To celebrate THQ Nordic’s tenth anniversary, the publisher is hosting a big Steam sale and offering Titan Quest Anniversary Edition and Jagged Alliance Gold Edition free.
From yesterday (September 16) through September 23, both games are available to download – and keep – for free on Steam.
Titan Quest is a hack and slash action RPG, rooted in ancient Greek mythology, that tasks players with battling the Titans, the “greatest villains in Greek mythology”. To be successful, the Steam page adds that players must “interpret the prophecies of the blind diviner Tiresias, fight alongside Agamemnon and Achilles, and use the wiles of Odysseus.”
During this time, Jagged Alliance Gold Edition is a cult classic from 1994 that mixes elements of strategy and RPG to allow fans to build their own team of mercenaries and free the island of Metavira from the oppressive villain Santino. With a mix of broader territorial strategy and turn-based combat, the original Jagged Alliance has remained a fan favorite since its launch almost three decades ago.
Additionally, THQ Nordic’s Wild West tactical stealth game Desperados 3 is also available to play for free, although this is only temporary and will require a purchase to continue playing after September 20.
To pick up one of the games, visit the Jagged Alliance Steam page, Titan Quest Steam page or Desperados 3 Steam and press “Add to account” (or “Play Game” to Desperados 3).
The free games are part of a larger celebration surrounding THQ Nordic’s tenth anniversary, and significant discounts are available for almost all Steam games under the publisher’s banner. There will also be a tenth anniversary showcase today (September 17) that will unveil six new games, and it can be viewed here.
In other news, Yuji Naka has started solo development of a new game, though he says it’s “no big deal”.
