Say what you will about Epic Games Store, but they love giving us free games. And we love them for it.
This week’s free titles on Epic Games Store are Faeria, and Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. Faeria is a strategy card game with a living board, beautiful artwork and challenging battles. Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is 2015’s entry to Ubisoft’s franchise that puts you in the shoes of London-dwelling Jacob and Evie Frye.
Faeria has proved to be quite popular among critics, scoring an impressive 81 on Metacritic. If you’re into card games, it looks like a fun one to try, promising to be the “only card game where you can gain all 300 cards in less than 50 hours”. Uh, challenge accepted.
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, on the other hand, is divisive – as is much of the Creed franchise – but it happens to be one of our favourites. Victorian London is a fantastic playground; Jacob and Evie are compelling protagonists; and the series’ signature gameplay loop has never been more engaging.
The bottom line? They’re both free, so even if you’re on the fence you can give ’em a download and try them. You never know; you might love them. As always, there’s no catch with Epic Games Store’s free games. You simply need to have an account, so sign in and add them to your library.
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate and Faeria are available to download right now, and will remain available until 4pm GMT next Thursday, February 27. Next week, Inner Space will be given away for free.
