Fantastic sci-fi immersive simulation from Arkane. Mining Now free via Epic Games Store near two other great games. And we’ll talk about these games a bit later. But first, let’s talk about what does Mining so damn good.
Mining debuted in 2017 and was published by Bethesda. The adventure, developed by Arkane, stars Morgan Yu, a human trapped in a virtually dead space station filled with highly dangerous shape-shifting aliens. Don’t trust that cup on the desk in the office you just entered because it could be an alien in disguise. Eventually, you will also gain some of these abilities and be able to create powerful weapons and gadgets to counter the alien threat and learn the dark secret of what is really going on…which I won’t reveal here. Go play!
Mining free on the Epic Store until May 19th. But if you stumble upon this blog after this date, don’t worry. You can still take over Mining free if you have an Xbox Game Pass subscription. However you will get to it, a meal awaits you. This is one of the best games of 2017 and one of my favorite games of the latest generation.
What kind of game is it? Good, this is not a continuation of the 2K shooter 2006 Mining. Instead, the 2017 game is immersive sim (“imsim”), a strange genre that is hard to define and easy to spot. Often, imsims are played in first person and include many intertwining game systems that can work together in new but natural ways, allowing you to immerse yourself in the game world and play the way you want.
Imsim examples include Arkane disgraced row and System shock. Often these games let you play as a secretive pacifist, a bloodthirsty maniac, or something in between. And Mininglike many other imsims, it gives you countless possible ways to complete missions and objectives, making it one of the most replayable single player games.
If you win Mining and you find yourself wanting more check Lunar disaster extension, which is also included. It adds a brand new roguelike mode to the game, further enhancing the replay potential. Careful!

As for the other two freebies on the Epic Store, they aren’t that bad either. you can pick up Redoutdynamic futuristic racing game inspired by F-zero and Wipeout., in vain. You can also capture Jotun, a cool looking hand-drawn action-exploration game set in Norse mythology and with lots of Vikings. These Vikings are very popular in games right now, right?
Again, all of these games are free only on PC through the Epic Games Store and only until May 19th. So if you’re interested, don’t wait. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to relax and take a sip of coffee from this coffee mug on my desk, which… Wait a minute… I didn’t drink anything.
