Best PC gaming deals of the week

PUBG close quarters loadout.

It’s EGX week and I’m currently sat writing this article behind a set of flight cases in an isolated corner of the NEC, so you’ll have to forgive me if I keep this brief. As you may expect, we’ve got more deals to check out again this week, so let’s get right to them, shall we?

As usual, we’ve got deals that’ll work in the UK, deals that’ll work in the US and some deals that will work in both the UK and US, as well as presumably many other places. Let’s get started.

UK & US Deals

Phantom Halls has been available in Early Access for a while but this past week, something incredible happened. Phantom Halls got some free DLC. Not only that but officially licensed Evil Dead 2 free DLC at that. To celebrate Ash Williams and the gang getting in on the action, you can pick the game up at half price this weekend, which is extra nice.

Stardock is having a big ol’ sale over on Steam right now, lasting until the end of September 25th, to be precise.

Why did the soldier dies without being alarmed? Because it was SOCOM

Yoji Shinkawa is best known for his work as an artist and character designer on the Metal Gear Solid series. His style is so distinct that when Left Alive was unveiled earlier this week, it was clear as day that Shinkawa was involved. To celebrate that art style, you can now pre-order a massive, 800-page hardcover book detailing the Art of Metal Gear Solid from the PS1 through to the PS3, billed as a perfect companion to the already-released artbook for Metal Gear Solid V.

    If you’ve bought Gone Home, you should have received a 33% off coupon for Tacoma on Steam.
    And if you liked Gone Home, you’ll almost certainly enjoy Tacoma. Unless you don’t like space.

  2. Phantom_Renegade says:

    Is Jupiter’s Forge (from Offworld Trading Company) worth it for 8 euro’s? There are no real reviews on Steam and I can’t find an RPS review on it.

    Best Deal this week: link to FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

    • Unclepauly says:

      How do I install it?

        It is a Steam Code.

        On the Site: click on ‘Enter the … Plus Free Steam Code’
        Enter email- receive email with code- open/install steam -activate code in steam – install game in library – play game, preferably while wearing a conductor cap

  4. Darth Gangrel says:

    The Nemesis Bundle 3 on Bundlestars is the best bundle I’ve seen in a long time and certainly at their store, when they usually bundle one okay game together with several “Mostly negative reviews on Steam” games – and those are the good ones. They have dozens of only mediocre/bad game bundles.

    Recently bought the Capcom X SEGA X ATLUS Bundle, which also gave me several games I liked. So much for decreasing the backlog. That I’ve already traded some bundle games for games I’ll actually play some day is a small comfort.
