Last Chance To Get These Two Free PC Games

The Escapists doesn't take itself too seriously.

Comments

Epic continues to grow players' Epic Games Store library every week with free games, making it an enticing for users to keep logging into the store every week and maybe buy some new games to go along with their freebies. You're running out of time to get last week's free games, The Escapists and The Wolf Among Us, the latter of which recently had its sequel confirmed. To claim your copies, all you need is a free Epic Games Store account. The games are free until tomorrow, December 19 at 11 AM ET.

The Wolf Among Us unlocked for free during The Game Awards to celebrate the reveal of The Wolf Among Us 2. The sequel is in development at Telltale and AdHoc Studio, and some of the original Wolf Among Us developers are attached to the project.

The Escapists originally launched in 2015 to widespread acclaim. The pixelated sandbox game has 10 different prisons. In each run, your goal is the same: Escape. But escaping isn't a straightforward process. Avoiding the attention of guards is a must, so you have to blend into the day-to-day life of prison by following the rules, including working one of 10 prison jobs. As a sandbox game, you'll craft materials that can help you escape, including shovels and various weapons that must be hidden from guards.

Though The Escapists is set in a rather unpleasant place, it's pretty light-hearted. Both guards and inmates have humorous personalities and the general tone makes even failed escape attempts a good time.

If you enjoy what you play, an equally well-received sequel, The Escapists 2, launched in 2017. Make sure to claim both games by December 19.
