Bethesda's shooter game that is still fully priced at most storefronts is free to keep on Epic Games Store and it would be quite the range if one were to miss picking this one up.

Rage 2 can be claimed at no charge for a week on Epic Games Store. To get the game, make sure you visit Rage 2 store page on EGS before February 25, 2021, and click on "Get" which is temporarily replacing the "Buy" button. 

You will need to confirm the acquisition and will have the option to share info with Bethesda and provide them with your info. Keep in mind that this is optional and you are not required to check the box, even though the colour of the green button next to it might hint otherwise. Just click the green button and the game is yours.

Anyway, the shooting elements of Rage 2 are praised by those who played it but the gameplay loop is held back by a story that not many got into as well as checklist objectives that water down the experience. If you are not sure what we are talking about, it's very much the chores like capturing outposts and climbing towers in Far Cry games.

Another thing that kept the players from liking Rage 2 is the mouse acceleration and aim assists, neither of which can be turned off apparently, for inexplicable reasons.

While the big-budget Rage 2 may be the highlight this week, make sure you give Absolute Drift a go as well. It may not be as flashy but certainly brings serenity and a soothing experience with its atmosphere while you're sliding through the tracks.
