From December 17th to the end of the year, Epic Games are giving away a free game every day on their Epic Games Store.

Each day at 4pm GMT the game will change and the next one will be revealed.


Day 4 Free Game

It has been revealed that Defense Grid will be the free game for December 20th.

Here is some information about the game if you've never heard of it before.

Defense Grid: The Awakening is the ultimate tower defense game that appeals to players of all skill levels. A horde of enemies is invading, and it's up to the player to stop them by strategically building fortification towers around their base. The controls are intuitive and the gameplay is deep — the special attacks and properties of each tower work together to provide many ways to succeed.
There are approximately 8 hours of gameplay in the main story line, and many additional hours of play in challenge modes that give players unique starting conditions and objectives. Each game level is very replayable, and can be solved in many different ways, with increasing rewards for improved efficiency.
Defense Grid: The Awakening has 20 unique environments, each with a different placement of roads, tower build locations, and open areas to plan a strategy around.
Over the course of the game, players battle 15 different enemy types that become increasingly stronger, and employ a variety of strategies in an attempt to bypass the player's defenses. As the levels progress, the enemies become tougher and more difficult to defeat.
There are 10 different tower types with 3 levels of capability each. Each tower has unique trade offs that affect ideal placement, such as line-of-sight attack or ballistic trajectory fire. Some towers improve other nearby towers, and some are ideal at specific locations, such as a rear guard tower that unleashes a devastating attack

Defense Grid has a 81/100 score on Metacritic, so pretty good, with none of the reviews being negative.


If you're a fan of tower defense games then there's no reason not to try it.

And if you're not, try it anyway because its free.
