Epic Games Store’s next free game will be sci-fi puzzler The Fall, developed by Over The Moon. The 100% discount will be available from March 18 until March 25.
The Fall replaces Surviving Mars, which will be discounted until March 18 at 11:00am.
“Acclaimed story, engaging puzzles, tense action. You are ARID, the AI onboard a mark-7 combat suit,” reads The Fall’s description on the Epic Games Store. “The human pilot encased within the suit is unconscious. You must find a way to follow protocol and save his life.”
Although The Fall isn’t a new game – it released way back in 2014 – it did garner some impressive reviews at launch. It features a unique story and interesting gameplay mechanics that make it feel like you’re working your way through a sci-fi horror movie. Over on Steam, The Fall has more than 2,500 reviews, of which the majority are “Very Positive.”
The Epic Games Store has made some impressive games available for free over the past year, including GTA 5 and Rage 2. The Fall isn’t likely to crash servers in the way Grand Theft Auto did, but it’s still a great indie game to kill some time while you wait for bigger releases in the coming months.
The Fall will be available on the Epic Games Store for free on March 18.
