Weekend PC Download Deals for Mar. 5: Free NBA 2K21 Steam weekend

The NBA All-Star Game is this weekend and it's time to celebrate with a free weekend for NBA 2K21.


It still feels weird to have sports in the middle of COVID times, but the NBA has not only been operating (whether they've been operating well is up for debate), but the league is ready for the annual All-Star Game. It's not going to be the All-Star weekend that everybody's used to, but the game and the side events are still being held, nonetheless.

With that, 2K would like for people to jump into NBA 2K21 this weekend for free. You can jump into the game for the next few days on Steam without having to drop a dime. So be sure to check out all of the next-gen advancements that 2K has made… what's that? Oh. Right, the… next-gen update is only for consoles. Well… you're free to check out the old and busted game and you don't have to feel bad, because you're not paying for it! If that's no consolation, then here's Shaquille O'Neal going through a table for your entertainment.

Elsewhere, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is still on sale on Battle.net to celebrate Season 2 of that game, Fanatical has kicked off its Spring Sale (which includes an introductory discount on Persona 5 Strikers), Loop Hero just released and is having an introductory sale across several retailers, and Hades has a modest discount over on Steam.

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?
