Epic Games Store Reveals Its Next Pair of Free Games

The Epic Games Store has revealed the next batch of free games for the digital storefront! The platform has been giving away free games for months now, and every Thursday, a new batch is revealed. This latest round includes two games, Nuclear Throne and RUINER.

As usual, the two games will be available for free via the Epic Games Store beginning next Thursday, November 7th, through the following Thursday, November 14th. It's unclear at this point what might come next, but as the promotion goes on, one assumes that things will truly conclude with a bang when they do.

Here's how the Epic Games Store describes Nuclear Throne:

"Nuclear Throne is a post-apocalyptic roguelike-like top-down shooter. Not 'the final hope of humanity' post-apocalyptic, but 'humanity is extinct and mutants and monsters now roam the world' post-apocalyptic. Fight your way through the wastelands with powerful weaponry, collecting radiation to mutate some new limbs and abilities. All these things and more you could do if only you were good at this game. Can you reach the Nuclear Throne?"

How's how the Epic Games Store describes RUINER:

"RUINER is a brutal action shooter set in the year 2091 in the cyber metropolis Rengkok. A wired psychopath lashes out against a corrupt system to uncover the truth and retrieve his kidnapped brother under the guidance of a secretive hacker friend."
