Epic Games Store Free Games of the Week- Hyper Light Drifter and Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden

With another week comes another set of free games from the Epic Games Store and this week we’ve got two really fantastic post-apocalyptic RPG titles. These games will be available from 14th August till 22nd August so make sure to get them.

Hyper Light Drifter

Echoes of a dark and violent past resonate throughout a savage land, steeped in treasure and blood. Hyper Light Drifter is an action adventure RPG in the vein of the best 16­bit classics, with modernized mechanics and designs on a much grander scale.

Drifters of this world are the collectors of forgotten knowledge, lost technologies and broken histories. Our Drifter is haunted by an insatiable illness, traveling further into the lands of Buried Time, hoping to discover a way to quiet the vicious disease.

Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden

The humans are all gone. Scavenging through the remains of civilization are the Mutants, deformed humanoids and animals alike, searching for salvation or just something to eat. To survive, you and your companions must venture out to explore the Zone.

Maybe one day you will find the Eden of legends, the ancients’ haven in the middle of hell. That’s where truth awaits, the stories say. Maybe you will find your answers there.

Both games are available now and will be replaced by Fez from 22nd August onwards.

Hyper Light Drifter makes its way to iOS with 120FPS

Hyper Light Drifter, the absolutely gorgeous 2D action RPG is making its way to iOS and has a very surprising feature that isn’t even available on PC yet.

Hyper Light Drifter will be playable on all iOS devices. The iPhone and iPad versions of the game will run at a buttery smooth 60fps while in a big surprise, the iPad Pro version will run at 120fps.

The PC Version originally released with the game running at a max of 30fps and the devs then had to “rework 155k lines of code” to get the game to run at 60fps. The fact that this isn’t available on PC yet with no word about whether or not it will be made available has left a sour taste in a lot of the PC players’ mouth.

The game also features controller support which is a must for this game and also has the amazing soundtrack that perfectly intertwines itself with the visuals and gameplay to give a rich, exciting and memorable experience. The full feature set is listed below.

Features:

● 120 fps gameplay on iPad Pro / 60 fps on iPhone and iPad.

● Compatible with MFi controllers.

● Game Center achievements.

● Haptic Vibration.

● From each character to subtle background elements, everything is lovingly hand-animated.

● Easy to pick up, difficult to master; enemies are vicious and numerous, hazards will easily crush your frail body, and friendly faces remain rare.

● Upgrade weapons, learn new skills, discover equipment and traverse a dark, detailed world with branching paths and secrets abound.

● Evocative soundtrack composed by Disasterpeace.

● All the content from the original game + more weapons, enemies and areas from the Special edition.
