Deals: great games at a reduced price
In addition to these free games, we want to open the year with a small selection of offers that we have seen in the main stores and that we believe that, in our humble opinion, it can give you a lot of joy at the price they are.
- Borderlands 3 [PC]. On Steam the Winter Sale closed yesterday, but in the Valve trade there are always little opportunities to expand our collection. For example, it has caught our attention to be able to get Borderlands 3 at 85% discounts, and thus enjoy a shooter-looter full of chaos and hundreds of weapons. You can buy it for 8.99 euros on Steam until January 17.
- Civilization VI [PC]. What if with the New Year we consider conquering the world? This may be the video game to make your plan come true, the sixth installment of a historical saga where history is made through history. The proposal has many DLC, but the base video game, and at this price, already offers compelling reasons to enjoy many mornings, afternoons and nights. You can buy it for 5.99 euros on Steam until January 17.
- The Last of Us: Part 2 [PS4]. Only for Three Kings Day there are several important discounts in the PlayStation Store. We already collected several a few days agobut we want to remember that you can get The Last of Us: Part II for less than 10 euros, a great gift in time for the premiere of its television adaptation on HBO Max. You can buy it for 9.99 euros in the PS Store until January 7.
- Marvel’s Avengers [PS4]. Also available for Three Kings Day. Given the cast of characters she adapted, and the success Insomniac had with Spider-Man, audiences expected a lot more from Crystal Dynamic and her Avengers video game. It was not like that, but at the price it is now it is very difficult for us not to propose to give it a try. You can buy it for 9.99 euros in the PS Store until January 7.
- 11-11 Memories Retold [Xbox]. “A thrilling war story”, was the title of 3DJuegos’ analysis of this emotional narrative adventure that tells the story of two soldiers on different sides during the First World War.
