As per schedule, the Epic Games Store has released the new free games for November 3rd and what games will become accessible after them on November 10th. If you use the company’s store at all, you’re likely familiar with what’s happening, as every Thursday at 10 am CT/EGS, the store releases new free games and announces the next ones.
This means that the first Epic Games Store free games for November 2022, Filament and Rising Storm 2: Vietnam, are now available to pick up. The first is an indie strategic puzzle game where players must solve the mystery of the disappearance of a crew aboard a ship known as The Alabaster. The second is a shooter focused on precision and brutal realism. Both are pretty simple recommendations, so it would be worth trying them out. However, if some players are unhappy with these, they already know what to expect on November 10th.
From November 10th to November 17th, the Epic Games Store will give away Alba: A Wildlife Adventure and Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun. Alba is described as a “Chillectathon” and a casual adventure where players must find the AIWRL, an organization that can help save the island. The game features hand-crafted visuals, different types of animals, great music, and a relaxing atmosphere.
The next free game is Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun, which describes itself as a “hardcore tactical stealth game.” The game’s story centers on a new shogun in Japan trying to instill peace. He recruits five playable specialists with unique skill sets to fulfill this mission. At the same time, the game features several seemingly impossible encounters where players must find unique ways to take down opponents and attack from all angles. Three difficulty levels exist for those who want to dial back or increase their difficulty.
The upcoming holiday season is the most exciting for Epic Games Store users. The Epic Games Store usually gives away a selection of free mystery games for several days in a row, with 15 games given away last year. These ranged from massive AAA games like Control to smaller but beloved indie titles. Either way, with the holidays coming up, it will be an exciting time for gamers on pretty much every platform.
