We all love playing video games, but with new titles going for $60 or more depending on the edition, the hobby gets expensive fast. Thankfully, many gaming retailers have regular sales to save you money. But even so, it’s hard to know if you’re getting the best deal available at any given time. To help solve that problem, we’ve gone through the week’s video game sales and highlighted the best game deals for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Before looking at the discounts, though, you should make sure you’ve picked up all the free games you can get. PlayStation Plus members can download some fantastic games for free this month, including Destiny 2 (for next month’s freebies, see the video above). Xbox Live Gold subscribers can also grab a few freebies right now, and if you’re an Amazon Prime member, you can get five free PC games from Twitch.
With that out of the way, let’s look at this week’s best discounts on individual games.
Madden NFL 19
The latest installment of the best football game franchise around is $20 off this week.
The Last of Us Remastered
September 26, 2013 was Outbreak Day, the day the fungus zombies in The Last of Us took over the country. Each year, Naughty Dog celebrates Outbreak Day by putting The Last of Us Remastered on sale.
Rise of the Tomb Raider – 20 Year Celebration
Lara Croft’s latest adventure is now available, but if you missed out on her previous journey, you can pick it up for cheap this week.
The Binding of Isaac Afterbirth+
A roguelike inspired by classic Zelda games, The Binding of Isaac has you pick up all kinds of weapons and abilities as you explore a monster-filled cellar–just try not to step in the piles of poo.
Star Wars Battlefront II
No big Star Wars games are coming anytime soon, but if you missed out on this online shooter, you can get it now for a nice price.
Like the previous entries in this strategy series, Civilization VI starts you out with a small settlement and has you build it into a colossal world power.
Sea of Thieves
Join up with friends, hop on a ship, and plunder the isles in this shared-world game from Rare.
Music/rhythm games might seem passé now that the plastic instrument fad is over, but Thumper doesn’t bear much resemblance to anything that came before. This is a trippy, hard-hitting rhythm game that requires deep concentration and is guaranteed to get your blood pumping.
