The Epic free games are ARK: Survival Evolved and seven classic Samurai Shodowns


Survival of the freest

If the Bangles cared more about video games, they'd probably be singing "It's just another Free Game Thursday." It beats the hell out of Monday.

Epic's new round of free video games has an underlying theme of survival. In one, you survive getting eaten by giant hungry dinosaurs. In the other, you survive your opponent's attempts to punch your face through your face. 

ARK: Survival Evolved and Samurai Shodown NeoGeo Collection are both free on the Epic Games Store until the morning of June 18. The Samurai Shodown bundle includes six classic games, and a previously-unreleased "mysterious final version" of Samurai Shodown V Special that's called V Perfect. This is also the debut of Samurai Shodown NeoGeo Collection; it'll be available on Steam next week for $40, followed by PS4 and Switch in late July.

Next week, it's Chucklefish's turn-based strategy roguelike Pathway, and Shawshank simulator The Escapists 2.
