This week’s free games on the Epic Game Store is a retro classic brought to life in modern times and another retro-inspired game. First, we have Sonic Mania, a game produced in celebration of Sonic the Hedgehog's 25th anniversary, as it follows our main heroes Sonic, Tails and Knuckles as they defeat their nemesis Doctor Eggman, through many levels - some new and some are redesigned from past games! Secondly, we have Horizon Chase Turbo, an arcade racing game inspired by the great racing hits of the 80's and 90's: Out Run, Lotus Turbo Challenge, Top Gear (SNES), Rush, among others.
Sonic Mania and Horizon Chase Turbo will be free on the Epic Games Store from 4pm BST on 24th June 2021 to 4pm BST on 1st July 2021.
