Lead & Gold, Shattered Horizons free to play this weekend on Steam

Happy holidays, everybody! Oh, you didn't hear? This weekend is apparently "Frontier Weekend," according to Steam. We suggest you celebrate accordingly: By donning your raccoon-skin cap, boarding up in your log cabin and playing some Lead & Gold: Gangs of the Wild West and Shattered Horizon, both of which are free to play on the gaming platform starting later this evening and running until Sunday.

If you decide you'd like to continue playing the two multiplayer-centric titles once this esteemed holiday has come and gone, you can purchase both titles this weekend in a single bundle, at the significantly reduced price of $12.49. Or, in frontier currency, two pounds of rabbit meat and a medium-sized wagon wheel. What a bargain!
