Weekend PC Download Deals for Apr. 8: Free New World Steam weekend

Amazon's New World sort of came and went, but now's a good time to give it a second look with a free weekend on Steam.


It felt like Amazon's New World was being hyped up for years, but when it finally hit, it was met with a wide chorus of initial excitement, followed by a sea of "meh." It really is one of those games that kinda came and went from the news cycle and the hype cycle. It's still around, though! You might be wondering if it's actually worth playing. If you'd like to find out, it's free to play on Steam this weekend. Give it a look for yourself.

Elsewhere, someone put consoles into this PC post! Steam has a massive promotion on first-party Xbox games, including the Halo Infinite campaign, Sea of Thieves, the Age of Empires games, and many more. You'll also find PlayStation Studios titles being offered across several retailers, so now's your chance to pick up Horizon Zero Dawn or Days Gone at a low price.

Lastly, if you're interested in the latest Call of Duty, but don't want to actually buy it, there's still time to jump into COD: Vanguard multiplayer for free. If you like what you see, it's also on sale this weekend on Battle.net.

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?
