One of the best video games for 2019, Control, is free for PC in the Epic Game Store launchpad this week – and not the only one.
Control is a supernaturally colored action-adventure game in which you play as Jesse Faden, a member of a secret government agency that investigates paranormal events and artifacts. You explore a large, ever-changing government facility, unlocking new paths while gaining new forces and weapons. It’s basically like The X-Files meets Metroid Prime plus Half life, and it governs.
And right now, Control is completely free at Epic Games Launcher until 11 a.m. ET on June 17. Note that this is the base version of the game, released in 2019, not the full edition from 2020; again, you will need to purchase additional DLC content separately if you decide you like it enough to display the money.
How to download Control for free from the Epic Games store
