Steam Makes Upcoming Sci-fi Game 100% Free for Limited Time

Steam users have been surprised with a new free game. Every once in a while, a game will be made free on Steam, not via Valve, but the developers and publishers behind said game. The latest freebie comes courtesy of developer Redcatpig Studio and publisher Digital Matters Publishing, and it's for a game that's not even out yet. The game in question is KEO, which launched in Steam Early Access back on December 9, 2021. Typically, it costs Steam users $10 to get in on the game in early access, but right now, all Steam users can download it for free. The only requirement is that the freebie is redeemed before March 27, because in three days the offer will end and the game will return to its normal price point. 

As for the game itself, it's pitched as "a team-based online multiplayer vehicle combat game set in a sci-fi post-apocalyptic world" from a small indie team. On Steam, it has already amassed 217 reviews, 57 percent of which are positive, giving the game a "Mixed" user review rating. 

Below, you can read more about it and check out a trailer for it:

"It is the year 2120, humans battle for resources in an intense combat sport using high-tech remote controlled vehicles scavenged from the old world that was destroyed 66 years ago," reads an official description of the game. "Battle in this team-based online multiplayer vehicle combat game set in a sci-fi post-apocalyptic world featuring different game modes such as Deathmatch, and Domination.
