This Weekend's PC Game Deals: Here are the best back to school offers

This Weekend's PC Game Deals is a roundup of games - old, new, or soon to be released - that are available at a great price and can be activated on Steam, Origin, or Uplay - sometimes even good old games that are DRM-free.

AAA games with stunning visuals and physics may be all the rage these days, but there are lots of timeless classics that are still worth playing - and thanks to Origin Store’s “On the House” promotion, you can get some of them free of charge. Such is the case with Nox – an RPG from 2000 that is currently available as a free download for a limited time.

Speaking of “on the house” games, Ubisoft has a similar promotion of their own. Called ‘Ubi 30’, it celebrates the company’s 30th anniversary as a game publisher, and the way it works is that each month for the rest of 2016, Ubisoft will offer one free game for download, to help gamers “re-discover” legendary titles.

The only things you’ll need are a Uplay account and the Uplay client, and you’re set to get this month’s freebie, Rayman Origins. If 2D side scrollers are not your cup of tea, the good news is that Ubisoft will give away four other games this year - previous Ubi 30 giveaways were Prince of Persia and Splinter Cell.

There are several deals available this weekend, and we’ve made a selection of the very best out there. Some of them are flash sales, so act quickly if you don’t want to miss them. If you're looking for console games, take a look at the list of Xbox Games with Gold for September, and there's still time to download some of this month's games as well.
