Destiny 2 free for keepsies if you grab it now

Activision are giving Destiny 2 away for free right now, yours to keep if you grab it before November 18th. This is the base edition of Bungie's multiplayer looter-shooter, not including its expansions, but that's still a huge hunk of game. And I suppose handy as a demo to see if you want to keep up to speed by buying the DLC. I never played…

Kongregate’s new games store Kartridge is open for business

It feels like there's been a flurry of activity recently in PC games stores. Discord recently added a retail section to their multi-chat client, and now browser game hub Kongregate is getting in on the action. Kartridge is their new store, available in both browser and desktop app forms. It's mostly focused on smaller independent studios, as well as supporting a number of free downloadable…

Deltarune Chapter 1 is the free and surprising start of a new Undertale saga

The dust is now settling on Undertale creator Toby Fox's grand Halloween surprise. Disguised as a spookily-themed survey for a possible future project, Deltarune - a free, hours-long comedy RPG and first chapter in a new Undertale story - was foisted upon an unsuspecting internet. It was accompanied by a polite note asking that people don't discuss it openly until 24 hours had passed. Now I…

Battlerite Royale slashes its price and dives into a free week of play

Battlerite Royale - a last-man-standing spinoff from Stunlock Studios's arena brawler Battlerite - will eventually be free-to-play, but while it's in early access, you've got to pay to get in. Not today, or through the rest of the week - the game is free to try for the next four days, and a bit cheaper to buy in if it tickles your fancy. Our boy…

Hunt your friends in Murderous Pursuits, today’s Steam giveaway

It's hard to get a niche multiplayer game going, especially one that requires players to behave themselves. That's probably why Murderous Pursuits, latest backstab 'em up from Blazing Griffin (makers of The Ship) is free on Steam right now. Not just a free weekend (which it had done previously), but a 'grab now, keep it forever' deal. As with The Ship, it's a game of…

Helldivers reinforces for a free weekend offensive

Got friends free this weekend? Want to end those friendships spectacularly? Because there's nothing quite like 'accidentally' killing your pals with a turret dropped in from orbit in excellent co-op shooter Helldivers, which is free on Steam for the weekend. Developers Arrowhead have also buffed the game up a little for this event - calling the new version "A New Hell". The sharply satirical Starship…

The Russian underground of Metro 2033 should be your next stop, and it's completely free on Steam today. For the next twenty hours (give or take), just check out its Steam page, click to add it to your account and keep it forever. This is the original version of 4A Games's…

Feature: The best horrors from five years of Asylum Jam

Priceless Play – 20th October 2018

So often, it can feel like horror is preying on fears of mental illness. How many video games are set in abandoned psychiatric institutions? What about deeming antagonists “criminally,” or otherwise, “insane”? Sure, I love Until Dawn, but I don’t care for its takes on psychotherapy. I am put off by Outlast, despite its clever mechanics and tight design. Comstock’s House in BioShock Infinite somehow…

Halo Wars: Definitive Edition heads up a handful of Steam free weekends

It's the weekend for a lot of you already, so here's a little something free for the next few days. Four somethings, even. Five, if you've got a VR setup. There's probably a few more lurking around that I've missed, but there's a bundle of free weekends running concurrently on Steam right now: RTS spinoff Halo Wars: Definitive Edition, baseball fighter Lethal League, physics puzzler…

The cruel and unusual Halfquake mod trilogy returns on Steam

The latest Half-Life mod to resurface, repacked and polished on Steam is Halfquake Trilogy - defining 'masocore' well before I Wanna Be The Guy made it a genre. Halfquake is a trilogy of surreal and cruel puzzle-centric mods by Philipp "Muddasheep" Lehner and they're some of the most interesting maps produced for the original Half-Life. Featuring  striking, abstract environments, genuinely clever puzzles, some very stupid ones…

Shadow Warrior 2 is free on GOG right now

The rude, crude Shadow Warrior 2 is free to grab on GOG for the next two days. Flying Wild Hog's shooter is a big messy slab of old-school FPS'ing infused with painful jokes (which frequently made me giggle), some Borderlands-ish stat juggling, procedural encounter generation and lots of monsters and cyborgs to mulch. Adam Smith gushed profusely in his review, calling it "anarchic, excessive, ridiculous, occasionally spectacular…

Orwell is going free for keepsies for another few hours

Almost as if they want you to install their software as a backdoor to r00t your b0x0r and spill your secrets to The Man, Osmotic Studios are giving their dystopian surveillance 'em up Orwell: Keeping an Eye On You away for free for keepsies right now (again). Nab it on Steam to register it to your account within the next few hours and it'll be…

Tactical backstabber I’m Not A Monster infiltrates under the guise of a free weekend

I'm Not A Monster is mostly about mind-games, sometimes shooting stuff with lasers and best when you're a space-lizard chewing a friend's face off. Developed by Cheerdealers and released yesterday, it's a blend of XCOM-style tactics and parlour games like Werewolf. A crew of heroes try to rescue civilians from SPACE DANGER, but two of them are shapeshifting B-movie reptiles. Below, a launch trailer featuring…

Search the woods for kiddywinkles in lovely free game Knåddskogen

I've had a lovely virtual stroll through Swedish woods today, taking in the beauty and hurling naughty students. Knåddskogen is a wee free game about a teacher who must gather her students after they flee during a hike, vanishing off to climb trees, sleep, build bases, and generally be adorable in a naughty way. It's short, it's free, and it's pleasant, so chop chop, get…

The Crew 2 adds hovercraft and shifts gears for a free weekend and sale

Cars are rubbish, what with their tires and grip and unfortunate habit of sinking in water - hovercraft are clearly better, and ready to ride today in Ubisoft's sandbox drive 'em up The Crew 2. In the Gator Rush free expansion - out now - Ubisoft have added three kinds of hovercraft and a new set of events to drive them in, wherever land meets…

Feature: The cats, humanity's absolute best mate

Priceless Play – 22nd September 2018

I got two cats last month and I am obsessed with them. While I’m currently fostering them (and let me take this moment to suggest that you, too, foster some cats because it is life-saving) they are driving me insane. Because they’re, you know, cats. They run around at all hours of the night, they knock over my plants, and they always want to know…

A Hat In Time’s new DLC is free today and turns up the heat on an arctic cruise

A Hat In Time might play second fiddle to Super Mario Odyssey these days, but there's strong praise in that faint damning. Gears For Breakfast crafted a cheerful, bouncy little romp of a platformer, full of shiny gubbins to grab and strange characters to meet. It's just a little on the short and easy side - or was. Seal The Deal adds another story chapter…

Live three days of surreal plague-stricken hell in Pathologic 2’s free public alpha

Bleak, harrowing and frustrating are the first words I think of when Ice-Pick Lodge's Pathologic springs to mind - followed quickly by entrancing, alien and compelling. Originally Kickstarted as a remake, the now-reimagined plague survival immersive sim Pathologic 2 is shaping up to be something special. Not convinced? If you don't mind some bugs, you can try it out today. Earlier in development, Ice-Pick released The Marble Nest,…

Battlefield 1 goes cheap as chips and its DLC Premium Pass is free to keep this week

Battlefield 5's open beta is over, but the battle for objective points is eternal. As promised last week, EA have made the DLC Premium Pass for Battlefield 1 free today and for the next week. You'll need the game itself to use it, but it expands the (questionably) historical World War 1 FPS from 12 multiplayer maps to 26, featuring new classes, vehicles and weaponry.…
