The Epic Games Store is adding another free PC game to its library. That title is none other than Rebel Galaxy, the space trading and combat simulator developed by Double Damage Games. It will be completely free for a week, giving PC gamers the perfect chance to experience all of its glory for quite a while.

If you’re looking for a grand space adventure, this simulator is a must-play game. A lot of what you’ll be doing is fighting spaceships on the last frontier. You’ll have to man a ship, which is equipped with all sorts of unique weapons. These include missiles, mines, and even beams. The variety keeps the combat fresh, and there are a lot of tactics you’ll have to master early on to have success.

For example, while firing off a couple of heavy-duty missiles, you’ll have to prepare for enemy fire. The movement of your ship and your deflection tactics will determine if you survive the fight. You never really know who’s friend or foe in this game until you’re being attacked.

Sure, there are warning indicators — but for the most part — you’ll have to do some military planning on the fly. That’s not a bad thing, though. It keeps you on your toes to the point where you’re constantly engaged in every battle.

As far as the missions and things you can do in this game, there is so much variety. You have the chance to take on many roles, including bounty hunters, traders, and miners. The position you take is completely up to you, and you’re even given the chance to decide what missions you go on.

You can stay the course and complete the main missions, or if you’re feeling like a dare-devil, you can see what the side quests have to offer. There is no wrong decision; just the freedom to design your space adventures as you see fit.

When you’re not manning certain parts of the ship, AI takes over. It’s not that bad, either. At times, it really feels like you’re managing different crew members for the greater good of the ship. If you’re looking for a game filled with plenty of action and pretty decent 2D graphics, Rebel Galaxy is a great game to check out on the Epic Games Store. It won’t be free for long so if you’re up for an adventure, now’s the time to embark on it.
