During these difficult times, videogames have been a great form of escape from this isolation for many, including even a lot of non-gamers. Developers have been making use of the situation and have been giving away their games for people to enjoy while staying indoors. Recent ones include AAA titles like Just Cause 4 and Tomb Raider 2013. And this stream of free games doesn’t seem to be stopping yet, with SEGA’s critically-acclaimed strategy title, Total War: Shogun 2 being the next.
The game is currently up on Steam at its full $25/₹1,349 price tag. The free-to-claim period for Total War: Shogun 2 will kick off from Monday, April 27, 18:00 BST until Friday, May 1, 18:00 BST. Download the game between the mentioned time period and you’re free to keep the game forever, or you can just simply add it to your Steam library and download it later.
“The past few weeks have presented unimaginable challenges for many of us, but the remarkable collective effort being made by the global community to overcome this moment of adversity has been truly inspirational,” said SEGA.
“With this in mind, we want to continue to encourage you all to stay home and save lives by extending a gift to everyone to help make this difficult situation a little bit easier.”
A Total War sale will also kick-off along with Shogun 2 being free-to-keep, from April 27, 18:00 BST until Monday, May 4, 18:00 BST. The sale, however, won’t be including Total War: THREE KINGDOMS, ROME: Total War and the Total War: WARHAMMER series.
Released back in 2011, the game has over 18k reviews on Steam and a Very Positive rating. Head over to their blog post for more details.
