'Crying Suns' Free On Epic Games Store, 'Star Wars Battlefront II' Next Week

by Rainier on Jan. 7, 2021 @ 4:17 p.m. PST

Crying Suns is a rogue-lite and tactical game where you explore a dying galaxy as a space fleet commander.

As a deep story-driven game experience, each successful run will uncover a part of the underlying truth about the fall of the galactic Empire.

After 700 years of peace and prosperity, the Galactic Empire has suddenly been shattered into pieces

The OMNIs, god-like machines which do everything for their human masters, have mysteriously shut down. And humankind, having lost the ability to survive on its own long ago, is dangerously close to extinction.

But somewhere in a far corner of the galaxy is Gehenna, a planet of ice and rock and a top-secret military and cloning facility that is both the pinnacle of Imperial Tech and humanity's last chance.

You are a clone of Admiral Ellys Idaho, a weapon fashioned from flesh, the best Imperial Admiral ever to battle in the stars and you have just been awoken on this harsh planet by its strange and darkly-humorous Guardian, Kaliban, the last-functional OMNI to exist.

Your mission: skillfully command a battleship through the Empire's now chaotic, violent clusters -- where one wrong move could be your last -- as you try to reactive the OMNIs and save the future of all humankind.

But you must leave Gehenna now...for time is running out.

Once Crying Suns, the current free game on the Epic Games Store, has run its course, it will be up to Star Wars Battlefront II: Celebration Edition, which will be gratis starting January 14 until January 21, 2021.
