Epic has been on an absolute roll for the past month or so. Anyone who’s diligent about picking up free games has gotten Into the Breach, Hitman, A Total War Saga: Troy, and Remnant from the Ashes as of late. This week has another can’t-miss game.
Americana folklore adventurer Where the Water Tastes Like Wine is free on the Epic Games Store this week. It has been, frankly, underappreciated ever since its 2018 release. It’s a special game for people who care about storytelling in video games.
There are trains in Where the Water Tastes Like Wine, and there are trains in the other Epic freebie. That’s the throughline, I guess. Transportation management sim Railway Empire is also free for the week. Pick that one up if you want the thrill of playing railroad tycoon (but not literally the thrill of playing Railroad Tycoon).
Next week, the lone announced freebie is Stick it to the Man.
