Void Bastards and Yooka-Laylee are free on PC
Epic Games is giving away two more games this week through the Epic Games Store.
First up is strategy shooter Void Bastards. Players must lead the rag-tag Void Bastards out of the Sargasso Nebula through derelict spaceships by deciding where to go, what to do, and who to fight, and then carrying out the strategy.
“Navigate your tiny escape pod through the vast nebula,” the game’s description adds. “Flee from void whales and pirates, and politely avoid the hungry hermits. All the while you must keep scavenging for the food, fuel, and other resources that keep you alive.”
Also available this week is Playtonic’s Yooka-Laylee. The open-world platformer follows partners Yooka and Laylee on an epic adventure to put a stop to corporate creep Capital B and his devious scheme to absorb all the world’s books.
Both games are free to download and keep from the Epic Games Store until August 26th. Following these titles will be Automachef, which will be free from August 26th through September 2nd.
