If you want to spend the balmy summer evenings of the upcoming weekend in front of your PC, you don't even have to spend money on exciting games. Steam and the Epic Games Store operators are again offering several games that can be tried out for free or kept permanently. The start is made by the build-up game "Frostpunk" on Steam. The mixture of survival, story and construction can be tested in its entirety without obligation until August 16. Instead of romantic South Seas or medieval settings, an icy end-time world awaits the player in "Frostpunk", where every decision can mean the difference between life and death. The Epic Games Store, on the other hand, offers "Rebel Galaxy", an open-world game in space. Here, players have to trade and compete against pirates. The game can be downloaded for free until August 19 and kept forever. Additionally you can check out the GameGator Store for some cheap games.
The Battle Royale veteran "PUBG: Battlegrounds" can also be played for free on Steam. The title still has many fans, so those interested don't need to worry about having enough players. The co-op shooter "Payday 2" can also be tried out this weekend without obligation. "Payday 2" puts the player in the role of bank robbers or police officers. Finally, the last free weekend is an old acquaintance: The multiplayer shooter "Battlefield 4" can be tried out without obligation until August 16, plus a free weapon bundle as a permanent gift. Although the title is already eight years old, the battles with tanks, helicopters and boats are still a lot of fun.
