Weekend PC game deals: Prize winners, Xbox hits, choice packs, and more

Weekend PC game deals is where the best game deals from all over the internet are brought together in one place, every week, for your consumption. So kick back, relax and keep your wallets.

Lot of Humble Choices

Humble Choice is back with its April merchandise, giving you a chance to grab eight more games as part of the subscription. Although the promotion is still called Choice, keep in mind that you now get all the games in the selection for one price.

This month you receive copies of Ghostrunner, Destroy All Humans!, Monster Sanctuary, Killsquad
Rogue Heroes, Overlord, Chicken Police – Paint it RED,
and Naruto to Baruto: Shinobi Striker. Each title arrives in the form of a Steam key.

You will need to deposit $11.99 for the package with all eight games. Subscribers also get access to Humble Games’ collection of DRM-free titles (from a separate launcher), as well as a slowly deepening Humble Store discount. Additionally, 5% of the cost of membership is donated to charity.

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter and Rogue Legacy free on Epic promo

Epic Games Store is building a double streak of freebies again, and this week you can grab copies of The disappearance of Ethan Carter and The Legacy of Thieves.

The first game, The disappearance of Ethan Carter, puts you in the role of a detective who can communicate with the dead as he searches for the whereabouts of Ethan and the Carter family, Rogue Legacy, meanwhile, comes as a rogue-platforming experience lite with procedurally generated castles to dive by. The hook is the new and unique characters that you can cast each time you perish.

Both games will be free for you until April 14. It’s also another double giveaway next week, and it’s a big one, with XCOM 2 and Insurmountable join as gifts.

Humble and Industrious Sims Pack

Now it’s back to Humble to check out its latest regular game pack. Management simulations are the latest version of the bundle offered, with eight games divided into two levels.

Starting with the $5 tier of the Industrious Sims Pack, this gives you copies of accident, gravel, and Construction simulator 2015 deluxe edition.

Upgrading to the full bundle level will cost you $13, and will also add the games Farming Simulator 17 Platinum Edition, SimCasino, SimAirpot, Key, and child finders plus its ‘Amerykan Dream’ DLC. There are about two weeks left until this bundle hits the store.
