Rocket League’s car kickabout goes free next week

Rocket League is almost, finally free. A little over 5 years after its debut, videogames' favourite vehicular footy match is going free-to-play and moving to a new home on the Epic Games Store next Wednesday, September 23rd. It's leaving Steam to do so, sadly - but if you pick up the keys within a month of its Epic debut, you'll snag a free $10 to…

Remedy celebrate turning 25 by making their bloody debut free

Quick, I say Remedy, you say... well? If you said Death Rally and not Max Payne or Control, you're either a massive clever-clogs or you looked at the header of this story. To commemorate the studio's 25th birthday, the developers are making their very first game free to keep forever. Great news, if you're into bloody car combat racers from the grindhouse depths of 1996.

Co-op RTS DwarfHeim will launch in early access in October, and gets a new demo today

Pineleaf Studio today announced an early access launch date of October 22nd for DwarfHeim, the intriguing cooperative RTS where players take on different roles. You'll need someone in charge of your army, naturally, though you'll need a town to support that army, but how will you build a town without miners? Division of labour is the answer, splitting tasks across players who'll need to work…

The Garden Of Earthly Delights turns Age Of Empires into an animal chatroom

Towns burn, troops gather, armies are on the move. But who'll consider the wildlife left behind when civilizations go to war? Following their work on mixed-reality deathmatch futures, SCRNPRNT's The Garden Of Earthly Delights is a free online chatroom for the animals of Age Of Empires 2, letting them hang out amidst the fires of a low-res warzone.

Vlambeer’s parting gift is unfinished tower defence FFFLOOD

Vlambeer are dead. Almost, at least. The Dutch indie duo may have gone their separate ways, but they'll stick it out to release one last game, frenetic puzzle-shmup Ultrabugs. But it's their second-to-last game that may be most interesting, however, with an unfinished build of roguelite tower-defense FFFLOOD finding its way onto Itch earlier this week.

Once more, Into The Breach is free on the Epic Games Store

Thursday's rolled in once again, which means it's time for another giveaway on the Epic Games Store. This week, turn-based stomper Into The Breach is dropping in for free. It's had its moment in the spotlight before - as one of the platform's 12 free days of December 2019 - but those time-traveling mech rascals are trying their luck with another timeline, delivering some stellar…

Elusive fox adventure Tunic is playable this weekend

It's been a minute, eh Tunic? For as long as I've been paying attention, Andrew Shouldice's sharp, foxy roll n' slash has been hiding in the bushes. Ever-present, yet always skittering just out of sight. But while Tunic may be no closer to an eventual release, you can play a bit of it right now thanks to a free Gamescom demo.

Hitman and Shadowrun are free on the Epic Games Store

Two different illicit gig economy experiences are yours for free this week on the Epic Games Store, which is currently giving away 2016's stealth assassination game Hitman and a collection of the Shadowrun cyberpunk fantasy RPGs. Sure, basically you're being paid to kill and rob people in both, but you'll go about it in different ways.

D&D Map Sketcher is a dungeon designer with Ikea sensibilities

If evil lairs came in flat-packed boxes, they'd probably look a lot like this. D&D Map Sketcher might not give its dungeons quirky Swedish nicknames, but Daniel Fernández Marqués' do-it-yourself dungeons have already won me over - offering a delightful free browser toy with ambitions to have a place in every TTRPG group's toolbox.

Feature: You spin me right round

Family is like a free version of Obra Dinn but for fake 80s music

Having gone out with one of those lads while I was at uni, I instinctively react to terms like "shoegaze" like a startled deer who can't decide whether it's safer to run, or stay very, very still and hope to be left alone. I was forced into action by Family, though, which is a free game you can get from Itch right this very second.…

Apex Legends is mothballing the World’s Edge train next season

It's a dark day when not even Apex Legends can invest in public transport. Next week's new season of high-speed murdersports is bringing an infrastructure overhaul to World's Edge. But while concrete monstrosities and whopping great rocketships have been plonked all over the Icelandic arena, the criminals at Respawn have shut down the region's fantastic train network. Guess I'll walk to my next high-stakes gunfight,…

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…
