The Desperados universe now has a free tabletop role-playing game to check out. It's a collaborative project between Mimimi Games, Pegasus Games, and THQ Nordic, and it's completely free to download on DriveThruRPG right now.

The Pegasus Press description of Desperados: A Pen and Paper Roleplaying Game says it aims to combine the challenging tactics of Desperados III with the freedom of choice that comes with playing tabletop role-playing games. If you're rustlin' to pick it up, you'll get an illustrated rulebook outlining how to play, as well as a complete first adventure to get you started on the dusty trail. You'll also get printable character sheets, as well as some maps and some tokens to help illustrate your play sessions. If you're still wondering how to get started, you can check out this "how to" video from Geek and Sundry host Becca Scott.

According to THQ Nordic, Desperados 3 - the latest in the long-running Desperados series of tactical strategy games - has performed "quite successfully" across all platforms. If you still haven't checked it out, there's a free demo up on the game's GOG page right now. It's also available via Steam and on Xbox One, with a PS4 demo on the way soon. We were pretty big fans of Desperados 3, so we'd heartily recommend you give the demo a shot from yer six-shooter. In the meantime, why not download the pen and paper RPG and give it a go with some friends? After all, it won't cost you a dime of your hard-earned bounty-huntin' cash.
