Epic Games Store is releasing its two free games for the week of September 22 – September 29, revealing what they will replace next Thursday.
Epic Games Store publishes its September 2022 roster and reveals the freebies coming next week. As most users know, Epic Games Store rotates its free game selection every Thursday at 10 a.m. CT. While there are regular secret, surprise releases every year, the release of new games often accompanies the announcement of the next week’s games, which is a great way to keep the focus on the service.
Epic Games Store users can now claim Ark: Survival Evolved and gloomhaven, the former being a dinosaur survival sandbox game and the latter a dungeon crawling adaptation of the popular board game. In both games, players invest hundreds of hours exploring all of the content, so if these games are free, there’s really no arguing about that. Both games are easy to recommend, but should anyone want to pass them on or just throw them in their backlog, they should be aware that there’s more to come on Sept. 29 at 10 a.m. CT.
The Drone Racing League Simulator and runbow will be free on the Epic Games Store from September 29 to October 6, after which they will be replaced by another game (or games). The Drone Racing League Simulator puts players in the field of view of a drone and focuses on high-intensity racing based on tracks from the real-life Drone Racing League. This simulator also reportedly has the benefit of helping players understand how racing drones work in the real world, but it also brings in some game-y zaniness, some crashes and wrecks, and more.
For example, it features a Search and Destroy game mode, which every gamer should be familiar with. At the same time, it features an onboarding mode that guides players through progress missions that not only train them in the game, but also match professional sets used by real pilots.
runbow, meanwhile, is a platformer racer that includes as many game modes like Run, Arena, and King of the Hill as any traditional racing game. There’s even a single-player campaign with over 140 levels. All in all, it supports 9 players locally or online, features 19 guest characters, and tons and tons of content. It seems that the two games are united by a theme of racing, but they are not traditional racers either.
Epic Games Store users get a handful of free games every month.
