The weekend has arrived! And with it, there are some epic games on sale, but instead of listing everything available (which can be quite overwhelming), we’ve hand-picked the very best games on sale that we love and that you should take a shot at.
Far Cry 3 – R66.15 on Steam (PC)
While the sequel, Far Cry 4, and the more recent spin-off, Far Cry: Primal, are the newer titles available, Far Cry 3 has a soft spot in our hearts, thanks to its compelling setting, tropical locale, fantastic villain, and memorable missions. Far Cry 3 is on special from Steam for R66.15. If you haven’t played it, it’s a no-brainer.
Horizon: Zero Dawn – R799 (Makro)
Yeah, Horizon: Zero Dawn has just launched this week, but the exciting new PS4 exclusive has already been slapped with a special price of R799 from Makro this weekend. We’ve been playing it (read our full review here) and to say it’s a must-play is an understatement. Check out the special here.
Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration – R459 (Playstation Network)
Following the initial release on Xbox One, Lara Croft’s most recent adventure made its much-demanded debut on the PS4, albeit with some enhanced features and new additions. The base game itself is spectacular, expanding on the stellar 2013 reboot, which takes some pages out of Uncharted‘s book, and to good effect. The influence of crafting and survival has taken the experience to new heights, and the ever-evolving story of a young and ambitious Lara Croft is impossible to not be caught up in. The game is on special on the Playstation Network for R459 – a steal given it only came out in October last year. Check out the special here.
Dishonored 2 (Loot)
The first Dishonored opened the world of supernatural assassinations to gamers and the sequel takes the Dishonored world to new heights. Players are able to choose between playing as Corvo or his daughter Emily in this slick-looking follow-up which takes place in the coastal city of Karnaca rather than the grimy streets of Dunwall. Players can also use a variety of new supernatural powers to hunt down their targets, but it’s also said that the game can be finished without taking a life. Dishonored 2 is on special on PS4 and Xbox One from Loot.
Hitman: Absolution (PS3) – R199
While the new Hitman: The Complete Season has just launched, the previous game, Hitman: Absolution is a great title in its own right. It’s on special from Raru for R199.
Splinter Cell: Conviction (Xbox 360) – R199
Splinter Cell: Conviction has to be one of the best in the series – a stripped-down version of everyone’s favourite goggled-spy, Sam Fisher. A brilliant title that’s on special on Xbox 360 from Raru for R199.
Dying Light – R389 (Takealot)
So, should you’re asking yourself: ‘should I buy Dying Light?’. The answer is another question: do you enjoy Rambo movies? George Romero-esque zombie flicks? The idea of drop kicking zombies into spikes? If the answer to these questions is ‘yes’, then you’ll be glad to know it’s on special on Xbox One and PS4 from Takealot.
