    Wow releasing on consoles too! This truly was a brilliant and addictive game on 360! Would have sold a bunch on PC, not sure why they're giving it away but not arguing. Happy gaming 😊

    Requires you to make an Epic Games account and it's really slow since everyone is on it.

    Fantastic game. Really would love to see a sequel some day…the original was one of the best 360 games to be released.

    One of the best metroidvania style games out there. I still hope that they'll do the follow up some day.

  •  

    Great game!!

  •  

    Amazing game, highly recommend.

  •  

    Any one know if this a free license for the full game or will some kind of payment be required after the holiday period?

      Yes, once downloaded you can play permanently.

      Everyone else, we are increasing bandwidth as we speak. Please keep trying!

      so i beleive that is a yes

    Love the game
    but their epicgames servers are obviously pretty crap since its impossible to create an account without getting errors

  •  

    So if you click download…it downloads the installer for Epic Launcher…when you login to Epic Launcher….you….get nothing..just the promo html tile that the game is free.

      I closed out of the launcher then reopened and a tab for "Shadow Complex" was available along the top. There was an install option on that page. I'm at 50% downloading now and size at this point was about 500mb

  •  

    Guys don't bother trying this yet. They're either being hammered or completely not ready to actually give it out for free…

    No word on how big it is or how the free use works (limited time? etc.) so far.

    The epic loader was about 7mb to start and then another 80mb for the program.

    •  

      thats obvious since i can't even install the unreal engine.
      update* so clicking install didn't work. but as soon as i clicked the cross on the engine install thing it starts installing???
      strange

      you think they would have known better considering shadow complex was one of the most downloaded xbox arcade games.
      and people have been asking for a pc version as well as sequel for years

    •  

      Update: It's about 27mb for the intial downloader, another 80mb for the rest of it, and then about 1GB for Shadow Complex, which is apparently free for the rest of the year.

  •  

    So they are releasing the remastered version for console and PC next year but they are giving away the remastered PC version now? Great for us, but that doesn't seem to make much business sense.

    An FYI: if you are running Bidefender, disable its firewall and then it should work.

  •  

    OK they've fixed it all up now. Pity you need the launcher to do this, welcome another Origin/Steam/Greenman/Gamestop/etc. program to your system ;-/

    I mean obviously this is to get people using their installer/sales platform, but yet another one? Le Sigh.

    Still no word on when the free period ends, as I would have to imagine that it will, after the holiday, to push sales on console.

      it's free until end of the year only.

    •  

      The platform is used for downloading their content but is not the same as the others, it is more meant for the Unreal 4 development. It does sell modules for the SDK but not aimed at selling games.

    Not once has this website worked in the last week. WTF.

  •  

    Can you remove the launcher once it is done?
