Epic Games Store: New free games with environmental rescue and Japanese real-time strategy

Epic Games Store (Sonstiges) von Epic Games

While PlayStation players shell out around 80 euros for God of War Ragnark this week, PC fans can again look forward to two free titles in the Epic Games Store.

After dishing out space puzzle fun at Filament last week and hard-hitting multiplayer gunfights in Rising Storm 2: Vietnam, this week’s free offering again consists of two distinctly different game categories.

Alba – A Wildlife Adventure: Cute island trip with learning effect

While the days are getting shorter and shorter, some people must be longing for a trip to a tropical island, and they are in Alba—A Wildlife Adventure on the daily menu. Unfortunately, the short vacation for protagonist Alba turns out to be quite a letdown: the whole island is cluttered and urgently needs spring cleaning.

As you clear the beach of cans and pick up plastic bags from the sidewalk, you’ll learn more about the island’s flora and fauna, take photos and do something good for the environment. The decelerating adventure is not only good for the soul, but also for your brain: Alba – A Wildlife Adventure imparts knowledge about nature in a playful way.

Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun – You shall be five assassins

Instead of birdsong and the rushing of the river, you get Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun especially the clash of swords. The real-time strategy title is set in 17th-century Japan and throws you in the middle of political intrigue and bloody assassination. As the new shogun, you only really want to bring peace to the country, but sometimes you have to resort to heavy artillery.

It’s good that you have five experts in the killing business at your fingertips in Takuma, Mugen, Aiko, Yuki and Hayato. Of course, each of them has their own strengths and shines in different situations, so the five assassins want to be used with care. So corpse for corpse she gets closer to a more peaceful Japan – pretty contradictory.

Free next week on the Epic Games Store

If you want to get in touch with nature peacefully in Alba – A Wildlife Adventure or let the weapons do the talking in Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun, then you have the opportunity now: Both games can be played for free until November 17th at 5 p.m downloaded and are then permanently available in your library.
