Epic Holiday Gift for December 15th: Bloons TD 6!

The time of weekly freebies is over for Epic Games, as the holidays are bringing us one free game to claim each day! Our free game for the 15th of December is none other than BloonsTD 6! Let’s take a quick look at what this game’s about.


The Basics

Bloons TD 6 is a tower defense game, meaning your objective is to annihilate waves of enemies using well-placed towers before they reach the end of their path. The genre was revitalized in the early 2000s with custom maps like Element TD and Gem Tower Defense in Warcraft III, and there’s now plenty of equally creative and endlessly fun games to choose from. Bloons TD 6 is one of the biggest names in the franchise, scoring a 10/10 on Steam and getting the ‘overwhelmingly positive’ reviews out of a massive ~197,000 reviews.

The game more than just towers and upgrades, though: Heroes, active abilities, co-op boss events, cosmetics, the list is long. Here’s some of the big features:

  • 4-player co-op.
  • Odysseys, a sort of gauntlet of 3-5 maps connected in theme, rules and rewards.
  • A robust content browser that lets you browse others’ Challenges or Odysseys or create your own.
  • 22 towers, each with three upgrade paths and unique active abilities.
  • 13 heroes, 20 signature upgrades, 2 special abilities (I know this sounds like random numbers if you haven’t played the game, but it’s quite a lot of stuff!).

The Mega Holidays Update

… just came out! If you’ve played the game before, this’ll certainly be more exciting than if you’re new, but regardless, it goes to show that a game launched in 2018 is still receiving updates; that’s always a good sign. Here’s the patch notes:

  • Battle against the awesome resistances and immunities of The Armored Behemoth, Dreadbloon!
  • Uncover the tower-buffing placements on the new Beginner map, One Two Tree!
  • Slay the Bloons in festive spirit with the new Captain Churchill skin, Sleigh Churchill!
  • Trophy store items, quality of life improvements, balance changes and much more!

Grab Bloons TD 6 quickly, for it’s getting replaced by another game in 23 hours! We don’t know what’s going to come up tomorrow, but rest assured it’ll probably be as much of a banger as this one!
