Day eight of Epic’s 12 Free Games Event and FTL: Faster Than Light is celebrating its debut on the Epic Games Store by going completely free.

FTL: Faster Than Light is a “spaceship simulation roguelike-like” that sees you boarding your ship and embarking on an adventure through a randomly generated galaxy.

You can claim your game for free either through your browser or through the Epic Games Launcher. An Epic Games account is required to pick up your free title. You don’t need to give any payment information to Epic.

In FTL you experience the atmosphere of running a spaceship trying to save the galaxy. It’s a dangerous mission, with every encounter presenting a unique challenge with multiple solutions. What will you do if a heavy missile barrage shuts down your shields? Reroute all power to the engines in an attempt to escape, power up additional weapons to blow your enemy out of the sky, or take the fight to them with a boarding party?

FTL: Faster Than Light will be available for the low low price of absolutely free on the Epic Games Store until December 27th at 4pm GMT. You can claim it for free by following the link here.

Make sure you check back in tomorrow to see what’s up for grabs on day nine!
