'Rumbleverse' And 'Doom 64' Free On Epic Games Store, 'Ring of PainBoom Boxer Pack' Next Week

by Rainier on Aug. 18, 2022 @ 8:56 a.m. PDT

For the next week, the Epic Games Store is offering two titles for free: Rumbleverse and Doom 64.

Rumbleverse

Visit Grapital City, where you can brawl anywhere and be anyone! Enter a 40-person melee as you lay the smack down to be declared Champion in this Brawler-Royale.

Rumbleverse is a new free-to-play melee battle royale, firing up to 40 players out of a cannon and into the streets of Grapital City to unleash an ever-changing arsenal of elbow drops, powerbombs, and dropkicks as they scale, leap and vault across the city streets and rooftops.

The setting for Rumbleverse is Grapital City, a place that was built as a monument to the glorious traditions of melee combat. Every citizen of this island lives for the fight and dreams of becoming a champion, and you can become one of them. In this game, you’ll create a unique character to be shot out of a cannon to experience the Rumble. Dash through the city streets in search of upgrades to level up the way you fight and battle all challengers to be the last player standing – either alone or as a member of a tag-team.

Rumbleverse is what we call a Brawler Royale. If you’ve ever played a battle royale game, you’re in for some surprises. This is a chance for you to put down the long-range weapons and get up close and personal with your opponents. In Grapital City, almost anything can be a weapon and there is no structure you cannot climb. There is chaos around every corner. You can leap from rooftop to rooftop. You can suplex an opponent from the heights of the tallest skyscraper to the streets below.

Customize your fighter with everything from a chef hat, to a hotdog vest, to a chicken mask – with 14 points of customization you’ll be sure to create a character that’s wholly unique to you.

Once Rumbleverse Boom Boxer Pack and Doom 64, the current free games on the Epic Games Store, have run their course, it will be up to Ring Of Pain, which will be gratis starting August 25 until September 1, 2022.

Ring of Pain

Delve into randomly generated ring dungeons where encounters come to you! Observe and plan your route. Will you go for the loot or backstab a creeping horror? As you scavenge, fight and sneak to new encounters, the ring reacts to your actions.

Play as fast or slow as you like in this challenging, turn-based roguelike. Just be careful where you tread - You may find yourself ambushed, or worse...

See the outcome of your choices so you can focus on decisions.
Creatures broadcast their actions in a hostile environment, ready to erupt. Will you flee or find a way to use the dungeon against itself?
Positioning is key to survival. You can be quickly overwhelmed...

Observe the Ring and strategize.
Learn, adapt, or face demise.

Mimics offer you a choice for a price. Take what you can hold and build a combination of gear with passive powers.
Maybe you’ll be quick and evasive, with an acid soaked blade. Or maybe you’ll be a brute force juggernaut, or a fireborn damage sink with an affinity for explosions.
Buy your way to power or adapt with what you scavenge in these unforgiving depths.

Deep in the Ring of Pain you will discover new paths into the unknown. Places with new friends, powerful loot, and cryptic rhyming lore.
Find pleasant reprieve and howling terrors best left undisturbed.
The brave may be rewarded for their risk... or crushed by their ambition.

In darkness, careful where you tread.
What was unknown now fills with dread.

DOOM 64

Play the enhanced version of the original game released on the Nintendo 64 in 1997. Years have passed since you stopped Hell’s invasion of Earth. Quarantined for humanity’s safety, the UAC research facilities on Mars were abandoned and forgotten...until now.

Originally released on Nintendo 64 in 1997, DOOM 64 is an action first-person shooter and a direct sequel to the events of DOOM II. In celebration of DOOM’s 25th anniversary, an enhanced version of DOOM 64 was released on PC and consoles in 2020 and can now be played here.

Years have passed since you stopped Hell’s invasion of Earth. Quarantined for humanity’s safety, the UAC research facilities on Mars were abandoned and forgotten...until now. A signal from a degraded satellite suggests a single entity remains, and it has the power to resurrect the demons. As the only surviving marine who fought Hell’s forces, you are sent on a lone crusade to hunt down the Mother of Demons and stop a renewed demonic invasion.

Released in 2020 to celebrate DOOM’s 25th anniversary, this enhanced version makes it even easier for players to enjoy the original game on modern platforms. Features include:

  • Upgraded visuals
  • Improved mouse and keyboard controls
  • Gamepad/controller support
  • Widescreen resolution support
  • Native 60 FPS support
  • More than 30 action-packed levels
  • Additional “Lost Levels” continuing the story
