Epic Games Store drops three more games for free

Epic Games hasn’t stopped celebrating even though its 12 days of free games deal has ended. Today, the company is giving away three more games on the Epic Games Store. And they aren’t indies, this time! Also, you don’t have to scramble to get these games today, as they’re free until January 9. Head on over to the store if you don’t have Darksiders Warmastered Edition, Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition, or Steep in your collection.

Sadly, I already have two of these games for Steam — but that shouldn’t stop anyone who doesn’t have them yet. Both the first two Darksiders games were released to quite some fanfare, after all. Following in the footsteps of two of the horsemen of the apocalypse, War and Death, the games each offered their own distinct play styles despite being in the same franchise. The first game, Darksiders, blended God of War-style action with Metroidvania, similar to the Legend of Zelda games. Its sequel was more of a looter-slasher ARPG sort of like Diablo and its kin, but without the overhead camera.

Not a Steep price

The third game is Ubisoft’s Steep, the open-world snowboarding game. I don’t know as much about Steep as I do Darksiders. However, I do know that it’s one of the better received snowboarding games as of late. In Steep, you tackle the massive Alps, boarding and weaving through its many slopes. You can fly over a lot of the land via a wingsuit, recording sick stunts and sharing it with the community. Also, the game is multiplayer, so you don’t have to tackle the powder alone.

Getting the three games is an easy matter. All you need to do is head to the Epic Games Store and scroll down a tad. There, where it says Free Games (if it wasn’t obvious enough), you’ll find your quarry. And, as I mentioned, you don’t need to hurry on over today. Unlike the 12 free games offer in December, these games will be available until January 9.
