Nuclear Dawn Free Weekend

Remember the RTS/FPS hybrid indie multiplayer game called Nuclear Dawn? It came out at the end of last September to mixed reviews. I had been following over the last couple years and it had been in development for a very long time, while it was originally merely a source modification but it was later turned into a full downloadable release. Nuclear Dawn is intriguing with the way it has one player be a commander, controlling all the RTS aspects of the game, while the rest of the players take on classes and fight the war on foot. Check out this video to get an idea of how the game looks.

Nuclear Dawn is having a free weekend on Steam starting Thursday the 15th of December and ending on Monday the 19th. During this period Nuclear Dawn will also be on sale for 40% off ($12) for anyone who decides to pick it up as a result. During the free weekend you will also be able to level up quickly with a double xp bonus running until Monday. I've always been interested in the game but after the game didn't get glowing reviews I couldn't convince myself to thrown down $20 for it. To play the game this weekend merely visit the steam page on Thursday and you should be able to download the game for free, but once it hits Monday it will become locked in library until you purchase it (at least that's how they normally do those kinds of things). Check out the steam page and main website for more information and I will definitely try it out quite a bit this weekend, which may result in an "impressions" article. There are quite a few reviews on the Nuclear Dawn main website as well if you are interested. Thanks for reading!
