Watching Invincible Season 2? Pick up this free game on the Epic Games Store
Atom Eve flies in Invincible Presents: Atom Eve.

The second half of Invincible season 2 is airing weekly on Amazon Prime right now, and one of the new free games on the Epic Games Store perfectly complements it. Between now and March 28, you can get Invincible Presents: Atom Eve for free on the Epic Game Store.

Invincible Presents: Atom Eve was released last November and is a visual novel RPG hybrid following the titular superhero. Drawing from both the comics and TV show, it tells her coming-of-age story, interspersing a lot of story-changing player choices and turn-based RPG battles along the way. Invincible is an IP ripe for video game adaptation, yet very few titles based on it exist. Considering that this is one of the only Invincible games made available on PC and that you snag it for free just for having an Epic account, it's well worth picking up.

This is happening as part of a wider Capcom Publisher Sale taking place across major platforms. While titles like Street Fighter 6 are also discounted, picking up Dragon Dogma: Dark Arisen right now makes the most sense, as its sequel is right on the horizon. Dragon's Dogma is a fantastic RPG with exhilarating combat and unique ideas like its pawn system that lets you venture out with characters that your friends created. Dragon's Dogma 2 seems like it will only expand on these ideas, so it would be wise to familiarize yourself with the foundation it's building on is.
