If you haven’t yet checked out the original Dungeon Siege, and perhaps missed Dungeon Siege II, here’s your chance to play through both. All you have to do is pre-purchase the third game, (the creatively-titled Dungeon Siege III) on Steam, and you’ll snag the earlier two single-player versions for free.
Dungeon Siege III is due out in mid-June, so you’ve got plenty of time to play through the earlier two action-RPGs and get your head into the right universe before tackling the new one.

David Hoffman, executive producer for Dungeon Siege III explains:
“Providing Dungeon Siege I and Dungeon Siege II free of charge through Steamworks is Square Enix’s way of showing appreciation to the fans of the Dungeon Siege franchise.
“Selecting Steamworks to be integrated into the upcoming title made perfect sense as we wanted to provide the best possible gameplay experience for PC gamers and long-standing fans of the series.”
He’s referring, of course, to the decision to include Steamworks features in all PC versions of the game, which will bring achievements, Steam Cloud support, auto-updates and easy DLC to the table. Handy, huh?
