The period of festive gifts is not over for Epic Games Store users. If you have not been paying attention, the digital storefront has been giving away a new game for free daily. This streak of generosity will last until the year’s close. Following the arrival of Tropico 5, today’s free Epic Games Store holiday game is the critically acclaimed indie hit, Inside. Playdead’s follow-up to Limbo definitely comes highly recommended, and it deserves every bit of the praise that comes its way. Now you will get to experience it for yourself and be the judge.
The award-winning indie title sends players on an adventure that is full of intense action and challenging puzzles. The dark narrative definitely packs a punch, and not to mention the game’s moody art style, ambient soundtrack, and generally unsettling atmosphere make for a wonderful time.
Just like Limbo, expect Inside to bring the kind of storytelling Playdead is well known for. Hidden layers, secrets, and plenty of lore will help you get a better understanding of this particular world. Not to mention a heightened sense of appreciation for the work that went into the game.
Gifts for everyone
For a game like Inside to be part of the Epic Games Store holiday giveaway is a blessing for gamers. You are not just getting a free game, but a quality game that is up there with the best of them. I cannot imagine just how much better your festive plans can get, and having Inside is just a sweet bonus.
Of course, this is not the end of the Epic Games Store holiday free games extravaganza. After the likes of Alien: Isolation, Metro 2033, Tropico 5, and now Inside, there are seven more games to look forward to. While a leaked list of the games has been accurate thus far, I would not be surprised if Epic throws a curveball at us in the coming days.
If you rather not wait, there is also the Epic Games Store Holiday Sale going on right now. There are even coupons for discounts, so grab them while you can.
