Steam drops 8 RPGs you can download and play free this weekend

Download these free games today!

In this day and age of the seemingly never-ending cost-of-living crisis, it’s always nice to try some popular video games for free before parting with our hard-earned cash.

Thankfully, the Steam marketplace on PC is a vibrant platform stacked with many video games across all genres that we can try before we buy which leads us to today’s article. In the hope of saving you a few quid, I’ve compiled a list of eight free RPG playable demos that you can download right now and enjoy this weekend and beyond.

Check out the Sand Land trailer below!

Some of the free RPG demos that you can download today include the likes of Sand Land, Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden, and Final Fantasy XIV Online to name a few. Hopefully, you’ll discover at least one game that tickles your fancy.

In our review of Sand Land, GAMINGbible’s Sam said: “As someone who enjoyed the manga and the Disney+ series, I found it to be an admirable adaptation of its fantastic story, and being put into the driving seat of the tank and all the other vehicles was still good fun, even towards the end of the game.”

Here are eight RPGs that you can check out for free:

  • Sand Land: “is an action RPG where you become the main character as Beelzebub, a Fiend Prince. Lead your company of heroic misfits and explore the legendary world of Sand Land created by Akira Toriyama.”
  • Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden: “Hunt ghosts as two memorable characters in a story-driven Action-RPG where your decisions carry dramatic consequences. Torn between honouring your oath to the living and saving your departed partner, how far will you go for love?”
  • Final Fantasy XIV Online: “For newcomers, the Free Trial includes three award-winning titles. Join over 30 million adventurers online and experience an unforgettable story, exhilarating battles, and a myriad of captivating environments to explore.”
  • Octopath Traveler II: “In this faraway realm, eight travellers hailing from different regions venture forth for their own reasons. Step into their shoes and explore the land as you see fit, using their unique talents to aid you along your journey.”
  • Wordless: “is a stylised 2D platformer with a unique, active, turn-based combat system, and a mind-bending interpretative narrative.”
  • Deltarune: “Undertale's parallel story, Deltarune. Meet new and old characters in a tale that steps closer to its end, chapter by chapter.”
  • Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot: “Relive the story of Goku and other Z Fighters in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot! Beyond the epic battles, experience life in the Dragon Ball Z world as you fight, fish, eat, and train with Goku, Gohan, Vegeta and others.”
  • Soulmask: “Escaping a deadly sacrificial ritual, you find an ancient mystical mask on your journey. This mask holds potent knowledge, changing the world you knew.”

So, there you have it, those are my eight RPG picks for you to check out today. Have fun!
