THQ Nordic has turned 10 years old and they are celebrating their anniversary in a big way. They have numerous publisher sales going on currently with a lot of their biggest titles being on discount. Their real-time tactics game, Desperados III, is free-to-play on Steam through this weekend. The Titan Quest: Anniversary Edition and Jagged Alliance: Gold Edition are both free on Steam until September 23. Add them to your library and they are yours forever. And today, they held their 10th Anniversary Digital Showcase, where they announced 6 new games. So without further ado, let's talk about those games.

That wasn't all that was shown during the 36-minute showcase. We also got a new story trailer for ELEX II and a new look at the upcoming CRPG called Expitidions: Rome. To end the show, THQ Nordic didn't just do a "we have one more thing" they did a "we have a bunch more things" when they said on the final frame of the showcase that THQ Nordic (HandyGames not included) has 42 games in development, 28 of which are still announced. We'll have to wait to see what those games are, but I have a feeling there will be a lot more years ahead for the publisher. Happy 10th Anniversary!
