Epic Games Store freebies this week are Alien: Isolation and Hand of Fate 2

The Epic Games Store has two free games available this week.

Epic Games Store users can download Alien: Isolation and Hand of Fate 2 for free this week.

This is the second time Alien: Isolation has been made available for free from the store. It was most recently handed out four months ago as part of the store's Christmas drops.

In the game, you play as Ellen Ripley’s daughter who is investigating the Sevastopol after her mother never returned from the doomed space station. The game was a critical and commercial success and a rather nice horror experience.

If you pick up the game and need a bit of a hand, check out our Alien: Isolation complete walkthrough.

The other free game, Hand of Fate 2, is played partly at a desk as a mysterious man places cards before you and you navigate forward with dice rolls and conversation choices.

A sequel to Defiant Development’s Xbox One, PS4, Vita, and Steam title which released in 2015, as in the original, the game plays out as a tabletop card game, but switches to a full 3D battle mode during encounters. Deckbuilding only gets you so far, as the Dealer controls what order the cards fall in.

Next week on the store, licensed Dungeons & Dragons strategy management game Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms will be your freebie.
