Sundered: Eldritch Edition will be the next free Epic Games Store title.
Developed by Jotun studio Thunder Lotus Games, “Sundered is a chaotic hand-drawn metroidvania where you resist or embrace ancient eldritch powers… in an ever-changing world inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft.”
The PC version of the game has a Metascore of 74 on review aggregation site Metacritic.
It will be available free on the Epic Games Store from 11am ET / 8am PT / 4pm UK on January 9.
This week’s free game was originally meant to be For The King, but its release on the Epic Games Store has been delayed.
