Best PC gaming deals of the week – August 24th 2018

Dealer's choice

Featured post

If you’re in the UK, this weekend is one of those three-day affairs thanks to the August Bank Holiday finally arriving. While that probably means you’ll have an extra day to spend nursing a hangover, it’s also a chance to get in more time treating yourself. Case in point: I’m likely to spend a truly unhealthy portion of this weekend immersed in Shenmue HD, because I’m a glutton for both nostalgia and tedium. In the meantime, however, we’ve got another batch of gaming deals to check out, so let’s get to that.

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

This week, you can not only get yourself a whopping fifty games for £50 / $50 / €50, but you’ll also be benefitting UK-based charity GamesAid while you do it. Titles include Metal Gear Solid 5, This War of Mine, Human Fall Flat, Rage, The Little Acre, Arkham Asylum, and more.

Humble’s got a batch of horror games up for grabs in the aptly titled ‘Humble Spooky Horror Bundle 2018’, just in time for a really, really early Halloween party. Pay $15 (£11.61) or more and you’ll get the similar-game double whammy of Friday the 13th and Dead by Daylight.

Wolfenstein 2 has been out for almost a year now but it’s still one of the first games I would recommend someone play if they needed something new to delve into. Currently, you can pick up a copy of the game as a Steam key for £14.71 / $18.92 from Gamebillet.

The Square Enix Collective is a subset of Square Enix’s publishing arm that focuses on some interesting and out-of-the-norm indie games, and right now you can save up to 75 per cent off a range of its offerings at Humble, including the wonderful Forgotton Anne.

Now that we’re into August, it’s time for another fresh set of games up for grabs with a Humble Monthly membership. This time around, you can spend £10 / $12 and get instant access to Sniper Elite 4, Tales of Berseria and Staxel. Then, once the month finishes up, you’ll get a stack of other games, too.

Overwatch being the obscure indie game that it is, you may not have heard of it until now. If so, you can grab a digital copy on PC for just under $20 and see what all those gaming blogs are talking about.

LEGO Advent Calendars are, year after year, one of the highest selling advent calendars around. As such, they actually tend to sell out a few months before December itself. With that in mind, they’re now up for order at IWOOT, starting at £23.
