Free games for the weekend: what to download on PC
Only a week left before the release of Resident Evil 4 Remake! If you don’t know what to do while you’re waiting, we’ve put together our traditional selection of free games for this weekend.
The Epic Games Store is giving away Warhammer 40,000: Gladius for free until March 23, a turn-based 4X strategy in a well-known setting. The Imperial Guard, Space Marines, Orcs and Necrons must fight for dominance of the planet Gladius Prime, corrupted by the energy of the Warp. To win, of course, you need to occupy new territories, study technologies, build fortifications and take possession of powerful artifacts. Each faction has its own story campaign, and with the purchase of the DLC, the Sisters of Battle and the Adeptus Mechanicus will join the conflict.
In addition, an attraction of unprecedented generosity has begun on Steam. Gearbox Software is giving away Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep: A Wonderlands One-shot Adventure for free until March 23rd. One of the best additions to Borderlands 2, where the heroes gathered for an enchanting game of Dungeons & Dragons, has become a standalone game. Fans of the series won’t find anything new, but if you’re unfamiliar with the franchise, A Wonderlands One-shot Adventure is a great opportunity to tap into the humor of the Borderlands universe in its best iteration.
Also available on Steam is LandTraveller, an open-world RPG inspired by Terraria. The game invites you to explore a colorful world in search of rare materials and equipment crafting recipes to create your own dream castle. True, the game is in early access, and its author said that due to life circumstances he was forced to suspend development: this is why LandTraveller became free.
Lawnarchy is an eccentric card game where players have to ruin their neighbor’s lawn in order to win a gardening community contest. To do this, you need to carefully monitor your lawn, brazenly steal other people’s gnomes, drive through the colors of rivals with a road roller and throw garbage over the fence. Lawnarchy has a charming visual design and supports not only 1v1 matches, but also three- or four-player free-for-all matches.
Finally, Lovebirb is an unusual hybrid of a rhythm game and a dating sim, where a simple sparrow goes in search of a soul mate. But in order to win the hand and heart of a fatal magpie or a fashionable owl, you have to read the dialogues and answer questions to the beat of the music. Many Steam users complain that Lovebirb’s rhythm element is even too complicated, but the nice graphics and sense of humor may make up for this shortcoming.
