The Epic Games Store launched a little while ago, and in order to attract a bunch of new customers Epic vowed to give away a free game every two weeks throughout the entirety of 2019. The current game on offer is Axiom Verge, so if you're interested in a bit of Metroidvania action, you should head on over to the Epic Games Store before this part of the promotion ends on February 21st.

I haven't played Axiom Verge myself, but I have heard a great deal of good things about it, so if you're a fan of the original Metroid or the genre as a whole, it might just be worth checking out. After all, it is entirely free! The one thing you should know before diving in is that Axiom Verge is a rather tricky game, so do make sure to approach it with a bit of patience, lest you find yourself dying over and over again.

You can learn a bit more about Axiom Verge, as well as follow its developers moving forward, over at the official website. And just for good measure, allow me to leave you with one of the trailers. Have fun!
