Weekend PC Download Deals for 1/5: Shadow of War Expansion Pass Deal and More

With the holidays over, most retailers are recovering from the madness. But there are a couple of deals to be found.


The smoke from the holidays has dissipated and everything looks to be back to normal. That includes Steam, which has concluded its annual Winter Sale.

There are a few deals to be found this week. The most noteworthy thing comes from Green Man Gaming, which is offering select DLC packs. The Middle-Earth: Shadow of War Expansion Pass is a rarely discounted item, so maybe give that a look. Also, Origin is still offering a few leftovers from the holidays. Other than that, look for more stuff next week once the holiday hangover has worn off.
