This Weekend’s PC Game Deals is a roundup of games – old, new, or soon to be released – that are available at a great price and can be activated on Steam, Origin, or Uplay – sometimes even good old games that are DRM-free.
Just like last week, we have to remind you that the Humble Store currently has a deal for the passionate gamers who want to subscribe to their monthly package of gems for just $12/month. The subscription is called “Humble Monthly”, and if you subscribe before May 5, you’ll get a copy of Mad Max (currently $14.99 on Bundle Stars) as part of the first bundle, as well as a 10% discount on all purchases for as long as you stay subscribed.
The Humble Store also has two more interesting deals, one of which is “the Telltale Bundle”, which ends on April 26. The first tier can be unlocked for $1, and includes games such as Back to the Future and The Walking Dead: Season 1. If you’re willing to pay more than the average ($8.15 as of the moment of writing this article), you get access to the excellent Tales from the Borderlands and The Wolf Among Us, among other interesting titles.
If you don’t mind spending $12 or more, you’ll be treated with a copy of Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead: Season 2 – and best of all – you’d be contributing greatly to supporting two awesome charities: Direct Relief and Girls Who Code.
The last deal from the Humble Store is “the Devolver Bundle”. For just $1, you can get a copy of A Fistful of Gun, RONIN, and Gods Will Be Watching, as well as a 10% discount off the “Humble Monthly” subscription that we mentioned above. Pay more than the average ($4.75 as of the moment of writing this article), and you’ll unlock the excellent Shadow Warrior Special Edition and 50% off the critically-aclaimed The Talos Principle at the Humble Store (currently $45), among other things.
If you’re willing to spend $10 or more, know that you’d be helping the GamesAid and CareBox charities, and you’d be treated with a copy of Titan Souls and Hatoful Boyfriend: Holiday Star on top of everything you get at the lower tiers.
If you’re into Ubisoft’s popular franchises and ‘Ubicollectibles’, the company’s Spring Sale is still active for a few more days. The best deals (or “downloads of the moment”) will include Watch_Dogs (April 23-24), Trials Fusion (April 25-26), and their respective DLCs and special editions.
It’s important to note that this is only available for those of you living in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Africa and Oceania, and you’ll get a surprise extra with any “download of the moment” deal.
There are also plenty of other PC game deals available this week, and we’ve made a selection of titles that are either available at the lowest price since release, or somewhat close to the lowest price point. Some of them are flash sales – such as most of Bethesda’s titles, so act quickly.
