Halcyon 6 is currently free on the Epic Games Store, although it’ll be replaced on February 18 by Absolute Drift and Rage 2. Those titles will remain free until February 25, at which time they’ll probably be replaced by another batch of freebies.
Rage 2 is the follow-up to id Software’s brutal 2011 title of the same name. It follows the last Ranger of Vineland, Walker, who is trying to survive a wasteland overrun with murderous mutants and loot-hungry bandits. Its tight, bloody gunplay is the star of the show, while its microtransactions and short story rubbed most reviewers the wrong way. Still, it’s more than worth a few hours of your day – especially if it’s available for free.
The other freebie on February 18 is Absolute Drift, and it couldn’t be more different from Rage 2. Absolute Drift is a minimalistic racing game that sees you drifting your way through winding courses as you race against ghosts of the top players in the world. It also includes more than three hours of electronic music so you can kick back, relax, and enjoy a bit of low stakes racing.
Epic Games continues to offer free games on a regular basis, and that trend doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon. The storefront is also holding a massive Spring Sale right now, giving you a chance to pick up titles like Cyberpunk 2077 and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla at a discount.
