Epic Games Store's New Free Games Are Now Available

It's Thursday, and that means there's some new free games to grab over at the Epic Games Store. For the past while, the digital storefront has been offering free games every week, sometimes one, sometimes time, and in one instance up to six. This week sees two new games -- SOMA and Costume Quest -- join the long line of freebies.

If you're particular about your digital games, however, there's just one catch. These are directly associated with an Epic Games account, and are exclusive to the Epic Games Store. If, say, Steam is your digital PC platform of choice, you're out of luck, but still: free is free.

Here's how the Epic Games Store describes SOMA:

"SOMA is a sci-fi horror game from Frictional Games, the creators of Amnesia: The Dark Descent. It is an unsettling story about identity, consciousness, and what it means to be human."

How's how the Epic Games Store describes Costume Quest:

"Costume Quest is a Halloween adventure from Tim Schafer's Double Fine Productions. In this charming role-playing game, choose your hero and trick-or-treat through three beautiful environments full of Double Fine humor and story."
