THQ Nordic is giving those who own Titan Quest or Titan Quest: Immortal Throne on Steam a present, and for those who don’t own it, you’re getting it on the cheap.

The free upgrade will also be applied for those who own Titan Quest Gold. Users will find the game has automatically been added to their Steam library starting today.

Titan Quest Anniversary Edition contains both Titan Quest and Titan Quest: Immortal Throne, each completely reworked in terms of multiplayer, stability, performance, balancing, AI and more.

THQ Nordic said all of the changes made to the original version released 10 years ago add up to roughly 1,261.

Those who don’t own the game yet (for shame!) can pick up Titan Quest Anniversary Edition for $4.99 until September 7. After that, it will run you $19.99.

If you’re still confused how this will work, the publisher sent over images explaining things further.
