Epic Games Store: Free Games (28th May – 4th June 2020)
You’re in for a treat this week on the Epic Games Store, this offering features not just one, but two full games! There’s also a nice bonus game available for free over the next year. Let’s have a look:
Borderlands: The Handsome Collection
Borderlands: The Handsome Collection contains both Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel games. This collection was released in 2015 by Gearbox Software, bringing the games over to the current generation of console. (Borderlands 2 from 2012 and Pre-Sequel from 2014, were released on PS3 / Xbox 360 originally)
The Borderlands series is an Action RPG and first-person looter shooter, and is one of defining games of the genre, alongside Destiny and The Division. Think quests, weapon upgrades and lots of grinding to level up. Borderlands, with its Space Western setting, doesn’t take itself too seriously and features plenty of wacky characters and enemies. The Handsome Collection contains hundreds of hours worth of gameplay including all the DLC included with the games.
Unfortunately the collection doesn’t contain the original Borderlands game, which is a shame since it’s a brilliant loot shooter also. The most recent entry in the series, Borderlands 3, was released in 2019, with a port to Nintendo Switch in May 2020.
Also, an extra free game has just been announced on the Epic Games Store – Sludge Life, published by Devolver Digital, which is free to download for the next year (until 28th May 2021) so grab this one also!
Sludge Life is described as a “first-person / open-world / vandalism-centric stroll through a polluted island full of cranky idiots and a vibe so thick you can taste it.” Sounds worth a shot anyway!
The current free game can be found at the Epic Games Store.
