Weekend PC Game Deals: Spring sales, freebies, and scores of demos to try at home

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.

To help stay entertained at home during these trying times, Square Enix plus several other companies have made some games completely free, letting you add them to your library permanently.

From Square Enix's camp arrives the Tomb Raider reboot and Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, while Jackbox Games has put forth Drawful 2 in the freebie pile, all on Steam. The indie titles Headsnatchers, Goat of Duty, and Deiland are also free to claim right now on Steam, while from GOG arrives Mable & The Wood. Here's everything in a list:

These games have different end times for their free promotions, so grab them before they are gone. Going forward, we will probably start seeing more and more giveaways start rolling in.

Humble isn't putting any breaks on its weekly bundles, and this weekend you can grab a collection heavy with Capcom games. The Mega Bundle offers 13 games as well as coupons for a couple of the publisher's newer games.

Kicking things off in the $1 tier are Mega Man Legacy Collection, Strider, and Resident Evil Revelations 2 - Episode 1. Meanwhile in the Pay More than Average tier, you can currently drop around $11/30 to get Resident Evil 0 HD Remaster, and Resident Evil Revelations plus its complete sequel. You also get 50% off coupons for Resident Evil 2 and Devil May Cry 5 from the Humble Store.

Finally, the $20 tier brings in six more games, them being Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition, Mega Man 11, Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection, Resident Evil HD Remaster, and Dead Rising 4.

Don't forget that the Just Drive bundle from last week, featuring games like Project CARS 2, Assetto Corsa, and DiRT 4, is still available as well.

Free games continue to arrive without hitches on the Epic Games Store too, bringing in two more freebies to grab this week. Replacing the indie trio from last week are Watch Dogs and The Stanley Parable.

Watch Dogs is a Ubisoft-developed open-world action game that has you taking the role of a hacker with access to the city-systems of Chicago, letting you control traffic lights, security systems, hack personal information from pedestrians, and more. Meanwhile, The Stanley Parable is a popular interactive walking sim that has you controlling Stanley through diverging story paths while being narrated by a humorous voice.

The double giveaway will be available to claim until March 26. As for the next freebie promotion, Epic plans on putting up Torment x Punisher and Figment.
