Rebel Galaxy is yet another Epic Games freebie that somehow found its way into my library before, but that I didn’t cover in an article. I did discuss its sequel (Rebel Galaxy) in this GOG release news, though. One takes control of a star destroyer (rather similar to the intimidating spaceship from Star Wars, although the concept is sold more like a lighthearted Han Solo experience) and choosing one’s path as either a space trader, privateer, or hero of the galaxy. Combat and exploration probably make this the closest one can come to in a true Wing Commander or Star Wars experience that is sorely lacking in today’s market.
The game can be added to the Epic Games Store account for free until August 19, 2021, at 5:00 PM.
