Although the deal does not cover the Steam or console versions of the game, those interested in taking RiME for a spin on their Windows PCs can grab it for free from the Epic Games Store. This offer will expire on May 30, when City of Brass will replace it as a new Epic Games Store freebie.

RiME was released in 2017 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. This adventure puzzle game follows a boy's journey on a mysterious island, where he is guided by a fox-like spirit in solving various puzzles across five large levels. Now, those who would like to try this title — or add it to their game library — can grab it for free via the Epic Games Store.

The only problem is that RiME is only free to grab via the aforementioned store. Steam players get no discount, and the same happens to console players. On Steam, RiME is priced at US$29.99 (strange enough, European players who would like to buy the game have to cash out almost 30 percent more — EUR€34.99). Console players get to pay about the same, depending on the retailer and market.

RiME comes with support for quite a few languages: English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Arabic, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese - Brazil, Russian. Rated PEGI 7, it requires at least Windows 7 64-bit, an Intel Core i5-2310 or AMD FX-6300 processor, 4 GB of memory, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti or AMD Radeon 6950, and 7.7 GB of free disk space.  

Those interested can add RiME to their Epic Games Store library until the end of the month, when its place will be taken by City of Brass — a first-person title launched in May 2018 that was inspired by the Arabian Nights franchise.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
