Looks like the Epic Store’s free game program is not going to stop any time soon. With Fortnite money, they are aggressively buying games and give them away for free on their storefront to compete with Steam. Furthermore, all the games that they have given away are all highly rated titles – unlike most giveaway sites that showcase all random indie low effort titles.

The main cast of Syndicate

Action-adventure Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate and Online Card game Faeria are going to be next week’s giveaway, replacing this week’s Kingdom Come: Deliverance and Aztez. The giveaway would last for exactly one week, from Feb 21 to Feb 28. Check the Epic Games Store now.

Large scale brawl would be a common sight in this game

While Syndicate was no Assassin’s Creed 2 or Black Flag, it is still pretty decent amongst the old school style AC games. The game was actually received pretty well, especially after the failure of its predecessor, Unity. It is the last Assassin’s Creed game with the original style before Ubisoft turned the series into just another grindy open-world RPG.

The events of the game are set in London, with players step into the shoes of two protagonists, Jacob and Evie Frye. The two siblings are the leaders of a revolt against the ruling classes and the hidden Templars faction to free London. The two protagonists are switchable during the open-world section – with Evie being Stealth-based and Jacob being Force based. Ubisoft is rather stingy with their high profile games, as they rarely go on deep sale on Steam. With Syndicate being free on Epic like this, it is very likely that its predecessors might join the lineup soon.

The free card game Faeria is not half bad

The other game is Faeria, a highly free-to-play friendly card game. Based on whats advertised on its Steam page, it is possible to earn all 300 cards in the game in less than 50 hours.
