Epic Games Store customers are counting down to the release of the next batch of free game downloads.
In a bid to combat Steam, Epic gives one or two games away for free each week, including GTA 5, Civilization 6 and Borderlands: The Handsome Collection.
It’s a ploy that appears to have worked, because the Epic Game Store has registered more than 60 million users.
The Epic Games Store free games giveaway continues with two new releases at 4pm BST on June 25.
This means customers only have a few hours left to download last week’s free game Pathway.
Turn-based strategy game Pathway will be replaced by AER Memories of Old and Stranger Things 3: The Game.
The Stranger Things video game spinoff only has a Metacritic score of 62%, although it does provide some nice fan service for viewers of the show.
It also supports co-op multiplayer, and features a distinct retro art style that’s pleasing on the eye.
“Stranger Things 3: The Game is the official companion game to Season 3 of the hit original series!” reads the official description.
“Play through familiar events from the series while also uncovering never-before-seen quests, character interactions, and secrets! This adventure game blends a distinctively retro art style with modern gameplay mechanics to deliver nostalgic fun with a fresh new twist.
“Just like in the show, teamwork is at the heart of Stranger Things 3: The Game.
“Fans can team up in two player local co-op to explore the world of Hawkins, solve puzzles, and battle the emerging evils of The Upside Down as one of twelve beloved characters from the show.”
AER Memories of Old, meanwhile, is an open-world adventure that takes place on land and in the air.
“Transform into a bird and fly to explore and experience a vibrant world of floating islands in the sky,” reads the official description.
“Venture down into lost ancient ruins where each step leads you closer to the end of the world.
“The gods of old are forgotten, lost in the events that shattered the world, leaving only fragments of islands in the sky. This mystic world of endless skies, colourful islands and ancient ruins is in danger of falling into darkness.
“As one of the last few shapeshifters, you are sent on a pilgrimage to the Land of Gods. Uncover the secrets that will help save reality itself.”
You can check it out for free when it joins the Epic Game Store free download list on June 25.
