Steam Black Friday Discounts For Red Dead 2, Outer Worlds, GTA 5, And More
Fanatical is offering some steep game discounts for its Black Friday 2019 sale.
Black Friday 2019 deals continue to roll out. Steam's Black Friday sale is underway, but that doesn't mean it has the best prices; oftentimes, the best deals on PC games for Steam come from elsewhere. Case in point, digital games store Fanatical has jumped into the Black Friday fray, offering more savings on the year's hottest games, a number of which are redeemable on Steam. The Fanatical Black Friday sale continues until November 29 and offers a variety of unique deals on well-known games, including Red Dead Redemption 2 and Borderlands 3, while also showing off some of the more obscure and overlooked games from recent years.
What sets Fanatical's online sale apart from others are the unique flash sales happening every 24 hours. Every day of the week-long sale will cycle in a new set of games that can be purchased at a more significant discount than usual. In addition to the flash sales, other games on sale include Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Superhot VR, NBA 2K20, and Civilization VI. Even more recent games are discounted as well; in addition to the aforementioned RDR2, The Outer Worlds can be had for less than $45.
Best Christmas Deals
Like other digital distribution sites, Fanatical will send you a code for each purchase, which will need to be redeemed at their respective gaming clients. As an example, Red Dead Redemption 2 can be played on the Rockstar Games Launcher, while Borderlands 3 is playable on the Epic Games Store client.
In addition to these deals, Fanatical is also offering further discounts with the use of promo codes. On Fanatical's front page, you'll find a special promo code BLACK10 for up to 10% off with any purchase. However, you can also use our exclusive promo code, GAMESPOT11, which will give you 11% off your entire haul. (Unfortunately, you can only use one promo code at a time, so stacking multiple ones will not work. It also can't be used on pre-orders or Red Dead Redemption 2.)
There are several other big games included in this sale, one of which is Borderlands 3. Released in September, the game was largely well-received, offering a pretty satisfying return to the Borderlands universe. In GameSpot's Borderlands 3 review, editor Jordan Ramée wrote, "The game's character-driven narrative acts as a satisfying finale for the loot-shooter franchise, and the new mechanics and features--especially the reworked skill trees and weapon manufacturer effects--give you plenty of agency in how you want to play through it."
