Weekend PC Game Deals: Steam Summer Sale 2021 edition

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.

Epic Games Store free games Sonic Mania and Horizon Chase Turbo

Before we get to all the summer sale goodness, let's quickly go through the freebies and game bundles available currently. Epic Games Store delivered another double dose of giveaways this week to replace the last duo, and in this round, you can grab Sonic Mania and Horizon Chase Turbo.

The side scrolling platformer experience that is Sonic Mania has both new zones and remade ones from past games, putting you into the shoes of Sonic, Tails and Knuckles for another adventure going against Dr. Robotnik. Next, classic car racing game fans may want to check out Horizon Chase Turbo, which offers a heavy arcade experience with four-player split screen support locally.

Both games are yours to claim until July 1, and as their replacement, Epic will be giving away Spectrum Retreat as the next freebie starting on the same date.

Up next is a bundle, but it is also related to Epic Games. This latest Humble offering has Omen of Sorrow plus its soundtrack for $1, followed by Dangerous Driving and A Knight's Quest in the average price tier. Lastly, putting down $15 gets you copies of World War Z GOTY Edition, RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures, and Spelldrifter. All these arrive as Epic Games Store activations.

Expect to see a slowdown of bundles in the next month or so while summer sales kick into high gear.
