Epic Games Store free games: “Faeria” and “Assassin’s Creed Syndicate”

Epic Games Store‘s newest free games are Abrakam‘s, Versus Evil‘s fantasy card-battling game Faeria and Ubisoft‘s action-adventure Assassin’s Creed Syndicate.

How these two games were chosen remains a mystery to me, as they’re different in both tone and gameplay, but maybe the reason was to offer something for indie and AAA fans. Be this as it may, Faeria is an interesting take on the card-building formula, mixing Magic: The Gathering battles and boardgame Catan‘s building mechanics. So one doesn’t simply collect various cards, but also changes the battlefield by deciding if it’s made up of mountains, forests, or lakes, for example. Although it’s clearly aimed at multiplayer with its many co-op missions, there’s enough content, including puzzles, for single-player, too.

The Assassin’s Creed series certainly needs no introduction, as its mix of history and sci-fi has become a mainstay in the gaming landscape. This time, the Industrial Revolution in London becomes the centerstage of where all the assassinations take place. Of course the gameplay still involves the same sneak, kill, and escape procedure, but with technological advances, this seems to feel a bit differently in setting, and as the bug-riddled first release is a thing of the past, it should be smoother to play, too.

The games can be added for free to the Epic Games library until February 27, 2020, at 5:00 PM.
