Launching on Steam’s early access, the action game Streamline will be available for free for a day on November 17.
Do you like free weekends–those blissful times when a title can be played free of charge for a period of time? Then you’re gonna love this! Every now and then, Steam holds special giveaways that let users snatch smaller games for free. Yes, you read that right. You click “play now” and it’s in your library at no additional cost! Left 4 Dead and Amnesia: The Dark Descent, alongside many other titles, have been available to the general public through these giveaways, and now it’s Streamline‘s time to shine.
A competitive action multiplayer game with deep Twitch integration, Streamline is being developed and published by Proletariat Inc., who previously developed World Zombination for iOS and Android. It’s not just another e-sport competitor, however, as most of its premise lies in all it offers to streamers and viewers. Streamline was built with live streaming in mind, providing tools for easy streaming and for watchers to follow the match. Featuring quirky and colorful designs reminiscent of Splatoon and Sunset Overdrive, as well as sick character customization options, the game takes place in a near future where a professional league, tired of mainstream sports and their intricacies, starts their own business. Players take the role of runners and hunters, with runners collecting points across the map while hunters track them down. On top of that, viewers can bet on competitors and change the rules of the game in real time.
Streamline became available for Windows PC on Steam’s early access on September 30, with patches being released consistently. For a day, starting November 17, those with a Steam account can grab a copy for free and keep them forever, so be sure to add it to your wishlist!
