Weekend PC Game Deals: Jumbo Bundles, a Fanatical launch sale, 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.

With almost all the Halloween sales now behind us, It is time for stores to return to their regular routines. And speaking of routines, the Humble Monthly Bundle early unlock for November has now been revealed, this time bringing Daybreak's early access battle royale title, H1Z1.

While its true that PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is dominating the battle royale sector, H1Z1 is still holding onto a sizable player base, so finding matches won't be a problem.

As with all battle royale games, H1Z1 drops a large number of players - 150 in this case - onto a single map, with various loot and vehicles strewn around for gathering. Beyond that, the playable area in the map continues to grow smaller as the round progresses, making hostile player encounters a common affair. When all is said and done, the last player remaining in a round becomes the victor.

Subscribing to Humble Monthly will cost you $12, bringing H1Z1 and two in-game Trickster crates as early unlocks for this month. Keep in mind that even more games will be delivered to subscribers once the bundle comes to a close on December 1, and active subscribers can enjoy a 10% discount on all Humble Store purchases.

Humble Jumbo Bundles in the past have always offered great collections of games, and the newest one is no different. Hitting double digits on the counter, the Humble Jumbo Bundle 10 arrives with seven games for you to dig into.

Putting down a single dollar for this bundle gets you Grey Goo Definitive Edition, Epistory - Typing Chronicles, and Oddworld New 'n' Tasty. This tier offers an excellent selection of games for such a menial amount of money.

Meanwhile, if you're going for the 'Beat the Average' tier, that is currently just below $6, you will also get Prototype 2, Kingdom: New Lands, and How to Survive 2. Moreover, even more games are planned to be introduced to this tier on Tuesday.

Coming in with the final tier for $10 is the highly praised CRPG, Wasteland 2: Director's Cut, along with $2 worth of Humble Wallet credits for Humble Monthly subscribers. The addition of wallet credits may be becoming a common occurrence for Humble Bundles, as we saw the same thing with last week's Day of the Devs bundle.

If you haven't heard, Bundle Stars, the popular PC games and bundle store that loves to hold sales, changed its name and storefront to Fanatical on November 1. The change arrived soon after Bundle Stars celebrated its fifth anniversary, which as some of you may remember, was celebrated with a birthday sale.

Even though the name has changed, Fanatical is sticking to its roots by hosting a sale to celebrate its new name and appearance. The launch sale has hundreds of discounted games from various publishers to get your hands on, with new deals being added daily until November 14. Sadly, Ubisoft and Bandai Namco published games are not available in the U.S. and Canada, so keep an eye on the red region lock notice that appear on the game store pages.

Lastly, applying the code FANATICAL10 on purchases will get you another 10% off from the discounted price for even more savings. Keep in mind, however, that the code will not work with pre-purchases, bundles, or Star Deals. You can find highlights we have picked from this sale on the Big Deals section below.

Free Events

The first free event we will be looking at is a bit strange, as the developer will cancel the game altogether if not enough people play it during the event. The game on the chopping block is Decksplash by Bossa Studios of I Am Bread and Surgeon Simulator fame.

The skateboard tricks and map control mash-up multiplayer title will be entirely free-to-play on Steam until November 10. The goal is to gather a 100 thousand players within a week, which is not an easy target to hit by any means, but the game's future depends on it.

Next, we have a free weekend for Guardians of Ember, an isometric action-RPG that boasts of deep character customization, a hack and slash combat system, as well as PVE and PVP modes. The game will remain free to download and play via Steam until tomorrow.

Big Deals

With the beginning of the weekend arrives a wide assortment of sales from a bunch of PC game stores, and below, we have a selection of handpicked games that are near or below their historical discount rates. Be sure to apply the FANATICAL10 code when purchasing games from the new Fanatical store for that extra 10% discount.

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. A whole host of classic games from Interplay and Anuman Interactive are discounted this week on the GOG store, and you can find highlights from both publishers below.

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.
