The Vanishing of Ethan Carter and Rogue Legacy are free on the Epic Games Store

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter and Rogue Legacy free on Epic promo

Another double giveaway has dropped in from the Epic Games Store, offering PC gamers heading to the storefront copies of The Vanishing of Ethan Carter and Rogue Legacy to keep without spending a dime. This also marks the end of Warhammer: Total War and City of Brass freebie promotions from last week.

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter by The Astronauts brings forth an atmospheric exploration and mystery experience where you take the role of Paul Prospero, a detective with the ability to communicate with the dead. The title is known for its high environmental visual fidelity thanks to the use of photogrammetry. You receive both the original game and the 2015-released Unreal Engine 4 version here.

Here's the setting as described by the developer:

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is a first-person mystery focused on exploration and discovery. As an occult-minded detective Paul Prospero, piece together the truth behind Ethan’s disappearance — and the fate of his family.

Meanwhile, Rogue Legacy offers a rogue-lite platforming adventure where you dive through procedurally generated castles. The title has a wide range of characters to progress with, and every time you die, you restart the adventure with a new and improved successor that has fresh quirks of their own.

The gameplay loop is described as follows on the store page:

A genealogical rogue-"LITE" where anyone can be a hero. Each time you die, your unique child will succeed you. One child might be colorblind, another might be a dwarf with vertigo. But that's OK, because no one is perfect, and you don't have to be to succeed.

When not on sale, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter goes for $19.99, while a fresh copy of Rogue Legacy would set you back $14.99. The minimum system requirements are below:
