Who doesn’t love a gift? As most PC gamers are well aware, the Epic Games Store offers free games every week. Once claimed, they are tied to your Epic account and are yours for good. Titles change weekly, and you never know what Epic will pull out of its bag of tricks next.
This week’s games are The shadow of the Tomb Raider: definitive Editingand australian gem Submerged: hidden depths. Also on the go: the Armazillo DLC pack for Knockout City. All three will be available for free from today until September 9, 2022 at 1:00 AM AEST.
This piece is updated weekly.
Submerged: hidden depths
Submerged: hidden depths is a sequel to the original from Canberra studio Uppercut Games Overwhelmed. It’s a third-person exploration game set in a flooded post-apocalyptic world. On your small boat, you’ll hop between villages built on the crumbling spiers of ancient skyscrapers, diving below the surface to collect treasure and uncover the secrets of the world that was. Originally a Stadia exclusive, Submerged: hidden depths went into a wider release in March of this year. One of the dormant indies of 2022, and a perfect opportunity to grab it for the low price of nothing at all. Seriously, that’s really cool. Play it.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition
Shadow of the Tomb Raider, the third and final chapter of the character-defining Crystal Dynamics reboot, will also be free this week. This is the Definitive Edition, which means you get all the additional DLCs and costumes included in the package. It was developed by CD in partnership with Eidos, as it ramped up production on marvel’s Avengers. At the time of its launch, it looked like Shadow lived in the shadow of its excellent predecessor The Rise of the Tomb Raider. It may be time to reevaluate. If you’ve never played this third game, which brings Lara back to the jungle settings of the first games, you can pick it up for free until this time next week.
Knockout City: Armazillo DLC Pack
The Armazillo DLC pack for knock out Town is basically a new skin and some extra goodies. Here is what it contains:
- Kaiju Terror Outfit
- Armazillo face mask
- Kaiju Claw Gloves
- City Crusher Defeat Pose
- Armazillo player icon
- Nuclear Fallout Crew Logo
If you have never played Knockout City, who is a competitive team brawler on dodgeball. It’s a free game, and it will give you a skin to start with. Try it if you want.
A glimpse of the future: next week’s matches are Hundred Days, which is a winemaking simulation. Also on the way: the Reforged Royal Kingdom Epic Launch Pack. We’ll talk about that next week.
