This week's free games on the Epic Games Store are not to be missed

Platforms: PC

The Epic Games Store has been dishing out excellent free titles each week on the platform, and this week is no different, with an unmissable offering of Hyper Light Drifter and Mutant Year Zero: Road To Eden. Both titles are available to download for free right now.

Heart Machine's Hyper Light Drifter launched on PC in 2016, and is best described as a gorgeous, top-down hack-and-slasher that encourages the exploration of the mysterious world your character inhabits. It's long been considered a bit of a modern classic, so for the grand 'ol price of nothing, downloading Hyper Light Drifter is a no-brainer. If you're not yet convinced, check out our glowing review here.

The second free game gifted to Epic Games Store users this week is the under-appreciated Mutant Year Zero: Road To Eden from developer The Bearded Ladies. The game is self-described as a "tactical game that combines the turn-based combat of XCOM with real-time stealth and exploration of a post-human world reclaimed by nature... and Mutants". Now, I personally don't need more than that to dive in, but in case you do, be sure to check out our review of the game here.

Both Hyper Light Drifter and Mutant Year Zero: Road To Eden are free right now on the Epic Games Store until August 22nd. Next week, mind-bending puzzler Fez will be free from August 22nd to the 29th.
