Palo Alto, Calif., October 28, 2011 – OnLive, Inc., the pioneer in cloud gaming, is celebrating this Halloween weekend with a spectacular deal, taking four highly popular games and making them free to play through All Hallows Eve. From 4 p.m. PDT today through Monday, October 31st at Midnight, PDT, Amnesia: The Dark Descent, F.E.A.R 3, Metro 2033, and Orcs Must Die will all be absolutely free to play on OnLive, both in the U.S. and the UK.
All Halloween weekend long players will have the option of logging on via PC, Mac, or the OnLive Game System to play any – or all – of these four games for free. No discs, no downloads, just instant high-quality gameplay regardless of device. In addition, as a special bonus, if you Like OnLive on Facebook (www.facebook.com/onlive) you can play a fifth mystery game which will be announced on Halloween!
If you like the sinister and ominous, explore the unsettling world of Amnesia: The Dark Descent where nothing is quite as it seems and your lost memories hold horrors too dark to face.
Is supernatural FPS more your speed? Jump into co-op or multiplayer versions of F.E.A.R. 3 as either Point Man or his nemesis, Paxton Fettel, as you race to undo the psychic damage left by the events of F.E.A.R. 2.
If you like the sound of a suspenseful post-apocalyptic FPS, take a shot at Metro 2033. You survived the nuclear destruction of the planet, but you live below ground, haunting what used to be the Moscow metro system. You band together with other survivors to protect your station from mutants, rival humans, and any other threats that may arise. And a new threat has arisen that might destroy what little is left of your world—a threat that is slowly invading your mind.
Dive into the brand new indie hit, Orcs Must Die and defend your fortresses against the onslaught of marauding orcs. Recently released on October 11, 2011, this quirky and addictive game has already garnered great reviews from both Joystiq and IGN.
“There’s a little something for everyone during OnLive’s Free-Play Halloweekend and the best part is we’re giving everyone free access to four terrific games all weekend long,” said Matt Jensen, OnLive Community Manager. “Whether it’s horror, FPS, multiplayer or action that you’re looking for, play for free on us, and make sure you ‘Like’ us on Facebook because we’re making a fifth game available on Halloween that will be free to play all day and night.”
