Weekend PC Download Deals for May 22: DayZ free Steam weekend

If you're tired of trying to survive the real world, try to survive a fictional one with DayZ, which is free to play on Steam this weekend.


Twitter users might have seen a certain meme in the last week implying that we have reached our Independence Day. That's just silly. The apocalypse is still going on strong, friends! So might as well live it out in video game form, too, and do your best to ride it out with long-running survival adventure, DayZ. Bohemia Interactive's harsh open-world environment is getting a rare sale, but on top of that, it's getting an even rarer free weekend. So trade in the real-world apocalypse for an entirely different one this weekend on Steam!

Elsewhere, two huge sales continue on. The Epic Mega Sale continues with all of its offerings from last week. The difference is that Grand Theft Auto V is no longer free, but still out there for 15 dollars. The free game for the week is now Sid Meier's Civilization VI, though that's just the base game. If you want the Platinum Edition, that'll cost some more coin, but it is on sale in certain places. Among them is the Humble Store, which is in the Encore phase of its Spring Sale!

Lastly, there are two major birthdays to celebrate! Pac-Man is celebrating his 40th birthday and you can celebrate right now with a special Pac-Man Steam Sale. Meanwhile, The Witcher III is five years old and GOG.com is celebrating with an offer that can land you the first Witcher game absolutely free!

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. 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?
