Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun

Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun is the latest Epic Games Store freebie that will be available during 28 and 29 December 2019. The game seems to bedazzle anyone who touches it so this is a great opportunity to give it a go.

Epic Games' new daily freebie will be up for grabs until Sunday, 29 December 2019, 17:00 CET / 08:00 AM PT. If you have no qualms with using Epic Games Store or the launcher, we would highly suggest grabbing Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun before the time expires.

The game is of stealth real-time tactics genre which is not a something you see every day. Technically, some of the most popular titles from this genre have been released just before and just after the turn of the millennium. We are, of course, talking about Commandos (1998) and Desperados (2001) and while there were sequels down the line, it has been a long time since we've had a similar treat.

Enter Shadow Tactics, the game that refreshed the good old memories but this time around our heroes are not sabotaging Nazis during World War 2 or chasing Wild West outlaws. Instead, we are fighting through our heroes' adventures during Japan's Edo period. Considering there is stealth involved, it's only natural that one of the main characters is a ninja and given the era we're in, it was only fitting we had a samurai in the posse.

While it's not the easygoing, storytelling type of a game, it has managed to garner 95 per cent positive user reviews on Steam, meaning you are almost guaranteed to enjoy it. No, the irony of using Steam user reviews when talking about the same game on Epic Games Store is not lost on us.
