Download, Play And Keep For Honor And Alan Wake For Free

Like most people, “free” is my favourite word, especially when it relates to video games.

Next week will see the iconic horror title Alan Wake and the equally-iconic For Honor become the latest free games downloadable from the Epic Games Store.

If you sign up to the Epic Games Store you’ll be able to download, play and keep the titles for free, which is great, but also problematic for those who take issue with the Epic Store.

Since it launched last year, the Epic Store has been fraught with controversy, with lots of players refusing to use the client in favour of Steam.

The words “Epic exclusivity” now bring a slither of fear into the hearts of gamers, as more and more developers choose Epic over Steam for their releases.

If you really want to play For Honor and Alan Wake though, cast your morals aside and get downloading.

For Honor‘s official description reads: “Enter the chaos of war as a bold Knight, brutal Viking, deadly Samurai or swift Wu Lin, a legendary Faction consisting of four of the greatest warriors.

“In For Honor, wield your blade like never before with the innovative Art of Battle combat system that puts you in total control of your warrior. Master your sword and fight in brutal, fast-paced melee combat across an engaging story campaign and groundbreaking multiplayer modes.”

Alan Wake‘s official description reads: “When the wife of the best-selling writer Alan Wake disappears on their vacation, his search turns up pages from a thriller he doesn’t even remember writing. A Dark Presence stalks the small town of Bright Falls, pushing Wake to the brink of sanity in his fight to unravel the mystery and save his love.

“Presented in the style of a TV series, Alan Wake features the trademark Remedy storytelling and pulse-pounding action sequences. As players dive deeper and deeper into the mystery, they’ll face overwhelming odds, plot twists, and cliffhangers. It’s only by mastering the Fight With Light combat mechanic that they can stay one step ahead of the darkness that spreads across Bright Falls.”

Both titles will be available to download from the Epic Store, week commencing July 29th.
