Weekend PC Game Deals: It's raining franchise sales

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 Early Access Bundle promo

The bundle space expanded this week with Humble's Early Access All-Stars Bundle. As evident by the name, this collection focuses on still in-development games, offering a variety of experiences from the indie side.

The three tier bundle begins with a copy of Retrowave for $1. Going up to the average price tier will currently set you back around $10, and it gets you copies of Golf It and The Infected. Lastly, joining the final tier for $12 adds on the Snowtopia: Ski Resort Tycoon, Warpips, and Luck be a Landlord.

Humble's bundles don't stop there, as there is also an RPG Heroes collection available that offers a copy of Delver for $1, followed by Swords & Souls: Neverseen and Tower of Time in the average price tier, which is currently around 8.70. The final $10 tier has Quest Hunter, Slasher's Keep, and Dreadlands being added to the whole package.

Both bundles will last for about two weeks. Keep in mind this is also the final week of the July Choice selection, with the games, which include Yakuza 3 and Surge 2, refreshing on Tuesday.

Mothergunship and Train Sim World 2 giveaways on Epic

Now 200 freebies in, Epic Games is showing no signs of stopping its giveaways. This week, it has brought copies of Mothergunship and Train Sim World 2 for claiming.

Mothergunship is a bullet-hell FPS touting an intricate gun customization system with nutty combinations, massive boss battles, and cooperative play. On the other side of the platform is Train Sim World 2, offering authentic locomotives and routes to experience while tackling problems such as rush hours and harsh cargo schedules.

This double giveaway is slated to last until August 5, and it's a big week coming up, with A Plague Tale: Innocence and Speed Brawl arriving as the next freebies.
