The Epic Games Store is continuing its promise of offering free games to users of its store. This time around it’s Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, and >observer_ which are up for grabs.
Alan Wake’s American Nightmare is a standalone DLC that was released in 2012, following the popularity of the 2010 cult hit action-adventure game “Alan Wake”. Developed by Remedy Entertainment, it received somewhat favourable reviews at the time, in-line with that of the original game, although as the years progressed it has become somewhat of a cult classic. Alan Wake was offered as a free game by Epic back at the beginning of August. If you picked it up at the time, then this week’s offering will serve as a perfect companion.
The second game offered by Epic is >observer_. It’s a cyberpunk horror game developed by Bloober Team, the same team behind the ‘Layers of Fear’ franchise. The game, released in 2017, garnered a favourable response from both critics and fans.
Both Alan Wake’s American Nightmare and >observer_ fit comfortably into the horror genre, and as Halloween is rapidly approaching, there is no better time to get into these games.
Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, and >observer_ will be available for free until the 24th of October. Epic have also confirmed which games will be available from the 24th onwards – Layers of Fear: Masterpiece Edition, and Q.U.B.E.2 will be next. You have until the 24th of October to pick the current offerings. Once purchased, they will be in your library forever, so don’t worry about needing to complete them in a week.
