This Steam Game Is Free To Play All Weekend, More Great Deals Are Also Available

Battalion 1944 is free all weekend, while Devil May Cry 5 and Skyrim VR are among those discounted.


Steam almost always has something on sale, and this week, there's another free weekend and discounts on some true gems. Devil May Cry 5 and the DMC series is on sale, in addition to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR, Sniper Elite 4, and Cuphead. Just Cause 4 and the rest of its series is also discounted.

In addition to all the sales, Battalion 1944 is free for everyone to play until Sunday, and if you enjoy your time with it, you can grab it for $10 USD / $12.50 CAD / £8 until October 8. Published by Square Enix, Battalion 1944 is a 5v5 infantry-based multiplayer shooter, more similar to Call of Duty than Battlefield. You can grab the game itself or pick it up in the Red Sun Edition bundle, which includes an exclusive M1 model, ten Red Sun chests, and the digital soundtrack.

If you're looking for a different flavour of multiplayer for this weekend, then Hunt: Showdown is also on sale. This monster-hunting first-person shooter pits you and a partner against several other teams trying to banish the target beast first. Other players aren't your only enemy though, as zombies and other creatures populate the map. You can pick it up for $32 USD / $43.20 CAD / £28.80 until October 7.

See our picks of the best deals below. However, this is only a fraction of what's on sale, so be sure to check out Steam for the rest of the great game deals.
