Weekend PC Download Deals for Oct. 6: Elden Ring under $40

The biggest hit of 2022 is at one of its lowest prices to date.


While new games are going to be coming in rapidly throughout the month of October, Bandai Namco would like you to remember the biggest hit of last year. Elden Ring doesn't go on sale very often, so when it falls to under $40, that's a pretty big deal. You'll find it just a hair under that price on Steam, but be sure to shop around at places like Green Man Gaming, GamesPlanet, and Fanatical, because you might even find it somewhere in the neighborhood of $35.

Elsewhere, Cocoon remains marked down for its launch window, but that window is rapidly closing. The Epic Games Store has the best from Private Division, including the early access build for Kerbal Space Program 2. The Ubisoft Autumn Sale continues for another week. Lastly, take a moment to revisit Psychonauts 2, which is on sale over at GOG.com.

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?
