Next week’s Epic free games will take you to ‘Nam
It’s new Free Games Day on the Epic Games Store, which not only means you can pick up a terrific Warhammer 40K tactics game for free, but you also get a preview of what’s on deck for next week. . For the week starting November 3, the Epic Store free PC games will be military FPS game Rising Storm 2: Vietnam and sci-fi puzzle game Filament.
Rising Storm 2: Vietnam is Tripwire’s sequel to Rising Storm, a standalone expansion for Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad that the studio created with help from the Red Orchestra modding community. The first Rising Storm shifted the action from the Eastern Front of WWII to the Pacific theatre, and Rising Storm 2: Vietnam – as its name suggests – explores that area again, but moving forward in time until to the Vietnam War.
It’s in the style of classics of the genre: big 64-player battles using era-specific weapons and vehicles. Forces include the North Vietnamese Army and the National Liberation Front against the United States Army, Marine Corps, Australian Army, and the Army of the Republic of Vietnam.
This one might already be in your Epic library – Rising Storm 2: Vietnam was also one of Epic’s free games in October 2020.
Filament is also free next week, an indie sci-fi themed puzzle game. Here, you’ll have to solve wire-based puzzles by physically threading a wire around the contact pegs – reportedly very difficult and includes a charming story to weave it all together.
