Current FREE Games Promotions
RULES (Please?):

  • Game discounts, as opposed to FREE titles, go in the other thread dedicated to that purpose.
  • Include the name of the game in question, and a link to the source (if possible)
  • If the promotion expires, include the expiry date if known.
  • Strike out dead entries when you become aware of them, and a mod/admin will remove them.
  • Feel free to post when games become F2P, but these posts will be removed periodically (after a few weeks).
  • Commentary is fine, but will be removed when the thread is periodically pruned.  Commentary of value (tech support, etc) will be split out.  Please try to keep unnecessary commentary out entirely - start a new discussion topic instead.

I'll prune the thread periodically, but other moderators are welcome to help out as well.  We're going to try to keep this to a single page topic.

Re: Current FREE Games Promotions
If you are a fan of retro 16-bit platform run and gun shooters then T2002 an updated version of Turrican 2 is well worth a look. http://www.turricanforever.de/#Downloads

There is/was a nice littile community there much like ours. =Between them they made many levelpacks / mods etc, which have their own common downloader/configurator/launcher

For a much more modern take on Turrican - including being able to shoot in multiple directions and switching weapons on-the-fly then Hurrican is the game for you :-) https://www.winterworks.de/project/hurrican/

If you are in the mood for a semi-openworld semi-realistic FPS with stealth and RPG elements that looks amazing, is bloody huge and costs nowt then S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Lost Alpha migh be your thing :-) https://www.moddb.com/mods/lost-alpha

I just use GOG Galaxy 2.0.

And quite frankly, so should everyone else.

Re: Current FREE Games Promotions
Both the Shadowrun games and the New Hitman are free on epic.

Shadowrun is by the same people who made the excellent Battletech game (then and now), Dragonfall in particular gets praised a lot (and you don't have to have played any of the other ones to play Dragonfall).

The ccurrent hitman is just a really good hitman game.

Re: Current FREE Games Promotions
Although it is a fantastic game,  a genuine favourite.... I'm detecting a pattern of repetition.

Maybe it's just all the pixel-art games going around. There's so many of them.

Aye, I think Into the Breach was one of the first games I got free from Epic. It is a good game, in case anybody missed it last time.

Re: Current FREE Games Promotions
I think enter the gungeoun maybhave had a double release too.   Could be wrong *shrug*. Worst case scenario is very one gets a chance to nab one they may have missed.


Intonthe breach is great and I urge anyone who missed it to get it.

There have been a fair few double releases on Epic. But Into the Breach is one I didn't have and a game I've taken note of.
