Steam wants you to stay indoors – that’s why it’s hosting a free weekend for two genuinely great games, both of which are also on sale.
Rainbow Six Siege and Ark: Survival Evolved are both available to download and play in their entirety with no restrictions until Sunday at 9pm (UK time).
If you get a taste for either title, both will then be on sale until Monday 6pm, reduced by a generous 50 percent, with Ark at £11.49 and Rainbow Six at £14.99 – don’t say Steam never did anything nice for you.
To play either game, all you need is a Steam account and a ‘can-do’ attitude. The former is a definite requirement, the latter is just courtesy really.
Rainbow Six Siege is also available for free on Xbox One this weekend, so you can enjoy a weekend full of dinosaurs and terrorists.
Unfortunately we’ve still yet to see a game that throws us into battle with terrorist dinosaurs, but maybe if I play both at the same time I’ll come close to the experience I’m craving.
Two great games, and only one weekend in which to enjoy them – will you attempt to sweat one, or give a modest amount of time to both? Decisions…
