While the deals this week resemble a barren wasteland, there’s something to be said about the survival dinosaur adventure of ARK: Survival Evolved and the EA and 2K sports games respectively.
The primitive survival game ARK: Survival Evolved takes center stage as it’s only $29.99 for PlayStation Plus members at a 50 percent discount with its’ season pass discounted from $44.99 to $29.24 including 3 expansion packs and a future expansion pack being released this year. The game also features some dinosaur skins at a dollar a piece. The Explorer’s Edition of ARK: Survival Evolved is also half off at $49.99 which comes with all previously stated content.
If you’ve ever dreamed of stepping into the octagon, on the ice or on the basketball court, the deals this week have you covered as well.
UFC 3 kicks off the sports venture as it’s 35 percent off at $38.99. UFC 3 takes you to the octagon with its’ new G.O.A.T. mode as it expands the game’s career mode as you can create your own fighter or take an in-game fighter and rewrite their career. The mode also includes the abilities to train in different gyms that hone different abilities as well as hype your fights to garner more attention. NBA 2K18 takes you to the digital court and lets you pull off moves like Steph Curry for 50 percent off at $29.99. With an expansive My Career mode and franchise mode, NBA 2K18 has lots to offer. To conclude, hitting the ice in NHL 18 only sets you back $26. 39 and $32.99 respectively for the Young Stars Edition and the Young Stars Deluxe Edition respectively which both come with loaded content for the game’s Hockey Ultimate Team game mode.
The steals of the week though belongs to a game requiring honor, teammates, humor and a good internet connection. For Honor is a game placing you as a honorable knight, a deadly samurai or a Viking as you explore an innovative multiplayer game that includes 1v1, 2v2 and 4v4 game modes that bring your friends in the action and give you a good story mode along with excellent multiplayer. For Honor is also considered a steal at 67 percent off thus only costing $19.79 for the base game, the deluxe edition at $25.19 and the gold edition at $39.99. These are savings for those who are interested but haven’t tried the game should jump on while they’re still available.
The other steal of the week goes to Borderlands: The Handsome Collection. This gives you two jam-packed games with every piece of DLC content and a richly-content-based game for only $19.79. The collection includes Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre Sequel which tells the story of how Handsome Jack became the malevolent but charismatic Handsome Jack we see in Borderlands 2.
Other deals that don’t make the cut but I consider the best of the rest include Rocket League and Rocket League GOTY Edition, DOOM (2016), The Last Guardian, Need For Speed Payback, and Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands.
This week’s deals weren’t much, but like a barren wasteland, there’s little to be found but what you do find is of quality. Catch these deals while they’re available through March 27 at 10 A.M.
