This weekend Futuremark Studios together with Fatshark are offering gamers the Frontiers Free Weekend. Space-based FPS Shattered Horizon and Wild West shooter Lead and Gold will both be free to play and half-price to buy on Steam all weekend. They will also be launching the Frontiers Pack, a bundle containing both games at a reduced price. During the free weekend fans of multiplayer shooters can pick up the Frontiers Pack for just $12.49 / €12.49 -  a saving of more than 60% over the cost of the two games when bought separately.

Shattered Horizon's Weapons DLC pack called Firepower launches (see what I did there?) today. Futuremark pointed out something interesting in an email to me this morning:

There is an interesting clash of approaches this week for PC gamers. Yesterday saw the release of MW2’s simple map pack for a staggering $14.99, while today sees the release of Shattered Horizon’s Firepower weapons pack for free. Big publisher and indie developer, both expanding their multiplayer games but going about it in very different ways.

We believe that charging for multiplayer content is the wrong way to treat players who have already invested hundreds of hours into a game’s community. Not only is our DLC free, but for the next week we have decided to sell the complete Shattered Horizon game for just $14.99, the same price as MW2’s map pack alone.


The new weapons in the Firepower pack are: Railgun, Machinegun, Assault Rifle, SMG, Shotgun, Pistol, Grenade Pistol and Moon Mining Pick. Three new grenades have also been added: Flare, Pulse and Decoy. Images and further details of all the new weapons can be found at http://shatteredhorizon.com/details/zerogravitycombat/

Looks like there will be plenty to do for the cost conscious gamer this weekend. Currently, the Shadowgrounds games are 75% off due to Steam's midweek madness sale. Shattered Horizon will be free to play this weekend, from the 19th to the 21st of February and the price will be knocked down 50% during this time as well. If you're curious about this excellent and unique game then now is the time to check it out.

Also, GOG now has a number of Activision games in their catalog, including Gabriel Knight, Phantasmagoria and Vampire: The Masquerade: Redemption (one of my personal favorites). Interstate 76 is due to release at the end of February as well - looks like it'll be a good month for retro-ish PC gaming.

It's free and it's awesome. It adds four new levels to battle through. On top of this, a patch was released last week that added some much needed features to Shattered Horizon such as in-game VOIP. The MPR has been tweaked, making it a better grenade choice and all the sound effects have had an overhaul; they're a lot meatier.

The game was one of my favorite releases of 2009 and the recent patch, and now this additional content make it even better!

shattered horizon, dlc,


Shattered Horizon is unlike any game I've played in 2009, and most likely anything else I'm going to play in the near future. In a genre (multiplayer team-shooter) where each game is trying to distinguish itself in some significant way from Modern Warfare or Team Fortress 2, Shattered Horizon takes a truly novel approach. You get one weapon with three attack modes, there is no gravity, and you're in a true three dimensional environment. At first glance the game seems to have very little to it, but there are many hidden subtleties that make Shattered Horizon a winner.

Updated the original post with that video. I dunno, I

I'd be surprised to see it get a client, unless that
client is optional. One of the selling points of GOG
that they kept going on about was that you didn't need
