Epic Games Store free games: “Defense Grid: The Awakening” and “Verdun”

Epic Games Store‘s new free games are Hidden Path Entertainment‘s sci-fi tower defense strategy game Defense Grid: The Awakening and M2H/Blackmill Games WWI multiplayer FPS Verdun.

Defense Grid: The Awakening seems to have become a regular freebie, as it was already available in that form on the store in December 2020.

Being part RTS and part tower defense game, the explosive presentation still helps to make the title look less dated than other examples of the genre, and it should be as much fun to play as when it was released in 2008.

Verdun takes inspiration from the titular battle on the Western Front in 1916 and makes players experience the horrors of WWI from 1914-1918, resulting in (mostly) historical accuracy.

Being a multiplayer title, there are obviously many modes to choose from and with 64 players, it could be a rather unsettling interactive presentation of the past, but that’s probably the ultimate goal of the genre.

Both games can now be added to the Epic Games Store account for free until July 29, 2021, at 5:00 PM.
