Next week Cyberpunk 2077 arrives, but not everyone has the extra money to burn. December can be rough for a lot of people with all those holiday expenses racking up quickly, and 2020 has been tough on many pockets. So if you aren’t heading to 2077 next week, but have a hankering for an RPG, Epic’s free games for the week look like pretty solid alternatives.
Pillars of Eternity Definitive Edition and Tyranny Gold Edition go free on Epic starting on December 10. Even if you are heading into Night City to spend time with Johnny Silverhand, you can add them to your library for later.
Both of these games require a fair amount of reading to get the best out of them, but they are pretty solid RPGs, with one even let you explore your darker side by playing the part of the big bad’s henchman, and working out how you will maneouver between evil and good and opporunistic colleagues.
Or if next week is way too far off, you can grab Cave Story+ for free, which will have you exploring caves and discovering who you are.
