Weekend PC Game Deals: Classic freebies, racing bundles, and returning battles

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.

Bringing in a double giveaway to mark the end of its Mega Sale is the Epic Games Store this week. You can now grab copies of ARK: Survival Evolved and Samurai Shodown NeoGeo Collection for free as permanent additions to your library.

The dinosaur-involved survival game ARK has players taming creatures, building bases, and doing other activities expected from a game from this genre. The newly released NeoGeo Collection includes six enhanced games from the classic Samurai Shodown fighting series as well as the unreleased Samurai Shodown V Perfect edition.

The two games are free to claim until June 18, and next up on the giveaway schedule are Pathway and The Escapists 2.

Humble has also thrown a game into the giveaway pile this weekend, with limited copies of the puzzle platformer Snake Pass available to claim. The giveaway is ending on June 14 at 10AM PDT, if stocks don't run out first.

This week, Humble introduced a couple of new bundles, and we start off with the new Codemasters collection that's filled with racers plus some unlikely games.

The $1 tier comes with GRID Autosport, Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising, Overlord II, and Toybox Turbos. Jumping to the average price tier (currently at $5.70) adds on copies of F1 2018 plus its Headline DLC, DiRT Rally, and DiRT 4, which also comes with the Hyundai R5 Rally Car and Team Booster DLC packs.

The final tier will set you back $15, but get you copies of F1 2019 and DiRT Rally 2.0 in addition to everything mentioned previously.

Next up is the Plug in Digital and Dear Villagers Bundle, a three-tier collection that has 11 games from a variety of genres. For putting down at least 1$, you get Impulsion, Splasher, Strikers Edge, and AWAY: Journey to the Unexpected. These are joined by Mana Spark, Roof Rage, Streets of Red: Devil's Dare Deluxe, and Old School Musical for paying the average price, which currently stands at $4.65.

Finally, the $11 tier has three additional games, them being Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter, Dead In Vinland, and Hover.

This is also your final chance to grab the Itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality, which heralds over 1600 DRM-free games for putting down at least $5, and includes hits like Pyre, Celeste, Nuclear Throne, Oxenfree, Cook Serve Delicious 2, and so much more.

Free Events

On the free events front this weekend it's mostly about multiplayer shooters. Up first is Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare, with the popular shooter's multiplayer component available to try out for free until June 15, and you can jump in through the Warzone client on Battle.net.

You can also try out Ubisoft's massively popular tactical shooter Rainbow Six Siege. During the free weekend that's available through Uplay, you can try out everything being offered in the base version.

Meanwhile on Steam, the cooperative shooter Killing Floor 2 is also having a free weekend, where you can team up with five other players to take down zeds in various maps with creative weapons. The combo breaker is the free weekend for the motorbike racing sim TT Isle of Man Ride on the Edge 2.
