KEY POINTS

  • Three new free games are available via the Epic Game Store until April 22
  • "Deponia: The Complete Journey" offers a different kind of adventure
  • "Ken Follet's The Pillars of Earth" and “The First Tree” are also interesting titles

It is about that time of the month once more when Epic Games announces the free games it has on tap. And from this week until April 22, there are three game varieties that video gamers can choose from. They are “Deponia: The Complete Journey,” “Ken Follet's The Pillars of Earth” and “The First Tree.”

Like before, all the games can be claimed by Epic Game Store members. Players don’t have to immediately install them upon purchase. But the thing here is that if they do decide to try them out, they can do so with no additional cost.

The latest free games from the Epic Game Store may not be among the top-tier games that players would immediately recognize. But for the ones who want to give these titles a shot, they are all of a different variety.

Like in the case of “The First Tree,” gamers can relax and enjoy the game without opponents as it is backed by good visuals. But for those who want to experience some more challenging gameplay, “Ken Follet’s The Pillars of Earth” could be worth considering.

The game, based on the critically-acclaimed novel, gives players a chance to alter storylines. It is set in the 12th century England in a time of poverty and war. It is a battle for survival with lives and destinies intertwining as a small town begins construction on a cathedral to claim wealth and security.

“Deponio: The Complete Journey” is probably something that gamers looking to spend long hours playing will love to check out. It comes with a mix of adventure and puzzle elements with a touch of comedy.

It touches on the story of Rufus who attempts to leave the trash planet. He falls in love with a beautiful girl named Goal but accidentally shoves her right off her comfortable star cruiser and down to the desolate trash planet. This forces him to go back to the planet and get Goal back, but the task will not be easy.

Again, all these games will be available until April 22. On that same day, the new games coming to the Epic Games Store are “Alien: Isolation” and “Hand of Fate 2,” two more interesting titles that members may want to consider getting – for free.
