Jelly Deals: Digital discounts for this week

Cut-price games from Humble, GamesPlanet, GOG and more.

A note from the editor: Jelly Deals is a deals site launched by our parent company, Gamer Network, with a mission to find the best bargains out there. Look out for the Jelly Deals roundup of reduced-price games and kit every Saturday on Eurogamer.

Since it is (allegedly) summertime, a bunch of online retailers who happen to sell digital PC games are offering up Summer Sales, making some nice discounts on a wide variety of downloadable games for the personal computer. If you're the type to like your video games digital and the majority of your money is still in your bank account, some of these deals may appeal.

GamesPlanet's Summer Sale

We'll start things off with the Summer Sale range over at GamesPlanet. There, you'll find a new set of deals every 24 hours from right now all the way up to Sunday 20th August. Each day's flash deals see a nice price slash on top of the range's already discounted prices. At time of writing, here are some of the best on offer. Prices are in GBP but should be roughly equivalent in your local currency.

Humble Bundle offerings

The folks at Humble Bundle have a couple of deals running right now. The most recent of these (and perhaps most unexpected) is the brand new Humble Comics Bundle - the Transformers vs. GI Joe bundle. From $1 all the way up to $25, you can get a huge stack of digital comics based on Transformers and GI Joe (or Action Force, as it was known when I was a kid).

Elsewhere at Humble, you can find a batch of discounts on titles published by Idea Factory. For anyone who doesn't know, that essentially means a lot of JRPG and otherwise quite Japanese-oriented titles like Hyperdimension Neptunia and Fairy Fencer F.

XCOM 2: War of the Chosen from Green Man Gaming

XCOM 2: War of the Chosen is the weekly offer at Green Man Gaming right now, which means you can get yourself a pre-order of the expansion just ahead of launch for £26.24 or your local currency equivalent. For that price, you'll get a Steam key for the game at launch, by the way.

And one last thing...

Okay, this one is neither a PC title nor a downloadable offer but it's too good to not include here. For the next few hours, No Man's Sky is reduced to £9.99 on PS4 in its boxed form. Coming fresh off the heels of the game's rather massive update this past week, there has seemingly never been a better time to grab a copy of this one. While stock lasts, of course.

That's all for now, although obviously not nearly the end of the deals available. Check back soon for more stuff, including in the weekly Jelly Deals roundup this Saturday.
