You’ve been stuck in the house for the better part of two months. If you’re a gamer, the odds are pretty strong that with all that time on your hands, you’ve already effectively smashed every game in your current library.
It’s well past time for some new challenges. And we’d suggest that with a wealth of gaming history to feed that appetite, you can satisfy that urge for a ridiculously low price. So we’ve assembled eight games, some new, some classic, yet all with some big discounts that should present some much-needed new challenges.
Star Wars…ever heard of it? On top of being part of one of the most popular brands in the world, these two games — Knights of the Old Republic and Knights of the Old Republic II — are two of the most honored games of the century so far. The industry showered awards on these prequels set 4,000 years before Luke, Leia and Han, in which a lone surviving Jedi seeks to restore order to a galaxy beset by evil Sith Lords. Best of all, you get both or under $5.
If you’ve been gaming in the past decade, you know the madcap action and zany characters of Borderlands. The Handsome Collection brings together two of the franchise’s biggest hits: Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, which allows players to hunt for treasure and other rare antiquities across the wild world of Pandora, happily blasting away as they go. Each game is a $30 value, now you can get both for under $10.
If strategy and world-building turns your gears more than mayhem and adrenaline, look no further than the granddaddy of classic decision-making gaming, Sid Meier’s Civilization. A 30-year gaming staple, these packages include the latest installments in the long-running series that tasks you to safely guide a world from prehistoric times through centuries of societal and technological advancements.
You can save $10 off the price of the 2019 Sid Meier’s Civilization VI: Gathering Storm standalone expansion; or get the best value by grabbing the entire Sid Meier’s Civilization VI: Platinum Edition epic, which not only includes Gathering Storm, but also the full Civilization VI, six DLC packs, and the Rise and Fall expansion module. With Sid Meier’s Civilization V, you can go back even further and get everything released for the series’ fifth installment, all for just $12.50.
This game is a trip as you explore the beautiful world of the Inverse, a place where civilizations, oceans and the basic laws of physics aren’t quite like our world. As visually impressive as it is engaging, you fly through this incredible world, trying to piece together its rich, action-packed history…and now, it’s 75 percent off.
In Lightmatter, you need to stay in the light — because the shadows themselves are deadly. Players have to be pretty ingenious to keep coming up with ways to generate light and escape the dark as they make their way through a dilapidated building to the center of the mystery of the Lightmatter power source.
The future of 2084 isn’t a great place in Observer. As war and decay rage around you, you play an Observer, a neurally-enhanced police detective who can actually hack the minds of criminals and victims. Of course, there’s more to those visions than meets the eye — and as reality unravels, you’ll start to see why this psychological horror tale was named to Game Informer’s Top 10 Cyberpunk Games of All-Time list. You can also try it for under $10.
