In case you didn’t have enough games stuffing that Christmas stocking, Epic Games’ 12 Days of Free Games initiative has provided another free title. This time it’s Mimimi’s Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun, a squad-based stealth title set in feudal Japan. Simply login to your Epic Games Store account, claim the game for free and it’s yours to keep forever.
Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun takes inspiration from the likes of Commandos, featuring different characters with their own unique abilities. Chaining together different skills with the right timing will help to get by difficult sections. It’s tough but tactical strategy fans may relish the challenge.
Developer Mimimi is also working on Desperados 3 which is out in 2020 so expect even more squad-based strategy goodness in the future. Make sure to claim Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun by 9 AM PST today. After that, it will be replaced by a new title (which seems to be Croteam’s The Talos Principle).
