Weekend PC Game Deals: Bundled VR gems, tactical freebies, and more

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 VR bundle

Humble is known for its high-value virtual reality bundles, and it is time for another showing. The new Humble Must-Play VR Bundle comes touting eight games for headset owners, all split into three tiers.

The $1 tier has only Vanishing Realms but going up to the $10 second tier adds Traffic Jams, Down the Rabbit Hole, Propagation VR's co-op DLC pack, and PowerBeatsVR. There is no average price tier this time.

Tier three finishes things off with copies of Pistol Whip, Ragnarock, Vacation Simulator, and a 25% discount coupon for After the Fall.

You have plenty of time to ponder this bundle too, as its expiry date is over two weeks away. If VR is not your style, Humble is also running a Game Night bundle with digital board game adaptations containing hits like Ticket to Ride, Splendor, as well as a bunch of their premium addons, all for around $12.

XCOM 2 and Insurmountable free on Epic

Epic Games Store's double giveaway streak continues, and this week, it is having another quite special promotion. You can currently grab free copies of XCOM 2 and Insurmountable.

Firaxis Games' acclaimed XCOM 2 delivers a turn-based tactics experience that has your guerilla group of agents going up against an alien force occupying Earth. Meanwhile in Insurmountable you take the role of a lonely mountaineer tackling procedurally generated mountains, and there's permadeath involved.

The XCOM 2 and Insurmountable giveaways will last until Thursday, April 21, and coming up next as freebies are copies of Riverbond and Amnesia: Rebirth on the same date.
