Epic Games Announced Free Game For December 19
We’re on the third day of the Epic Games New Year’s Eve free game campaign. Epic Games, which was slightly below expectations with the first two giveaways; aroused curiosity with the post it shared on Twitter last night.
Epic Games‘ new free game, which offers Cities: Skylines and Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty for free, is The Long Dark. The subject of the game is as follows:
The Long Dark is a survival game set in an open world environment and played from a first person perspective. The game takes place in the cold Canadian wilderness where the player takes on the role of a flight pilot fighting for survival after a global catastrophe (a geomagnetic storm). Cited by game developers as “survival simulation that explains many of the body temperature, calorie intake, hunger / thirst, fatigue, wind, chills, wildlife and other environmental factors.”
There are two different types of gameplay in the game, namely story mode and survival mode. During the alpha version of the game, players had access to the Sandbox (Survival) mode with the option to start in one of six regions; “Mysterious Lake”, “Beach Trail”, “Sweet Valley”, “Abandoned Lands” and “Mount Timberwolf”. Currently there are 10 regions in the game; “Mountain Town”, “Broken Railway”, “Calm River Valley” and “Gloomy Bay”. You can add the game to your Epic Games Store library from here.
