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.
Starting things off, you will find that the Epic Games Store is currently offering Civilization VI as its free game for this week, replacing last week's Grand Theft Auto V giveaway with another enormous one.
The base content of the Firaxis-developed 4X strategy title, including its nuke happy civilizations, are yours to keep if you claim it before May 28. Just like the last couple of weeks, the store is keeping the next freebie close to its chest until the new countdown timer reaches zero.
Also, since the Epic Mega Sale and the repeating $10 coupon is still active on the store, the Civilization VI Platinum Edition upgrade can be had for $29.99, which heralds both of the major expansions and additional factions.
Jumping over to bundles, Humble and Bandai Namco have joined up for another collection, and this time there are nine games involved.
The four-tier bundle begins with Pac-Man 256, Get Even, and Enslaved: Odyssey to the West for $1. Continuing on, the pay more than the average tier has Katamari Damacy Reroll, .hack//G.U. Last Recode, and RAD currently for around $10.80.
The final two tiers come in at $15 and $25, with the former delivering Tekken 7 and Tales of Berseria, while the latter adds on The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man Of Medan to the package. Elsewhere on the store, the 10 year anniversary Humble Indie Bundle from earlier in the month is almost at an end as well, which offers you games like Starbound, Moonlighter, and more.
Following months of heavy, free event-filled weekends, this time around there are only a few games to try out for free.
Bohemia Interactive's multiplayer survival game DayZ is having a free weekend right now, letting you jump into the post-apocalyptic world where everyone is obviously friendly and is not out to kill you. It looks like the only other experience that's having a free weekend on Steam is the rhythm game DJMax: Respect V. Both games are free-to-play until May 25.
Meanwhile, Star Citizen is hosting a free fly event until June 1, letting players try out many of its available ships. Get more details here.
