The Epic Games Store’s latest free titles are Verdun and Defense Grid: The Awakening. Developed by M2H & Blackmill Games, Verdun is an action shooter set in World War I that places players in the trenches of the Great War with intense squad battles, while Hidden Path Entertainment’s Defense Grid: The Awakening should be of interest to strategy game fans seeking a tower defense title with a sci-fi theme. Both games will be available for free until July 29 at 11:00 a.m. EST. The Epic Games Store has also launched its latest summer sale today, allowing users to save up to 75 percent on select titles. Among those is IO Interactive’s Hitman 3, which has received a generous discount of 50 percent, taking the stealth title down to $29.99.


This first-person shooter will transport you into the merciless trench warfare on the Western Front of World War 1. This game is about as immersive and authentic as you can get, featuring historically accurate weaponry, uniforms, and maps based on the real battlefields of the first world war.

Defense Grid: The Awakening

Take the battle to space instead with the ultimate tower defense game. Strategically build up fortification towers around your base and defend the cores from hordes of invading enemies!
