Ace of Spades treats Steam users to free play weekend, half-price sale
These limited time freebies should entice Steam users to try out Ace of Spades and experience its run-and-gun battlefield pandemonium.
The fps mmo will be free to play until Sunday, March 17, at 1PM (PDT). The only requirement to download the game is to have Steam installed. Testers who fall in love with the creative shooter game can then opt to purchase a copy at 50% through the Steam sale, which lasts until Tuesday, March 19.
The half-price sale applies to either the Ace of Spades basic game ($10 now $5), the Ace of Spacdes 4-pack bundle ($30 now $15) and the Ace of Spades Complete package ($13 now $6.50), which includes the basic game and St. Valentine’s Day Massacre DLC pack.
The free play and discount seem to be aimed at sustaining the popularity of Ace of Spades among Steam users. Publisher Jagex said that Ace of Spades has been a hit since its release last December on the Valve-operated digital game sales platform. Ace of Spades beat out popular mmorpg games and free to play downloadables to peak at #1 on the Steam charts, according to Jagex, and has consistently featured in the global top 10 list for games under £7 (roughly $10.50) since December.
