Summer is almost over, but that doesn’t mean game deals have to stop. They’re still going strong through the Epic Games Store. Last week, the platform gave away Moonlight and This War of Mine for free to PC users. Next week, users will have another set of free games to look forward to.

First up is the action-adventure game For Honor developed by Ubisoft. If you like history and ancient combat, you’re going to love this game. There are three different factions featured in this game: Knights, Vikings, and the Samurai. These three factions have been heavily engaged in war ever since resources started to dwindle. To stay alive, they had to become victorious on the battlefield.

This war has gone on throughout the ages. An angry warlord Apollyon drives this war forward for the pure reason of destruction. The main campaign focuses on each faction and the brutal battles they had to endure. Each faction has a unique set of warriors in it. Some warriors rely on heavy-based attacks while others are more agile. This diversity keeps gameplay fresh even after spending several hours with this game.

The combat system is also worth noting. Instead of relying on hack-and-slash attacks, you’ll be required to use a lot of strategy. For example, you’ll have to know what your opponents are throwing to stop their attack. Overall, this games offers a lot of value and the multiplayer is also spectacular.

The other free game that will appear on the Epic Games Store next week is Alan Wake. Remedy Entertainment is the party responsible for this highly entertaining action-adventure game. The story is pretty unique here. Alan Wake is a best-selling thriller novelist who’s on the path of discovery the truths regarding his wife’s disappearance.

He ends up in a fictional city of Bright Falls, Washington. The thriller angle comes into play when events of the plot from his latest novel start occurring in real life. The game plays out like a television show, where there are six total episodes included. Each one is filled with mysteries and cliffhangers that keep you on the edge of your seat.

If you like investigative games and even survival-horror titles like Silent Hill, Alan Wake will be right up your alley. It’s an emotional journey that you won’t soon forget.

These games won’t be free forever. If you have some free time and want to delve deep into same great action and suspense, visit the Epic Games Store next week.
