It is quite common for the second largest PC gaming platform (behind Steam), the Epic Games Store, to offer free games (In fact, he’s been doing it for quite some time). Not that they are generous (which too), but rather that they do it for people to test them and buy their DLCs and expansions, which is where they get their money from. In any case, we are talking about complete games – in the absence of the DLC and expansions, of course – and that they are free for users, so it is always appreciated, right?

As for Hand of Fate 2, it is something newer, since it hit stores in November 2017, but it is not too demanding a game as you will be able to see below.
In the following table we have compiled the minimum and recommended system requirements for both games.
