Great news gamers, IGN has named Uppercut Games’ Epoch 2 its Free Game of the Month. This is one of the first times that the game, which normally retails for $4.99, has ever been made available at no cost.

For those unfamiliar with the title, Epoch 2  features intuitive, gesture-based controls and gorgeous visuals. It continues the post-apocalyptic storyline of the original, and offers new weapons and gameplay modes…


Here’s a little background on the game’s story:

EPOCH has trekked across a war-ravaged country to find the one person he was programmed to protect: the Princess, Amelia. Now he must follow a final, desperate lead to reach her, with the two warring robot armies of Omegatroniks and Alphetekk standing in his way. But what surprises await EPOCH when the Princess is finally located? And what will she make of the world she wakes up to?

And a list of some of its more notable features:

  • Control your character with intuitive finger swipes designed specifically for touch-screens. Make split-second tactical decisions, take cover, select targets, dodge incoming fire, utilize special abilities, and launch countermeasures!
  • Battle escalating waves of robots and bosses in arena-style combat, and upgrade yourself with pieces scavenged from the ruins! Configure your robot with dozens of weapons, armors, boosters and counters.
  • New weapons, items and features expand your arsenal and give you new strategies to employ. Equip your Weakening Grenades, risk a Fast Reload for bonus damage, or head-shot an enemy robot with your Sniper Rifle? New levels extend and expand EPOCH’s ability to fight, move and dodge. New Play Modes provide tougher challenges for the elite EPOCH player.

And of course we have a video showing gameplay:

If you’re still not convinced, you can read our full review of Epoch 2 here. But if you ask me, any game that uses the latest version of the Unreal Engine 3—the same that powers Infinity Blade 3—is worth grabbing for free.

If you’re interested, head on over to IGN’s website and grab a promotion code. The offer is available in 44 countries.

Thanks Leonard!

    How can I get the infinity blade 3 for free help

    • Christian Mejía

      It isn’t free. He said that “any game that uses the latest version of Unreal Engine 3-the same that powers Infinity Blade 3-is worth grabbing for free.” It’s not infinity blade it’s Unreal Engine 3 that Epoch 2 uses that is worth grabbing for free.
