Blade & Soul, the upcoming martial arts inspired MMORPG from NCSOFT, will be launching in Europe on January 19th 2016, but ahead of that they will be running a closed beta test weekend between Friday 18th December (from 6pm GMT) to Monday 21st December. It's the last chance to sample the game before it goes live, and the kind folks at NCSOFT have handed us a bunch of beta keys for the upcoming test. You can learn more about the game, and how to claim your key, by hitting the jump.Click here to read more...
GOG.com have been giving away a number of titles recently, and Worms Forts is the latest one on the list. All you need to do it log into your account, add the game to you basket, and then go through the checkout process. While the transition to 3D gameplay didn't light the world on fire, Worms Forts certainly had its moments and was filled with the usual charm the series is known for. If you're looking for some ridiculous turn-based multiplayer action you may as well give this a go. After all, it's free! Thanks to Buzz for the heads-up!
While we don't usually highlight mobile deals, this freebie definitely deserves your attention. If you own an Android smartphone, all you need to do is sign up for Amazon Underground, download the app, and then hit the link above to download the full game for nothing. Considering it is not only one of the best Star Wars games ever made, but one of the best Sci-Fi RPGs, this is utterly unmissable if you're able to get hold of it. Thanks to delphinid @ HUKD!
Well, this is unexpected. The Oliver Twins, creators of the much-loved Dizzy series, recently discovered the source code for an unreleased NES entry in the series. Titled Wonderland Dizzy, you get to play as both Dizzy and his girlfriend Daisy in the usual side-scrolling, puzzle-solving action the series is known for, and you can play it for free in your browser right now.Click here to read more...
Tales From the Borderlands ended its run yesterday (and you can read the review for it here) but there's no rest for Telltale Games. All efforts are now focused on the finale of their Game of Thrones series, with the studio announcing this afternoon that Episode 6: The Ice Dragon will be releasing on November 17th. It will also be a studio first in that it will be releasing across all platforms and in all regions simultaneously. On addition to all of this, the first episode in the series, Iron From Ice, is now free to download and play through across all platforms.
The news emerged via a new video that features cast members from the TV show talking about their involvement in the game (and is mainly just Emilia Clark saying the same thing over and over.) You can see the video for yourself after the jump.Click here to read more...
After having to replace it with Theme Hospital for a while because of heavy demand, Command & Conquer Red Alert 2 and its expansion are once again On The House. As always, all you need to do is log into Origin, claim the game, and it will be yours to keep. I still regard Red Alert 2 as one of my favourite RTS titles thanks to its varied units and fantastic gameplay balance (not to mention those fantastically hammy FMV sequences between mission.) In short, go and grab this freebie, listen to the glorious tones of the Hell March, and then roll that tank column over your foes like there's no tomorrow.
There's currently a daily deal for Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty over on Steam, where you can get the rebuilt platformer for just £7.49, but they are also giving away the original game for absolutely free for today only. It might not feature the HD graphics of the remake, but Oddworld: Abes Oddysee just as weird, hilarious, and downright devious a game as its ever been. Besides, it's free! Thanks to jaystan @ HUKD!
If you're looking for something to scare yourself stupid with, or just want to prepare for Halloween next month, this should do the trick. Fives years old and still one of the better survival-horror experiences available, Amnesia: The Dark Descent is current free to everybody on Steam. All you have to do is click 'Install' on the store page and the game will be added to your library, for free. Act fast though, as the offer ends at 6PM tonight. Thanks to fattyuk @ HUKD!
EA are once again giving an absolute classic away for free with their On The House promotion. This time it's for Command & Conquer Red Alert 2, as well as its expansion. As always, all you need to do is log into Origin, claim the game, and it will be yours to keep. I still regard Red Alert 2 as one of my favourite RTS titles thanks to its varied units and fantastic gameplay balance (not to mention those fantastically hammy FMV sequences between mission.) In short, go and grab this freebie, listen to the glorious tones of the Hell March, and then roll that tank column over your foes like there's no tomorrow.
Fancy spending the Bank Holiday Weekend doing some highly frustrating stealth platforming action? Because you absolutely can without spending a single penny. Humble Bundle are currently giving away a special edition of Stealth Inc 2: A Game of Clones, which includes a DRM-free version of the game along with a Steam key, some wallpapers, and The Special Edition Soundtrack. We felt Stealth Inc 2 was a good if flawed title overall, but let's face facts here - it's currently free, meaning you've got nothing to lose by giving it a try. Thanks to Buzz for the heads-up!
