Weekend PC Download Deals for Apr. 3: Xbox Studios Steam Sale

With a lot more time to spend at home, there’s probably no time like the present to jump into Halo, especially now that The Master Chief Collection is on PC. Have you not jumped into the Halo MCC yet? Good news! It’s getting its very first Steam sale this weekend. You can pick up the whole thing or grab games like Halo: Reach a la carte while saving a few precious bucks along the way. This is part of a bigger Xbox Studios sale, so if you want to save money on games like Gears 5 and Killer Instinct, now’s the time.

It’s time to build up more of that PC gaming backlog, thanks to the people at Epic Games. The Epic Games Store Spring Sale is underway and that means a vast majority of what’s on the storefront is on sale. That includes a lot of Epic exclusives, like Tetris Effect and Control. And don’t forget that the Epic exclusives also trickle down to some of the finer indie gems out there, like What the Golf? and Outer Wilds.

Elsewhere, Steam and the Humble Store are both celebrating the BAFTAs by offering a lot of their nominees for a noticeable discount. So if you need to catch up on games like Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Disco Elysium, now’s the time to do that. Plus, there’s a new crop of Humble Choice games along with the gigantic Humble Conquer COVID-19 Bundle that’s still available through the weekend. If that’s still not enough, if you waited for the reviews to pour in on Resident Evil 3, you’re probably good to pick it up now and it’s still on sale over at Green Man Gaming, GamersGate, and Fanatical, so go pick it up.

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

Ubisoft Store


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?
