The Messenger is now free to download from the Epic Games store.
Released in August 2018 and normally priced at £14.99, the PC version of Sabotage Studios’ action platformer has a Metascore of 83 on review aggregation site Metacritic.
It will be free to download until November 21, when it’ll be replaced by real-time strategy game Bad North.
Developed by Plausible Concept and published by Raw Fury, the PC version of Bad North has a Metascore of 75.
Epic originally launched a bi-monthly free game offer alongside its PC storefront in December 2018, but said in mid-May that it was increasing the frequency of the offer to one free game per week until the end of 2019.
Titles offered for free have included Alan Wake, For Honor, Limbo, This War of Mine, Overcooked, World of Goo, Transistor, The Witness, Hyper Light Drifter, Fez, Inside, Celeste, Metro 2033 Redux, Minit, Alan Wake’s American Nightmare and Observer.
The Epic Games store’s October update redesigned the storefront experience to simplify finding games on the site.
Upcoming features include enabling players to create wishlists which alert them when products they’ve tagged receive a price discount or promotion, and an updated library grid view.
Epic’s also working with OpenCritic to add critic reviews on its product pages.