Be sure to check out our Stealth Inc 2: A Game of Clones review for more details.
If you're a fan of the Resident Evil series and are currently subscribed to PlayStation Plus, you can show off your fandom by getting hold of this Character Avatar Pack for free. Just head to the PSN store, add them to your basket, and they're yours for as long as the subscription remains active. Thanks to Buzz for the find!
Four games currently have free game time for us on the Origin website ranging from 48 hours right up to 168 hours.
168 hours should be more than enough time to get your teeth into the single player side of Battlefield 4 and after 48 hours of Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare I can guarantee you will be purchasing it, or at least you should be!
Thanks to FantasyDeals on HUKD for the heads up.
As far as classic RTS titles go, you won't find better than the Command & Conquer franchise. Originally developed by Westwood Studios, Command and Conquer was taken over by Electronic Arts in 1998 before they eventually went on to close down the studio in 2003.
I personally spent a lot of time back in the late nineties and early 2000 playing both this and Age of Empires 2 (oh, and America, does anybody remember that?).
According to redalert.com Command and Conquer is a fully free to play title. If you don't already own it, you really should.

Race The Sun is a welcome fresh take on the endless runner genre, but unfortunately it doesn't really do enough to justify its $10 price tag, particularly when there's a perfectly good version of the game (not to mention dozens of robust competitors) already available for free. Sure, it's elegant and it looks nice but it's also a relatively simplistic score attack game that gets old pretty quickly. - Race The Sun Review | Polygonic Spree
Owners of a Playstation 4 may well be familiar with Race the Sun as it was a part of Sony's Instant Game Collection back in May.
Pinball Arcade is a completely free download on the Playstation 4. It's the cost of the tables pricing where you are sure to feel the sting. At £24.99 per season, Pinball Arcade can be an expensive ride for gamers.
We're not completely sure what is going on at the moment, but currently downloading Pinball Arcade from the Playstation Store is weirdly opening access to all the paid content.
Weirdly, the tables do not show as purchased when the user accesses the Playstation Store, however, trying to access any of the previous seasons on the actual console, they are greeted with the message "All currently available tables purchased", with all the tables fully displayed in the 'My Tables' section.
As a heads up, each season pack for Pinball Arcade retails at £24.99 on the Playstation Store.

Fancy £5 off your Steam purchases with a no minimum spend situation? Word has it that Paypal are distributing emails to some lucky recipients with just that. Unfortunately it seems this offer is working on an email invitation only system so it's definitely worth checking those inboxes.
If recent rumours circulating the internet are to be true. You know, the ones regarding the Steam Summer Sale which is said to begin today (which we don't believe as the Steam Summer Sale has always begun on a Thursday for the past 5 years!), then this current Paypal promotion is just simply awesome. Assuming you are chosen!Click here to read more...
Driveclub. The game that just keeps on giving now has the Rimac Automobili Concept_One available to download completely free of charge.
If you're currently running to the end of the overwhelmingly supplied free content from Driveclub and need to purchase the Season Pass make sure to check out our PlayStation + and PSN Gift Cards cheap deals guide for the best prices on PS+ and Playstation credit.
While we like to find the best deals on the latest games, because saving money is awesome, we also like to let you know when you can play something fantastic without spending a single penny. While this usually means Free-To-Play games like PlanetSide 2 (which is great, by the way) sometimes we come across complete experiences - artistic curios, or fun arcade-like titles - that are worthy of your attention.
Today, we look at one such freebie - the Attack on Titan Tribute Game.
As much as we at Dealspwn are happy that Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains is finally hitting the Nintendo eShop later this month, a lot of the gameplay appears to be QTE-heavy. While the official tie-in might scratch the itch of fans that must wait until 2016 for season 2 of the show, I for one have been after something more substantial. After all, who doesn’t want to play a game where you get to fling yourself around at high-speed like something from Spider-man 2, slaying gigantic Titans as they try to grind you into pieces?
Well, there is something that does exactly that, and it’s the Attack on Titan Tribute Game. Best of all, it’s free and you can play it in your browser.Click here to read more...
