The SXSW Texas Steam Sale Has Games Up To 75% Off This Weekend

These deals are fantastic.


As the SXSW Gaming Festival kicks off today in Austin, there's another way the rest of us who aren't there can get in on the fun (well, sort of): by heading to Steam. The Texas Sale from SXSW Gaming has kicked off, so now until Sunday, March 17, you can get discounts as high as 75% off on an amazing batch of games. Here's a quick look at the best deals:

Both Borderlands and Borderlands 2 are 75% off right now, and with Gearbox Software teasing an announcement for Borderlands 3 at this year's PAX East, there's no better time to dive in and get acquainted with this stellar series. While Borderlands' standard edition isn't on sale, its Game of the Year edition is for just $7.49; meanwhile, Borderlands 2 is only $5.

On sale for just $3.29, Dishonored is an absolute steal right now. The stealth action game is set in a city struck by plague and full of infected citizens, and your character is an assassin named Corvo, who is pursuing revenge.

Prey is marked down 50%, so you can get it for just $15 this weekend. The survival horror first-person shooter is set in a space station that's been overrun by hostile aliens, and you play as a character named Morgan, who must explore the station and attempt to escape.

Packed with adrenaline-pumping action, the 2016 reboot of Doom is marked down to just $15 (25% off) this weekend. Playing as a space marine, you'll battle your way through Hell while fighting literal demons using a variety of different guns and other weapons.

The entire Banner Saga series is on sale too, both individually and with a few different bundle options. The strategy RPG, which is deeply impacted by players' choices, is set in a world inspired by Viking legends and centers around a war between humans and an ancient race known as the Dredge.
