Total War Warhammer and Overwatch Release Day Discounts

Total War Warhammer and Overwatch Release Day Discounts

Warhammer Me Cheaply.

One of the biggest releases in strategy games this year is Creative Assembly's Total War: Warhammer. The game launched today for the usual $59.99 Total War price tag, but GMG has a 20% off code knocking the Steam key down to $47.99. If Total War: Warhammer is similar to its previous Total War installments, like such as Rome II, it should keep its $60 list price for years to come.

Another huge launch this week is Overwatch, and surprisingly there's discounts on console versions. The Origins Edition has been marked down from $60 to only $48.99 at Walmart. Discount valid on the PS4 and Xbox One. Sold out for PC at this price.

Now that Overwatch is out, the May 3rd release Battleborn probably saw a huge sales decline. In response they've dropped the price of Battleborn to $39.99 on their own site and allowing 3rd party sellers discounts as well. The best is GMG, where instantly there's a mark down to $36 PLUS a stacking 25% off coupon code making a final total of $26.99 for the Standard Edition. The Deluxe is also on sale with the same 55% mark down from $75 to only $33.74.

For anyone in the market for a PS4 the place to buy is NewEgg. There the PS4 Call of Duty: Black Ops III bundle price was raised from $350 to $379 but tossed into the bundle is copy of Star Wars: Battlefront and this week's release Overwatch. The games separately at their best prices online add up to a $79, so a nice PS4 bundle bonus.

wait you have to pay for Overwatch and Battleborn? I thought they were just team fortress 2 or LOL wannabees that get their money through selling skins

With OW you can buy loot boxes that contain cosmetics or just unlock them during gameplay. I think it's a similar deal with Battleborn but I hadn't followed it nearly as closely. I can't help but to laugh that Battleborn went on sale for over half off right when OW launched.

Isn't Warlords of Draenor free now? How are they still selling it?

TF2 was pay to play for many years with a cash shop at the same time. Overwatch being pay to play isn't really surprising. Battleborn on the other hand is a $60 MOBA ($80 here in Canada) with a $20 season pass. Battleborn also only has 6 heroes playable out of the 25. The rest are locked behind challenges or just grinding levels.

Battleborn should have been either free or cheaper than full price. Its pulling Evolve style mistakes.

Team fortress 2 had to be bought originally too.

I have read some of the reviews for Total Warhammer. While most say it's very fun, they also say it lacks depth.

Yeah I can second that. The campaign is about as deep as the last ones were. I would say a little less then shogun, though the individual race-mechanics certainly add a nice flair to it and make it a bit more interesting.
They finally managed to do a good job with the AI though. Without a doubt the best battle-AI I had ever had in a Total War game. The armies coordinate well with reinforcements on the battlefield and try to flank you troops with skirmishers and cavalry and they do that fairly well.
I even had one siege battle were the AI managed to capture my flag by sneakily attacking another wall while I was occupied elsewhere. Granted that was more because I didn't relealise that the town towers would only give me sight and shoot when I had units stationed nearby, but it's still way more impressive than any other TW AI. So I can recommend it if your mostly in it for the battles. If not, then why are you not playing CK2 or Eu4. TW has never really been THAT deep on the campaign map.

weirdly all the crash to desktop issues i was having with warhammer seem to of been solved with reducing unit sizes from ultra to large. no idea why it works but the game has been rock solid stable since i did that.

i second the comment about the battle AI. its a sneaky sod now and you really have to take advantage of pause to keep an eye on things. so far im slowly fighting back the chaos hordes as the vampire counts, helps that regions friendly to undead are also toxic to everything else including undead
