Turn-based games' popularity is rather high lately and fans of the genre can pick one such freebie up from Epic games Store while another is on the way for the next week's promotion.

Harebrained Schemes put themselves on the map with a great run of narrative-led, turn-based cyberpunk games in the Shadowrun universe. They eventually released BattleTech and got bought out by Paradox but it is the original run of the games that are in the focus of this article.

Shadowrun Collection is available free of charge on Epic Games Store right now. This includes Shadowrun Returns, Shadowrun: Dragonfall and Shadowrun: Hong Kong.

Each campaign will put players in the middle of a huge conspiracy in a cyberpunk world and if you are into intricate stories but don't mind reading dialogue, you are in for a triple treat.

Hitman needs no introduction as it's one of the most well-known franchises in the gaming world. The first game from the World of Assassination trilogy, the one released in 2016, is also available at no charge. 

Technically, you could play it for free already but the episodes would have to be purchased separately. However, this offer on EGS includes all of the Season One locations and episodes, at no extra charge.

While Hitman is not a turn-based game, fans of the genre will definitely have enough content to fill their week with the Shadowrun collection, before Into the Breach becomes available on September 3, 2020.

It is one of the most loved games released in the past few years and it currently looks like it will be the sole freebie offering next week. Then again, one great game in the week is still quite the catch.
