The best gaming deals this week

Listen up, Chooms: The Phantom Liberty expansion for Cyberpunk 2077 doesn’t become available until Sep. 25 (Sept. 26 on consoles), but if you want to get up to speed on everything included with the massive 2.0 update, you should take some time this weekend to get reacquainted with the streets of Night City. Beyond overhauling the perk and skill trees, the 2.0 update brings vehicular combat, a revamped Cyberware system, and a slew of graphical improvements.

Right now, you can pick up a copy of Cyberpunk 2077 for $35.99 (normally $59.99) and reserve the Phantom Liberty expansion for $29.99. The base game is actually a bit cheaper on PlayStation, where you can get a digital copy for $29.99.

A few other games that similarly aren’t so new have been making waves with recent updates as well. Sea of Thieves’ next season is adding a more chill game mode with PvP disabled, and is currently enjoying a free storyline themed around The Secret of Monkey Island. If you’ve never had the chance to participate in this cooperative high seas adventure for Xbox and PC, you can currently pick up a copy for $19.99 from Steam. If you’d rather subscribe to Game Pass for Xbox or PC, the game is available for no extra cost there.

Titanfall 2, a game that fans have furiously wished for a sequel to, has been updated recently. EA fixed its official matchmaking, which had gone to hell over the years. This sudden attention is odd, and has caused lots of folks around the internet to suspect that EA may have an announcement in store for fans. Will it be Titanfall 3, or just a cool tie-in with Apex Legends? Who knows?

What we do know is that if you never had the opportunity to play this game in its heyday, we recommend picking up a discounted copy from Amazon. I guarantee it’ll be the best $2.99 you’ve spent today.

This past week, the open-world zombie survival simulator, State of Decay 2, also received a welcome update. The Curveball Update adds new static or randomized modifiers to your playthrough, reanimating this five-year-old title. While State of Decay 2 has been a Game Pass staple since its launch, you can pick it up from Xbox for just $8.99 if you’d prefer to own it forever.

The Xbox Elite Series 2 Core controller dropped to its lowest price ever this week, and it’s still available for $99.99 if you still want to get in on the deal. Normally $129.99, the “Core” controller delivers the same performance as its more expensive sibling, but doesn’t come packaged with the bits that allow for greater customization. The Elite Series 2 Core controller ditches the charging case, back paddles, and alternate thumbsticks in favor of a lower price point. However, you can always purchase these accessories and tack them on at a later date.

The Baseus Power Bank is one of our favorite battery packs for the Steam Deck, ROG Ally, or really anything with a USB-C port requiring low to medium levels of power. You can pick up the 20,000 mAh version at Amazon for $47.99 when you clip the on-page coupon. This beefy power bank features a pair of 30 W USB-A outputs, but it can also charge more power-hungry devices thanks to its 65 W-compatible USB-C port. If you need something with even more juice, the 30,000mAh model for $63.99 is likely the better option for you.
