Weekend PC Game Deals is where the hottest gaming deals from all over the internet are gathered into one place, every week, for your consumption. So kick back, relax, and hold on to your wallets.

EGS free games

It is Saturnalia and Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus that are free this week on the Epic Games Store, replacing the Fallout 3 promotion from last week.

Saturnalia arrived as a day-one release onto the Epic Games Store while also being free to claim this week. It is a rogue-lite horror experience that changes its mazelike village interior every time one of your protagonists dies. Meanwhile, Mechanicus is an XCOM-like turn-based tactics entry set in the 4K universe that has you commanding an Adeptus Mechanicus army on a newly discovered planet.

Both games are yours to keep if you add them to your Epic Games Store library before November 3. Coming up are copies of Filament and Rising Storm 2 as next week’s freebies.

Free Events

You get full access to the base game through November 1 with this promotion on Steam, letting you take the role of survivors or the crazed killer chasing them.
