If there’s one thing we like, it’s a free game. And there’s only one thing better than a free game: a free game that’s bloody good. Enter Ghostrunner, which is currently free to keep on the Epic Games Store.

A strange mix between Mirror’s Edge and Hotline Miami, we called it one of the most “action-packed and exciting” games of the year when we reviewed Ghostrunner back in 2020. It may have been superseded by its bigger and more ambitious sequel, but we still love Ghostrunner — and there’s still nothing else really like it.

Equipped with superhuman reflexes, Ghostrunner tasks you to dodge bullets, wall-run and more in what is an epic and fast-paced series of challenges. It’s tricky, but when you pull off everything that this game asks of you, you really do feel like a ninja badass. It helps that it looks so stylish, too — and has a fantastic soundtrack to boot.

The best thing? It’s completely free. All you need is an Epic Games account, and you can claim Ghostrunner on PC to keep for good. You don’t even need to input any payment details.

Go claim Ghostrunner before it’s too late: you’ve got until next Thursday, 18th April at 4pm.
