Self-quarantine has gone on for weeks now for a lot of people. Fortunately, the pandemic is giving rise to even more gaming opportunities as people find a way to keep themselves entertained while staying safe at home.

A perk of this added demand for gaming has been free offering after free offering. This is the constant at Epic Games Store. It’s happening once again on April 23. This time, it’s the strategic RPG For the King. It will be completely free to download all the way until the 30th. That’s nearly a week that you have to add this incredible and heart-warming RPG to your collection.

For the King originally released in 2017 and it’s unique in that it blends tabletop and roguelike elements together. You can play solo or co-op offline or online, depending on your personal preference. It’s great that IronOak Games gives you various mode options because it lets you pick one that suits your style of play.

Given that the maps, quests, and events are all procedurally generated, no two play-throughs are a like. As a result, this game has amazing re-playability. Each run through is a new opportunity to experience new adventures and lands that keep you engaged from start to finish.

Another shining aspect of For the King is its co-op play. Banding together with a team and taking out the evil forces that are now threatening the lands of Fahrul makes for an exciting adventure. The developer has given you many ways to approach battles and scenarios too. For example, you can split up and take out a lot of forces at one time or stay together and take down difficult enemies. The combat strategies are endless.

Speaking of the combat, it has a turn-based design. You will thus have to use a lot of strategy as far as when and who to attack. The slightest miscalculation in your attack and defenses can result in your demise. There is thus plenty of tension with every battle that unfolds. Each victory is one step closer to becoming the hero of Fahrul.

As you progress in the game, you’ll get to collect a bevvy of resources that can help out in battle. You also have plenty of special abilities to master no matter what adventures you embark on. All in all, For the King is an incredible offering that provides hours and hours of fun combat, exploration, and team play.
