While the fall season of new game releases is still a few months away, Steam’s latest round of discounts and free trials will ensure you can spend at least a portion of your weekend inside to beat the heat, especially if you’re a VR headset owner.

The latest deals and offers from Steam’s Weekend Deals have been released, with this week featuring the VR Weekend Sale, offering up to 80% off on VR-enabled games for devices such as the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, including Elite: Dangerous and many, many more.

Along with the VR Weekend Sale, Steam is also offering Free Game Weekends for two titles, with the previously-announced Rainbow Six: Siege to be holding a free weekend for the game and a discount (down to $24.99), while the survival hit Ark: Survival Evolved will be available to play for free this weekend and discounted by 50% (to $14.99).

Both titles will be available to play for free from now through Sunday at 1pm PT, while the discounts on both games will be running now through Monday at 10am PT.
