Weekend PC Game Deals: Drift and Rage through specials, bundles, 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.

Absolute Drift and Rage 2 are free on the Epic Games Store

A freebie double dose is here from the Epic Games Store this week to replace last week's Halcyon giveaway. You can now grab Rage 2 and Absolute Drift: Zen Edition to expand your free games-filled Epic library.

Jointly developed by Avalanche Studios and id Software, Rage 2 arrives as an open-world shooter set in a post-apocalyptic world where you have powerful weapons, special abilities, and vehicular combat for taking down enemies. To calm down a little after a Rage session, Absolute Drift arrives as a top-down driving game that, as evident by its name, solely focuses on drifting. The minimalist title features 34 levels with three game modes alongside free-roaming spaces and leaderboards.

The double drop is yours to claim until Thursday, February 25, and incoming next as a freebie to the Epic Games Store is Sunless Sea.

Humble Plugin Digital bundle promo

Another Humble gaming bundle made its debut this week, and this one is made up mainly of Plug In Digital-published titles. The 12-game bundle is split into three tiers as usual.

In the first tier, you get copies of Hover, Anarcute, and NeuroVoider for paying at least $1. Choosing the average price tier, which currently stands at around $5.50, brings in Dead In Vinland, Chroma Squad, Epistory - Typing Chronicles, Sundered: Eldritch Edition, and Plane Mechanic Simulator.

The final tier comes in at $10 and gets you WRC 8 FIA World Rally Championship, TT Isle of Man, Sigma Theory: Global Cold War, and Tennis World Tour alongside all of the games in the previous tiers. With this bundle's arrival, Humble now has three concurrent gaming bundles available, with the other two being the Train Sim Expedition and Digital Tabletop collections.

Fanatical Bundlefest promo

Fanatical has a strong bundle showing this week thanks to its latest Bundlefest.

From the selection, the classic Assassin's Creed games-touting 'build your own collection' special lets you pick three games for $9.99 or five games for $14.99. It features popular entries from the old generation such as the original Assassin's Creed, its sequel, Brotherhood, Revelations, Rogue, and Black Flag.

Another build your own bundle that is available now is the new Festival Bundle, and this one has games such as Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter, Tropico 5, Cat Quest, Sudden Strike 4, Clustertruck, and Cook, Serve, Delicious! 2!!. There are four tiers you can choose, going from $1 for one game, all the way to $9.79 for 20 games.

This free-fly event will last through February 25, and comes with six ships to use as you wish. Meanwhile on Steam, Team17 has kicked off a free weekend for Worms Rumble, the 32-player arena combat title based on the popular tactics franchise. This promotion will close its doors on Monday.
