There’s a surprise sale this weekend that spans PlayStation, Xbox, and PC (via Steam) platforms, and if you’ve got a Tomb Raider game or Marvel title you’ve been on the fence about picking up, you might be able to acquire that and some more at exceptionally low prices. The sale spans both franchises, as well as many others such as the Deus Ex games, and includes titles such as Marvel Avengers, Marvel Guardians of the GalaxyY Shadow of the Tomb Raider as well as the more expensive versions of the games.
Square Enix, for those who missed the news, recently sold its Western Studios, including 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 avengers game that is still getting new content. Now that the acquisition is complete, Square Enix appears to be looking to offload its remaining stock of games like those in the Marvel and Tomb Raider series.
As such, those games are really cheap right now. Like, less than $1 cheap. Classic Tomb Raider games like tomb raider underworld Y Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness are going for under a dollar right now which is certainly not what people are looking for but you can even get the Tomb Raider Collection on Steam at the price of $20.20 while the regular price is $201.99.
The same types of deals can also be found when looking at Marvel games. Unfortunately for those who don’t already own the game, it appears that all copies of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy have already been picked up seeing how no matter what platform or edition of the game you choose, the only option is to put yourself on a waiting list. Marvel’s Avengers is still available depending on what platform and edition you’re looking for, and if you’re a collector who might not be that into the game but like the collectibles that come with it Earth’s Mightiest Edition, that one is also on sale. It normally costs $149.99 and is on sale for $15.
As others have discovered, some of these purchases are for physical editions of the games, which means that Square Enix could cover the shipping costs, even if the starting prices are exceptionally low. That’s most likely why almost all Steam purchases have already been removed, but those looking for a deal can still browse through the games via the links above to see what’s left.
