Play Company of Heroes 2, Saints Row IV for free on Steam photo
Play Company of Heroes 2, Saints Row IV for free on Steam
by Jordan Devore

This weekend on Steam, both Saints Row IV and Company of Heroes 2 will be playable for free. If you like what you find and want to continue after 1:00pm Pacific on Sunday, which is when this promo ends, the titles are on sale to own for $19.99 and $13.59, respectively.

You surely don't need me to tell you these titles are worth the time it takes to download them, so I'll just say in the case of Company of Heroes 2 that all of the game's paid multiplayer commanders are also going to be unlocked during this free weekend.

Review: Company of Heroes 2: Victory at Stalingrad DLC
by Joshua Derocher

Victory at Stalingrad is paid DLC that's a part of the larger Turning Point update, which also includes new free multiplayer maps, the World Builder tools, four free commanders, and four premium commanders. The free stuff is great, so even if you don't want to buy more DLC for Company of Heroes 2, you will still find something new if you jump back into the game.

I really enjoyed the base game quite a bit, and it has added a lot of content since its release. It's also been patched up, balanced, and polished even further. Finally, the new content is here, and I can't wait to fail miserably at all of it.

EA cans free-to-play Command & Conquer

We'd like more Command & Conquer -- without the hooks of free-to-play digging into our skin, if at all possible. I guess it's not. Electronic Arts has canceled the new C&C, which has been playable in an alpha capacity...
