Epic Games Store's New Free Game Is Now Available

As it is Thursday once again, that means that there's a new free game rotation available in the Epic Games Store. This week sees The Messenger and its DLC, The Messenger - Picnic Panic, free on the digital storefront, and while it's just the one game (and DLC) this time around, the much-lauded The Messenger is absolutely a get regardless.

The usual caveats apply here, of course. The game is limited to Epic Games Store, which means you're only going to be able to play it on PC. It's also only available for free for a week, ending November 21st, so interested folks should pick it up before then. Otherwise, though? Free as free can be.

Here's how the Epic Games Store describes The Messenger:

"As a demon army besieges his village, a young ninja ventures through a cursed world, to deliver a scroll paramount to his clan’s survival. What begins as a classic action platformer soon unravels into an expansive time-traveling adventure full of thrills, surprises, and humor."
