The Epic Games Store’s next free titles have been revealed.
The Evil Within and Eternal Threads will be free to claim on Epic’s PC marketplace from October 19-26.
According to its Epic Games Store listing, “Eternal Threads is a single-player, first-person story-driven puzzle game of time manipulation, choice and consequence,” from developer Cosmonaut Studios and publisher Secret Mode.
The Evil Within and Eternal Threads will replace Blazing Sails and Q.U.B.E. Ultimate Bundle, which are now free to claim until October 19.
The former is billed as “a fast-paced pirate PvP game”, while the latter is a collection of first-person titles in which players manipulate cubes to solve puzzles.
Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney said in March that players should expect to see further high-profile Epic Games Store exclusives in the future.
And in August the Fortnite maker announced a new Epic Games Store exclusivity scheme.
The Epic First Run programme allows developers of any size to claim 100% of revenue if they agree to make their game exclusive on the Epic Games Store for six months.
Last month, Epic announced plans to lay off around 830 employees, or 16% of its total workforce.
It will be increasing the price of Fortnite V-Bucks and some real money content packs later this month, and will start charging for the use of Unreal Engine outside of video game development next year.
