Kingdom Hearts, Axiom Verge 2, and more coming to Epic Games Store as exclusives

Epic on Thursday hosted a Spring Store Showcase, which revealed a new round of exclusives coming to the Epic Games Store this year.

The biggest news is that the Kingdom Hearts franchise is coming to the Epic Games Store on March 30. This is the first time the series has been available on PC, and it will be exclusive to the storefront. A trailer showed a few different games, including Kingdom Hearts III and the recently released Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory.

Indie 2D action game Axiom Verge 2 made a surprise appearance on the stream. The anticipated indie will be a PC exclusive on the Epic Games Store and is slated for a 2021 launch. News on the game has been sparse since it was announced during a Nintendo Indie showcase in 2019.

Looter slasher Godfall gets a new free update today. The Primal Edition of the game raises the current level cap and makes some overhauls to the game’s loot and UI.

Free-to-play games were a major focus during the short presentation. The stream showcased new updates to Warframe, Dauntless, Rogue Company, and more. Fortnite made a brief appearance, but only to show off its previously released Predator update.

Chivalry II got a major spotlight during the showcase ans is slated for a June 8 release. The medieval combat game will hold a closed beta from March 26 to March 29. Players can pre-order the game now for early access.

Other highlights include Binary Smoke, a new action-adventure game set in a dystopian future. Magic the Gathering MMO Magic: Legends made an appearance as well. The Epic Games Store exclusive game will receive an open beta on March 23.

Epic Games Store is currently running a sale where players can grab discounts on games like Cyberpunk 2077 and Star Wars Squadrons.

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.
