Let’s start off with free games available on Steam;

Waves 2: Notorius is now permanently free on Steam

Due to the untimely passing of its sole game developer, the twin stick shooter Waves 2: Notorious is now permanently free on Steam (as is the original Waves game). In this colorful game you can customize your avatar’s load-out to match your combat style and explore synergies between the 36 items to find the best combination for you.

Waves 2: Notorious has Very Positive reviews and it used to costs $4.99 on Steam, but now you can get it for free. Sadly, it will never leave Early Access, but it’s playable and quite fun.

BATTALION: Legacy is now FREE on Steam

BATTALION: Legacy recaptures the core of classic shooters in the final iteration of Battalion 1944. Return to the simple days of playing first person shooters with your friends. Grab your bolt action rifle in ‘rifles only’ mode or compete in 5v5 Search and Destroy.
This is another game that turned from a paid game into a free forever game, mainly because the developers decided to abandon it. You can still play it in multiplayer because there’s an influx of new players but probably not for long.
If you want to check it out, here’s the link to where you can download it for free on Steam.

What’s free at Epic Games Store this week?
