A Trio Of Great PC Games Are Free Right Now
The Epic Games Store is ringing in 2020 by giving away three free PC games until January 9 at 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET. The freebies represent the end of Epic’s 12 Days of Free Games promotion that actually ended up lasting a full two weeks. To claim the free games, you just need to have a free Epic account.
Two of the free games come from the Darksiders series. If you haven’t played the post-apocalyptic action series that pits angels against demons, now’s your chance to start from the beginning of the saga. Darksiders Warmastered Edition and Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition are remastered versions of the first two games in the series. Both games offer quality hack and slash gameplay and awesome atmospheres. Darksiders received an 8/10 in GameSpot’s original 2010 review, and Darksiders II earned an 8.5/10 in GameSpot’s original 2012 review.
Quite a departure from Darksiders, Steep is a 2016 extreme sports sim from Ubisoft. Though focused on snowboarding and skiing, Steep also has paragliding, sledding, base jumping, and wingsuit flying. Steep earned a 7/10 in GameSpot’s review. Critic Leif Johnson praised the open world mountain and the game’s overall variety while lamenting the lack of objective rewards beyond cosmetics.
