Best Steam Deals Right Now: Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Ape Out, And More
Ubisoft games, excellent indies, and more get steep discounts on Steam this week.
With most people stuck at home right now, there's more time than ever to work through your backlog or try a game that's been on your Steam wishlist forever. Steam tends to offer a ton of deals on a regular basis, but this week's deals include a Ubisoft publisher sale with steep discounts on series like Assassin's Creed and Far Cry. In addition, there's no shortage of excellent indies and other games on sale this week, so we've rounded up the very best Steam deals on games you should check out.
The Ubisoft sale includes the entire Assassin's Creed franchise; notably, Assassin's Creed Odyssey is free to play this weekend and also discounted to $19.79 if you want to buy it and keep playing (we very much doubt you'll complete the entire game this weekend, but we'd be impressed if you did). You can also snag the Assassin's Creed bundle, which gets you Black Flag, Unity, Rogue, and Syndicate, for just $28.22; it usually sells for $100.
You'll also find a collection of Devolver Digital games on sale, including the bullet-hell dungeon-crawler Enter the Gungeon for $7.49 (50% off). This deal is perfectly timed alongside the release of its sequel, Exit the Gungeon, on Nintendo Switch today. Other notable deals include the gorgeous, emotional platformer Gris, which is down to $8.49, and the excellent beat 'em up Ape Out, which is discounted to $7.49.
One hidden gem in the sale is OneShot, one of my personal favorites on Steam. The surreal puzzle-adventure game is like Undertale meets Doki Doki Literature Club. It's best to go in without knowing much about it, but the basic premise is that you're guiding a child, Niko, through a mysterious world on a mission to restore its long-dead sun. OneShot is available for 40% off, just $6, in this week's sale.
There are plenty more deals to be had, so be sure to check out more of our picks below and see all the current deals at Steam. Plus, keep an eye out for the 2020 Spring Game Festival, which kicks off tomorrow, March 18, at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET, offering free-to-play demos, spotlighting new and upcoming games, and more.
