Weekend PC Game Deals: Halloween specials, bundles, and freebies begin pouring in

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.

Just as expected, Humble showed up this week carrying a Halloween-themed bundle, which will be available for the next 10 days or so. The Thrills and Chills Bundle offers up 10 games in its three tiers, and starting things off with the $1 first tier are copies of Pacify and DISTRAINT 2.

Paying over the average cost of the bundle, currently hovering around $9.50, gets you five more games, Detention, DESOLATE, Blood: Fresh Supply, DARQ, and The Letter - Horror Visual Novel.

The final tier comes in at $15, and gets you DUSK, The Blackout Club, and Layers of Fear 2. However, note that Layers of Fear 2 is currently free on the Epic Store, as you'll see below, so it probably shouldn't factor into your decision on bumping up to the third tier.

To nobody's surprise, the latest games to enter Epic Games Store's weekly giveaway are also Halloween-themed, with Layers of Fear 2 and Costume Quest 2 now being available for free. If you've kept up with previous Epic giveaways, you should have the original games of these sequels in your library too.

Layers of Fear 2 is a first-person psychological horror title developed by Bloober Team. The exploration and narrative-focused title puts players into the shoes of a disturbed actor stuck on an ocean liner. Pulling back on the horror scale but still keeping the Halloween spirit, Costume Quest 2 arrives from Double Fine. The RPG follows a group of kids trying to stop Dr. Orel White from destroying Halloween and bringing forth a dental dystopia.

You have until October 29 to claim the duo, which is when Epic will bring in Blair Witch and Ghost Busters: The Video Game Remaster as the next giveaways.

Free Events

Those looking to try out some new experiences this weekend have four free events from varying genres waiting for them.

Moreover, the space-set sandbox building and survival title, Space Engineers, as well as the latest entry in the long-running Formula One racing series, F1 2020, can be played this weekend for free as well.

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 to not add even more games to your growing backlogs this Halloween season. Of course, there is an enormous amount of more deals ready and waiting all over the internet if you comb through it hard enough, so keep your eyes open for those, and have a wonderful weekend.
