Hitman 3 goes to England for a murder mystery in a manor house

The PC launch of Hitman 3 will be a sneaky one, Io Interactive have announced, initially sneaking onto the Epic Games Store as one of those there timed exclusives. It'll be a one-year scloosie, their PR peeps tell us, after which I imagine we'll see it on Steam and such. Enough about stores: Io also revealed another of the game's settings, England's moody Dartmoor, where…

The Alto Collection is sliding onto the Epic Games Store for free next week

My phone is not a phone. I message on it, I poke things on it, and I take photos of my cat with it. Phoning people is the last thing I want to do with it. I also used to chase after llamas on my snowboard on it, but now I can do that on the PC as Alto’s Adventure and Alto's Odyssey, two lovingly…

Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlords update adds emotes, Epic Store and Steam party system

Feudal fighting simulator Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord has added a gold tier update that I’m going to immediately abuse. No longer will I need to celebrate a victory by grabbing my cat and hoisting her aloft. Instead, there are new in-game emotes that I can deploy after reducing my foe to a pile of corpses.There are other additions, including Epic Games Store and Steam…

Epic Games Store testing out achievements, with mod support still brewing

The Epic Games Store has started testing out achievements, which is nice. I like it when I do something ridiculous in Slay The Spire and a little picture comes up acknowledging how awesome I am (and ideally just how small a percentage of people are awesome in the same way). I would like this for Epic-only games too. They've shown off some for Ark: Survival…

Conan Exiles has been exiled from its free launch on the Epic Games Store

Bit on the nose, eh? Swords sharpened, muscles glistening, Conan Exiles was ready to make the jump to the Epic Games Store today, arriving with the fanfare of a spot in Epic's free game rotation. Pity, for the old warrior has been knocked back by a mighty blow. Funcom's sword-swinging survival sandbox has been pushed out of its new home indefinitely - and when it…

Civilization VI is free on the Epic Games Store right now

The latest giveaway on the Epic Games Store is a doozy: Civilization VI, for free, for keepsies. I'm pretty sure some countries consider handing out free Civ to be an act of economic terrorism, for encouraging innumerable late nights and sick days in people who couldn't resist the siren call of just one more turn. The turn-based strategy game may be almost four years old…

Rockstar have finally managed to get GTA Online back up, after a weekend where the game was basically unplayable due to overwhelming numbers of new players. The Epic Games Store is giving GTA V away free at the moment, see. So many people came to claim it that Epic's own servers collapsed during at the start the giveaway, so I guess it's only fair that…

Epic Games Store started a sale with free Grand Theft Auto V, and immediately fell over

As expected, the Epic Games Store is giving away Grand Theft Auto V for free this week. Unexpectedly, this attention-grabbing act was to kick off another Mega Sale with some big discounts and more coupons. And perhaps predictably, the offer of free GTA apparently raised enough interest for Epic's Store and client to fall flat on their cyberfaces. The sale does sound well worth a…

Looks like Grand Theft Auto 5 will be free on the Epic Games Store today

Keep your eye on the Epic Games Store today: the next free game they're giving away is almost certainly Grand Theft Auto V. That's a real solid get for free. Epic have been playing it coy, teasing a mystery game instead of announcing the next one as they usually do, then they seemingly blew the surprise by tweeting the announcement early. Welp. The freebie should…

Epic Games Store’s next few free games will require two-factor authentication

If you want to claim the next three weeks of freebies on the Epic Games Store, you'll first need to enable two-factor authentication on your account to strengthen its security. Two-factor authentication is easy to set up and use so it's not a bother, though it is curious that they're only requiring this until May 21st, not permanently. "We are making this change in an…

The trap is set. The Epic Games Store have dropped Just Cause 4 and Wheels of Aurelia on the ground for you to grab for free this week. Please ignore the dangling cage overhead.

Industries Of Titan and eight other games are Epic’s next exclusives

Spring has not yet sprung in my neck of the woods but Epic are busy planting the seeds for new games regardless. They've announced the next "PC exclusive titles" coming to the Epic Game Store throughout the season and it's a nice-lookin' bunch. Control's first DLC is among them, as are several solid indie games you may recognize from trailers and reveals during last year's…
