There’s a surprise sale going on this weekend that extends to the PlayStation, Xbox, and PC (via Steam) platforms, and if you’ve got a Tomb Raider game or a Marvel title you’ve been hesitating to pick up, maybe you can buy that and a few more at exceptionally low prices. The sale includes these franchises as well as numerous others such as the Deus Ex games and includes titles such as Marvel’s Avengers, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxyand Shadow of the Tomb Raider as well as the more expensive versions of the games.
Square Enix, for those who may have missed the news, recently sold its Western Studios, which include Crystal Dynamics, Eidos-Montreal, and Square Enix Montreal. Embracer Group acquired them as well as the games they were working on, including the live service Marvel’s Avengers game that continues to get new content. Now that the acquisition has been completed, Square Enix appears to be aiming to pay off its remaining stock of games like those in the Marvel and Tomb Raider series.
As such, those games are very cheap right now. Like, less than $1 cheap. Classic Tomb Raider games like Tomb Raider: Underworld and Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness now go for less than a dollar, which admittedly isn’t what people are looking for, but you can even get the Tomb Raider Collection on Steam for the price of $20.20, while the regular price for that is $201.99.
The same types of deals can also be found when checking out the Marvel games. Unfortunately for those who don’t have the game yet, it seems that all copies of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy have already been picked up and see how no matter which platform or edition of the game you choose, the only option is to be put on a waiting list. Marvel’s Avengers is still in stock, depending on the platform and edition you’re looking for, and if you’re a collector who may not care much about the game, but the collectibles that come with the Earth’s Mightiest Edition, which is also for sale. It normally costs $149.99 and retails for $15.
As others have discovered, some of these purchases are for physical editions of the games, meaning Square Enix may be able to get you on the shipping costs, even if the initial prices are exceptionally low. That’s probably why pretty much all Steam purchases have since been wiped out, but those looking for a deal can still browse the games via the links above to see what’s left.
