Epic Holiday Gift for December 17th: Costume Quest 2!

Epic Games’ Santa Claus roleplay continues with another new game, free to claim for 24 hours! Today we’ve got Costume Quest 2, a game that – judging by my own library – has been offered for free before. Regardless, if you missed it the first time, now’s a good time to grab it! Let’s see what Costume Quest 2’s all about.

The Basics

Costume Quest 2 (released in 2014) is a quirky little game that seems to have found its way out of Halloween and into Christmas. The single-player RPG adventure has you assuming the role of either Wren or Reynold, the protagonist twins. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to stop a dentist names Dr. Orel White from destroying Halloween all the while traversing the timeways: In the past, before your hometown was founded, and in the future, a dental dystopia. All of this horror just because Halloween and its candy is bad for your teeth!

The gameplay is a mix of exploration, quests, trick-or-treating and monster fighting in turn-based combat. The ‘costume’ in the quest refers to how you battle monsters, which is by donning costumes and becoming gigantic. Aight.

It’s important to note the plot picks off right after the end of the first game’s DLC, Grubbins on Ice, so if you’re looking to dive deep into CQ2, it might be worth giving the first entry (and its DLCs) a shot.

The game is free to claim only until tomorrow, roughly 23 and a half hours from now, so grab it while you can! Epic also likes to provide a hint for the next game to become free, so if you want to try decoding the following gift box, let us know what the next title may be:
