There's no need to wait for bargains on this week's biggest games.

Each week, finder searches for the best game deals in Australia. This week, we've got a bunch of savings on some new releases, from Dawn of War III to Mario Kart 8.

Waaagh is here!

Strategy fans are in for a treat with the recent release of Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War III. We had a blast with the game, praising its refined design and disruptive hero units in our review. If you're looking to pick yourself up a copy, Mighty Ape is selling the physical version for $55 plus $4.99 delivery, which is significantly cheaper than the USD$68 it's going for on Steam.

Still preying

This week's your last chance to lock in your pre-order for the trippy-looking sci-fi shooter Prey before its 5 May release. If our hands-on trial of the first hour piqued your interest, JB Hi-Fi is undercutting the competition with the game going for just $59 on your platform of choice, whether it be PS4, Xbox One or PC.

If you're looking to go digital, ozgameshop will shoot you a Steam download key for the low price of $57.99.

Book your Indian adventure

It might still be a ways off, but Uncharted: Lost Legacy, the standalone single-player expansion for Uncharted 4, looks set to be just as exciting as we found the original game to be. If you want to secure your copy now ahead of its 23 August release, UK retailer Base is offering pre-orders for £27.54 delivered (approximately AUD$47.64), with a free digital code for Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy thrown in. Base doesn't charge until the game ships, so if the price drops between now and the release, you'll get it for the cheaper price.

Get your rock on

It's jamming time at EB Games, with the retailer clearing out the complete band kit for Rock Band 4 including the Rivals expansion pack. Available in-store only, the kit usually goes for $299, but you can grab it for just $97 if your local store has it in stock. Both the Xbox One and PS4 versions are on sale and, for even more rock, you can pick up two additional wireless Fender Jaguar guitars for $90, down from the usual $280.

Switchin' it up

If you're up for a trip to your local Target store, you could score yourself some top-notch savings this week. With the Wii U on its way out, poor old Fox McCloud and the Animal Crossing gang are being jettisoned for just $9 each to clear space for a ripper deal on Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. You'll need to hit the gas if you want to get your MK8 order in while stocks last and remember to choose Click & Collect to save yourself the $9 delivery fee.

Dog-watching deals

Hacking cars and flying drones in Watch Dogs 2's virtual San Francisco is as entertaining as it is disconcerting, given the state of modern technology. At Big W this week, you can experience the game's haunting depiction of the near future for $39 on both PS4 and Xbox One. But be warned: after seeing how vulnerable our high-tech society is, you'll never look at a computer the same way again.
