Epic Games Store Confirms Second Mystery Game, Teases Third Game
The Epic Games Store confirms and releases its second mystery game of the year, while leaving fans a cryptic teaser for the third.
While Epic game store Users can generally expect a new selection of free games every Thursday, the Epic Games Store mystery game promotion is now underway. This means fans can expect a new free game every day at 10 a.m., instead of just Thursday. This means that EGS will be giving away a total of 15 free games to celebrate the end of 2021 and the holidays.
The promotion started in earnest yesterday when the first free-to-play game on the Epic Games Store was confirmed to be Shenmue 3. This title is an action-adventure trio where fans must avenge the death of their father. Despite its popular launch on Kickstarter, it sparked some controversy and ended up receiving mixed reviews on Metacritic. Now, the Epic Games Store has confirmed the second free mystery game, available until December 18 at 10 a.m.
For today’s mystery game, Epic Games Store is offering Neon Abyss. Neon Abyss Also has a mixed metacritic score and is a roguelike dungeon crawling action game. Neon Abyss is very involved in its functionality, with an evolving dungeon with new items, endings and more; item synergies, just to keep players on their toes; and, finally, over 500 items, 100 monsters and bosses, tons of secrets, and more.
It even goes a step further compared to other roguelike games such as Underworld to feature hatching eggs and pets, numerous mini-games in unique rooms, playable multiplayer characters and unique neon gods. In addition, the Epic Games Store has also taken a step closer to the free game of tomorrow than yesterday with Neon Abyss for today. Neon Abyss could have been anything, making it impossible to speculate or guess what it might be. This time around, the wrapping paper for the third mystery game presents a match for what the game is for.
As seen above, there appears to be a unique looking tree on the wrapping paper. It’s still to be guessed but it’s much more limited than Neon Abyss has been. It seems important, the first speculations are that the third free mystery game from Epic Games Store will be Don’t starve / Don’t starve together. Of course, that could still be something quite different, but fans will be able to find out tomorrow. They will also want to make sure they download Neon Abyss before it shoots tomorrow, December 18, at 10 a.m.
Epic game store users typically get a handful of free games each week.
