Latest Steam Giveaway
« on: April 05, 2018, 01:20 PM »
In the same spirit as the Latest GOG Giveaway thread, here's one dedicated to whatever game featured on Steam is free (to keep) if you claim it within the promotional window.

I'll start it off with what is being called a Weekend Giveaway for Crusader Kings II. Once you've claimed it, don't forget to nab the two DLCs the game has listed for free. One of them will automatically be claimed to your account. The other one you will need to manually claim.

Enjoy!

Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee and Yet Another Zombie Defense are both free for a limited time.

And if you like YAZD, there's an HD remaster which is currently 75% off ($0.99) for a few days.

I just found out that Stories: The Path of Destinies is free this weekend (meaning it probably ends within 24 hours or so).

I don't normally go for Early Access games these days, but Geneshift is free (to keep, permanently) if you claim it in the next couple of days:

https://store.steamp...pp/308600/Geneshift/

EDIT: Looks like it's essentially a demo. It's a limited, non-fully-featured version of the game.  :(

I believe its just the 'battle royale' component...

not sure how that works in a 2D shooter, but perhaps thats part of the fun...

Yes, but it seems even that is limited (emphasis added below):

The [complete edition] includes extra game modes, cosmetics, online co-op, and a full singleplayer campaign

So from the sounds of it, you can play online free-for-all PVP but you can't play online with any friends/team-mates. :(

According to this thread, Starpoint Gemini 2 is free on Steam if you claim it soon. I already have it from a previous giveaway and it isn't showing as free for me, so I'm not sure if the giveaway already ended. But it may be worth looking into to claim if you are interested.

Blast Zone! Tournament is an Early Access game which is being given away between now and the 16th.

It looks kind of like Bomberman.

For those that are interested in the Dyatlov Pass Incidentw, (a couple of mentions on DC here and here), the game Khalot is available free on Steam for a limited time.

Narrated by one of the most popular British actors, Sean Bean, Kholat is an exploration adventure game with elements of horror, inspired by a true event known as the Dyatlov Pass incident – a mysterious death of nine Russian hikers, which led to countless, unconfirmed hypotheses. The player will plunge directly into the boundless scenery of the inhospitable Ural Mountains with the task to find out what really happened. In the course of events, you may come across more speculations than expected...
