If you didn’t get For the King and Metro: Last Light Redux for free from the Epic Games Store, is that it’s too late now—they’re gone. But he awesome news, however, is that there’s a new freebie that you can get instead, Halcyon 6: Lightspeed Edition, a “massively enhanced” version of the 2016 sci-fi strategy-RPG.
The game takes place on a derelict space station found at the edge of known space, left behind by some mysterious race. With a mysterious alien force rushing toward Earth, presumably with less-than-friendly intentions, your mission is to take back and rebuild the station and use it to research new technologies, create new alliances, and find out some way to head off the attack. The Lightspeed Edition makes some important tweaks to gameplay, which includes the enhancement to fights, huge changes to the UI, and a “streamlined” campaign that dramatically speeds up the pace of progression.
Rage 2, id Software’s pink-apocalypse FPS, which we described following its 2019 release as “an exceptional shooter cursed by a bland world.” It will be joined by Absolute Drift, a minimalist top-down racing simulator from Funselektor Labs, who also made the Art of Rally.
Halcyon 6: Lightspeed Edition will be free on the Epic Store until February 18.
