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.

Humble Choice August 2021

A week into August, Humble now has a new selection of Choice games available to make your own bundle. The 12 latest games and links to their Steam pages are below:

The usual rules and prices apply unless you're a new subscriber, in which case there will always be discount promotions. Picking up three of the listed titles will set you back $14.99 as part of the Humble Choice Basic tier while picking nine games will cost $19.99. Adding to that, those still with active Humble Monthly subscriptions from back in the day can grab 10 games for $12.99 instead.

This specific selection of games will be available on the Choice subscription until September 7. It also offers members access to the Humble Trove of DRM-free games as well as a bonus 20% discount on items sold on the Humble Store.

Elsewhere on the store a regular gaming bundle also surfaced this week, one focused solely on roguelikes.

This Remarkable Roguelikes Bundle offers Blazing Beaks in the $1 tier, plus Synthetik: Legion Rising, Dungreed, and Curious Expedition in the average price tier — above $9 currently. Going for the final tier costing $10 will also net you Everspace, Heroes of Hammerwatch, and Hero Siege.

Epic Games Store is offering A Plague Tale Innocence and Minit for free this week

Another double game giveaway appeared on the Epic Games Store this week, however,
a last-minute game change meant a different combo appeared than originally announced. A Plague Tale: Innocence and Minit are currently being given away on the store, with Speed Brawl's free promotion being delayed.

Developed by Asobo Studio, A Plague Tale: Innocence is a stealth action-adventure game surrounding two siblings escaping the black plague (with hordes of rats) and Inquisition troops. A sequel is also incoming next year. Meanwhile, Minit is a minimalist adventure game where after only sixty seconds of playtime the world resets to the original point, and it's your task to lift this looping curse.

Ending the duos streak, it looks like next week will be a single game giveaway. Rebel Galaxy is coming in as the freebie on August 12 to replace the above titles.

Free Events
