Epic has announced the next batch of free games that will be available for users to download and keep via the Epic Games Store next week, and they're a couple of bangers.
Starting Thursday July 22 at 4pm BST, you'll be able to get your hands on the critically acclaimed tower-defense game Grid: The Awakening, alongside the gritty and brutal World War I shooter Verdun. As is always the case, these titles will be free via the usual promotion page for a whole week before they're replaced by the next pair of games, so mark your calendars!
Take a look at Verdun in all its gory glory below:
"Merciless trench warfare immerses you and your squad in intense battles of attack and defense," reads the Epic Games Store description for Verdun. Promising, no? "Verdun is the first multiplayer FPS set in an authentic World War One setting offering a rarely seen battlefield experience.
"Verdun is the first multiplayer FPS set in a realistic World War One setting, and is the game which started the WW1 Game series. The vicious close quarters nature of trench warfare means that skill with a bayonet can be as vital as good aim with a rifle."
Meanwhile, Defense Grid: The Awakening is described as "the ultimate tower defense game that appeals to players of all skill levels. A horde of enemies is invading, and it's up to the player to stop them by strategically building defensive towers around their base."
Two very different games next week then, but both with something in common: They're fantastic.
Don't forget that this means you have until July 22 to download this week's games: Obduction (a sort of spiritual successor to PC classic Myst), and sci-fi tinged RTS Offworld Trading Company. Don't miss out.
