The latest free PC title on the Epic Games Store is now available with Cave Story+, the classic Metroidvania title from Studio Pixel and Nicalis. Those expecting something meatier should stay tuned next week though. Obsidian Entertainment’s Pillars of Eternity – Definitive Edition and Tyranny – Gold Edition will be offered for free on December 10th to 17th.
Pillars of Eternity is a return to the classic CRPG gameplay of yore with the player exploring Eora, meeting companions and ultimately following their destiny. The Definitive Edition includes the base game, The White March: Part 1 and 2 expansions, and the Royal Edition’s bonus content. Tyranny is also an RPG but sees the player working under the Kyros, an evil overlord that has conquered the world.
As a Fatebinder, one ventures the world, dealing with the aftermath of Kyros’ conquest and ultimately being as evil as they choose. The Gold Edition features the base game, the Bastard’s Wound expansion, Tales from the Tiers which adds new events, and other bonus content. Claiming both titles requires having an Epic Games account and the Epic Games Launcher installed.
