Each week, the Epic Games Store offers a number of free titles to all those with an Epic Games account. This week, account holders can get their hands on the hex-based roguelike For the King, as well as the tense and atmospheric first-person shooter Metro: Last Light from now until the 11th of February, at which point they will be replaced by Halcyon 6.
Metro: Last Light Redux is a remaster of the much loved Metro: Last Light, which originally launched back in 2013. This stealth-focused post-apocalyptic first-person shooter “follows Artyom, a young soldier living in the Moscow Metro after a devastating nuclear war”. Featuring tense and atmospheric encounters, as well as unique weapon mechanics, Metro: Last Light received high praise upon its original release.
This isn’t the first time that Epic Games have given away For the King. The title was also made available for free back in April 2020. At the time, we described For the King as ‘a challenging blend of strategy, turn-based combat, and roguelike elements where “each playthrough is unique with procedural maps, quests, and events”. Featuring single player, local and online co-op you can choose to split your party up and cover more ground, or stick together for protection!’
As previously mentioned, For the King received favourable reviews from both critics and fans alike upon its release in 2018. Since then, the game has been improved further, with new updates and expansions, all of which are included for free as part of the package.
Metro: Last Light Redux and For the King are available to purchase and download for free from now until the 11th of February, at which point they will be replaced by Halcyon 6.
