Welcome back to another installment of our Steam free weekend coverage. We hope you’ve been having a safe and enjoyable past few weeks considering the Coronavirus. If you’ve been trying any of the free weekend games from the previous weeks, be sure to let us know what you thought. Last week saw games like Hitman 2016 and Gears 5 free for players, and it seems like the majority enjoyed that. This week though, looks to bring more games that are just as good if not better. Not only that, but there are some special offers in the form of DLC. Without further adieu, though, here’s everything you can play free this weekend.
Starting us off is Total War: WARHAMMER II from SEGA and CREATIVE ASSEMBLY. Total War: WARHAMMER II is a turn-based RTS game as part of the Total War franchise. You choose from several unique factions and go into battle in your fight for supremacy. The game takes place in two halves, with one being an open-world campaign and the other being intense battles across various landscapes. This is one of the more critically acclaimed RTS games in recent years, and it one solo players will want to try. You have until Sunday to give this game a go, along with a 66% off sale on Steam.
Northgard is another RTS on this list but with a more chill and Norse feel to it than Total War. From developer Shiro Games, play as one of many clans with their playstyles and buffs. You’ll fight your way to victory by either allying with other tribes or burning them to the ground. Or both, we’re not here to judge. The game offers some interesting locations to explore and colonize, along with a lot of depth. You can play the singleplayer campaign, Conquest mode, or go head to head in an online multiplayer game. This is an RTS for every kind of player, and you have until Monday morning to give it a try. If you like it, you can also get it at 50% off on Steam!
Borderlands Game of the Year Enhanced is the best way to play the original Borderlands. Featuring all the DLC released, there are many hours of content to enjoy. Not only that, but the game has been graphically enhanced to be more playable in the current day. Set on the fictional planet of Pandora, play as one of four vault hunters on a quest to open the illustrious Vault. Along the way, you’ll meet lots of allies but also scarier and scarier enemies. What sort of treasures will the Vault hide? It’s up to you to find out. You have the next 5 days to try out Borderlands GOTY Enhanced on Steam and can get it at a discount too.
And finally for our big showcases is that DLC we were talking about. In this case, both Surf N’ Turf and Too Many Cooks for Overcooked! 2 are now available free to keep. Too Many Cooks brings a bunch more chef skins to play as, including a unicorn with glasses and a pink alien. Surf N’ Turf, on the other hand, brings a host of new levels all themed around Summer. You’ll get new tools to use, new dishes to cook, and lots of Summer puns. Overall, it’s a fun DLC, and owners of Overcooked! 2 should give a go. The game’s also on sale, so those who don’t own it can get their hands on it at 40% off on Steam.
And now, to touch on all the indie games that you can claim completely free:
