Metro: Last Light and For The King are free on Epic Games Store this week

Epic Games Store has put on offer, as a repeat, For The King, as well as Metro: Last Light Redux, for its giveaway this week, taking the place of Dandara: Trials of Fear Edition.

A turn-based RPG with roguelike elements, For The King features procedurally generated maps, quests, and events with three-player local and online coop as well as solo play. Here's how the Epic Games Store describes it:

For The King is a challenging blend of strategy, turn-based combat, and roguelike elements. Each playthrough is unique with procedural maps, quests, and events. Explore Fahrul in either single player, local, or online co-op.

Metro: Last Light continues the story where Metro 2033 left off, putting players in the Moscow Metro in a post-apocalyptic world following a nuclear armageddon. On offer is the Redux edition of the game which comes with overall enhancements to the engine. Here's how the Epic Games Store describes it:

It is the year 2034. Beneath the ruins of post-apocalyptic Moscow, in the tunnels of the Metro, the remnants of mankind are besieged by deadly threats from outside – and within. Mutants stalk the catacombs beneath the desolate surface, and hunt amidst the poisoned skies above.

But rather than stand united, the station-cities of the Metro are locked in a struggle for the ultimate power, a doomsday device from the military vaults of D6. A civil war is stirring that could wipe humanity from the face of the earth forever. As Artyom, burdened by guilt but driven by hope, you hold the key to our survival – the last light in our darkest hour…
