Weekend PC Download Deals for Aug. 26: Epic August Event Sale

Two major sales are kicking off this weekend: One from the Epic Games Store and another from GOG.com.


Gamescom is happening right now and the Epic Games Store is looking to take advantage with a massive sale. Rather than choose between naming their sale after Gamescom or PAX West, Epic is simply opting for the more generic "August Event Sale" label. It may be generic, but there's no arguing with discounts on top-level games like Evil Dead: The Game, Sonic Origins, Destiny 2: The Witch Queen, Solar Ash, Ghostwire: Tokyo, and many more.

There's another late summer sale kicking off this weekend and it's from the folks at GOG.com. The people at GOG.com are putting over 3,500 games on sale in the GOG Su– no, I'm being told it's simply called the GOG Sale. That's it, just a general GOG Sale. It may not have a flashy name, but it does have a lot of flashy deals on games like Disco Elysium, Ruined King: A League of Legends Story, and No Man's Sky, as well as GOG.com debuts like LEGO DC Super-Villains and Mortal Kombat Trilogy.

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

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. 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?
