Free from August 1st-15th

Metro Last Light
Free from August 16th-31st
It is the year 2034. Beneath the ruins of post-apocalyptic Moscow, in the tunnels of the Metro, the remnants of mankind are besieged by deadly threats from outside – and within. Mutants stalk the catacombs beneath the desolate surface, and hunt amidst the poisoned skies above. But rather than stand united, the station-cities of the Metro are locked in a struggle for the military vaults of D6 - a gigantic bunker complex rumored to contain food, medicine, weapons... and maybe more. A civil war is stirring that could wipe humanity from the face of the earth forever. As Artyom, burdened by guilt but driven by hope, you hold the key to our survival – the last light in our darkest hour…





So what does everyone think? Personally I think it's great to see Ground Zeroes for free in the run up to Phantom Pain and it is a spectacular game to boot. The cynics out there will call it a demo, but I spent more time beating that game than most modern games (namely shooters). Being offered the entire metro saga is a sweet deal also. Both a spectacular games, although the 360 version of 2033 is a little bit dated at this point.
