Epic Games revealed the next free games on their store. Ubisoft's melee action For Honor and Remedy's horror Alan Wake will be available from 02 until 09 August 2019. Also, This War of Mine and Moonbreaker are now available for download.

Epic Games' offering of free games has been mainly focused on smaller titles like The Witness and Rime, but the next two free titles on their store are high-profile games from Ubisoft and Remedy Entertainment.

Starting on 02 August 2019 at 8:00 PDT / 11:00 EDT / 16:00 BST, Epic Games Store will give everyone melee action title For Honor and narrative-driven horror Alan Wake. Both these titles will be available until 09 August 2019 at 8:00 PDT / 11:00 EDT / 16:00 BST.

Last week, Epic Games announced that whenever they offer an M rated or PEGI-18 game in the future, they will also add another title that will be more accessible to players of all age.

Due to Epic Games Store parental settings, some players can miss out on a freebie but Epic want to make sure that everyone gets at least one free game, so that's why they are offering two titles. Ubisoft's For Honor is rated M, meaning that Remedy's Alan Wake, which is PEGI-16 rated title, comes as a bonus.

For Honor already had a couple of free giveaways since it's release. The game was available for free on both Steam and Uplay and players also had a chance to try out the game during free weekends.

Alan Wake, on the other hand, had some deep sales, where you could get it for a very low price. The game was even removed from some stores last year, after an issue with music licence forced the publisher Microsoft to renegotiate the rights to the licensed music in Alan Wake, so that the game can be sold again.

Also, starting today, you can download two other freebies on Epic Games Store - the wartime survival from 11-bit studios This War of Mine and Digital Sun Games' action RPG with rogue-lite elements Moonlighter. These will be available for free until 02 August 2019.
