'Oxenfree' (ALL) Will Be Free On Epic Games Store Next Month

by Rainier on March 7, 2019 @ 5:04 p.m. PST

Inspired by classic cult films like Stand by Me and Poltergeist, Oxenfree is a supernatural adventure game about a group of friends who unwittingly open a ghostly rift.

Rites of passage and Senior year traditions set the stage for a group of friends sneaking off to Edwards Island, an old military outpost with no phone service. The game plays out over one night, as a group of high school students on an annual school trip to a decommissioned military island decide to “miss” the last ferry back and spend the night on the island. Players will take on the role of Alex as she brings her new stepbrother Jonas to an overnight party gone horribly wrong.

The festivities are framed by a dangerous sneak to a forbidden beach, celebrating with friends and navigating prickly situations with enemies. But the night takes a horrifying turn when you unwittingly open a ghostly rift spawned from the island’s cryptic past. How you deal with these events, your peers, and the ominous creatures you’ve unleashed is up to you.

Once Slime Rancher, the current free game on the Epic Games Store, has run its course it will be up to Oxenfree, which will gratis starting on March 7 until March 21, 2019.
