If you can ignore all the loot box controversy surrounding Star Wars Battlefront II then you can finally play it in full starting from now. But let's suppose you're fed up of the game already - what else can you play this weekend? Well, two huge games are free right now, and there are new game modes and DLCs that have just come out for others. Have a look below for our recommended PC gaming this weekend.
Win a copy of physics-based puzzler Human: Fall Flat - we have 100 Steam keys!
Our big giveaway this weekend is for 100 Steam keys for the physics-based clumsy-'em-up Human: Fall Flat. It's been out a while now but it recently got a local multiplayer update so you and up to seven other friends can push each other off cliffs and try to solve the game's hectic puzzles.
If you need some shooting in your life but can't be dealing with Battlefront II right now then Rainbow Six Siege is your best option. It's having a free weekend on Steam for the next few days so, if you don't own it, make the most of it.
Here it is: the big game release of this week. Star Wars Battlefront II is now out with its single-player campaign and multiplayer offering. You probably already know everything there is about its loot boxes but, in case you don't, here's our primer on everything that's wrong with them. Hopefully, EA will make some tweaks.
Operation Hydra may have come to an end in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive but Valve have decided not to take away everything we liked about it. Instead, the new game modes Wing Man and War Games are being kept on and more maps added to their rosters. Go celebrate by dominating in them!
If you're after something a little quieter than all the shooters this weekend then look no further than The Sims 4 Cats & Dogs. The expansion lets you adopt cats, dogs, and even raccoons so your sim can be cheered up with a new, fluffy friend. But, uh, don't get too carried away - managing too many pets quickly becomes stressful.
Ah, StarCraft II, it's like you never left. Oh wait, it didn't, did it? Whether you've been playing StarCraft II non-stop since it came out back in 2010, or never played it before, now is a good time to pick it up as it is now a free-to-play game. No money, no problem.
Little Nightmares is one of this year's gaming delights. It has you crawling through a terrifying ship called The Maw as a little girl in a raincoat, chased by long-limbed creatures and gluttonous guests. It now has a new piece of DLC to check out that has you play as another character who bumps into more of the ship's hidden horrors.
We need no excuse to go back and play The Witcher 3. In fact, some of us here at PCGN never stopped playing it. If you're unlike us and do need an excuse, however, here is one: a new mod recreates The Witcher 1's prologue inside The Witcher 3. Can we get the rest of the game next, please?
Keyboards don't tend to be terribly expensive as far as PC hardware goes but you if you're an avid gamer - and we know you are - you want to get the best one you can for as little money as possible. Good job we put together this guide to cheap keyboards that are also proper decent, then.
This War of Mine is, frankly, a game that we don't necessarily want to revisit. And for all the right reasons: it's a harrowing examination of war through the eyes of ordinary citizens, rather than the soldiers we always play as in other games. It now has a new piece of DLC that has you play as a father looking out for his daughter. We can feel the tears coming on already.
