Jotun: Valhalla Edition is set to be the Epic Games Store’s next free offering beginning on December 5.
The Epic Games Store, nearing its first anniversary this December, features one or two free games every week. Right now, users can grab Rayman Legends for free from the digital storefront until December 6.
Jotun: Valhalla Edition is a top-down hand-drawn action-puzzle game from developer and publisher Thunder Lotus Games in which players control the Viking warrior Thora as she seeks to defeat the titular five Jotun to secure her way into Valhalla.
Our very own Samuel Gugliemo gave Jotun: Valhalla Edition an 8.0 when he reviewed it back in September 2016. He said that while it “features some of the most exciting boss fights in gaming mixed with lovely visuals and a decent story,” it was held back by a bit too much filler.
Jotun: Valhalla Edition is set to launch on the Epic Games Store on December 5, when it will become that week’s featured free game.
The Epic Games Store is in the midst of its Black Friday Sale, running from Nov. 22 to Dec. 2. Big discounts include Epic Store exclusive Borderlands 3 for $40.19 and Red Dead Redemption 2 for $47.99. Other digital storefronts such as GOG and Steam are also running their Black Friday sales now, with many of them running for a similar length of time as the Epic Store’s.
While Red Dead Redemption 2, RDR2 launched on PC on the Epic Games Store and a couple of other digital storefronts last month but will be coming to Steam on December 5.
Jotun first launched for the PC, OS X and Linux in September 2015, then as Jotun: Valhalla Edition for the Wii U, Xbox One and PS4 in September 2016 and the Nintendo Switch in April 2018.
