The Epic Games Store updated its free games selection to include a surprise horror game while confirming the free games users will be able to claim on October 20. Epic Games Store users can log into the store now to grab two more games for their digital libraries and take note of what to expect later this month.
When the latest Epic Games Store free games were first announced, the only title mentioned was ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove. However, Epic Games Store has surprised users with the addition of a horror game to accompany Toe Jam & Earl. dark wood is a top-down survival horror game where players scavenge resources during the day and fend off gruesome monstrosities at night. dark wood reviews were mostly positive at the time of its release, so it should be a solid horror addition to the EGS lineup of free games.
In addition to adding dark wood and ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove As new free games, the Epic Games Store also told fans what to expect from next week’s deals. From October 20 to 27, Epic Games Store users will be able to claim Evoland Legendary Edition and Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition for their collections.
Epic Games Store Free Games List for October 2022
- Darkwood (October 13 – October 20)
- ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove (October 13 – October 20)
- Evoland Legendary Edition (October 20 – October 27)
- Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition (October 20 – October 27)
Evoland Legendary Edition is an RPG collection that combines the first two Evoland games in one package. Evoland received mixed reviews upon release, but the games were praised for their relatively short length compared to most games in the genre, which can sometimes be oversized and stuffed with filler.
Fallout 3, meanwhile, really needs no introduction. Bethesda’s award-winning and critically acclaimed action-RPG has breathed new life into the post-apocalyptic franchise. Fallout 3 is generally regarded as one of the best video games of all time, and so even though it’s over a decade old at this point, its inclusion as a free Epic Games Store game should still please users of the service. Even better, the version of Fallout 3 which is made free is the Game of the Year Editionmeaning it comes bundled with all of the game’s post-launch expansion packs.
