The Epic Games store is launching two free games for subscribers today, while also revealing what will replace those titles on November 10.
Like clockwork, the Epic Games Store released the new games for November 3 and revealed what will follow them on November 10. Many Epic Games Store users are likely familiar with the cadence: every Thursday at 10 a.m. CT, EGS releases its previously announced games and unveils new ones.
This means that the first free Epic Games Store games for November 2022, Filament and Rising Storm 2: Vietnam, are now available to claim. The first is an indie strategy puzzle game, where players must solve the mystery of the disappearance of the crew aboard a ship known as The Alabaster. The second is a shooter focused on precision and brutal realism. Both are pretty straightforward recommendations, so they’re worth checking out. However, if some players aren’t happy with that, they already know what to expect on November 10.
From November 10 to 17, the Epic Games Store will offer Alba: A Wildlife Adventure and Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun. Alba is described as a “chillectathon” and casual adventure game where players must find AIWRL, an organization that can help save the island. The game features handmade visuals, a variety of animal species, great music, and a relaxing atmosphere. Alba currently has a Metacritic score of 79 and could be a great game for animal lovers to relax.
At the other end of the spectrum is Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun which describes itself as a “hardcore tactical stealth game”. A new shogun in Japan tries to impose a play nationwide, where he enlists five specialists. Each of these characters is playable with unique skills, while the game features several “seemingly impossible” encounters where players meet, must find unique ways to take down their opponents, and attack from all angles. Luckily, though, there are three difficulty levels for those who want to backtrack or ramp up its “hardcore” elements.
Perhaps most exciting for Epic Games Store users right now is the upcoming holiday season. Typically, the Epic Games Store offers a selection of free mystery games for consecutive days, with 15 games being offered last year. These ranged from huge AAA games like Control to smaller, but beloved indie titles. Either way, as the holidays approach, it will be an exciting time for gamers on virtually all platforms.
Epic Games Store users receive a handful of games each month.
