You better get these deals before the Extended Play Sale deals end Thursday!
Sony’s Extended Play sale has been running for a few weeks now. It offers a huge amount of discounts on a range of games, spanning many important third-party IP. As a result of this, it seems worthwhile to flag up some of the best deals you can grab on the sale’s tail-end before it wraps up on the 28. So, without further ado, here are four of the best bargains, available on PS4 right now.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided – Digital Deluxe Edition ($6.29/£4.89)
Frankly, this price is ridiculous. 2016’s sequel to the brilliant Deus Ex: Human Revolution expands on its predecessor in story, visuals, and fidelity, with results both enjoyable and appreciable. While it ends with some abruptness – clearly intended either as a longer game or the first part of a pair of sequels – this does not hold the title back from being an involving and thematically rich action-RPG. This package also includes the game’s DLC, which makes the price even more ludicrous. Take a look.
Just Cause 3: XXL Edition ($7.19/£5.99)
Just Cause 3 launched back in 2015 to middling reviews. The console experience for the game was frustrating due to performance issues, tanking framerate when overloaded with too much stimuli, and slowing the title down for extended periods of gameplay. Four years and a few patches later, the game handles much better on PS4. It isn’t perfect, nor smooth, but it is certainly playable. And what fun it is to play – the sequel improves on Just Cause 2 in so many aspects and offers some insanely slick aerial gameplay with the wingsuit as well as some great set pieces upon which to wreak havoc. The XXL package also includes the game’s three DLC releases, Sky Fortress being a particularly worthwhile addition to the core title. Pick it up for an entertaining, and oddly relaxing, open-world playground of destruction.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Complete Edition/Game of the Year Edition ($14.99/£12.99)
This seems obvious, but it’s such good value that it had to be included. Though not a new price for the title, it goes without saying that if you haven’t yet played Wild Hunt, now is the time. As not only one of the most critically acclaimed Western RPGs of the previous decade, but also persistent in its reputation (it goes on in the minds of players), CD Projekt Red’s 2015 open-worlder should be one to seek out. And with DLC included, this package is the perfect opportunity to dive in.
Batman: Arkham Collection ($17.99/£15.99)
Here’s something of a throwback. If you never played Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham Asylum and City back in 2009 and 2011 respectively or missed Arkham Knight on PS Plus in September, this could be a tantalizing package. While still there remains no love for the oft-forgotten Arkham Origins (developed instead by WB Games Montréal), this bundle includes what is widely considered the defining trilogy of modern Batman games. The price is good, and the games probably worth replaying. If that wasn’t enough to sway you, there are new trophy lists, too!
