On Steam This Week: Gone Home, Payday 2, and More

Marcus Estrada

If you don't use Steam then you may very well be missing out on a lot of PC gaming content this week. A whole host of new games were added and at least a few would make excellent additions to your collection.


First, is Catan: Creator's Edition. This digital version of the popular board game includes the main game as well as expansions Seafarers and Cities & Knights. Curious gamers can check it out for $15.29 until the 10% off sale ends.


DuckTales: Remastered is the game many nostalgic fans have been waiting for. It has hit most major platforms already and Steam was no exception. As you might expect, this version has gamepad support as well. Without a discount, the game is available for $14.99.


Tacticians are probably more interested in Europa Universalis IV. According to buzz, this is by far the best rendition of the empire-building strategy series yet. Unfortunately, there are no discounts currently available for the game or its DLC. The game is going for $39.99.


A game seeing a lot of press right now is Gone Home, which just came out this week. We reviewed it highly due to its creative storytelling techniques as well as the story it does tell. If you're willing to give it a shot then pick it up for $17.99 while the title is 10% off.


Guncraft is the latest Minecraft-looking title to land on Steam. Of course, it isn't Minecraft, but a game with voxel graphics focused around shooting other players. It's simplistic but possibly fun. It costs $14.99 if you're interested.


Hammerwatch is a game that was made available on Steam thanks to Greenlight. The hack and slash game can be played in single or multiplayer locally or online and looks like a great bit of fun. Right now it is 10% off, making the game $8.99 for one copy and $26.99 for a four pack.


One of the big releases of the week is PAYDAY 2. Coming a while after the original, it ups the ante with more exciting robberies as well as ways to handle them. The game can be purchased now for $29.99 or $89.99 for a four pack, which definitely comes in handy.


Warhammer 40,000 fans might just want to grab Space Hulk. It's a turn based strategy title set in the 40K universe and is available in single or multiplayer modes. You can buy it for $29.99 or get two copies at the slight discount of $49.99.


Worms Clan Wars is the latest in the long-running Worms franchise that is now out on PC. All the upgrades you might expect are included (such as more worm types and weapons). You can pick it up for $24.99 but the main allure of Worms is always multiplayer, so try to enlist a friend as well.
