Play Offworld Trading Company for free this weekend


Look at all the money

One of the best RTS titles in the past decade, Offworld Trading Company, is available to play on Steam, for free, from now until Sunday.

As is customary with free weekends like this, the base game and all of its DLC and expansions have been placed on sale for those who want to continue playing past the Sunday deadline, or for those of us who have fallen behind on picking up the expansions.

I know a lot of people are turned off by the real-time strategy genre designation, but Offworld Trading Company is not your usual RTS. It’s an economy-based game that uses both the stock market and your company’s value as its weapons, as opposed to micromanaging units on a battlefield. It’s easy to pick up and learn, but also takes a little bit of time to master, which makes for a great RTS.

Offworld Trading Company is free to play on Steam from now until May 6 at 10:00 PT / 13:00 ET.
