We are used to it now. Epic knows how to seduce gamers by offering one or two new games every week on its store. Sometimes it’s even madness, and we remember in particular that triple A’s such as The Witcher III and GTA V were graciously donated to the public. For the latter, the success had been such that Rockstar’s servers had been in great difficulty.
Bloons TD 6 offered on the Epic Games Store
For the end of the year celebrations, the Epic Games Store is reproducing its operation which it has been carrying out since 2020. Thus, each user of the platform will be able to recover a free game each day. Once downloaded, the game is yours for good.
For this first day, Epic starts with Bloons TD 6. It is a tower defense type strategy game developed by Ninja Kiwi and released in 2018 on PC. This title takes place in a world of balloons, where the player must build special towers to stop the balloons trying to cross their territory.
Towers can be upgraded and upgraded with coins and special skill points. The player can also build special defenses, like traps, walls, and mines to help stop balloons.
This game will not necessarily inspire everyone, but it received generally positive reviews when it was released. Many hail its colorful and lively atmosphere. It is always possible to take it in order to test it later.
For the other gifts, you will of course have to come back every day at 5 p.m. to discover the new game. Epic is once again opting for this advent calendar format which has already proven itself, while maintaining a certain suspense. Last year, Epic notably offered Tomb Raider Trilogy, neon abyss, vampire, Prey, Control Pathfinder: Kingmaker – Enhanced Plus Editionn, or Shen Mue 3.
Steam sales are coming
Of course, nothing is ever free in life. With this aggressive marketing strategy, Epic wants to steal market share from its great rival Steam. Moreover, the latter is not to be outdone and, as every year, will offer its traditional Christmas sales. However, we will have to wait one more week, since this promotional period will start on December 22 and end on January 5, 2023.
