Ark: Survival Evolved is a first-person adventure survival game with a pre-historic twist.

“Stranded on the shores of a mysterious island, you must learn to survive,” reads the official description.

“Use your cunning to kill or tame the primeval creatures roaming the land, and encounter other players to survive, dominate… and escape!”

The game only has a 70% score on Metacritic, but it’s managed to build quite the following on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, meanwhile, is a looter shooter with an 82% score on Metacritic.

“Shoot and loot as you explore the mayhem-filled world of Pandora in Borderlands 2 and the lunar madness of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel in Borderlands: The Handsome Collection,” reads the official description.

“Experience the award-winning FPS-RPG series, including its bazillions of guns, trademark cooperative gameplay, and all bonus add-on content, with high performance like never before on a new generation of consoles.”

And speaking of free game downloads, Epic has just announced plans to give Total War Saga: Troy away for free, but only for a limited time.

Launching on August 13, Total War Saga: Troy will be available free of charge for 24-hours on the Epic Games Store.

“A Total War Saga: Troy will reconstruct one of the greatest stories ever told,” reads the official description. “Inspired by Homer’s Iliad, TROY will let you forge a heroic legacy in the late Bronze Age, the furthest back in time the Total War franchise has ever travelled.

“Homer’s Iliad is rich with myth, legends, gods and monsters. TROY casts these stories through a historical lens to consider what might have really happened but ultimately lets you decide which heroes will fall in battle and which will be immortalised in legend.

“The battlefields will tremble under the feet of renowned warriors like Achilles and Hector but it will take more than brute force alone to lay claim to the legendary city of Troy.

“You will need to deftly manage a barter economy, conduct diplomacy among friends and foes, and curry the very favour of the Gods themselves before etching your name in the annals of history.”

The upcoming Total War release will remain an Epic Store exclusive until it launches on Steam and other PC platforms in August 2021.
