Side-scrolling open world RPG 'Regions Of Ruin' is FREE this weekend

By - | Views: 18,302

In the mood to play something new? How about a game that blends the side-scrolling of Kingdom and adds in some open-world RPG elements too? Regions Of Ruin is FREE until April 7.

When I say free, I mean it too. This is not a free weekend, if you add it to your Steam account you've got it forever. The developer said they've done this to just help people who are bored and at home due to COVID-19 lockdown. What a wonderful gesture.

Released originally back in 2018 with Linux support, the developer has since moved onto Meeple Station which will be leaving Early Access soon so this might even give their other game a boost. Take a look at the Regions Of Ruin trailer:

Just tried it's not grabbing me. Maybe I haven't played it enough to find the "fun" yet, or I'm just not in the right mindset, so I'll try again later.

I will say it does a very poor job of explaining how to sneak or use cover. I got through those parts of the tutorial and still don't know.

Correct the tutorial is not the best, but overall I have to say it is a really good game. I got hooked pretty quick and already have ~10 hours of playtime.
