Now Playing: Why Vermintide Got 7/10 - The Lobby

Other deals on Steam this weekend include the boxing simulator Punch Club for $2.50, with its Deluxe edition--which comes with a soundtrack and artbook--going for $3.75. Campo Santo's Firewatch is discounted to $12, but you can get the game with its soundtrack for $15. The soundtrack on its own is $3.60. All of these deals last until Monday, November 7, at 10 AM PT.

Vermintide scored a 7/10 in GameSpot's review. Critic Scott Butterworth concluded, "Though the action is mostly mindless, its gruesome details and varied characters still make for satisfying gameplay. The loot system, while not as deep as it could have been, proves an intelligent addition to the Left 4 Dead formula. And the 13 levels provide enough variety that, with the right team, Vermintide remains entertaining for a solid handful of hours."

Firewatch also received a score of 7/10 in its review for its "visually splendid world" and "believable, endearing characters."
