GamersGate to offer free and legal games
Saturday 11 June 2011
Download gaming site GamersGate is setting up a FreeGames initiative, allowing users to play for free on Mac and PC thanks to an ad-supported service.
The new venture is intended to launch September 2011, with a public beta access available from mid-June.
Participants will be shown an advert each time they start one of their free games.
GamersGate boasts over 3,000 titles in its online catalogue, from low-budget indie games ( Super Meat Boy, Lume) to blockbusters ( Assassin's Creed, GTA), but is yet to specify which ones will be caught up in the FreeGames extravaganza.
