Epic Games is giving away a free PC game every two weeks this year via its new Store, and the next of those free titles has now been revealed. What Remains of Edith Finch, one of 2017’s best games, will be available free of charge from January 10 until January 25.
All you need to do is create an Epic account on its Store and claim the game within those dates. You’ll then be able to play the game for free whenever you like, even after January 25. Currently, the free game on offer is Super Meat Boy, which is free until What Remains of Edith Finch takes over on January 10.
Edith Finch is a relatively short adventure game about a girl whose family have all suddenly died under mysterious circumstances. Playing from Edith’s perspective, you explore the family home to discover more about the events leading to each person’s death.
Our reviewer, Justin Clark, enjoyed the narrative-driven game immensely, awarding it a 9/10. «It’s not often that a game’s plot slips past the bitterness of grief to finally get to the acceptance, but that’s the triumph in What Remains of Edith Finch,» he wrote of the PS4 version in our What Remains of Edith Finch review. «Ultimately, if the game has any resemblance of a moral, it’s that the bravest, most beautiful thing every one of us does is choose to keep going, despite knowing what’s coming.»
