Looking for some new games to play this weekend? You’re in luck. Developer Gameloft is offering two of its premium titles, N.O.V.A. 3 and Gangstar Rio, for free this weekend in the App Store. Picking up both titles would normally set you back US$12 so jump on this deal quickly.
Gangster Rio is a 3D sandbox game in the spirit of Grand Theft Auto, complete with vehicles, combat, and all the moral ambiguity you’d expect from a crime simulator. With over 60 missions, locations based on Rio de Janeiro, and even an exploding football that as a weapon, Gangster Rio has a lot to offer for exploration.
First person shooter fans should give N.O.V.A. 3 a spin for both single and multiplayer modes. The main storyline takes place over 10 levels of sci-fi combat, while the multiplayer is rounded out by 7 different play modes and support for up to 12 players. Most impressively the game has in-game chat for talking to your friends while you play.
Each game has micro-transaction options for beefing up your bankroll and ammo, so maybe this weekend you will pass some of your savings from the free download into buying new weapons and vehicles. Or just revel in the knowledge that you got two free games. Either way act quickly, as this deal will be over soon.
