Hyper Light Drifter is free to claim today on the Epic Games Store

Hyper Light Drifter is free to claim today on the Epic Games Store, marking the ninth day of the 12 Days of Free Games event.

Those who keep a keen eye on these giveaways would realize that Hyper Light Drifter is a repeat, just like Celeste was two days ago. It was given away in August as a bonus game with Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden.

A 2D action RPG, Hyper Light Drifter features an art style inspired by the 90s’ 16-bit titles. Originating as a Kickstarter project that garnered over $600,000, the game saw a release in 2016, received with praise for its visuals, sound design, as well as gameplay mechanics. Here’s how the Epic Games Store describes the title:

Echoes of a dark and violent past resonate throughout a savage land, steeped in treasure and blood. Hyper Light Drifter is an action adventure RPG in the vein of the best 16­bit classics, with modernized mechanics and designs on a much grander scale.

Epic Games Store is offering the game for players on Windows, though it’s also available for macOS and Linux via Steam, where it is discounted to $9.99 at the time of writing. Here are the minimum requirements:

  • OS: Windows 7 and above
  • Processor: 1.2 GHz
  • Memory: 4 GB RAM
  • Graphics: 512 mb video memory (DirectX 10)
  • Storage: 2 GB available space

Hyper Light Drifter is available to claim at its store page. Epic Coupon is also available for the ongoing holiday sale, discounting any game that’s priced above $14.99 and not a pre-order by $10. Hyper Light Drifter will be available to claim for free until tomorrow 11AM ET.
