Best PC gaming deals of the week

weeks-best-deals-april-6th-feature-image

We look in shame upon the mound of empty chocolate packaging that suggests a break well-spent. We see the rows of eggs on store shelves practically being given away to clear space for whatever seasonal tat comes next. Yes, Easter for us may have been and gone but in the world of retail any holiday lasts thrice as long for the chance to squeeze out an extra purchase or two.

So, just before the sales come to a close, here are some of the week’s best deals in the world of gaming, tech and more.

UK & US Deals

razer-game-store-deals

Just when you think we’ve reached the breaking point of digital storefronts another one comes along nudging its way into the party. Now, it’s gaming peripheral manufacturer Razer’s turn, and they’ve opened the doors with some strong offers.

Not only can you get 15% off any game as your first purchase with the code ‘RGSLAUNCH15’, but if that game is either Far Cry 5, Ni no Kuni 2, Assassin’s Creed Origins or Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, you also get a £10 Razer Game Store Voucher, a £10 Razer hardware voucher and double the amount of their magical loyalty currency zSliver.

In terms of numbers, that’s Far Cry 5 for £38.24, Ni no Kuni 2 for £38.24, Assassin’s Creed Origins for £24.22 and Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus for £13.60. If none of those interest you there’s a whole library to browse and the code even works on pre-orders.

15% off your first purchase of any title at the Razer Game Store

gog-weekly-sale-6th

There’s another Weekly Sale happening over at GOG with up to 90% off titles such as Rogue Legacy, Iconoclasts, A Hat in Time and SteamWorld Dig 2. The first two Oddworld games are there for about a quid each too which is just silly.

Up to 90% off in the GOG Weekly Sale

this-war-of-mine-deal

This War of Mine is easily one of the most harrowing gaming experiences I’ve ever had: just one single run left me so emotionally exhausted yet also completely fulfilled that I’ve never been able to go back to it. There’s nothing that could live up to the story of my initial group of survivors. If you’ve not had the chance to play this stark war-torn survival sim yet, it’s free to play until the end of the week and available to buy for 70% off.

This War of Mine for free on Steam

UK Deals

liteon-ssd-deal

Upgrading to an SSD is undoubtedly one of the best value for money upgrades you can make to your PC. Windows boot times and game load times are so vastly improved you’ll struggle to think how you survived before then. Just think of all the seconds you’ll save for more gaming time.

LiteOn 2.5″ 480GB SSD for £84.92 from Ebuyer

arctis-3-overclockers-deal

Here’s a gaming headset that can do everything: whether you’re on PC, jumping on a console or want to take it on the road with your Switch. Comfortable and offering high-quality audio too, this is an excellent all-round headset for the price.

Steelseries Arctis 3 7.1 Surround Gaming Headset for £64.99 from Overclockers UK

sandisk-micro-sd-200gb-deal

The Nintendo Switch has had a belter of a first year and things only look set to continue in the same way through 2018. With the console’s limited in-built storage, you want a bulky SD card for all the big budget games and barrage of indies being ported over to the device. 200GB should suffice – at least for now.

SanDisk 200GB MicroSD card for £55.99 from Amazon UK

US Deals

call-of-duty-wwii-deal

Sledgehammer’s latest run at military FPS behemoth takes the series back to its roots with Call of Duty: WW2. Hey, great, we get to do that bit with the D-Day landing in Normandy again.

Call of Duty: WW2 on PC for $39.99 from Amazon US

tritton-kama-deal

For an all-round gaming headset to use on PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC and more, the Tritton Kama is a solid budget option at just $21.99.

Tritton Kama multi-platform gaming headset for $21.99 from Amazon US

xbox-live-spring-sale-deal

While the idea of Spring is yet to reach us over in the UK, Microsoft is well on board with the season in the US and has launched the Xbox Live Spring Sale. Discounts of up to 67% are available on games including Star Wars Battlefront 2, Assassin’s Creed Origins and Cuphead. Xbox Live Gold members get an extra 10% off too!

dishonored-death-of-the-outsider

Dishonored: Death of the Outsider is an excellent spin-off to Arkane’s steathy stab-em-up sequel. With a bit of voucher code trickery you can get a copy of the game for just $9.99. Just throw the code ‘EMCPTPU59’ in the basket.

Dishonored: Death of the Outsider on PC for $9.99 from Newegg

    It’s an “impressive” start for the Razer store where they can’t even show the correct price for Assassins Creed Origins on their Razer Exclusives page

    Shows (as of 11:50) as £27.99 but is actually £28.49

    I know RPS had an article specifically about it earlier, but I thought it was worth repeating it in a “best deals” article: Crusader Kings II is currently free and yours to keep forever on Steam if you grab it this week-end.

    Crusader Kings II is free on steam right now.

    Gotta pipe in again about the Arctis 7 headset. It’s the most uncomfortable thing I ever put on my head.

    If you’re a reptiloid and don’t have ear cartilage, it’s great, but the fact that the default ear cups it comes with let the speakers rest directly against your ears will become painful after the first half hour, with the pain settling in faster and becoming more intense with every session.

    I also found the sound really mediocre. I had to manually set it to music mode to have decent music, game mode for decent gaming, etc. Most other audio devices I’d had, even those that also had 7.1 sound, offered a default setting that worked adequately for whatever. For the price, the Arctis 7 should have an adequate ‘whatever’ mode.

    What is the game in the article’s main screenshot?
