2K Games, Bethesda, Ubisoft Release New Game Bundles

By - Source: Bethesda | B 10 comments

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.

    I won't call that cheap in the sense of sale, considering that in steam sales, you can get Dishonored for as low as $7.5 and BL2 for as low as $7.5 too.

    How about an article about the alternatives and their current legalities? Like buying a used game disk + its online key and then applying an offline crack to have a secure backup with no idiotic social messaging/leaderboards or worthless DLC that wasn't good enough to make a real expansion pack? Or borrowing a game & its user-account from a friend for a single run-through, considering the low replay value of the interactive movies that pass for games these days?

    Tom's: You can really do away with the *.99 pricing now. So instead of saying $19.99, just say "about $20" and we'll get it.

    It is definitely gotten to the point I will never buy a new game on release. Wait 6-12 months you will get the same game for at least half off. I started this "wait and pay less" approach 2 years ago, and it sucked then since I was stuck with crappy, cheapy Steam games. Now however this approach is working like a charm since I have a good rotation going of games I buy in the cheap bundles, play those for 6 months, and a new one becomes available. If you can wait and get into this cycle do it - it will save you hundreds (thousands over years).

    God bless steam sales! I have 130 game on steam and the average I have paid is less than $10 each, most were $50+ at release. I all I have to do is wait like Bondfc11 said. I feel sad for the console guys...

    DLC not included? Not much of a bargain, then.
