Doom Eternal was only released a few months ago in March, which makes this 50% discount even sweeter. Eternal is a continuation of the 2016 Doom restart, where the series is likely to be gnarlier than ever. There is a decent platform in Eternal, but the main thing is to destroy demons. You can get this stress relief at half price until July 9th.
The discount on Rockstar’s latest blockbuster isn’t as high as other games on this list, but it rarely happens that games of the caliber Red Dead Redemption 2 are discounted online at all. Take the 20% discount as long as you can.
Here is another new AAA game on the list. Half-Life: Alyx is a VR game that takes place between the first and second Half-Life title. Not only is it the best reason to own VR hardware, it’s a fantastic game in itself.
Outer Wilds is an adventure / puzzle game about discovery. You are on a distant planet, 22 minutes before the Sun Supernovae and destroys everything. Fortunately, you are in a time loop.
