Another free game has been added to the Epic Games Store for May: Death Coming. The game will be available from May 7-14 — the only requirement is that players turn on two-factor authentication.

Death Coming developer Next Studios describes it as a “non-linear puzzle game where you must harvest human souls Final Destination-style.” It was originally released in November 2017.

But this week, it’s Amnesia: The Dark Descent from developer Frictional Games and Crashlands from Butterscotch Shenanigans that are available for free — with the two-factor authentication requirement, too — from April 30 to May 7. These two games are quite different; Crashlands is a colorful action game that’s described as “overflowing with sass.” Meanwhile, Amnesia: The Dark Descent is a dimly lit survival horror game. Crashlands was originally released in 2016. Amnesia: The Dark Descent was released in 2010.

Epic Games has been offering free games on its Epic Games Store since 2019, and kept on with that practice into 2020. On Tuesday, the company announced a limited-time barrier between players and the free games: two-factor authentication. Epic Games is encouraging players to enable the extra security measure, but only until May 21.
