Epic Games Store is giving away a free game every day in December. The store front from FortniteThe creators have been doing this for over a week and have given away some amazing games like Alien Isolation and Darkest dungeon. The free game for December 30 is Torchlight II starts at 11 am, but the price tag disappears exactly 24 hours later. This is one of the best free Epic Games Store titles of the Christmas season yet, especially if you love dungeon-crawler RPGs like Diablo, so you should act quickly.
Torchlight II was first released by Runic Games back in 201
Players control one of four unique classes – Engineer, Outlander, Berserker and Embermage – and embark on a journey to defeat The Alchemist, who has been destroyed by an evil entity called Ember Blight. From there, players can venture through many procedurally generated dungeons, battle hordes of enemies and collect fantastic loot along the way.
While the gameplay is pretty standard for the genre, the gameplay is still super satisfying even though it’s easy to pick up. The classes, especially the engineer, also stand out from other role-playing games that fall into the same category Dungeons & Dragons inspired classes.
Once you’ve beaten the story, which should already take you around 20 hours, you’ll feel compelled to come back just because of how easy but fun it is to play, and maybe double or triple the playing time. The procedure generation stays healthy, and the looting is very good for making discoveries of late games as satisfying as early games.
Torchlight 2 also supports collaborative multiplayer for up to 6 players. It was the first game in the series to do so, and this genre is at its best when you are able to play and share the experience with others. If you get some friends to redeem the game today as well, you may have found your next addictive multiplayer game.
Even after eight years and the release of a sequel, Torchlight 2 is still a fantastic dungeon crawler RPG and favorite of the series of fans. Torchlight 2 has even more positive reviews than Torchlight 3 on Steam. If you’re a fan of role-playing games, but have never dipped your toes in this series, it’s better to try this free game instead of spending $ 19.99 or more on the sequel on another platform.
You only have a short window to redeem this game, as it is free on the Epic Games Store for just one day. The agreement went live at 11 am east on December 30, and it will only be free until 11 East on December 31, where it will be replaced by Epic Game Store’s latest free game of the year.
