Steam: Gorgeous free RPG available to download and try right now

You can try this gorgeous RPG for free right now!

If you would like to play a gorgeous RPG for free, then we have you covered!

It seems nowadays, at least on consoles, playable demos are increasingly becoming few and far between. Granted, there are still playable demos on the likes of PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo Switch, but it doesn't feel quite as prominent as it was back in the day.

Check out The 7th Seal gameplay trailer below!

Yet, it seems digital storefronts on PC such as Epic Games and Steam still offer plenty of playable demos with a little something for everyone. Though Steam is also prone to loads of asset-flip shovelware, thankfully the demo featured in this article looks to be an absolute gem.

The game in question is The 7th Seal, not to be confused with the 1957 movie directed by Ingmar Bergman, The Seventh Seal. However, both the video game and movie do share a similar medieval theme, I guess. The demo is available to download now via Steam.

“The King is dead…,” reads the synopsis of The 7th Seal. “Years ago, after the passing of his beloved Heir, he bestowed six seals to the noble houses. The 7th seal is held in trust by the king's Steward. Your claim to the throne is as strong, if not more so, than that of the other nobles.

“To claim it, you must gather the six seals under one banner by any means necessary. Only then will the Steward award the 7th. The fate of the realm is at stake,” it continues. “Claim the throne... or bend the knee!”

So, exactly what kind of game is The 7th Seal? Developed by Legacy Gameworks, this gorgeous indie RPG is a: “tactical, turn-based strategy game that you enjoy on your own or with friends as you embark on an epic struggle to claim the empty throne.

“Claim the crown by developing your lands, increasing your strength, and making your rivals bend the knee! Engage in tactical, thoughtful strategy to conquer enemy territory. Force your foes to fight for your banner and aid you in claiming your rightful place on the throne.”

In related news, a Harry Potter star has returned for a free new Wizarding World RPG, and a ‘captivating’ 9/10 adventure game is free to download now.

At this time, The 7th Seal doesn't have a release date, but hey, at least we can try the game for free right now.
