If you’re a gamer, or you just visitoccasionally, you may know that gives away a free game every week. Each Thursday brings a new surprise treat, with past weeks featuring gems like GTA 5, Rage 2, Hitman and Watch Dogs 2. This week, Epic is giving away a pair of games with a total retail value of $70: Alien: Isolation and Hand of Fate 2.
Continue the xenomorph adventure with Alien: Isolation. You play Amanda Ripley, Ripley’s (mostly) unseen daughter who basically only existed in a director’s cut scene from Aliens. As Amanda, you go hunting for mom and end up battling aliens. This atmospheric single-player adventure usually costs $40, and there are a handful of add-ons available if you find you love the game.
