Steam free game available to download and keep via bizarre glitch

Steam free game available to download and keep via bizarre glitch

SEGA fans can grab a fantastic classic game on Steam for free thanks to this nifty glitch.

If you’ve been itching to get your hands on SEGA’S NiGHTS Into Dreams, then you’re in luck, my friend.

The company celebrated its 60th anniversary back in 2020 and to celebrate, made NiGHTS Into Dreams free for a limited-time.

Technically, that giveaway ended over three years ago but it's been pointed out by a nifty bargain hunter that you can actually trigger an error prompting the giveaway to work once more.

This handy trick was spotted by Reddit user AlexRends, quickly garnering hundreds of responses from many grateful fellow gamers.

If you attempt to sign-up via SEGA’s 60th anniversary celebration website, which is what you need to do to secure the game, you’ll be met with a URL that reads https://localhost:3000/.../ - but according to AlexRends, you just need to change localhost:3000 to in that URL and it should work, granting you access.

PlayStation Plus subscribers will soon be able to download Midnight Suns from the service’s extra tier.

Now that this glitch is gaining popularity online, there is every chance that SEGA could revisit the website and close the loophole so as the saying goes, act sooner rather than later.

“That’s actually really nice,” replied one commenter, while another added, “Thanks so much. This worked.”

NiGHTS Into Dreams is a SEGA classic, launching back in 1996 for the SEGA Saturn and created by the Sonic Team.

Players follow teenagers Elliot and Claris who find themselves transported to Nightopia, the world where dreams take place.

They must adopt the help of Nights, an exiled Nightmaren, if they want to stop the land’s evil ruler and escape.

Many consider it to be one of the greatest games of all-time, with plenty of players still enjoying NiGHTS Into Dreams to this day, albeit with some opting for the 2008 remaster over the original.

If you head on over to Steam, you’ll find plenty of positive reviews: “NiGHTS Into Dreams is an underrated gem that I think everyone should play through at least once.”

Grab NiGHTS Into Dreams while you can.
