Next Week's Epic Games Store Free Game Revealed


This week’s freebies at the Epic Games Store just went live, and they are quite the pair. From now until April 9, you can pick up Gone Home and Hob free of charge. As usual, Epic also revealed next week’s freebie, Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments, a seriously underappreciated adventure game starring Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s ubiquitous detective. Crimes and Punishments will be free starting April 9 at 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET. You simply need a free Epic Games account to claim any Epic freebie, and it’ll be yours to keep forever.

Originally released in 2014, Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments is one of the many Sherlock games developed by Frogwares. While games that capitalize off of huge properties like Sherlock Holmes don’t always inspire a ton of confidence, Crimes and Punishments is a genuinely great adventure game.

Crimes and Punishments features six separate investigations that you must solve alongside your trusted sidekick Dr. Watson. One of the main gameplay mechanics is the deduction board, which lets you piece together clues from each case to come to your own conclusion. This allows for more than a handful of endings for each crime, and moral choices you can make after finding the culprit add even more layers to the story.

The game received an 8/10 in GameSpot’s Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments review. “Perhaps the best comment that I can make on the half-dozen cases featured in Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments is that they feel like lost short stories from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle himself. The whodunits are fascinating, with odd casts of characters and plausible mysteries that blend elements of the police procedural with the quirky and eerie atmosphere unique to Holmes and Watson,” critic Brett Todd wrote.

While you wait for Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments to unlock for free at Epic, don’t forget to snag this week’s free games. In addition to Gone Home and Hob, you can also claim Drawful 2 and Totally Reliable Delivery Service (until April 8). Epic isn’t the only storefront or publisher giving away games; we’ve rounded up every free game available right now.
