Try 10 Free Games on Steam this Weekend Starting Today

XCOM Enemy Unknown

The biggest free weekend on Steam ever is coming up, and starting from today, October 16th, you can try up to ten exciting games for the price of nothing! At 10AM, you’ll have access to some wonderful hits, and Steam is hoping that if you enjoy them enough, you’ll buy them before the end of the deal.

The games are as follows, and this list has some real winners:

  • Awesomenauts
  • Blade Symphony
  • Company of Heroes 2
  • Don’t Starve
  • Grid 2
  • Injustice: Gods Among Us
  • Killing Floor
  • Payday 2
  • Trine 2
  • XCOM: Enemy Unknown

So many great games? Where to begin? Well, this list does have one of our best games of the generation on it in XCOM: Enemy Unknown. I think all of us are big fans of that one and nobody is going to argue against starting there.

After that, Don’t Starve is an excellent survival simulator that seems to have spawn a genre of copycats, and Awesomenauts is… well, awesome. I’ve heard nothing but good hings about Payday 2 and Killing Floor also, but I think I’m going to start with Company of Heroes 2 just because I know the original is so universally beloved, and I’d like to see why the sequel isn’t.

Any takers this weekend?
