Each week, the Epic Games Store offers a free game or two to all of those with an EGS account. After a week of teasing a mystery title, the storefront has now revealed that this week’s free game is Remedy’s Control – a unique and atmospheric third-person action adventure shooter.
Available to purchase for free from now until the 17th of June at 4pm BST (but will remain in your library indefinitely), Control is the latest game from the unique minds at Remedy Entertainment. Known for developing Alan Wake and Max Payne, Control takes all of the best elements from the studio’s previous projects, making a game that is both fun to play with satisfying shooting and movement mechanics, while also offering an intriguing and atmospheric world with which to explore.
The game is also visually impressive, utilising the industry’s latest technologies including ray-tracing, DLSS, and realistic physics, making for a showpiece title. Control’s Season Pass is also currently 50% off, allowing you to experience the full award-winning title for just £5.99.
Alongside Control, Genshin Impact has also been added to the store. Originally a free-to-play title anyway, Genshin Impact previously required a separate launcher to play. It coming to the Epic Games Store makes for one less launcher required. Furthermore, using the code ‘GenshinEpic’ players can obtain some free in-game items.
