Weekend PC Game Deals is where the hottest gaming deals from all over the internet are gathered into one place, every week, for your consumption. So kick back, relax, and hold on to your wallets.
The biggest deal highlight of this weekend is Humble's new Heal: COVID-19 Bundle and its jampacked offerings. Lasting only one week, the bundle touts that 100% of its proceeds are going to charities focused on providing relief to pandemic hard-hit countries such as India and Brazil.
There are over 20 games included here from a variety of genres. Some highlights are BioShock Remastered, Into the Breach, Undertale, The Witness, Hyper Light Drifter, Baba is You, Euro Truck Simulator 2, Saints Row: The Third - The Full Package, SUPERHOT, and Titan Quest Anniversary Edition. Adding to that, the collection also offers several books and software to plump it up even more.
This charity bundle is slated to close on May 19, and the minimum amount you can pay to grab all its contents is $20.
The Epic Games Store giveaway this week is a copy of The Lion's Song, an indie title that released in 2016 from Mi'pu'mi Games.
While the original release followed an episodic format, the Epic version delivers the complete edition including all four episodes. Each slice explores the personal struggles of a different character with an "exceptional mind" – a composer, an artist, a mathematician, and a writer –, and players' decisions determine if they reach their goals.
The Lion's Song is free to claim through May 20. As for what's coming next, it may be a rather high-profile adventure, as Epic Games is keeping the freebie's identity a secret till it is ready to be given away.
Changing course back to bundles, alongside Heal, Humble is also hosting a games bundle that touts tactical experiences. Coming with the descriptive name Deckbuild & Battle Bundle, it hands you seven games if you opt for the complete collection.
But right at the start, the $1 tier will get you a copy of Thea: The Awakening. You'll need to bump up to the average price tier to ramp up the offerings a bit, which adds Cultist Simulator and SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech for around $9 currently.
Going all-in will cost you $12, and expands your library further with Imperator: Rome, Thea 2: The Shattering, Fantasy General II, and Neoverse. The bundle has two weeks left on its timer before it goes away, and since Humble went back on its controversial charity money split decisions, you can choose where your funds go using the familiar sliders.
The garden variety free events have gone on break again, but IO Interactive has brought in another Hitman mission to try out for free in the meantime for your infiltration needs.
By grabbing the Hitman 3 - Free Starter Pack, you can now jump into The Icon mission set in Sapienza – a bonus mission from the first game in the trilogy. The location has been transformed into the set of a superhero movie, and your target – as Agent 47 – is the director and lead actor Dino Bosco.
The Icon will remain the free mission on the Start Pack through May 23.
Several publisher promotions carry most of this weekend's discounts, with Versus Evil, Team17, and Humble Store joining in. A Bethesda sale is happening right now too, but unfortunately, most of the discounts aren't anything to get excited about when compared to previous lows.
