With the Epic Games Store’s daily free game offerings having officially concluded with the end of the year, the digital storefront has now returned to free games being offered on a weekly basis. Following on from last week’s offering of Jurassic World Evolution, those with an Epic account can now get their hands on the tactical rogue-lite Crying Suns.
Available from now until the 14th of January at 4pm, Crying Suns is a tactical rogue-lite which “puts you in the role of a space fleet commander as you explore a mysteriously fallen empire” with each new run seeing you slowly “uncover the truth about the Empire… and yourself as well.”
The game received a consistent and positive reception from both critics and players alike, with particular praise being given to the game’s story and soundtrack.
With “space exploration in a procedurally-generated universe;” “tactical fights between battleships and their squadron fleets;” “more than 300 possible story events;” “a deep and dramatic storyline structured in 6 chapters” and “a dark and disturbing atmosphere inspired by our favorite S-F universes (Foundation, Dune, Battlestar Galactica)”, Crying Suns knows its genre and position well.
If you have recently finished playing Hades and are looking to scratch that rogue-lite itch, Crying Suns may serve as a suitable replacement. Crying Suns is available to download for free from now until the 14th of January at which point it will be replaced by EA’s Star Wars Battlefront II.
