Though Playdead’s Limbo is currently the latest PC game free on the Epic Games Store, next week will see two games given away for free. Digital Sun’s Moonlighter and 11 bit Studios’ This War of Mine will be free on July 25th via the storefront. It’s an interesting first, and again, you just need to make an Epic Games account, download the launcher, and claim the titles on your account.
Digital Sun’s Moonlighter combines Zelda-style dungeon exploring with pixel graphics and item selling. You head into dungeons, fight of all manner of foes, ransack any available materials, and sell them for a profit. This usually goes into new weapons and armour to allow for further exploration. Next week is actually a good time to try out Moonlighter, since its first paid expansion, Between Dimensions, is out on July 23rd.
This War of Mine is 11 bit Studios’ critically acclaimed survival title set during the Siege of Sarajevo in the Bosnian War. Players must manage a group of survivors, sending them out to gather the necessary resources by any means necessary. It’s received a fair bit of DLC, including the Stories Season Pass for three new tales.
