Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed New Character, Free Weekend and Sale

Some interesting news regarding Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, the game received a patch on July 3rd that added a new character! From Company of Heroes 2 comes General Winter, a Russian general who drives a modestly sized tank. His boat is a submarine and his plane is... well, a small nondescript plane. It kinda looks like the one from Diddy Kong Racing... anyway, General Winter isn't DLC, he's a completely free new addition to the PC version of the game.

Also, for those of you wary of picking up Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed on Steam, now's your chance to try it out. The game is free for the weekend on Steam, and if you decide to buy it, it's also on sale for $7.49 until July 8th. Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed blends fast paced arcade racing with other arcade elements taken from games such as Wave Race or After Burner. It's a really good experience and since the Steam version actually has online multiplayer this time, as well as four exclusive characters (Football Manager, Shogun, Team Fortress and General Winter), I'd recommend picking it up.
