Weekend PC game deals: Revised picks, a slew of bundles, and more
Weekend PC game deals is where the best game deals from all over the internet are brought together in one place, every week, for your consumption. So kick back, relax and keep your wallets.
Humble’s aptly named FXCK Cancer Bundle is the first special in the spotlight this weekend. The collection offers 13 games and no levels.
By paying $10 for this charity package, you get copies of World War Z: Aftermath, Dead by Daylight, Payday 2, Magicka, theHunter: Call of the Wild, Dungeon of the Endless, Homeworld Remastered Collection, Homeworld Deserts of Kharak, Little Nightmares, Brothers – A Tale of Two Sons, Red Faction: Armageddon, Peppy’s Adventureand Hamilton’s Great Adventure.
The bundle has a two-week timer before closing, and 100% of its profits are donated to cancer research and education.
Meanwhile, Humble’s Monthly Choice Pack has undergone an overhaul, removing the choice element altogether. Instead of multiple tiers and having to choose from a pile of games, you now get the whole bundle for one price, like in the days of Humble Monthly.
The lot presents Borderlands 3 as the headliner, which is joined by its Director’s Cut DLC, Black Book, Per Aspera, Just Die Already, Before You Go, Paradise Lost, Everhood, and Calico like its February offerings.
Since this is only one tier, the price is $11.99 for all nine items. Being a subscriber is now a requirement to slowly build the Humble Store discount, unlike before. It also has a collection of DRM-free games as an advantage. However, you need a separate app to download the games.
Fanatical’s bundle space also received updates this week, giving you time to customize another Platinum collection as well as a charity bundle.
The build-it-yourself set offers 16 choices, with the highlights being Supraland, Barotrauma, The Walking Dead: A New Frontier, Neighbors Back from Hell, and killer is dead. It offers three games for $9.99, five games for $14.99, or seven for $19.99.
Moving on to the Safe in Our World Charity Pack, it comes with 13 games and two DLC packs, all for $8.99 or whatever you decide to donate. It wears red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered, Titan Quest Anniversary Edition, GRIP: Combat Racing, Payday 2, and more games.
Epic Games also didn’t miss this week with its freebie, replacing Demon X Machina with a copy of Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair. Keep in mind that you might already have a copy in your library if you’ve been diligently picking up free games for a few years now.
It is a 2.5D side-scrolling platformer created by Playtonic Games, and creative talents of the classic donkey kong country are involved here as well. The title puts you in the shoes of Yooka the Chameleon and his bat pal Laylee to free the members of Beetalion and ultimately survive a run through the Impossible Lair.
Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair will remain free to claim until Thursday, February 10, and the next freebie is a copy of the survival RPG Windbound.
With the end of the Lunar New Year sales, free events are back on the menu. First, EA’s Free Chests Weekend for The Sims 4, letting you try out the newest entry in Maxis’ life-sim franchise as the studio celebrates The Sims’ 22nd birthday.
On the other hand, if first-person shooters are more your type, world war 3 is currently performing a public stress test. This is to prepare for the next free beta in March. Head over to the Steam store page here and click the Request Access button to get started.
Below is our list of big highlights offers, which is populated with many weekend specials happening right now, including games made in Quebec, from EA, as well as latecomers on sale. Lunar New Year. Also, don’t forget the $10 coupon from Epic Games, which can only be used once this race.
The DRM-free offerings coming from the GOG store this weekend are mostly strategy games. Here are some highlights:
Keep in mind that the availability and prices of certain offers may vary depending on the region you are in.
And that’s it for our pick of this weekend’s PC game deals for everyone, and hopefully some of you have enough self-restraint not to break the bank by adding new games to your ever-increasing arrears. Of course, there are a huge number of other offers ready and waiting if you scour the interwebs enough, so keep your eyes peeled for those and have a great weekend.
