'Daemon X Machina' Free On Epic Games Store, 'Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair' Next Week

by Rainier on Jan. 27, 2022 @ 8:56 a.m. PST

For the next week, the Epic Games Store is offering one titles for free: Daemon X Machina.

Daemon X Machina is a fast-paced mech action game from Kenichiro Tsukuda. Players can customize their powered mech suit and tackle an array of missions to conquer enemies.

It was the greatest disaster in recorded history ... The moon tore apart, turning the sky into a kaleidoscope of red light that illuminated all who watched from below.

In this new action game from Kenichiro Tsukuda (Armored Core) and mech designer Shoji Kawamori, you must defend the planet through high-speed mech combat against corrupt robots. Choose and equip your Arsenal with a multitude of weapons, obtain more from downed enemy Arsenals, and swap them on the fly to suit your strategy in the face of ever-changing threats that may bring the end of the world.

You can also squad up with up to three other players locally or online to destroy titanic bosses in Co-op mode.

Once Daemon X Machina, the current free game on the Epic Games Store, has run its course, it will be up to Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair, which will be gratis starting February 3 until February 10, 2022.

Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair

Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair is a platform adventure where the colorful buddy duo must tackle a series of stunning, 2.5D levels and explore a puzzling 3D Overworld rich with secrets and surprises.

The return of ‘Tonics’, game-modifying potions first encountered in the original Yooka-Laylee, has also been confirmed. More than 60 Tonics can be collected, giving players the ability to mix up the game in brand-new ways. In Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair, Tonics not only affect gameplay – including infinite rolling, harder enemies, and super speed – but also unlock new environmental and visual effects! 

A range of exciting 2.5D levels sit within an expansive 3D Overworld, as Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair sees the duo unite in order to rescue members of Queen Phoebee’s Royal Beettalion Guard from the dastardly Capital B, in a quest to ultimately take on his most nefarious challenge yet: The Impossible Lair.
