The Epic Games Store for PC continues its weekly giveaway. Some weeks are better than others, and this one is really really good: you can grab Into the breach for nothing, nothing, nada. Into the breach is a great turn-based strategy game, which we selected as one of the best games of 2018 (do not need graphics card).

Into the breach are often described as “giant robotic failures,” and that’s a really good way to sum it up. You control up to three robots at a time, moving around a very small turn-based grid, hitting giant alien bugs in the face. (You can shoot and zap them too, but the punches are great, as explained in the documentary Pacific Rim).

Different machines have different weapons, and it is possible to predict the movements of insects basic enough that they injure themselves or fall into environmental traps. In fact, as the stages of the game get more and more difficult, even your fully upgraded mechs will not be enough, and you will have to rely on the strategic positioning of the aliens to turn their strengths into weaknesses.

The punitive difficulty means you’ll probably have to reboot a few times, but thanks to a few sci-fi buzzwords, you can bring your best pilot with you in each new game and try out different combinations of a few dozen bots to find the best one. synergistic. planet defense strategy.

Try Into the breach. It’s free until Thursday, September 17 in the Epic Games store. It is also available on the switch or Steam (if you hate Epic) for a very fair $ 15.
