Red Orchestra 2, Dead Island: Riptide Get Free Steam Weekend
If you’re short on cash and looking for some free gaming fun this weekend, Steam (shocker, I know) is the place to be.
Tripwire Interactive’s underrated FPS Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad and its community-made expansion, Rising Storm, are free to download and play from now until Sunday at 1 p.m. Pacific. And if you’d rather kill the undead than your fellow digital man, Dead Island: Riptide is also free on Steam all weekend long.
As per Steam-free-weekend usual, there are also major sales if you decide to pull the trigger and buy after you try. The Red Orchestra Franchise Pack, including the first two games and Rising Storm, is 75% off, from $60 to just $15. Already have Heroes of Stalingrad? Grab Rising Storm alone for $10 – 50% off it’s standard $20 price tag.
Dead Island: Riptide is 66% off its usually $40 price and can be had for just $13.59. You can add its two DLC packs for just $2.36.
