The Sega 60th Anniversary Sale is live on Steam! Sega is giving away copies of Sonic The Hedgehog 2 completely for free, but that's not all — it also promises to deliver "exclusive free mini-games" that will only be around for a limited time.

Sega has a long history in the gaming world. It's earlier operations focused on arcades and a foray into console development, but the company's console hardware aspirations came to an end with the death of the Sega Dreamcast. Since then, Sega has focused on developing and publishing the great games that the company has been known for.

Now, the Sega 60th Anniversary Sale will let gamers on Steam grab up some of Sega's greatest games at a discount — along with some neat freebies.

What Are the Sega 60th Anniversary Sale Free Games?

The first of the Sega 60th Anniversary sale free games is a classic: you can get Sonic The Hedgehog 2 free on Steam right now. I encountered difficulty adding this game at first, but it eventually worked. When it does work, it will be added to your library in SEGA Mega Drive & Genesis Classics game. It should be noted that there are a limited number of copies being given away — if you're remotely interested in playing this game, don't wait to get your free copy!

Sega has also devised a rather interesting hook to get people to check out its sale. "Exclusive free mini-games" will be given away every day from October 15–18, 2020. These games were created specifically for the Sega 60th Anniversary sale — once they're gone, they''re gone.

Naturally, a boatload of Sega's games are also available at a discount. Nearly every Sega game on steam is on sale with discounts as high as 90%, although the vast majority of games are 75% off. Notably, Total War: WARHAMMER II is having a free weekend for the next three days; you can buy the game to keep it for $20.39, a 66% discount.

Check out all of the great games available in the Sega 60th Anniversary sale on Steam! This sale is all set to end on October 19, 2020, at 1:00 PM EDT.
