If you’re a gamer, you know the hobby can be expensive. Between paying for consoles, new controllers, online subscriptions, and the games themselves, you can spend a pretty penny to keep up with your favorites. That’s where we come in: each week, we help you find the best deals on the coolest goodies from around the web.
This week, we’ve got deals on everything from Skyrim’s anniversary re-release to the beloved social simulator game Animal Crossing. Let’s dive into these deals!
If you’re a gamer and you haven’t played The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim yet, congratulations! You’re the last person on the planet who has managed to avoid playing Bethesda’s 2011 epic. The popular game is renowned for its sprawling open-world, immersive storytelling, and impressive amount of content.
The Anniversary Edition updates the game’s graphics and introduces a slew of new quests, allowing returning players and newcomers alike a chance to experience the best version of the game. If you’ve somehow managed to not purchase Skyrim (multiple times) yet, then you’re in luck. You can get the storied RPG on sale from Amazon today for just $30 for the Xbox Series X version.
Animal Crossing is a delightful, quiet game about an island full of cute animal villagers. Players take the role of the only human character in the village, and the game encourages you to make friends with your cuddly neighbors. You can go fishing, catch bugs, and decorate your home to pass the time.
Animal Crossing New Horizons, the latest entry in the long-running social series, is on sale today for only $40 at GameStop and Target. That’s $20 off the game’s MSRP, so hurry to grab it while this deal lasts. First-party Nintendo titles rarely go on sale, so don’t let this opportunity pass you by.
In the pulse-pounding first-person shooter Deathloop, you play as Colt, a man trapped on an island stuck in a time loop. The game is all about problem-solving: Colt needs to take out eight assassins in the same loop to break the curse and get off the island. Until he succeeds, he’ll keep living out the same day and experimenting with different approaches until he gets it right.
It’s not as simple as just taking the assassins out, either. A player-controlled antagonist, Juliana, can invade your game at any time to keep you from completing your goal! You can grab Deathloop from Amazon today for just $25 for either PS5 or PC.
