here. They will be up until October 29th, and after that the Halloween season will continue with Blair Witch and Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered.
