Today is the last day of the Steam Autumn Sales, and if the announcement eluded you like a handful of blustery, crunchy leaves, then never fear: we've rounded up the best deals right here.
Really, there are some excellent savings to be had, with all-time lows for a number of top-tier titles. Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, The Evil Within 2, and Sunset Overdrive are less than £5 individually, and Gears 5 is 75% off, slashing its price tag to £8.74. Additionally, Ni No Kuni II is a massive 84% off, which is a cracking deal for an acclaimed game with around 50 hours of content to enjoy.
Scrolling ever onwards, Steam is offering bundles for certain franchises, developers or publishers which will save you even more moolah if you've already got one of the games in the collection. Mafia: Definitive Edition is 25% off, as well as the Mafia Trilogy bundle, which gets you the definitive editions of all three games in one tidy package. The Raccoon City Edition bundle for Resident Evil does what it says on the tin: Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 for less than £30, which is irresistible if you've not got the set yet. In a similar fashion, there is the DOOM Franchise bundle and the Quakecon 2020 bundle, offering tempting discounts on the entire DOOM series and a number of Bethesda titles respectively.
If ripping and tearing through hordes of the undead isn't quite your speed, then the Age of Empires Definitive Collection bundle is appealing, offering a saving of more than 60% on the three games. Alternatively, there are a scattering of indie gems here and there, like A Plague Tale: Innocence, GreedFall, and Slime Rancher. As the developer of Disney games like Ratatouille and Up, A Plague Tale: Innocence is the very definition of a volte-face from Asobo Studio. However, its narrative is heart-wrenching yet hopeful, and the desolation of the plague-stricken French countryside is mesmeric. I definitely recommend it if you like approachable, story-driven experiences with some puzzles and stealth.
GreedFall will scratch the itch for those who are still waiting for something, anything on the development of Dragon Age 4, as it boasts similar companion systems, brutal yet bright fantasy world, and determinant questlines. And, Slime Rancher is just jolly. A jolly farming simulator set on an alien planet, with three different modes depending on how you want to play. That's all a game has to be sometimes.
Last but by no means least, there are a lot of The Game Awards 2020 nominees to be snapped up in the sales. Half-Life: Alyx, which is tipped for four awards including best action and best VR/AR, is 25% off. Ori and the Will of the Wisps is half-off, cutting its price tag to £12.49, which is an utter steal in our eyes. Ewan called it "a bold, beautiful, emotionally stirring piece of work" with "some of the best platforming action I've experienced in some time," and predicted that it would resonate with many people. And finally, best family and best multiplayer nominee Fall Guys is 20% off, just in time for the debut of its third season.
