Total War: Shogun 2  is free on Steam so stay safe, stay inside and stay a while in Sengoku-era Japan.

Sega and Creative Assembly want you to #StayHome and #SaveLives. To that end, Total War: Shogun 2, the beloved 2011 entry in the long-running strategy series, is up for grabs on Steam.

“If you ever find yourself thinking about the political climate in 16th century Japan, now might be the time to find out how you’d fare as a clan leader fighting to become Shogun,” reads a tweet on the official Total War Twitter account.

The game is free through May 1. You’ll need a Steam account to claim the game. In addition, a Total War franchise sale is offering discounts on selected games and DLC until May 4.

Once you’ve done that, be sure to head over to the Epic Games Store where For the King is free until Thursday.
