A Total War Saga: Troy is out now, and you can get it for free

War totally continues today with the launch of A Total War Saga: Troy, the latest strategic rumble from Creative Assembly. The Saga subseries focuses on particular regions, in this case the Bronze Age dust-up round the city of Troy as told in The Iliad (I think it's an episode of The Simpsons?). Troy is initially an Epic exclusive but: this deal means the game is…

Grab a whole lotta Quake for free this weekend

Have you played Quake? The eldritch lords at RPS HQ don't let me write HYP posts, of course, but I thought I'd ask anyway. See, it's QuakeCon At Home this weekend, and Bethesda are giving away a seminal piece of shooter history - and every character in its arena-blasting descendant Quake Champions - for free 'til the end of tomorrow.

Phantasy Star Online 2 has finally arrived on Steam

It might've taken eight years for Phantasy Star Online 2 to make it to the West, but fortunately, the jump from the Windows Store to Steam only took the Japanese MMO a mere couple of months. Sonic Team's free-to-play anime romp has finally found a place on Valve's shelves, making it easier than ever to hop in and bash a load of goblins in a…

3 Out Of 10 is a weekly playable sitcom, free on Epic

We've got sitcoms based on game development, so hows about repaying the favour with a playable comedy series? That's the idea behind 3 Out Of 10, an interactive animated series from Mothergunship developers Terrible Posture Games. Debuting on the Epic Games Store today, each week should see the release of a new episode following the hijinks of a hapless gamedev studio trying to create their…

Hyper Scape leaves early access with its first season next month

It's a bit late to the battle royale party, but Hyper Scape is just about ready to leave open beta. Ditching the Twitch-drop invites to enter open beta earlier this month, Ubisoft's take on the massive last-person-standing deathmatch genre launches properly next month, kicking off its first season with a new weapon, new hack, limited-time modes and the almost-mandatory 100-tier battle pass.

Fantasy Strike goes free-to-play with two new fighters

It shouldn't cost money to beat up strangers. At least, so reckons Fantasy Strike, a stripped back fighting game from the folks at Sirlin Games, ditched its pricetag in an update earlier today. All modes and all characters - including two new lads Quinn and Onimaru - are now free to beat up without spending a penny, with a suite of cosmetics and a premium…

Yarntown brings Bloodborne to PC in a cutesy 16-bit style

Yarntown sounds like a really lovely time. Hearing just the name, I'd think of an adorable little village filled with houses made from yarn, held together with knitting needles. It's very much not that, however, it's actually a cutesy 16-bit version of FromSoftware's PS4 exclusive, Bloodborne, made by Max Mraz. It's an impressive feat, too - Max has recreated Bloodborne's very first area, Central Yharnam,…

Tropico 6’s city-building shores are free to visit all weekend

There are only so many times I can say "cor, wouldn't it be nice to travel again" in the pandemic-ridden hell year that is 2020. But I'm going to say it again here, because Tropico 6's sun-swept beaches are opening up all weekend. The irreverent, satirical city-builder is currently free to download and try over on Steam, with prices slashed on trips to the rest…

I woke up too early to enjoy the Oregon Country Fair In The Clouds

If there's a downside to living in the middle of the city, it's that fairs just really aren't a part of my life. But then, with the whole Covid-19 pandemic going on, it's not like there are many being held this year anyway. In place of their usual mud n' music happenings, however, the Oregon Country Fair In The Clouds has taken the 50-year-old folksy…

Bloody co-op romp Killing Floor 2 is free on Epic this week

Crikey, it's all gotten rather gruesome on the Epic Games store this week. Co-op slaughter-fest Killing Floor 2 makes its debut on the storefront today, heading up this week's free lineup alongside carceral break-out The Escapists 2 and lonely spacefarer Lifeless Planet. You know the drill - these three are free to grab 'til next Thursday, at which point they'll be replaced by fantasy dungeon-crawler…

Frog Fractions will become the Game Of The Decade this August

Have you played Frog Fractions? While it may seem an unassuming amphibious edu-game, Twinbeard's maths 'em up may be one of the most important games of the last decade. Unfortunately, it's one that's increasingly a pain to actually play. Today, Twinbeard "Sandwich Imagineer" Jim Crawford announced that the game's Steam release is just around the corner, gobbling up its own fraction of Steam this August.

Hard Lads is a short meditation on masculine fragility and deck chairs

Sometimes you've just gotta take off your shirt, light up a smoke, and get your best mate to smack you in the back with a stool. The latest game from Radiator 2 and The Tearoom creator Robert Yang, Hard Lads is a brief tale of alcohol, furniture, and cigarettes, all in service of adapting the viral tale of two English lads trying their hardest to…

Feature: RPS says goodbye to Priceless Play

Priceless Play – 20 June 2020

Hey there, Priceless Pals. A melancholy day! This will be my last Priceless Play and the last Free Games Roundup here on RPS. Woe! I have had the undeniable pleasure of writing about the weird niche corners of free games for just shy of two years now, and I have loved every minute of it. Even though I won't be here to tell you what…

The best Steam Festival demos: RTS and city builders

Since the Steam Game Festival: Summer Edition has so many demos in it, we've all run off to harvest our own little crop to recommend, picking different genres as our guiding principle. As ever, though, the concept of "genre" has tripped me up like a rake in the dark, and left me flailing to define what connects the six games below. I guess, if there's…

Nuts demo lets you spy on squirrels and their secrets

Squirrels: they're hiding something. No matter how cute they look, they're keeping something from us and maybe it's more than just food. Perhaps you'll see some of their secrets in the new demo for Nuts, a game about surveilling the goings-on of squirrels. By day, carefully place your cameras. By night, sit back to watch where the blighters go. It's a first-person puzzle game of…

Dimension-warping RPG Undungeon now has a free demo
