With the turning of the calendar to a fresh new Thursday, a pair of new games are now free for the taking on the Epic Games Store: The bullet-hell dungeon crawler Enter the Gungeon (opens in new tab), and God's Trigger (opens in new tab), a "power fantasy" top-down team-up between an angel and a demon.
Enter the Gungeon is challenging and occasionally unfair, but quite good overall: We rated it 78/100 (opens in new tab) in 2016, and it's got an "overwhelmingly positive" rating across more than 45,000 user reviews on Steam. We didn't review God's Trigger but I thought it looked like a lot of fun last year (opens in new tab): A bit like a cross between Good Omens (opens in new tab) and a co-op Hotline Miami (opens in new tab).
God's Trigger and Enter the Gungeon are yours for the taking until August 27. Next week will see Agent 47 step into the breach, as IO Interactive's outstanding Hitman (opens in new tab) goes up for grabs, along with the cyberpunk goodness of the Shadowrun Collection, which includes Shadowrun Returns, Shadowrun Dragonfall: Director Cut, and Shadowrun Hong Kong: Extended Edition.
Speaking of Hitman, in case you missed it, IO announced today that Hitman 3 (opens in new tab) is on the way to the Epic Games Store sometime in 2021. There's a new trailer, too.
