Noire and pre-orders for Red Dead Redemption 2, but those aren’t on PC yet anyway.
Amazon currently offers Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus at a bargain price of $29.99, if you’re still into buying PC games on disc. (It still activates on Steam, of course.) You can also pick up The Evil Within 2 for $24.99, and Overwatch GOTY Edition for $29.99.

GOG’s tremendous selection of classic titles is perhaps the widest available for you retro enthusiasts, and most of their catalog is down to bargain prices throughout the week. There’s far too much on sale to narrow it down, but bear in mind that discounts will also apply to many modern titles like Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Don’t forget that you’ve still got time to redeem a free copy of MDK, too.
The Humble Store has had a rotating selection of publisher deals all week, ranging from the stylish indies of Devolver and Adult Swim all the way up to Rockstar blockbusters.
