As the holidays slowly start to come to an end, so too do the holiday sales. So this is your last chance to catch some truly amazing gaming deals and bag yourself a couple bargains. If you haven’t already taken part in our recent Up For Debate on what gaming bargains and gems have people discovered in the holiday sales, then here’s a quick list of some of the best games and deals I could find that end soon.
All of these deals take place across different store platforms and I chose the best deals based on price for them. That means that whilst some stores will have the same price as each other, some other stores will offer a special discount/promo code for even better deals. So if you’re not a particular fan of a specific digital store, then chances are you’ll find the same price on another store of choice.
For instance, a lot of games mentioned for the Epic Games Store are also available on Steam, but EGS also offers an unlimited amount of $10 coupons that are redeemable on games priced $14.99 or higher, which means oftentimes the deal is much more worth it on the Epic Games Store than Steam.
Even though we already asked you shortly into the Holidays what deals and gems you found yourselves, we’d obviously love to hear them again if you found something else worth purchasing since then, or if a game really does deserve to be mentioned again.
Now on with the deals!...
Best Winter gaming deals and discounts
Before we dive right into the deals, I want to take this moment to list out some of the best deals per storefront as some of them offer exclusive promo odes/coupons for using their own store.
First of all, we already mentioned the Epic Games Store which is offering unlimited $10 coupons on purchases over $14.99, which is quite the steal for a lot of games.
Next and last, we have the Ubisoft Store which is running in parallel with the Epic Games Store. Since both stores have an agreement with each other, it looks like Ubisoft is trying to do their own Winter discount with a special 21% discount code on top of the already discounted games by using the promo code WELCOME2021.
This means you can get AC Valhalla, Game Debate's Game of the Year according to your votes, for even less than $49.79, which is already discounted by 17%. Obviously it's your choice what storefront you want to buy from, but I recommend using Ubisoft if you're planning to get any of the Gold/Special/Ultimate Editions as the promo code discount will end up better on there than the EGS coupon.
