Weekend PC Game Deals: Enough bundles to last through the Winter

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 Black Friday madness is now behind us, bringing all stores back to their regular schedules, that is until the Winter sales begin later this month. Returning to its schedule with a blast is Humble Bundle, bringing some brand new early unlocks for its $12 Humble Monthly subscription program.

Signing up for the bundle this month will get you three early unlock games - Quantum Break, The Long Dark, and Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War 3. You will have to wait until January 5 to get the rest of the bundle's games, but that also means you have plenty of time to decide if this offer is worth your money.

This next bundle is a returning one from last year, where The Yogscast has once again partnered up with Humble Bundle to make a massive bundle that will reveal new games every day until December 25. If you opt to purchase the $35 bundle you are entitled to get all the previously unlocked games (that still have keys left) as well as all the upcoming ones.

Just as last year, all proceeds from the bundle go to charities that you select, and you can see what games have been revealed so far by going to the bundle's page here. At the time of writing, the bundle has Rust, Garry's Mod, Dungeon of the Endless, and Q.U.B.E Director's Cut unveiled.

Leaving behind the special bundles, the store also put forth a rather normal bundle this week, announcing the Humble Codemasters Racing Bundle. Albeit quite DLC heavy, the bundle will grant you 10 racing titles that are split across three tiers, with even more games slated to be added a few days from now.

Starting off, the $1 tier will net you copies of F1 Race Stars, F1 2011, F1 2012, and Toybox Turbos. While the games in this tier are not recent releases, it's a decent starter for the price.

Next, we have the 'pay more than the average' tier, which currently stands just above $8. It brings along Grid 2, F1 2014, F1 2015, F1 Race Stars + Season Pass, along with coupons and some DLC packs for DiRT 4 and F1 2017.

At last, we arrive at the $15 tier, which brings you Micro Machines World Series, F1 2016 + DLC, DiRT Rally, as well as DLC for Grid 2.

We now move over to the Fanatical store, which is offering a rather attractive DOOM bundle. The bundle only has two tiers, and while the first tier only offers one game, it is most definitely the highlight of the package.

By paying just $9.99 you will get id Software's fantastic DOOM reboot from last year, and thanks to Bethesda making all the DLC free earlier this year, this is the critically acclaimed game's complete package. Also, as far as we can tell, this is the lowest price that DOOM has been available for from a reputable seller since its launch.

Meanwhile, the $19.99 tier attaches two additional items to the offer, bringing Doom Classic Complete, a package containing the original Doom and Doom II, as well as Doom 3: BFG Edition.

Better hurry up if you're aching to stomp on demons, however, as the bundle will come to a close on December 4.

Free Events

If you're interested in having some multiplayer adventures in the lands of Tamriel, there is a great opportunity to do so right now. Celebrating The Elder Scrolls Online crossing the ten million player milestone, Bethesda has opened up the MMO for everyone to try out for a seven day period.

The free week will last until December 6, offering up The Elder Scrolls Online's entire base game on Steam as well as through the standalone client. Even though access to the Morrowind expansion is missing from the promotion, this is still quite a decent amount of content.


Next, we have an open beta for the upcoming Winter Olympics themed expansion for Ubisoft's extreme winter sports title, Steep. Beta participants get access to five challenges set across South Korea and Japan, as well as a free-roaming region.

You can join Road to the Olympics' open beta and test your skills against others via Ubisoft's Uplay client by going here. The beta will come to an end on December 4.

Big Deals

With the beginning of the weekend arrives a wide assortment of sales from a range of PC game stores, and below, we have a selection of handpicked games that are near or below their historical discount rates.

DRM-free Goodness

Now, with all those pesky DRM-filled games out of the way, let's have a look at some DRM-free deals that are on offer at the GOG store.

Do keep in mind that availability and pricing for some deals may vary depending on the region you're in.


And that is it for our pick of this weekend's PC game deals folks, and hopefully, some of you have enough self-restraint not to break the bank adding new games to your ever-growing backlogs. Of course, there is an enormous amount of other deals ready and waiting all over the interwebs if you comb through it hard enough, so keep your eyes open for those as well.
