Rage 2 is ripe for a revisit now that it's free on the Epic Store


Tensions have cooled

The Epic Games Store has two free PC games lined up this week: Rage 2 and Absolute Drift. You can swing back and forth between all-out apocalyptic chaos to the chillest of chill score-chasing.

Here's a refresher on both games while you mull over logging in to claim them.

You have until Thursday, February 25 at 8:00 am Pacific to add the games to your library.

In my head, Rage 2 seems like it's been around for a long time, but 2019 wasn't that long ago – it just feels like it. Back then, I figured I'd enjoy it as someone who digs Far Cry, Borderlands, Doom, and Mad Max, but it wasn't something I was in the mood to play, even with ridiculous gunplay and abilities.

Getting it for free helps – as does Chris' one-liner about it being "screw around: the game."

As for Absolute Drift, it seems like a zen experience for the right type of person. I'm not sure I'm the guy, but I got a chuckle out of "Driftkhana" and the soundtrack is dope. There's free-roaming, if you're down.

Next week's Epic Store giveaway is Sunless Sea, a deep, dark, wordy adventure. Check back Feb. 25.
