There’s no better way to kick off a weekend than with free games, and this week Humble has stepped up with a great giveaway: Age of Wonders III. The turn-based strategy game is free to claim and keep right now–all you have to do is sign up for Humble Bundle’s newsletter. The deal ends tomorrow, May 11, at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET or while supplies last, so hurry over to Humble and claim your copy now.
Note that the free download will be provided in the form of a Steam key, so you must have a free Steam account to redeem.
The game earned a 7/10 in GameSpot’s Age of Wonders III review for its enjoyable tactical combat, streamlined empire management, and balanced randomization.
“Age of Wonders III is a well-crafted strategy game that doesn’t let itself get bogged down in needless busywork. It pushes your focus onto its strongest suit, the battlefield, while keeping everything else in the background,” wrote critic Maxwell McGee. “Some smart elements of randomness help keep you on your toes after multiple sessions, though you will find several go-to strategies still apply regardless of the sort of army you lead. Age of Wonders III is the welcome return of a long-absent strategy series and a tactically rewarding game.”
And while we’re on the subject of free Steam games: Heads-up that Conan Exiles is free to play this weekend through Sunday to celebrate the game’s one-year anniversary. The open-world survival game just received a huge free update that added two brand-new dungeons, a new feat, total revamp of several locations and enemies, new items (both lootable and craftable), various UI fixes, and more. Plus, new DLC, The Riddle of Steel, is now available with a range of items and cosmetics inspired by the 1982 movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. The base game is 50% off until May 20, so there’s no better time to dive into Conan and check out all the new changes.
