Half-Life headcrabs have infested Two Point Hospital's free weekend

Two Point Hospital, normally a bastion of cleanliness, has unfortunately become infested with Half-Life headcrabs. They're not the only things sneaking in from other games, either. Total War: Three Kingdoms, the Endless series and Football Manager 19 have all inspired objects that you can now plonk down inside your hospital. 

You can spruce up your rooms with football pitch rugs, arcade cabinets and some lovely new wall art. The headcrab, meanwhile, latches onto its victims, engulfing their heads. Thankfully, they can be yanked off by trained professionals, leaving the patient free from their nightmarish skull prison. 

Even if you don't own Two Point Hospital, you can still check out the new illness and guest items for yourself, as it's hosting a free weekend on Steam. It will run until 5 pm GMT on Monday. If you fancy keeping it after the weekend, it's be 33 percent off. Other Sega games are on sale, too, discounted by up to 90 percent. 

The new Pebberley Island DLC launches on Monday, as well, tasking hospital administrators with building in a hostile jungle and helping an eccentric explorer discover a spring of immortality.

With over a decade of experience, he's been around the block a few times, serving as a freelancer, news editor and prolific reviewer. Strategy games have been a 30-year-long obsession, from tiny RTSs to sprawling political sims, and he never turns down the chance to rave about Total War or Crusader Kings. He's also been known to set up shop in the latest MMO and likes to wind down with an endlessly deep, systemic RPG. These days, when he's not editing, he can usually be found writing features that are 1,000 words too long. He thinks labradoodles are the best dogs but doesn't get to write about them much.
