Epic Games Store is offering Carcassonne and Ticket to Ride to claim for free for this week’s giveaway. Although It was announced to be included, Pandemic is a no-show this week. Epic Games, in a statement, said it will be made available at a later date without providing a reason for the delay.
Ticket to Ride is a turn-based strategy title based on the board game of the same name. It was originally developed as a browser game in 2004 but was eventually released as a standalone title in 2012. Along a similar theme, Carcassonne is also a turn-based strategy adaptation of the board game with the same name. It was originally released for the Xbox 360 in 2007. Here's how the Epic Games Store describes the two titles:
Ticket to Ride
The official adaptation of Days of Wonder's best-selling train board game, Ticket to Ride takes less than one minute to learn but a lifetime to master. Over 48 million games played online and a new game starting every 4 seconds on average! In addition to the exciting cross-platform asynchronous multiplayer mode, players will enjoy a new intuitive user interface, new social media capabilities to share exciting moments, and the brand new India map, the first vertical map to be available on Ticket to Ride.
The official adaptation of the famous board game Carcassonne! A modern classic tile-placement game based on the award wining game in which the players draw and place a tile with a piece of southern French landscape on it. The player can then decide to place one of his followers, so called Meeples, on one of the areas on it: on the city as a knight, on the road as a robber, on a cloister as a monk, or on the grass as a farmer. When that area is complete, that meeple scores points for its owner. Each new game is a new experience thanks to the ever-changing landscape.
Epic Games Store is offering Ticket to Ride and Carcassonne to players on Windows, but the former is also available for macOS and Linux via Steam, where it is priced $9.99 at the time of writing. Here are the minimum requirements:
