The Free Steam Games You Can Play This Weekend

about X hours ago from

Every weekend, a small group of games are discounted and available to play for free on Steam, and the latest bunch of free weekend offerings are now live. The first game available to play for free this weekend is Conan Exiles, which released last May. Conan Exiles is an open-world survival game set in the savage lands of Conan the Barbarian where you must build up your own kingdom from nothing. The game can be played in single-player, co-op, or persistent online multiplayer modes. Explore the wilds, gather resources, slay monsters, loot treasure, and wage war against other civilizations to become the dominant clan among many. The developers recently rolled out more updates to Conan Exiles, so it's a good chance to try the game out. Conan Exiles will be free to play until Sunday, March 10, at 1 PM PST / 4 PM EST.

If you play Conan Exiles and love the experience, its standard edition is just $20 this weekend--a full 50% off. The deluxe edition is $42 (40% off) and comes with five DLC packs.

Where Is Xur? Destiny 2 Location And Exotic Weapons And Armor Guide (March 8-12)

Where Is Xur? Destiny 2 Location And Exotic Weapons And Armor Guide (March 8-12)

It's the first weekend of Joker's Wild, Destiny 2's second Annual Pass content expansion. That means everyone's favorite snake-faced salesman, Xur, is back in the solar system with a host of Exotic weapons and armor. But unlike Xur's visits for the first five seasons of Destiny 2, this weekend is different: it's the first time that Xur has a chance of bringing along Exotics from the Forsaken expansion to sell.

Of course, now that Forsaken Exotics are in the rotation, that doesn't mean that Xur is guaranteed to actually bring you something you might want. They're just in the randomly chosen pool of his wares. Luckily, this week is an embarrassment of riches for players who've been hoping to snag some Year Two Exotics, because Xur has three of them.

Xur's arrival this week takes him to the Tower, where you'll find him in the Hangar. At the bottom of the stairs as you enter the area, turn left and walk to the back to where you'll find a staircase heading upward to the left toward a catwalk. Xur is about halfway up, enjoying the view.

Sony Releases Free PS4 Theme To Celebrate International Women's Day

about X hours ago from

March 8 is International Women's Day, a celebration of the many influential and inspiring women around the world. To mark the occasion, Sony has released a free International Women's Day PS4 theme featuring some of the iconic female leads from PlayStation games new and old.

The characters featured include Horizon Zero Dawn's Aloy, The Last of Us' Ellie, Freya from God of War, the Hunter from Bloodborne, and leading duo Chloe and Nadine from Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. The theme is available to download now on the European and Australian PlayStation Stores; it's not yet listed on the US PS Store, but given it's International Women's Day, we expect it shouldn't be too much longer before it appears.

In other PlayStation news, PS4 users can now play their games using their iPhones and iPads via Remote Play, thanks to a recent PS4 system software update. Once your console is updated, you'll also need to download the PS4 Remote Play app from the Apple App Store. The app itself is compatible with the vast majority of PS4 games, with virtual buttons and sticks appearing on the iOS device screen, though you may find a bluetooth gamepad allows greater control.

Octopath Traveler is getting a prequel for iOS and Android devices called Octopath Traveler: Conquerors of the Continent, Square Enix has announced. The first trailer, which you can watch below, show that the mobile game will retain the striking "HD-2D" visual style that served as one of the main draws for the Nintendo Switch version.

Although details on Octopath Traveler: Conquerors of the Continent are scant, it has been confirmed that the game will take place before the events of the Switch title, with three characters that have unique stories. This format mirrors the distinct campaigns that were tied to Octopath Traveler's cast of heroes.

Octopath Traveler: Conquerors of the Continent is expected to launch for iOS and Android in Japan in 2019 and is free-to-play. Square Enix has not yet confirmed how it will monetize the game.

New Lord Of The Rings TV Show Details Suggest A Popular Theory Is Wrong

One of the popular, consistent rumours about Amazon's The Lord of the Rings TV show was that one of its storylines might focus on a young Aragorn.

However, now that Amazon has confirmed when in Middle-earth history the show takes place, that can seemingly be ruled out. Amazon confirmed that the untitled Lord of the Rings show is set during the Second Age. However, Aragorn was born during the Third Age.

Battlefield 5's Battle Royale Mode Leaks In New Video

about X hours ago from

Battlefield 5's battle royale mode, Firestorm, has leaked online ahead of its release this month. What appears to be the mode's tutorial video has appeared online.

As the video explains, Battlefield V's Firestorm will have Solo, Duo, and Squads options. As with other battle royale games, rounds start with players dropping in from above; in this case it's with a parachute. Players must then find weapons and other items on the map and use them to be the last player standing. There are three tiers of weapons: Common, Rare, and Epic.

As with other battle royale games, ammo isn't always easy to find, so you will need to manage your inventory and share with teammates in Duos and Squads to survive and win.
