Lead and Gold is free to play but not free-to-play

, | News

Before there was Vermintide, the very good Left 4 Dead But With Warhammer Rats, there was Lead and Gold. In 2010, developer Fatshark released a very good Western-themed multiplayer shooter with unique character classes, carefully built multiplayer modes, and an absence of unlockable hats. No one played it.

Now that Vermintide is presumably paying the bills — the latest DLC was released a month ago — Fatshark is feeling magnanimous; they’re handing out copies of Lead and Gold for free. Well, at least the first 100,000 copies. Get yours here. You can even find populated servers online.
