Free Weekend: Lead and Gold [TRAILER]by Thomas Hruska on Jul. 23, 2010, under Arts
Yes, it is once again Friday and I won’t lie to you, the game Lead and Gold looks rather violent and seems to go overkill on the blood. It looks like a western team deathmatch third-person shooter. If you are able to stomach the advertised amounts of blood and want to try something that is only in beta, Lead and Gold is free to try and play this weekend and on sale for 50% off.
Here is the less bloody trailer:
There is a much more violent trailer on the Steam website. However, if anything, trailers can be misleading. The only way to tell for certain is to play the actual game.
Visit the Lead and Gold page on Steam to learn more and start preloading. It is also available for $7.49 for a single license and I believe this is the first non-Steam game to offer a four-pack deal at $22.48. If not, it is certainly the first non-Steam free weekend game to also offer a four-pack at a reasonable price.
According to Metacritic, this game is rated at 70% by the critics but users think it is rated at 89%.
