Lego The Lord of the Rings is among the better iterations of the prolific licensing crossover, and it’s currently free to own via Humble. If you like inflating your digital library with free titles – and hey, who doesn’t – you can grab it for the next two days. There’s only one small catch: you’ve got to sign up for Humble’s newsletter. Some digital reports on Humble deals isn’t really a significant price to pay, and I doubt they’ll take your key away if you unsubscribe afterward. The key will redeem on Steam, so you can have your game in your usual library. You have until December 22 at 10:00 PST / 13:00 EST / 18:00 GMT to grab your copy via the Humble Store. Even if you do log in and grab your copy by then, make sure to redeem your key, as Humble’s keys have run out in the past, and do occasionally expire. Last week’s offer of a free Lego The Hobbit ended early for just that reason, so if you do want this one … [Read more...] about Free games: Lego Lord of the Rings is yours on Humble

Imagine how much it'd cost you to command a steampunk airship in the real world. Loads, probably. But we're giving you the opportunity to do that for free, as many times as you like, with a team of fellow airheads in Guns of Icarus Alliance. Check out the best free Steam games if you need something to play right now. The airships in Guns of Icarus Alliance are better than sea ships in a couple of demonstrable ways. Firstly, they take on some of the aesthetic trappings of naval vessels despite never getting near the ocean, which suggests a level of indulgence among steampunk shipwrights that's quite charming.

PUBG might be losing some ground to Fortnite, but the game remains a juggernaut. According to Valve boss Gabe Newell, the battle royale game is Steam's third highest-selling game of all time. He revealed the detail during a presentation this weekend, according to IGN."You can have a relatively new game like PUBG, and [...] they can capitalize on all the other multiplayer games, and all of the technology, [and] the fact that China is now a huge market for anybody who does PC game development," Newell apparently said. "So PUBG can come out of pretty much nowhere and become the third largest selling game on Steam's history. Their gross revenue over all-time is already number three in fairly short order."It is not immediately clear what the No. 1 and No. 2 best-selling games on Steam are, and Valve may never say. Indeed, PUBG was only released on Steam through Early Access in March 2017. The game left Early Access in December with the launch of the 1.0 edition. Though the game is … [Read more...] about PUBG Is Steam’s Third Best-Selling Game Ever
