Weekend PC Download Deals for August 6: Early bird discounts on the newest releases

If you've run out of games to play this summer, Steam and the other digital storefronts have already discounted some hot new releases.


As we are riding in the middle of the dog days of summer, you may find yourself finally clearing your backlog of game purchases and are looking for something new. Traditionally, you would need to wait a few months for a discount on a new release, but some of the biggest digital PC game retailers have some enticing introductory offers on a variety of the hottest new game releases of the last two weeks.

Even if you don’t need deals on the newest games, we got you covered. The folks over at Humble Bundle are running a sale on games published by Warner Brothers, so it’s the perfect time to fill the Hitman and Batman-shaped holes in your collection. If you don’t have any money to spend, Epic Games Store has a couple of bangers available free of charge. Any way you look at it, this could be the perfect weekend to score some new games.

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