Best PC gaming deals of the week – August 31st 2018

Deals for the deal god

Featured post

We’ve arrived at yet another Friday, and as the eternally influential Rebecca Black once said, you’ve got to get down on Friday. As far as I remember that was more of a demand than advice, so here we are, attempting to get down with some of the best PC gaming deals of the week from all the way around the web and back again.

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.


Giveaway time once more, friends. To celebrate not only the release of Destiny 2’s Forsaken DLC but GamesPlanet’s associated discounts on the game, the site has joined forces with Jelly Deals once more to offer up three copies of the Destiny 2 Legendary Collection on PC to a trio of lucky readers. If you’d like to be in with a chance of winning, you can enter via the link below.

If you don’t fancy your chances, GamesPlanet is offering a series of discounts using the code FORSAK10. That nets you 13% off Forsaken, and 19% off the Legendary and Complete editions.

Humble’s giving away a free game again – this time around, you can claim a free copy of Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine for a limited time. It’s honestly worth it just to hear all of the enemies in the game shout “spayce mahreen” in their space-cockney accents every 30 seconds.

This is in celebration of Humble’s brand new (though, perhaps slightly late) Summer Sale range, which features games from Ubisoft, Sega, 2K and more.

Voidu is offering 25% off everything they sell over this weekend when you use the rather ominous code LASTWEEKEND at checkout. Given that this discount applies to everything in the store, it might be a good chance to pick up Two Point Hospital, Yakuza 0, pre-orders of Soul Calibur 6, and more.

Green Man Gaming’s offer of fifty games for £50 / $50 / €50 is still running this week, and you’ll be benefitting UK-based charity GamesAid if you pick it up. Titles include Metal Gear Solid 5, This War of Mine, Human Fall Flat, Rage, The Little Acre, Arkham Asylum, and more.

In case you missed the announcement earlier this week – Microsoft is releasing a new Elite Controller in October! Well, truthfully, Microsoft is releasing the same Elite Controller as they did before, but now it’s in ‘Robot White’ to match with the fancy white Xbox One S and X models. It can be pre-ordered directly from Microsoft now if you like and, just like the previous controller, works on PC via USB or the Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows 10.

You’ve got mere days left in order to pick up the current batch of Humble Monthly games with a subscription. 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. Alternatively, you can trade the three aforementioned games for a copy of Rise of the Tomb Raider.
