Here's a good way to get great games cheap.
2K Games and Bethesda Softworks have teamed up to provide gamers with two separate bundles, each costing $29.99, making these games quite a bargain. One is a Borderlands 2 and Dishonored bundle, and the other is an Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and BioShock Infinite bundle.
So how much are the savings? According to Steam, Skyrim by itself retails for $29.99, and that's without the DLC. BioShock Infinite also currently retails for $29.99 on Steam, making the new bundle a real steal.
As for the other bundle, Borderlands 2 currently costs $19.99 on Steam while Dishonored isn't quite as cheap, costing $29.99 on Steam. The Borderlands 2 price is surprising given how popular it has become since it was released back in September 2012.
"Not only have these games been critical successes, but they have also won the hearts of gamers everywhere," said Vlatko Andonov, President, Bethesda Softworks. "Each of these games has an extraordinarily passionate fan base and we look forward to seeing those grow even larger as more people get to explore these fully-realized worlds."
Now here's an interesting goodie for PlayStation 3 gamers: The Skyrim/BioShock Infinite bundle comes packed with the original BioShock game. Outside of that, the bundles only come with the original game: downloadable content can be purchased separately.
The two new bundles are available now for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC.
In related news, Ubisoft has released Far Cry Classic for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 for $9.99 USD. Ubisoft also launched the Far Cry Compilation for the PlayStation 3. This bundle includes Far Cry 2, Far Cry 3 and Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon for $39.99 USD. Between the two releases, PlayStation 3 games will have the entire Far Cry saga.
Ubisoft also revealed on Tuesday that Guild of Rogues for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is now available to purchase and download. The multiplayer add-on pack is made available in the Season Pass, or can be purchased for $2.99. Three new characters join the hunt in Guild of Rogues, each bringing their unique set of skills to battle for the title of deadliest Assassin.
Two new free maps will also be made available to download on February 17: Kingston and Charlestown.
