Wondering what you’ll be playing this weekend? Thanks to Steam, two tactical shooters are free to play until Monday: Beyond the Wire and Nine to Five.
Beyond the Wire is a shooter from Redstone Interactive that is set during World War I. The highlight of the game is the 100-player battles that help bring the frenzy of WWI combat to life. In-between terrifying charges across fields and grueling trench warfare, you can appreciate the wide selection of factions, maps, and cool weapons.
You can play Beyond the Wire for free on Steam until Monday, May 24 at 10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET. And if you really like it, the game is available for 35% off during this same window.
Nine to Five is a tactical shooter unlike most that you have played before. Instead of focusing on large-scale battles, gameplay involves three teams of three players. Each team has their own missions, and the outcome of player actions over the three phases of online games will affect what happens in each phase.
Additionally, the objectives can change rapidly while you play. In other words, this game requires you to use your head more than just your mad mouse and keyboard shooting skills.
Developer Redhill Games offered access to this game in a closed beta once before. But since then, the game has been improved in almost every way. Before you can play it, though, you’ll need to request access during this Beta Weekend. After that, you’ll have until Monday, May 24 to play it.
Will you be playing either of these titles this weekend? Be sure to let us know in the comments!
