Currently one of several deals on Steam right now, Orion: Dino Beatdown Orion: Dino Horde is free to play this weekend and will actually extend that for a few more days. Additionally, the game itself is up at a staggering 93% discount, which is just one step up from being free, really.
It costs as little as $0.99 for a copy, while a 4-pack costs only $2.99. That’s the price of currently cheap indie titles. You may want to step on the 4-player deal, as Orion: Dino Horde is a multiplayer-focused defense game, where you protect a base against waves of predators. This is done in a first-person shooter model, with some vehicle designs borrowed from Halo.
Orion: Dino Horde has actually been free for the last two days now. It passed so far under the radar that we didn’t even notice it ourselves, so sorry about that. It’s currently one of the lower rated Steam games, due to its development history. Originally, the game was brought out with one name in a fairly unfinished build. This lead critics to blast the shooter down to oblivion. It was released prior to the whole Early Access thing.
Still, Orion: Dino Horde then kept reiterating its process, also like an Early Access game, fixing gross artificial intelligence (AI) issues, adding content and so on. Its free weekend is actually a salute to players to jump back on board as the multiplayer game moves from Orion: Dino Horde to Orion: Prelude. Yup, it’s once more changing tags.
People who purchase the game now at its ridiculous discount will have the game updated to Orion Prelude automatically. It will have a ton more content, bots and Steam Workshop as well. You might want that.
You can either purchase Orion: Dino Horde on Steam or follow instructions on the developer site. We recommend the latter option, as it’s cheaper for Europeans, for what it’s worth, but also favors the developers for the full amount.
