This week’s best game deals: Destinies, strange storms and American trucks
If you've got your eye on the latest new releases, we've got the deals for you.
Each week, finder searches for the best game deals in Australia. This week, PS4 players welcome back Knack, Xbox One owners seize control of their Destiny and PC gamers learn how to Prey.
"Mankind Divided" is a sadly relatable sentiment these days, so what better time to discover the dystopian future we're spiralling into? Nihilistic humour aside, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided remains a thrilling stealth-action game that you should definitely check out for the $16 it's going for at Ozgameshop this week.
|Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Day One Edition||PS4/Xbox One||$15.98 delivered|
|Halo 5: Guardians||Xbox One||$20.98 delivered|
Big W is the place to go this week if you're looking to check out the latest new releases. The retailer is offering some primo prices on games coming out this very week, including the co-op platformer Knack 2 and the much-anticipated sci-fi shooter Destiny 2.
|Lego Worlds||Nintendo Switch||$49.00|
|Destiny 2||PS4/Xbox One||$64.00|
Cats are cool, but you know what's even better? Cats that can control gravity. If my cats could flip the world upside-down and run across walls the way Dusty does in Gravity Rush 2, I'd have a blast cavorting with them around the house – although it'd probably make cleaning up after them an even bigger nightmare than it is now. Maybe I'll just stick with picking up Gravity Rush 2 from Mighty Ape since it's on sale for $49 this week.
|Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare||PS4||$24.99 delivered|
|Street Fighter V||PS4||$26.99 delivered|
|Gravity Rush 2||PS4||$48.99 delivered|
|Resident Evil 7: Biohazard||PS4||$48.99 delivered|
While Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are only a couple of months away, that's plenty of time to tour the islands of Alola and catch 'em all in the original Pokémon Moon, which you can snap up for less than $40 delivered this week from British retailer Base. Considering Pokémon X and Y are still going for full price despite coming out well before Sun and Moon, you probably won't find either Sun or Moon much cheaper than this for a long time.
|Batman: The Telltale Series||PS4||$18.99 delivered|
|Mafia III||PS4/Xbox One||$28.52 delivered|
|Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD||PS4||$28.68 delivered|
|Pokémon Moon||3DS||$39.90 delivered|
I don't think I could be a truck driver in real life – all those endless horizons and motel stay overs would drive me bonkers. Still, there's something soothing about truckin' it up in American Truck Simulator, hauling cargo across a miniaturised version of the American Southwest while listening to the best and worst of Internet radio. At less than $13 in this week's Humble Jumbo Bundle 9, along with other stellar titles like rafting survival game The Flame in the Flood and the gangly physics sandbox Human: Fall Flat, I recommend donning your trucker's cap, filling your thermos and settling in for a long drive.
Pay US$1.00 (AUD$1.26) or more
- The Flame in the Flood
- Infested Planet
- Human: Fall Flat
Beat the average (currently US$5.11/AUD$6.41)
- Samarost 3
- Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide
- More games to come
Pay more than US$10.00 (AUD$12.60)
- American Truck Simulator
If real life isn't horrific enough for you at the moment, why not dive into one of the creepiest games of the last few years? Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is PlayStation Store's deal of the week, and for $39.95, it's sure to provide you with plenty of nightmare fuel to mull over while you're lying in bed wondering whether the sound you just heard was a tree branch clawing your window or something worse.
Green Man Gaming
Not only is the excellent sci-fi adventure Prey on sale for the cheapest it's ever been at Green Man Gaming this week, the follow-up to one of my favourite games of all time is available at a sweet 15% discount. If you're even half as excited for Life is Strange: Before the Storm as I am, that's a hell of a good deal.
Prices converted from USD to AUD
|Life is Strange: Before the Storm||$21.32|
