Now Playing: What Remains Of Edith Finch - Launch Trailer

Epic Games is giving away a free PC game every two weeks this year via its new Store, and the next of those free titles has now been revealed. What Remains of Edith Finch, one of 2017's best games, will be available free of charge from January 10 until January 25.

All you need to do is create an Epic account on its Store and claim the game within those dates. You'll then be able to play the game for free whenever you like, even after January 25. Currently, the free game on offer is Super Meat Boy, which is free until What Remains of Edith Finch takes over on January 10.

Edith Finch is a relatively short adventure game about a girl whose family have all suddenly died under mysterious circumstances. Playing from Edith's perspective, you explore the family home to discover more about the events leading to each person's death.

Our reviewer, Justin Clark, enjoyed the narrative-driven game immensely, awarding it a 9/10. "It's not often that a game's plot slips past the bitterness of grief to finally get to the acceptance, but that's the triumph in What Remains of Edith Finch," he wrote of the PS4 version in our What Remains of Edith Finch review. "Ultimately, if the game has any resemblance of a moral, it's that the bravest, most beautiful thing every one of us does is choose to keep going, despite knowing what's coming."

One of the best games because the game plays itself to tell you it's story right? Just another shitty walking simulator.

Epic just fell into the "give out shovelware for free" trap. At least it's not tied to a gold service this time.

well for their store space to be worth even glancing at they need to start getting new titles on their release date, not pay devs for yearly exclusives deals on games that where allrdy coming out on other stores. i don't mind having another small store app if they actually offer a severs i want, or at this time can even use. at this time im seeing this thing as dead in the water, ill rather wait a year to get those games on steam or GoG, rather then risk buying it on a service that may not do anything more in said year.

Still not enough to tempt me to start an account on yet another DD Website, much less download yet another client.

C'mon Epic, you can do better. Try Bulletstorm or Shadow Complex Remastered.

@Blk_Mage_Ctype: They've already given "Shadow Complex Remastered" away on the Epic Store.

Loved this game. I’ll still occasionally start it up and revisit certain chapters. (Oddly enough for a narrative game, it’s also one of the best uses of licensed music I’ve encountered.)
