Oxenfree will be the next freebie on the Epic Games Store

The Epic Games Store's next freebie will be Oxenfree (opens in new tab), the dead-good adventure game about a group of teenagers who disturb something dark and mysterious on a remote island.

The game will be free to keep for two weeks from March 21. The latest free game on the Epic Games Store, Slime Rancher, is available to grab for free right now (opens in new tab)

There are plenty of reasons you should pick up Oxenfree: its coming-of-age tale is one of the best stories in PC gaming (opens in new tab), and it remains one of the top 100 games on PC (opens in new tab). You can read Andy's 83/100 review here (opens in new tab).

It also popped up in Alex's brilliant piece on the future of dialogue (opens in new tab) from 2017, which is well worth a read.
