Now Playing: Tactics Action Meets Tower-Defense Strategy In Bad North | E3 2018

While Bad North has just been added to the Epic Games Store's free games vault, the game made its way to Xbox Game Pass this September, alongside Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, Dirt Rally 2.0, and others.

November saw a smorgasbord of indie games offered through the Epic Games Store. At the start of the month, the company put Nuclear Throne and Ruiner up for grabs until November 14. Following that, the Metroid-inspired The Messenger was available to download until November 21. Bad North is the company's latest free game, which will be replaced by Rayman Legends come the end of the month.
