Though the next Steam sale may be on the horizon, you don’t have to wait until February to snag some great game deals for PC. Fanatical, a store that sells licensed PC game keys, just kicked off its big January Savers sale, slashing up to 90% off PC games like Persona 5 Strikers, Rainbow Six Siege, and Civilization VI. The vast majority of the games on sale are for Steam, but be sure to note the launcher before buying–some are for other platforms like Uplay.
The sale notably includes discounts on Persona 5 Strikers, which releases February 23 if you opt for the standard edition. The base game is on sale for $49.19, down from $60. The Deluxe edition, however, releases February 19, so you’ll be able to dive in four days early if you pick that version up. On sale for $57.39 (down from $70), Persona 5 Strikers Deluxe edition gets you a digital art book, digital soundtrack, behind-the-scenes video, and a pair of in-game content packs, in addition to early access. (See our Persona 5 Strikers preorder guide for more details on each edition and other bonuses.) It’s worth noting each version is currently full price on Steam, so you’re better off taking advantage of Fanatical’s deals if you plan to play on that platform.
The sale includes a mix of newer games, such as Devil May Cry 5, Control: Ultimate Edition, and last year’s Resident Evil 3 remake, as well as older titles like Torchlight II and Civilization VI. This is a good opportunity to snag pricier editions of games for cheap on PC, like Frostpunk: Game of the Year edition for $26 (normally $55), Assassin’s Creed Odyssey: Ultimate edition for $26 (was $120), and Devil May Cry: Deluxe edition for $23 (discounted from $35).
Best Game Deals
In addition to straight-up discounts on games, Fanatical always throws in some interesting bundles that can offer really fantastic deals if you are into the games they include. There are several build-your-own-bundle offers, including a Fanatical Favorites bundle that lets you pick five games for $15, with options like Metro 2033 Redux, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, and Sleeping Dogs. Also worth a look is the Platinum Collection, which lets you select up to seven games for $20 and includes Everspace, Thief, Saints Row: The Third – The Full Package, and more. A lot of these games go for more than the bundle price on their own on Steam.
If you’re the gambling type, there’s a new Mystery Bundle up at Fanatical as well, and this time, you can choose up to 10 mystery Steam keys for just seven bucks. These generally provide a mix of older AAA titles and indie games, and the keys will be available for you to redeem right away.
