Don’t miss out on picking up Remnant: From the Ashes for free

Lotta Epic news today

Epic giving away two solid games as part of its ongoing weekly promotion of freebies is somehow only the third most important Epic news of the day. Tim Sweeney and crew are going to war with Apple over the way it handles payment processing. Less heavy, Creative Assembly’s A Total War Saga: Troy is free today (and today only) as part of a bonkers launch day offering.

Don’t let all that completely distract you from this week’s free Epic titles, though. Remnant: From the Ashes is free until next Thursday, and that should help scratch the Souls-like itch for a little while. It’s more than just a spin on the From formula. Remnant: From the Ashes is also a looter shooter from the modern-day Darksiders developer Gunfire Games. It’s a weird game but Chris says it’s one that’s worth checking out.

Accompanying Remnant is The Alto Collection — made up of Alto’s Adventure and Alto’s Odyssey — which is a beautiful and chill-looking side-scrolling snowboarding game. It’s a duo that was originally developed for mobile, but has been repackaged together on PC and consoles. It seems like the type of thing that’ll help take the edge off.

Next week, however, is all edges again. Epic is serving up two hectic roguelikes, Enter the Gungeon and God’s Trigger. Prepare for frustration over and over again.
