Subset Games’ Into the Breach will be next week’s free Epic Games Store title.
“Control powerful mechs from the future to defeat an alien threat,” reads the product description for the game, which normally costs £10.99 on the Epic Games Store.
“Each attempt to save the world presents a new randomly generated challenge in this turn-based strategy game from the makers of FTL.”
The PC version of Into the Breach, which originally released in February 2018 (ahead of a Nintendo Switch version that August), has a Metascore of 90 on review aggregation site Metacritic, based on 56 reviews.
Into the Breach will replace Hitman (normally £49.99) and Shadowrun Collection (normally £39.99), which are now free to download until September 3 at 11am ET/8am PT/4pm BST.
The Epic Games Store’s free games promotion, which launched alongside the storefront in December 2018, will run throughout 2020.
A Total War Saga: Troy released exclusively via the Epic Games Store earlier this month and was free to download for its first 24 hours, during which time the offer was claimed by over 7.5 million players, according to publisher Sega.
It was recently announced that the PC version of Hitman 3 will be an Epic Games Store exclusive for one year, while the PC version of Crysis Remastered will also be exclusive to Epic’s storefront.
