Epic Games Store Holiday Sale - Get Into The Breach for Free

The Epic Games Store Holiday Sale 2019 is now underway, offering discounts on loads of games, and a $10.00 off coupon for all participants. On a related note, the Epic Games Store now offers Into The Breach for free to keep, the first of the 12 freebies they recently promised. It seems the plan is to offer these one at a time, so this is free until tomorrow, at which time it will be replaced by another giveaway. Here's the quick description of this Roguelite turn-based strategy game from the creators of FTL:
Control powerful mechs from the future to defeat an alien threat. Each attempt to save the world presents a new randomly generated challenge in this turn-based strategy game from the makers of FTL.

As much as I absolutely adored FTL (especially the 'Advanced' edition, along with some of the major mods, like the one that lets you free roam indefinitely and gives you tons of more weapons and gear to buy), I just couldn't get into..uh, Into The Breach. I dunno why, it just didn't grab me. Maybe I didn't understand the rules correctly? Was I the only one?

EGS :
Very interesting the $ 10 discount coupon you get for **each** game that costs $ 14,99 or more (no DLC included).

"We Give You Another $10 Epic Coupon After Every Eligible Purchase"

Wot ! Damn, now I wish SW Fallen Order was $ 14,99 and not $ 12,44

In passing I only saw World War Z at $ 14,99 so you can get it for $ 4,99.
Need to search for more at that magic price...

Will Bloodlines 2 be already available on January 1 before 11 AM EST allowing to get a last minute coupon ?

I'm in the same boat... I have over 500 hours in FTL, but I never bought this one because it looked boring. I'll give it a try now that I have it, but I also passed back when it was $2 so it's not about the price- I've just heard enough people say that it is actually fun even if it's nothing like FTL.

I adore this game. It’s amazing... but brutally difficult. FTL is a cakewalk compared to this. Get into it people.

Don't buy Phoenix Point whatever you do as it's now on XGP.

Been playing for an hour so far. Feels like an updated Xcom. So far, so good - though it did have one crash so far.

Did they ever confirm this is the last batch of freebies or not? I can't remember if that was just a rumor or they were actually not doing free games in 2020. Not complaining either way, just curious. Into The Breach I already have on Steam but its a great game.

This is a very different game than FTL, but also brilliant in its own way. That said, I have a lot more time in FTL.
Easy mode in Into the Breach is equivalent to easy mode in FTL.

$10 coupon is nice. I grabbed The Division 2 for only €4.99 which seems like the right price for just playing through the single player (zero fuxx given about "dark zones" or whatever the multiplayer garbage is called).

Beyond Two Souls for 7 bucks! Since I sold my PS3, I think I'll get this. Only finished it once, and that was a long time ago.

The EGS sale is way more exciting than Steam's. That 10 bucks coupon is sick. Subnautica Below Zero for 6 bucks had me buy an EA game. I don't buy EA games.

Same. I have over 600 in FTL. Over 400 in the 2 new XCOMs combined. But this didn't capture me.

In truth, all I did was the tutorial mission, which isn't really giving it a chance. I'll get back to it some day. But, there's so much more FTL to play. I still haven't won with every ship on Hard!

YEAH, - $10 coupon right away to spend on anything that is $14.99 and up , plus you get another $10 for any purchase ??

SO I can get World War Z for $4.99 ( using the initial $10 coupon) .? ... and I get another $10 coupon for spending the 4.99 .?

RINSE-LATHER-REPEAT ? You can keep getting a few decent games for only $4.99 ?..if I am reading all this correctly ?


Oh, if they only had the gifting up & running !!! Some people would be getting a couple decent games for $4.99 for Christmas ....

After a few missions you'll realise how clever the game is.

Into the Breach has a bunch of squads to unlock and some of them will really click while you will hate others. It's a subjective thing so sometimes people will only really "get" the game once they unlock their favorite. The game really punishes you for mistakes but it is much more fair overall than FTL which had some seriously annoying RNG issues at times. There are few situations you can't think your way out of if you're careful.

ITB might be my favorite game of all time, though it took me a few weeks of jury duty and associated 3 hour commute per day with it on my switch to realise it.

It's so, so perfect.

I enjoy ITB gameplay, it's actually amazing that every level seems "winnable", but prior mistakes (from previous levels) by the player do compound, and losses feel more self-inflicted than simply facing overwhelming enemies.

I just wish it had the humor of FTL... and the personality that ‘choose your own adventure’ decision gave room for.

Still good!

Yeah exactly glaze. It gets compared to other TBS games but I find it more like playing chess with mechs. Almost every situation is winnable but your fuckups do more and more damage to your overall campaign as you go.

I really like that it's a short game too, you can do an entire campaign in an hour or two, its intended to be replayed.
