Simply navigate to their Steam pages during the sale and enjoy that 100% discount. Titan Quest is an enhanced version of the 2006 Diablo-like action-RPG, while Jagged Alliance is a tactical squad-based strategy game from 1994.
Desperados 3 is also free, but only for a limited time until September 20. Afterwards you’ll need to purchase it (60% off).
THQ Nordic was originally founded as Nordic Games, adding THQ to the name when their parent company acquired the trademark from the defunct THQ American company in 2014. They’ve brought back many of THQ’s games and series, including Titan Quest, Darksiders, and Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. Their next big upcoming game is Elex 2, a sci-fi open-world RPG.
