The Saints Row freebies are accompanied by a sale on the entire franchise. Each game is 80 percent off, save for the most recent entry, Gat Out of Hell, which is 50 percent off. All of the DLC for The Third and IV are half price, too.

XCOM is also on sale for $7.49, as is its Enemy Within expansion. Other DLC packs are available for just a few bucks, or you can buy the Complete Pack (with the base game, Enemy Within, and the other DLC) for just $10--an especially good deal. Meanwhile, upcoming sequel XCOM 2 is now available for preorder on Steam.

Should you decide to purchase any of the free games, you'll be able to carry over your progress.

You can download the free games through their Steam pages, each of which is listed below:
