Rage 2 Free Next Week On Epic Games Store, Halcyon 6 Free Now
We have a trio of free games on the Epic Games Store to talk about it. However, before you get too excited, keep in mind that only one of these is available this week. It would be Halcyon 6: Starbase Commander, which is free until February 18 at 11 a.m. ET. However, people will be especially pleased to learn that the AAA title rage 2 from publisher Bethesda will be free next week with the indie drifter Absolute drift. There is a lot to talk about, so let’s go.
Halcyon 6: Starbase Commander is a turn-based tactical RPG developed by Massive Damage Games released in 2016. It tends to evoke certain XCOM and FTL vibrations, plus a good dose of humor along the way. As you will quickly notice, this game features a retro art style as well, which may strike you with just enough nostalgia to convince you to give it a go. Otherwise, we still recommend that you donate Halcyon 6: Starbase Commander a try, as it is free after all.
You can build bases to expand your abilities, explore the stars, fight aliens and other strange creatures, and enjoy a fully developed narrative. Halcyon 6: Starbase Commander also has a lot of depth. User reviews indicate a mostly positive experience, so don’t forget to claim it. Halcyon 6: Starbase Commander is also light on your PC, so you won’t need much to run it. In fact, that brings us to the next game.
Two epic games available for free next week
Absolute drift is another 2016 title that will arrive for free on the Epic Games Store alongside rage 2 Feb. 18 at 11 a.m. ET. As the name suggests, this is a game about the art of drifting on the streets. It’s pretty simple in principle, but you’ll need to master the art of precision driving to do it right. Much like the game mentioned earlier, it also won’t melt your PC, although the art style looks quite satisfying. We’ll cover this one in more detail next week.
rage 2 is clearly the star of the lineup, as it is a 2019 AAA game from id Software and Avalanche Studios. It is inspired by the themes of the Mad Max franchise with a good dose of Borders-style of action and Fall-esque monsters. The game was a bit of a bet for Bethesda, and although the reviews were correct, he never really took off with a larger audience. rage 2 is arguably a solid game, so this free chance to get it should not be missed. It even comes with free DLC that you can grab with the base game. Did we mention how beautiful?
We’ll call you back next week when the latest bundle of free games hits the Epic Games Store. Until then, enjoy the time with Halcyon 6 or whatever you’ve managed to collect for free over the years. My backlog is getting ridiculous.
