Sega Celebrates 60 Years With A Collection Of Free PC Games For A Limited Time
Sega is celebrating the 60th anniversary of the company with an offer that sees some PC games made available for free.
You can download them all now, but you’ll need to be quick. These freebies are only available as part of the anniversary celebrations. Once those are done, these free games will be gone.
According to Lifehacker we can expect these games to be available for free for just another couple of days at the time of writing. With that in mind it’s probably worth getting your downloads done now, while the going is good.
Here’s what’s on offer right now.
Armor of Heroes (Available October 16-19): A top-down tank combat game with a competitive multiplayer mode. The game cribs from the Company of Heroes series of WWII strategy games by Relic studios.
Endless Zone (Available October 16-19): A side-scrolling sci-fi shooter similar to the retro Sega title Fantasy Zone.
Golden Axed (Available October 18): A tiny 2.5D hack-and-slash game set in the Golden Axe universe. It’s only a single level, apparently repurposed from a canceled Golden Axe reboot—hence the title “Golden Axed.” Get it?
Streets of Kamurocho (Available October 17-19): An arcade-style beat-’em-up that blends the Streets of Rage’s gameplay and 16-bit graphic style with the Yakuza series’ popular characters and setting.
Not just that, a couple of classics are also available:
Sonic the Hedgehog 2: Steam users can download Sonic the Hedgehog 2 on PC until October 19. Once you’ve downloaded it, it’s yours to keep and play forever.
Nights into Dreams: You can also get a free PC copy of the oddball Sega Saturn game Nights into Dreams if you link your Steam account to Sega’s official 60th-anniversary celebration web page at any time within the next 60 days.
All of these games are available for download, for free, right from the Steam store. Again, they won’t be around for long!
