This week’s game deals: Deluxe editions at bargain prices
The premium way to play at a fraction of the cost.
We're not proud to admit that our PlayStation 4s and Xbox Ones have been heavily neglected since the release of the Nintendo Switch and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. However, now that we've spent an unhealthy amount of quality time with our Switch, we're open to the idea of dividing up our time a little more equally amongst all three consoles.
What better time to jump back into the game than when some of last year's best games are scoring some unbelievable discounts on their deluxe editions.
With all that's going on, we're also going to be setting time aside for some hot co-op action with Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands.
PlayStation 4: Rise of the Tomb Raider Deluxe Edition
$47 off at PlayStation Store
PlayStation has a real treat in store this week. The deluxe edition of Rise of the Tomb Raider is currently on sale for 55% off. That's $37.95 down from $84.95.
PlayStation's version of the latest Tomb Raider title is hands down the definitive edition. The deluxe edition includes the game we know and love, plus a whole roster of extras including single and multiplayer DLC, a new difficulty, five classic skins and PlayStation VR support for the DLC Blood Ties. Better yet, it's all PS4 Pro enhanced, meaning you can appreciate it in all its ultra high fidelity glory.

Xbox One: Battlefield 1 Deluxe Edition and Titanfall 2 Deluxe Edition
$130.95 off at Microsoft Store
Both Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2 come from series that have a huge focus on competitive multiplayer, but it's their single-player stories that had us reeling in awe last year.
Battlefield 1 did what no first-person shooter could muster before it and treated the soldiers and families who suffered through The Great War with a modicum of respect. This resulted in a series of short "war stories" that viewed the horrors of war from a variety of perspectives.
Titanfall 2 is an obviously less-grounded first-person shooter that tasks the player with piloting a huge mech. While this free-running first-person shooter (FPS) was not short of its jaw-dropping action set pieces, what we really appreciated was the touching relationship between the pilot and BT.
Currently, Microsoft is doing FPS fans a solid and bundling Titanfall 2 and Battlefield 1's Deluxe Editions together for just $64.50. That's 66% off the original asking price of $195.45.
PC: Ghost Recon: Wildlands
15% off at Green Man Gaming
Do you and your bros want to burn around South America in a minivan, peppering the picturesque landscape with bullets? Well, Team America: The Video Game aka Ghost Recon: Wildlands releases this week and will encourage you to do just that.
You and three friends can buddy up in an online co-op to take down the Santa Blanca drug cartel before they spread into Bolivia.
Wildlands takes a bit of Metal Gear Solid V's open-world warfare and blends it with Ghost Recon's team-based tactics.
This week, Green Man Gaming is offering Ghost Recon: Wildlands for 15% off at $67.24. Not a bad deal for a game that hasn't been released yet.
