Epic Games Store are offering two horror freebies this week. Players can grab gritty cyberpunk game Observer and visit Arizona in Alan Wake's American Nightmare.

In-game Halloween-themed events, modes and skins are in full swing at the moment and Epic Games Store decided to join the party with their own treats. Just like every Thursday, the publisher decided to reveal the two new games that will be available on Epic Games Store for free.

This time, Epic Games are giving away two horror titles for a proper Halloween celebration. These titles are Bloober Team's Observer and Remedy Entertainment's Alan Wake's American Nightmare. You will be able to grab both of these games from today - 17 October 2019 until Thursday, 24 October 2019

If you're unfamiliar with the games, Observer is set in cyberpunk universe and it's a first-person, investigative horror where players take a role of Dan Lazarski, an elite neural detective known as an Observer who is part of a corporate-funded police unit whose purpose is to hack and invade suspects’ minds.

As for Alan Wake's American Nightmare, it's a younger brother of Remedy's Steven King horror Alan Wake, a game which tells a story of a writer who is searching for his wife, who went missing on their vacation. It's a pretty dark thriller and quite an enjoyable one too. American Nightmare is a bit different, with more action-focused gameplay and while it's not even close to its predecessor, it's a free game so it can't be that bad, right?

After Alan Wake and Observer leave Epic Games Store' freebies offering, Ten Hut Games' Q.U.B.E.2 and another Bloober Team title Layers of Fear in its Masterpiece Edition will become available to players.
