Get One Of 2016's Best Games Completely Free This Week

The excellent XCOM 2 is completely free to download and keep this week. The outstanding sci-fi strategy game will be available for all PC users in just a few days for the low, low price of nothing at all.

From April 14 to April 21, anyone with an Epic Games Store account and a PC will be able to download and add XCOM 2 to their library, at which point they can download and play it at any time.

Developed by Firaxis Games and originally released back in 2016, XCOM 2 is the follow up to 2012's XCOM: Enemy Unknown, itself a reboot of the long-running franchise. XCOM 2's expertly designed levels and butt-clenchingly tense battles made it one of the best games of the year, and I urge you to check it out and see what all the fuss is about. Frankly it's criminal we haven't had a sequel yet.

"Earth has changed. Twenty years have passed since world leaders offered an unconditional surrender to alien forces," reads the game's official description. "XCOM, the planet's last line of defense, was left decimated and scattered. Now, in XCOM 2, the aliens rule Earth, building shining cities that promise a brilliant future for humanity on the surface, while concealing a sinister agenda and eliminating all who dissent from their new order."

Interestingly, April 14 will also mark XCOM 2's debut on Epic's storefront, having previously only been available on PC via Steam.

If critically acclaimed strategy games aren't your cup of tea, April 14's free games also include the really rather wonderful mountain-climbing rougelike Insurmountable, in which players must climb to the top of a procedurally generated mountain and deal with the hundreds of random events that can occur along the climb.
