Another Thursday has passed, which means it’s time to see what the next free games are coming to the Epic Games Store. As of now, Epic users can grab Shadow Tactics: Blade of the Shogun and Alba.

However, I’d argue that next week’s deal is a bit better, as Evil Dead: The Game and Dark Deity are both available in the store’s free deals starting Thursday. November 17th to November 24th.

Here’s the Evil Dead: The Game overview trailer so you know what to expect.

Evil Dead: The Game is certainly the highlight of the two offerings. Launched back in May, the Epic Games exclusive actually managed to sell over 500,000 units in its first week alone. Honestly, as far as the asymmetric horror genre goes (and as much as I’m sick of it), Evil Dead: The Game is undoubtedly one of the more fun descents into the general chaos of cult-classic horror.

Developed by Saber Interactive, the game itself pits four survivors (who are, of course, all key characters from the Evil Dead franchise) against a single demon. The demon’s job is to do everything in his power to stop the survivors from surviving, while the survivors must hunt artifacts, fight demon counterparts, and stop the demon from realizing their sinister plans.

Coupled with maps straight out of the Evil Dead movies and plenty of hilarious jokes, Evil Dead: The Game is a light-hearted, authentic take on what Sam Raimi is so good at. Evil Dead: The Game, available for free on the Epic Games Store, is undoubtedly a must-read for any Raimi fan, and even any horror fan. That said, as I confirmed in my review of the playful horror title, there’s no denying that once the novelty wears off, the charming nature of Evil Dead: The Game can wane at quite a speed.

Joining Evil Dead: The Game in next week’s free games selection on Epic is Dark Deity. This tactical RPG comes from Sword & Ax LLC and borrows heavily from Fire Emblem, which isn’t a bad thing. The game itself follows four students at a military academy who are thrown into war.

If you need to see more of Dark Deity to make up your mind, here’s the trailer.

I can’t tell you how good or bad Dark Deity is, as tactical turn-based titles have always been a bit too slow for my liking (unless we’re talking Pokemon). That means it will be free, so there’s no harm in trying it out if Fire Emblem is your thing!

That’s all for Epic’s deals for next week! Will you check out any of these games or have you already spent time playing games like Alba and Shadow Tactics? Let us know.
