The Epic Games Store is currently offering not one, not two, but three free games for PC gamers to add to their growing libraries at no cost. They comprise Jotun: Valhalla Edition, a Viking game with hand-drawn art from Thunder Lotus; Redout: Enhanced Edition, an anti-gravity racing game that looks perfect for Wipeout fans; and Prey, Arkane Studios’ critically acclaimed FPS that feels very much like a sci-fi version of BioShock. All of these titles are free to grab until Thursday, May 19, at 11:00 a.m. (EST). The Epic Games Store’s next freebie is a mystery title that won’t be unveiled until next week.

Prey

The space station has been overrun by hostile aliens and you are now being hunted. As you dig into the dark secrets of Talos I and your own past, you must survive using the tools found on the station — your wits, weapons, and mind-bending abilities. The fate of the Talos I and everyone aboard is in your hands.

Jotun: Valhalla Edition

Jotun is a hand-drawn action-exploration game set in Norse mythology. In Jotun, you play Thora, a Viking warrior who died an inglorious death and must prove herself to the Gods to enter Valhalla. Impress the Gods!

Redout: Enhanced Edition

NEXT GENERATION AG RACING IS HERE! Redout is a tribute to the classic racing monsters. It is designed to be an uncompromising, fast, tough and satisfying driving experience, soaked in that vertigo that stands at the core of the arcade racing genre.

  1. Yeah, I wasn't impressed with Prey either. I really wanted to like it. It checked a lot of boxes for me but after a bit, I felt like I was back playing Dead Space 3, backtracking to every door or section that I passed before plus a little more outside the station stuff. I tried to get into it, multiple times, but never did. I tried again just last month, and I even bought the game at release, but still couldn't get into it.

    I'm not saying the game is horrible, just that I never got engaged with it. I felt the same way with Control which I bought at a discount, at least, about a year after release. Pretty much feel the same about both games. The only other game that's happened to me, more recently, is Death Stranding. That's another I really wanted to like but about 4-6 hours into it I just wasn't having that much fun and the grind got really boring.

    Jotun looks interesting though. I might grab that.
  2. I grabbed Redout EE the other day when I saw it for free. It plays very well on my laptop, meaning the GPU requirements aren't that high.

    BUT the game is buggy and crashes a lot. Unknown if this is the Extreme Edition additions, or integration into EGS. But it crashed to desktop on me after every other race with generic errors. I googled and reddit says same thing. Supposedly the devs are working on it.

    It's good enough to scratch my Wipeout itch and a plus it runs good on my laptop.

    Prey.... I think I now have this on Steam and Epic and Playstation. I have tried to get into it and it just doesn't grab me.
