Deep Rock Galactic Free Weekend

Deep Rock Galactic is free-to-play all weekend on Steam, and the co-op first-person shooter is on sale for those who enjoy their sample (thanks DSOGaming). Here's word:
Attention Miners!
As we’re getting very close to the launch of update 25, we want to recruit new Greenbeards to work the mines below the surface of Hoxxes IV. We’ve already passed the mark of recruiting 750.000 brave dwarven brethren, so to celebrate this we’re having a free weekend as a recruitment drive. Join Deep Rock Galactic, the most tenacious space mining corporation in the galaxy, and get your limited edition recruitment helmet, while supplies last.

SALE
During the Free Weekend and an additional couple of days, Deep Rock Galactic will be 35% off, so if you have friends that have been waiting for a reason to take the plunge, this is it. Give them a nudge. The Free Weekend runs until September 16, 5PM UTC. The sale ends September 18, 5PM UTC.

YOU GET A HAT!
As an extra bonus, we have something special for everyone taking part of the free weekend. For this limited time only, we’ll have a special, handcrafted, hot-off-the-forge helmet available in the nearest Accessory terminal (it’s the first one you see when you exit the personal pods). Remember that this is only available during the Free Weekend, so you’ll have to go grab it in the Accessory Shop, or you’ll miss it.

Anyone play this? Is it like L4D, but with space dwarves?

Steam says I've played 163 hours of it, so... yeah.

Game of the year for me.

It's pretty fun with a group, but it can kinda be played solo. They give you a flying attack/mining robot.

I think all the levels are effectively procedural, all sorts of upgrades/cosmetics in proper dwarfy fashion, and a similar sense of humor.

Definitely worth a look.

If in L4D you were tasked with gathering as much of the precious materials scattered around the level as possible before you escape the way you came, kind of? There are no handcrafted levels with specific objectives and orchestrated battles to get through, you just occasionally have waves of bugs coming at you. Overall, it reminds me more of spelunking the randomly-generated caves in Minecraft, just with more enemies.

The land in Minecraft is flat, Minecraft simulates the Earth, ergo the Earth is flat.
