Epic Games continue to positively surprise us with their selection of free games, and this week's freebies are Avalanche Studios' shooter Just Cause 4 and Santa Ragione's delightful adventure game Wheels of Aurelia.

It's well worth saying that Sweeney and Co have been pretty generous with their weekly video game freebies. As part of their plan to ensure all ages can play at least one of the free games, they often double the offer, Yes, exactly like today.

If you somehow missed out on the heroic exploits of Rico Rodriguez, then you're in for a treat. The timing couldn't have been more perfect either, considering most of us are holed up in our hobbit holes.

Just Cause 4 follows Rodriguez's attempts to find his father, whose disappearance and rumoured affiliation with the Black Hand bring him to the fictional, but visually just gorgeous South American country of Solis. 

Boasting the biggest playing area in the series, on top of the impressive visuals, Just Cause 4 is as serious and as goofy as you need it to be. Granted, it takes a few freedoms when it comes to physices, of flight, but the fun factor there for all to see.

Epic's second freebie is Wheels of Aurelia, an experience that's in sharp contrast to Just Cause 4's hectic and explosive gameplay, 

Assuming the role of Leila, an Italian girl whose driving along the Italian motorway Via Aurelia serves as a backdrop for a unique experience with a number of branching dialogue options.

As it often happens with games that prioritise stories and mood over challenging mechanics, Wheels of Aurelia faced some criticism for not being game enough. 

We'll let you be the judge though - you can pick the games up on the Epic Games Store .
