One Of The Best PC Game Sales Of The Year Is Live Now

The massive Fanatical May Madness Sale discounts thousands of PC games, many of which are down to their lowest prices yet.


Fanatical never has a shortage of game deals, but its May Madness promotion is always one of its biggest and best offerings. It features a massive collection of discounted games, including recent releases and plenty of big-game games that you may have missed out on previously. Most of the thousands of games that are on sale come as Steam keys, though there are some titles, such as Ubisoft games, that utilize different DRM.

As an added bonus, spending $12 or more will earn you a spin on the Fanatical Wheel, earning you a coupon that can be redeemed on your next order or even a free game. There'll be flash deals every day, so don't forget to check in every 24 hours to see which games are on special.

Some of the highlights of this event include Mortal Kombat 11: Ultimate, a gloriously gory entry in the brutal fighting game series. It has a terrific story, fatalities that'll make you hurl and you can play as some of Hollywood's greatest legends. Ever stayed up at night wondering if Rambo could carve up Sub-Zero in a one-on-one fight? Well, wonder no more.

For horror fans, don't miss out on the recent remakes of Resident Evil 2 and 3. Resident Evil 2 is the gem of the bunch, while Resident Evil 3 is a shorter and more action-orientated return to Racoon City. Both games look fantastic, feature updated gameplay, and are very replayable. Plus, they are playable on Steam Deck.

The Batman: Arkham Collection is another solid buy, bundling up the best versions of the games in Rocksteady's legendary dark knight trilogy. Each one of these titles is the GOTY edition, and Batman: Arkham Knight is worth the price of admission alone as it includes an absurd amount of content through its season pass.

In the mood for some anime action? Check out Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, which puts a fun spin on Goku's adventures. It has eye-popping visuals, a fun grind as you gain more power, and fights that can split reality in two. For something weirder, there's Hideo Kojima's Death Stranding. Part hiking simulator in the post-apocalypse, part courier simulator, and all WTF, it's a strange but haunting look at a world on the edge of extinction.

There's also a few recent releases in this special, and now that some time has passed for them to get patched up, they might be worth considering. Gotham Knights is a competent action sandbox, Tales of Arise is an enchanting action-RPG, and Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection is all the charm of the GBA classics ported over to modern systems.
