The Crew Pre-Order Discounted as Closed Beta Hits
image

Pre-ordering The Crew gets you ticket to next week's beta access.

Eagerly anticipating this fall's release of the racing action RPG The Crew? From August 25th through August 29th next week, Ubisoft will launch a closed beta for the PC version of the game. If you pre-order before Monday you will be guaranteed with day-one access to the beta, plus you'll receive a healthy 20% off the MSRP

You can also pre-order at Steam Store or Uplay Shop for access to the same closed beta, but no discounts are available at the two respective stores. The 20% off pre-order deal also applies to the pricier The Crew Gold Edition, but you're still looking at about $68 for a digital game. Your call if the additional in-game content are worth the price of admission.

Fable Anniversary FINALLY makes its Steam PC debut on September 12th. Just yesterday it became available for pre-order on Steam, where you'll find a solid 20% off discount dropping the price from $34.99 to $27.99. Today it got even better. The UK digital retailer Green Man Gaming made Fable available for pre-order on their site with that same 20% instant discount AND provides a stacking 20% off coupon code dropping the price to $22.40 (36% off!).

Since its June debut, the off road simulator Spintires has been a popular Youtube/Twitch game. This week it finally has a decent price drop from the $29.99 list price. GMG launched a 33% instant discount to $20, and with that same 20% off coupon mentioned above for Fable drops the price to a new lowest ever of $16.

Updated 8/21: Fixed some formatting and typo issues in the post. Sorry about that!
