Includes the base game and free Magnate of the Gong update.
Fresh off of the triple whammy served in last week’s free games, the Epic Games Store has announced its next free title. It’s Thunder Lotus Games’ Sundered: Eldritch Edition and it goes live on January 9th. If you haven’t claimed Darksiders: Warmastered Edition, Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition and Steep yet, now is the best time.
Sundered is a Metroidvania title with randomized areas and a gorgeous animated art-style. Players control Eshe who is trapped in a strange labyrinth filled with nightmarish monsters. Even as she harnesses different Eldritch artifacts to become stronger, there’s a sinister presence that’s seemingly taking over her soul.
Those picking up the Eldritch Edition will also avail of free local co-op multiplayer, new areas and a new boss fight. Sundered might not quite compare to the likes of Hollow Knight or Axiom Verge in terms of overall story-telling. However, it’s still a compelling, action-packed adventure with incredible scale that’s worth checking out when it goes free this Friday.
