Weekend PC Download Deals for Mar. 26: Epic Games Store Spring Sale

The Epic Games Store Spring Sale, including the first major discount on Hitman 3, is just the beginning for a massive weekend of PC gaming deals.

12

If you're looking for good PC games this weekend, you picked the right time to go shopping. Leading things off this weekend is the Epic Games Store. They're throwing their big Spring Sale and that includes a handful of Epic Games Store exclusives, including Hitman 3. In fact, this is Hitman 3's first big discount, so pick it up while you can.

Steam, along with Epic and the Humble Store, is celebrating the BAFTA Game Awards. They have discounts on some of the best games from the past few years, including price drops on past winners and nominees. That includes Half-Life: Alyx, which is celebrating its first birthday. On top of that, Valve's storefront is also having a sale on games that you experience with others, whether it be direct co-op or otherwise, with the Remote Play Together sale. If that's still not enough, the best of Square Enix is available, as well.

But maybe you don't like DRM. That's okay, because GOG.com is holding its massive Spring Sale. Games like Cyberpunk 2077, Divinity: Original Sin 2, and more are all available with no DRM attached. Pick up a game today and play freely!

Lastly, the Ubisoft Store's Spring Sale is still going. If you're on the fence about Watch Dogs: Legion, now's the time to try it out. There's a free weekend going down for the next few days!

Here's our selection of this weekend's PC deals:

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      Ooo, Twin Mirror is on sale, can somebody who uses EGS tell me is it easy to use, that is apparently the only place to buy it from and I am reluctant to have yet another login/password and launcher to deal with

                  All opinions my own. I played almost them all, except couldn't play more of Vampyr. It stank

                    Oh I forgot about that, never bought it. Different team than the others though I think

                      Vampyr was at least some of the Remember Me team, not the LiS team. I enjoyed it but it had some serious flaws like a narrative that starts falling apart towards the end and poorly designed dialogue sections where it’s just you and a very janky long-winded static talking head.

                      High notes were the exploration (very much like Remember Me, with lots of interesting, lived in details) and some really amazing voice acting from the main leads. The romance was definitely one of the better ones I’ve encountered in a game, which I usually hate, and playing a skill set that was all sucking blood and using vampire powers was fun and the only good choice for the combat.

                      Overall they needed a bigger budget and a production team who could rein in the massive Eurojank. Twin Mirror is probably better though!

                    I never played Vampyr. I heard it sucked arse and avoided it.

              Oh I have no doubts I will enjoy the game, it is EGS that I am concerned about. Is it fairly seamless or is it like GFWL where it is so frustrating I will refuse to buy anything from it again

                EGS is easy to use. It feels like the steam app from a couple years ago, they have some refinement and polish to work on but it ain't all that bad. I generally don't leave it running in the background because I feel it is a little more resource demanding than it should be, but that's my only major complaint.

                  Okay thanks, a new Dontnod is hard enough to pass up at $40 but impossible at $20 :(
