Weekend PC Game Deals: Publisher promos and a free event gold mine

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.

Not much has happened this week in the bundle department to highlight, so let's jump straight into the freebies. Two more games have been made free on the Epic Games Store, offering you Ruiner and Nuclear Throne for this week. Two quite difficult and shooting heavy games.

Ruiner is an almost top-down perspective title that has you shooting and fighting your way through a brutal cyberpunk world. Meanwhile, Nuclear Throne is a top-down, rogue-like shooter set in a post-apocalyptic world, with you shooting your way through monsters. This can also be played in couch co-op with a friend, though mods can make it go online.

Coming to replace this duo next week on the Epic Games Store is the widely well-received action platformer The Messenger.

Free Events

The free events running this weekend more than make up for the lack of interesting new bundles and such however, as eight games are currently free to try on Steam. We have also added their download sizes below for convenience.

Celebrating Payday 2's (26.8GB) restarted development, Overkill has made the co-op heist game free to play for the weekend. You can also become Rico Rodriguez in Just Cause 4 (53.7GB) in its own free weekend, offering an explosive adventure.

Joining them is Cities: Skylines (4.4GB), the Paradox Interactive-made city-building and management game, for which we recommend you get some traffic mods. Meanwhile, those who want to drive across the U.S. in style have American Truck Simulator (3.2GB) to also try out this weekend for free.

For MMORPG fans, The Elder Scrolls Online (87.3GB) is having an extended free event that lasts until November 12, handing you Tamriel to explore. Lastly, from the indie side, the newly released party game Headsnatchers (1.5GB), the squad-based top-down action game Dog Duty (123MB), and the point and click crime noir title The Detail (1.2GB), are all having free weekends also.

Big Deals

With the sweeping Halloween sales now behind us, the deals world has gone back to specialized promotions, as several publishers have gone all out with their wares this weekend. See our hand-picked highlights list below:

DRM-free Goodness

In the DRM-free front, the GOG store has come forth with a hefty Made in Poland promotion, among other discounts:

Keep in mind that availability and pricing for some deals could vary depending on the region.

And that is it for our pick of this weekend's PC game deals folks, and hopefully, some of you have enough self-restraint not to break the bank adding new games to your ever-growing backlogs. Of course, there is an enormous amount of other deals ready and waiting all over the interwebs if you comb through it hard enough, so keep your eyes open for those, and have a fantastic weekend.

Update: Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines price corrected. Apologies.
