Weekend PC Download Deals for April 27: Free Steam Weekends for Day of Infamy, Arma 3, and Payday 2

Looking for something to play this weekend? Steam is making it easy to jump into three top games for no charge.


There's a trio of free weekends going down on Steam this weekend, for those looking to sample some top-level games. Arma 3 has been a Shacknews favorite for years, but for those who still haven't given it a try, it's available from now through Sunday. Another community favorite is Payday 2, which is also running for free this weekend. And lastly, it's the more recent Day of Infamy, from the makers of Insurgency. The folks at New World Interactive have made some solid military shooters in the past and Day of Infamy has flown under a lot of radars, just like Insurgency did back in the day.

Elsewhere, Spring Sales for Green Man Gaming and GamersGate continue, with new games getting discounted each day. Also, be sure to look out at your favorite retailer, because it's Alien Day. That means Alien Isolation, which still holds up as one of the best Alien games ever made, is on sale across most retailers.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
