This weekend also provides the chance to play Offworld Trading Company
, and the sci-fi real-time strategy game is also on sale for half-off.
Take on the role of entrepreneur and travel to Mars for an
economic showdown against other companies in Offworld Trading Company! You won't
have to worry about affecting your personal profit margins during the free to
play weekend on Steam starting at 1:00pm ET on May 3, 2018.
Buy out your competition and take control of the Martian market in a strategy
game where money, not military force, is your greatest weapon. The real-time,
player-driven market is the foundation of the game, allowing you to buy and sell
resources and materials - even the food and water that the colonists need to
survive. Build up enough capital and gain access to the lucrative offworld
markets so that you can buy out your rivals and claim the Martian economy for
Battle isn't limited to the board room; you can use the black market to employ
some more... underhanded methods for victory. You - and your opponents - should
prepare to deal with pirate raiders, or hackers trying to disrupt production, or
a covert electromagnetic pulse to an opponent's base, and much more.
Connect with friends online in games for up to 8 players, or try one of the
single player campaigns, skirmishes, or daily challenges. For more serious
players, ranked ladder games will give them the opportunity to earn ranks and
prove their worth.
"We're really excited to be bringing this free weekend to players," said Soren
Johnson, lead designer and president of Mohawk Games. "Offworld has been my
passion project - it's fast paced, deeply strategic, and is awesome in a
multiplayer setting. This event is a great opportunity for new people to try out
the game with their friends and play with the community of Offworld fans."
Soren, other members of the dev team, fans, and staff will be streaming live on
Steam to showcase the game throughout the weekend. Stop in, say hello, and play
a game or two, then share your thoughts with the community.
