Animal Crossing: New Horizons And Doom Eternal Discounted Ahead Of Release

New Horizons' discounted price is only available in stores.


Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Doom Eternal couldn't be more different, but they do share one exciting trait: their release date. New Horizons and Doom Eternal launch in about a week on March 20, and we imagine there are plenty of folks out there who plan on picking up both. For those interested in slaying demons and picking flowers on March 20, Walmart will be selling Switch exclusive New Horizons and Doom Eternal for PS4, Xbox One, and PC for $49.94 each.

Spotted by Wario64, the $10 discounts aren't all that surprising. For the past year, the retail giant has routinely offered first-party Switch games and multi-platform AAA hits for $50 at launch. You'll have to go to your local Walmart store to save $10 on Animal Crossing: New Horizons for Switch, as the offer is in stores only for now. Pre-ordering New Horizons online will still cost you the full $60.

The $10 discount probably gives Walmart the edge for most gamers looking to buy the Switch exclusive, especially since the most popular New Horizons pre-order bonuses have sold out. At this point, the only pre-order bonus left is at GameStop, which is offering two-sided Animal Crossing posters. The $10 you'll save shopping at your local Walmart is definitely a better deal.

Doom Eternal's discounted price is good both in stores and online for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. This is the best Doom Eternal pre-order offer available now, and it comes with the Rip and Tear Pack, which includes the Doot Revenant Skin, Throwback Shotgun Weapon Skin, and a bonus campaign level. You can find Doom Eternal for $49.94 at Amazon as well as Walmart. These come with free release-day shipping.
