SEGA turned 60 this year, and that’s a massive achievement for any company, let alone one in the eternally-shaky world of video games. SEGA knows it, too, and is rewarding players in a big way, though you’re going to have to be quick so that you don’t miss out.
Basically, SEGA is releasing four games on Steam, all completely free, on a super (super) short release, and then pulling them all from the store on October 19. These four games (and their release dates) below:
Armor of Heroes: A tank skirmish game for up to four players (human or AI) across a number of different gameplay modes: Annihilation, Carnage, Crazy Tanks, Danger Zone, King of the hill, Last Man Standing, Skirmish, or Standoff. It ties in to SEGA’s Company of Heroes property, and releases on October 15.
Golden Axed: A Canceled Prototype: The final game in the list hits pretty close to home because it’s what SEGA Studios Australia was working on before being unceremoniously shuttered a few years ago. This isn’t a full game, but developer, Eccentric Ape and SEGA have partnered up to bring one level into a playable state, so fans can see what might have been. It’s available on October 18.
