Since the epic holiday giveaway in December, the Epic Games Store has slowed its number of releases to one per week. This may be the usual, but sometimes Epic Games Store sprinkles more in there than that. It’s remained rather consistent since the start of the year, at least until now.
From now until March 3, players will be able to claim Cris Tales on Epic Games Store. It’s an RPG worthy of fans’ time, but others may be curious about the games that come next. From March 3 until March 10, Epic Games Store users will be able to claim two games—Black Widow: Recharged and Centipede: Recharged. For those curious about these two titles, here’s what users should know.
Epic Games Store – Centipede: Recharged
Retro reboots are nothing new, and this is one for the classic arcade game Centipede. The classic gameplay style very much remains the focus, but the visuals and controls are vastly improved over its arcade counterpart. Furthermore, Centipede: Recharged features an original score by Megan McDuffee. Every single level is playable in local-cop, and players can also collect a dozen new power-ups and complete 30 challenges. At the end of the day, though, those wanting some Centipede nostalgia won’t miss out on that for all the new features either.
Epic Games Store – Black Widow: Recharged
Joining it, obviously by the name, is another retro reboot. Black Widow: Recharged may be less recognizable than Centipede to some, but players will be defending their spider web from an attack of bugs via twin-stick shooter gameplay. Much of the same from Centipede, like the co-op, updates, and original score, remains the same. The same challenges are even there, but one unique element is the new ability of a massive web blast that’ll help players in a pinch—obtained by gathering cash from dead bugs.
Not A Fan of Retro on Epic Games Store?
Unfortunately, anyone who isn’t a big retro fan isn’t going to really have a lot of incentive on the week of March 3. It happens, but it’s not something to fret over. Unlike a bad PS Plus free game month, just as an example, fans don’t have to wait a full month for the next selection. These two games will rotate out on March 10, for something new that has yet to be revealed. If there’s any reasonable guess as to what that game is (or games are), it’s not likely retro.
Sometimes, Epic Games Store free titles share things in common, but they are never necessarily thematic. That’s to say that more retro games in March are unlikely, based on past patterns, so fans don’t have a long time to wait between these retro games and the March 10 game.
Epic Games Store users typically get a handful of free games every month.
