Valve's dominant games distribution platform, Steam, is no stranger to drastically lowering the price of virtual copies of video games. However, what is surprising is when Steam starts giving away games at 100% off, such as this weekend.
If you're interested, you can grab yourself a free copy of Little Nightmares until May 31.
How Do You Get a Free Little Nightmares Copy?
The 2017 horror platformer, Little Nightmares, usually sells for $30. At full price, it is absolutely worth it. Tarsier Studios' grotesque and horrifying take on what initially looks like a child-friendly game even received an equally terrifying sequel in Little Nightmares 2, with the kind of ending that you might find yourself having difficulty wrapping your head around.
Just don't forget that you can only get a free Little Nightmares copy until May 30 at 10:00 AM PT or 1:00 PM ET, so make haste. Otherwise, you'll be kicking yourself for not having grabbed the opportunity to get a free title from Steam, of all places.
As if you needed another reason to get a free Little Nightmares copy, Steam spices its deal up a little by offering another title. Although Company of Heroes 2 might not be as well-received or as recent as Little Nightmares, the 2013 real-time strategy is still very much well worth your time. Not to mention, it comes free until May 31 with the Ardennes Assault DLC included.
Altogether, these two games should tide you over for at least an entire weekend. However, we wouldn't be surprised if you fell in love with the Company of Heroes 2. Some people have played the real WW2-based RTS title for years and have never gotten bored of it.
Steam's free offering is just one of the many free games that's available this week. One of its competitors, the Epic Games Store, lets gamers claim a free copy of Among Us for this week. And, while it's not technically free, PlayStation Plus subscribers can get themselves copies of games like Star Wars: Squadrons and Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown in June.
