Note: All prices are in USD
1) Mirrors Edge Catalyst (90% off/$1.99)
Released in 2016, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is a reboot of the original entry released in 2008 by Battlefield developer DICE.
A first-person parkour-focused game, it follows the adventures of protagonist Faith Connors, who is a Runner. Taking place in the open-world sci-fi city of Glass, ruled by corporations, Faith’s group aims to avoid mass surveillance by freerunning across rooftops and avoiding the law.
Players will engage in immersive parkour action as they hop across skyscrapers doing all sorts of acrobatics while contending with enemies in hand-to-hand and gun combat.
2) Injustice 2 (90% off/$4.99)
A surprise successor to the 2013 original, Injustice 2 once again pits fan-favorite DC characters against each other in brutal 2.5D fights.
Developed by NetherRealm Studios of Mortal Kombat fame, Injustice 2 improves upon the first game in many ways. A big visual step up aside, it features more characters, personalization options, and overall content for players to engage in.
As is the studio’s pedigree, Injustice 2 features a robust fighting system, replete with many combo opportunities and even a story mode for more casual players.
3) Battlefield V: Definitive Edition (90% off/$4.99)
Returning to its World War 2 roots, 2018’s Battlefield V expands upon the formula set up by 2016’s Battlefield 1.
The single-player mode follows an episodic format with varied missions enclosed within War Stories. These missions see players complete objectives and set pieces in unique settings and areas.
However, multiplayer is still the highlight of the game, with a learning curve that requires teamwork and skill. Large maps with action-packed skirmishes, both on-foot and vehicular, are bound to keep the blood pumping as competing teams strive to emerge victorious.
4) Soulcalibur VI (90% off/$5.99)
Bandai Namco’s underrated fighting game series saw its latest entry in 2018 with Soulcalibur 6.
The iconic arena fighter introduced the most polished 3D combat the series has ever seen with a fantastic character creation tool. New mechanics like Reversal Edge keep enemies on their toes by granting counter opportunities.
To top it all off, beloved guest characters spice up the roster. These include Geralt from CD Projekt RED’s Witcher series and 2B from PlatinumGames’ NieR Automata. The latter is available as a DLC on Steam in case players do not go for the Deluxe Edition.
5) XCOM 2 (90% off/$5.99)
Firaxis Games refined the turn-based strategy formula to a tee in 2016’s XCOM 2. As part of the resistance force aiming to topple over the aliens that now rule over Earth, players must assemble a team of talented members who will join the cause in liberating humanity.
Players will engage in varied missions while in a race against time as they must tactfully flush out and mow down challenging alien enemies. They can utilize the cover system and turn-based combat to think two steps ahead and ensure the least number of casualties.
