Thursday means it’s time for another round of new free PC games on the Epic Games Store. This week, you can pick up the digital edition of A Game of Thrones: The Board Game and Car Mechanic Simulator 2018. Next week, we’ll unearth a turn-based tactical RPG from 2020 called Iratus: Lord of the Dead. .
If you’re familiar with Darkest Dungeon, Iratus is basically that game backwards. Instead of exploring further down into the depths below a mansion, in Iratus: Lord of the Dead, you start deep underground. You are a necromancer and your goal is to escape from your creepy underground vault to rain death and destruction on the unfortunates living on the surface.
To do that, you’ll need the help of your loyal army of undead servants, which can include all the usual suspects: skeletons, banshees, ghouls, and just about anything else that’s actively decaying. Here is the trailer.
Iratus is more focused on jumping from combat to combat than Darkest Dungeon, and you won’t be making the same emotional investment in the characters, and that can be a bit of a relief, because Darkest Dungeon can be quite overwhelming at times. .
You’ll be able to get a free copy of Iratus: Lord of the Dead on the Epic Games Store starting June 30 at 8am PST / 11am EST / 6pm BST.
