What’s next? TheHunter’s Call of the Wild.
If you’re a fan of Metroidvania-style action games, then you’re in luck since both Guacamelee 1 and 2 are currently free to download and keep on the Epic Games Store.
If you need a primer, the original Guacamelee came out in 2013 and featured a lively blend of wrestling-inspired brawling and non-linear exploratory action, in which protagonist Juan Aguacate, suddenly endowed with luchador powers, sets out across a world inspired by traditional Mexican culture and folklore to rescue El Presidente’s child.
At the time of its release, Christian Donlan of Eurogamer wrote, “Guacamelee has genuine heart and a blazing desire to put on an excellent programme, like the very best luchadores in business.”

For free, alongside 2018’s Guacamelee 2, which built upon the original’s winning formula, Legendary is distributing Guacamelee Super Turbo Championship Edition, an enhanced version of the first video game that includes the same additional powers, fresh levels, and more opponents. In particular, by using a chicken.
Until next Thursday, June 22nd, you may add Guacamelee Super Turbo Championship Edition and Guacamelee 2 to your collection at no cost from the Epic Games Store. Freebies will then be distributed for TheHunter: Call of the Wild and Idle Champions of the Forgotten Realms.
